Kochi – Land of Backwaters! #Travelogue

                                                            Source
It was a Friday evening and I had a long weekend
ahead of me waiting with no plans. I did not wanted to spend all of it in
Coimbatore, my training location. I looked up for the places around and found
out my cousin in the Navy stationed at Kochi. “You can catch the morning
bus if you get up early”, that’s what my mind said but my habit of
sleeping late kept everything in suspense. I went off to sleep packing my small
bag sincerely hoping to get up and make it to the nearby bus depot. To my luck,
it was some day as I got up by 5 in the morning and by 5:30, I was in the bus
sleeping again hoping to see Kochi by noon.
The Journey from Coimbatore started by 0600 hours
and I was awake by 0730 when the Volvo stopped for breakfast. I removed my
curtains and it was a bliss, in the middle of nowhere with all the greenery
around, shading the bus completely. I got down, splashed my face with water and
here was my morning – Serenely placed in the greens of Kerala. When in Rome, be
a Roman, and so was I, sitting at the breakfast table with a banana leaf topped
with Idli – Vada – Sambhar and Coconut Chutney, in short heaven.
The bus took off after a while and the journey
witnessing the splendid landscapes continued, the journey from Coimbatore to
Kochi is mostly dominated by boring straight national highway with few
stretches of beautiful state highways. I could see backwaters and coconut trees
hanging low on them throughout and it was refreshing. The Weather was slowly
becoming humid, expected due to the shores and I could see Ernakulam boards
hanging around. Being a native of North India, I had heard Ernakulam mostly
with a suffix “Express” for the trains which commuted down south. I
asked one of my fellow passengers and he told that Kochi is a city in the
Ernakulam district of the state. I did not know that, was a new one. The bus
stopped at Willingdon Island ending the journey.
My cousin was staying at this island which was
close by to the historical locality of “Mattancherry”, the island was
full of huge ships of Navy and proud officers in uniform. Patriotism hits a new
high every time I get into such surroundings. My cousin came to pick me up at
the Gate where I had to show my identity card and log my details. We went to
his house, typical huge government quarter and surprisingly well maintained. We
got out for a late lunch at Naushad’s, a famous food chain there and had a steamed
pomfret with spices in banana leaf. It was amazing, till date I long to go back
to Kerala and have the same dish again. “We work on Saturdays you
civilian”, he said and left for work again after dropping me back. He had
given me instructions on how to take the ferry to Mattancherry and go around,
as expected from the independent defence brother.
                                                   Source
I took the ferry to Mattancherry from a dock near
Taj Malabar, another marvel of the Taj Hotels. This was a new experience,
travelling alone, exploring a new place alone, the ferry, the people and
Mattancherry. It took hardly about 10 minutes to get on the other side and I
was on my feet, exploring the old town. 
Mattancherry is mostly a historically
rich site hosting the grand Mattancherry Palace, a Synagogue, Classic Old
Churches and a beautiful beach with all kind of flea markets. When you walk
here, you can feel time sliding into the older eras seeing the old houses with
vintage doors and windows. I took plenty of pictures, thanks to my Canon point
and shoot camera.
I covered all of it and sat on the bench at the
beach for a while watching the fishermen catching fishes using the Chinese
fishnets, the sun too went low and it was a beautiful evening as I took the
ferry back to Willingdon island where my cousin was waiting at the dock. Later,
we went to few local eat outs, had dinner and crashed to sleep by 10 as next
morning we had planned to drive around Kochi and Old Ernakulam town.
And as planned we were on the streets exploring
the town, but weather had a different plan as it started pouring, so we had to
return back. It was a blessing in disguise, as my cousin took me inside the
huge naval ships and one word for it – unbelievable. It was really unbelievable
how complex these ships were and the operational procedure they had, it was so
much of patience and hard work managing the whole ship. 
I soaked it in, it was
really a proud moment to see one of our biggest defence weapons in its
calmness.
The day passed by exploring more about the naval
base and its history and the tasty tandoori chicken at the canteen, and it was
night. One thing I did not like about Kochi was that the commercial areas shut
very early, it was almost lull by 2100. We had another meal at Naushad’s as I
was asked to choose. Had the same fish again and went back and slept.
Next morning, I took the Volvo back to Coimbatore
after my cousin gifted me- I love Kochi t-shirt.

It was a refreshing trip and Mattancherry remains
the place in my mind for another visit whenever time permits next.

Apollo Munich introduces WINSURE! #Insurance


A new category in health insurance by launching first-of-its-kind Health Wallet plan


Indore,
December 16, 2017:
In an endeavor to offer a unique
winning proposition to its customers, Apollo Munich Health Insurance (AMHI) today introduced a new category ‘WINSURE’ with its
revolutionary WIN-WIN health insurance plan called ‘HEALTH WALLET’. This
one-of-a-kind policy is set to redefine the health insurance category by
addressing pertinent questions such as value for money, ease and great service.
Health Wallet not only addresses the current needs of the customers by paying
for their hospitalization and OPD expenses that are usually not covered by
health insurance policies, but also ensures affordability of continuing their
policy in later years.
The disruptive and innovative Health
Wallet plan comes with a path-breaking ’RESERVE’
benefit. True to its name, this feature creates a reserve kitty for the
customers that can be used for a variety of out-of-pocket expenses such as speech
therapy, purchase of medicines, vaccinations, dental expenses, diagnostic tests,
spectacles, contact lenses, medical devices like blood pressure and sugar
monitors, oxymeters, prosthetics, consultations with medical practitioner,
physiotherapist, dietician etc. That’s not all, it also allows the user with
the flexibility of paying for ‘non-payable items’ that are generally excluded
from any health insurance. As a unique offering, it pays for other medical
expenses that are not covered under any other medical insurance such as cosmetic
treatment, Alzheimer’s etc. Last but not the least, customers can even use this
reserve amount to fund for co-payment and deductible cost.

Reserve Benefit

– One-of-its-kind product which offers ‘Reserve Benefit’ that pays for a variety of healthcare expenses

-Let’s your money earn for you by offering a 6% bonus on the reserve balance at the time of the renewal

The most
interesting part of the RESERVE
benefit is that it lets your money earn for you. Every year the unused reserve
amount gets carried forward and earns a 6% bonus. This accumulated reserve kitty
can in turn be used to pay up to 50% of the renewal premium, post 5 continuous
renewals. It is unarguably a new milestone in health insurance industry that
addresses the Indian savings and returns mindset and allows the customers to
fund for their health insurance premium in the later years.
Speaking on this announcement, Suraj Mishra: CEO –
South & Central Zone, Apollo Munich Health Insurance
said, “With changing lifestyles, healthcare needs of Indians are changing at
a rapid pace and with this, we believe it is imperative for the health
insurance sector to redefine itself to cater to the evolving needs of
customers. With respect to healthcare financing there are three major insights
at hand and perhaps also the reason for low health insurance penetration. One –
India ranks 183 out of 189 countries on account of out of pocket expenses,
which means almost 70% of healthcare expenses incurred is out of pocket. Two –
Indian customers are probably most judicious as they always look for great
value for money and it has been imbibed in their minds to save money and plan
for their future. Three – Post retirement people are worried about funding
health insurance premiums. These pertinent concern areas of customers lead us
to re-invent the industry. Today we are proud to be the pioneers in leading
this change for our sector and introducing a new category WINSURE, along with a
revolutionary product – “Health Wallet” which addresses all of the above
concerns”.

“Health
Wallet, a next-gen product has been designed to address various dilemmas people
have while buying health insurance and caters to their complete healthcare
financing needs. Health Wallet is set to create a new vocabulary under the
premise of ‘WIN-WIN’ deal. It’s an absolute WIN when all your healthcare needs
from OPD to hospitalisation to emergency are addressed by a single plan and
also a WIN your money earns for your tomorrow. With this, we strongly believe
that we will bring change in the communities at large through our distinctive
offering and will continue our endeavour in making India a health confident
nation.”

Additionally, at the
event, Mr. Jacob introduced Bollywood celebrity, Farhan Akhtar as the brand
ambassador of the Company
. He is an eminent multi-facet personality,
who has succeeded in various aspects of life from being an actor, writer,
director, songwriter to a doting father and fitness enthusiast. Sharing his
views on the association, Farhan Akhtar
opined, “I have
always believed that healthcare is not a privilege but a right. In a country
where on one hand healthcare is becoming so sophisticated that people around
the world come to India for treatment; on the other hand most Indians can’t
afford these services. It saddens me to know that over 7 crore families in India
get pushed below poverty line every year while trying to tend to the healthcare
needs of their loved one. Seeing what an unforeseen health episode can do to a
family, I believe health insurance is a necessity for all as it not only
enables access to quality healthcare but also protects the dreams of a family.
I feel a sense of pride to be associated with the concept of health insurance
and more so with Apollo Munich for their passion and purpose of making India
health confident.”

For customers
who can take care of the first few lakhs of healthcare expenses either with
their personal funds or corporate insurance policies, Health Wallet also comes
with a deductible option. By opting for deductible, the customer chooses how
much expense he/she will be able to take care of in case of a health emergency.
KEY FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT INCLUDE
§  Reserve Benefit –

earn for you, helps you secure your retirement. Reserve benefit has been

is carried forward also earns a 6% bonus at the time of renewal. And the good
news is, that you can pay upto50% of your renewal premium from the accrued
Reserve benefit post 5 continuous renewals.

American India Foundation (AIF) and Coca-Cola India launches ‘SMS Mission Recycling’ to Sensitize School Children on Waste Management and Recycling

The program takes the
success of SMS Mission 1000 to the next level by increasing the scope of
positive impact to 11 lakh children in over 5000 schools
Coca-Cola
India along with American India Foundation (AIF) today launched the SMS Mission
Recycling with the aim to sensitize children from over 5000 schools on waste management after realizing
a successful Support
My School (SMS) Mission 1000 schools
. The project seeks to contribute towards the
government’s
cleanliness mission and will focus on proper collection and segregation of waste including Polyethylene
Terephthalate (PET).
The
SMS Mission Recycling initiative aims to promote better waste management practices
through adoption of efficient collection and segregation methods to facilitate
recycling. Aligned to the Government’s Swachh Bharat, Swachh Vidyalaya (Clean
India Clean Schools) Mission, the programme will also be looking to setup or
facilitate waste management systems in communities as well as schools.In the first phase of the program,
Coca-Cola India has partnered with the American India Foundation (AIF) to positively
impact an estimated 11 lakh children in over 5000 government schools nationwide
and over 1 lakh community members on the long-term benefits of proper solid
waste management.
Nishant Pandey,
CEO of American India Foundation
said, “Building on our experience of driving
awareness of sanitation & hygiene issues across schools in India, we
believe that engaging students with waste management and recycling concepts
will give them a deeper understanding of the huge role that sustainability
plays in our future. We’re excited to partner with Coca-Cola on the Support My
School – Mission Recycling campaign which aims to reach 5000 schools across 10
states in order to give children the chance to build a cleaner tomorrow and a
sustainable future.”


T. Krishnakumar, President, Coca-Cola India and South West Asia, said, “We believe that sustainable development should be at the heart of
everything that we do and we must collaborate with our partners to find and
develop solutions for a sustainable future. We are now excited to launch SMS
Mission Recycling in association with American India Foundation to create
awareness among school children and communities on proper ways to implement waste
segregation and recycling. Children are change agents for a better tomorrow.
They have the influence to sensitize their communities and as the future of our
country, they grow up aligned to such environmental causes.”
The first edition of
Support My School had a positive impact on over 3.5lakh school children in more
than 1000 schools across the country. During this journey, thousands of
toilets, urinals and wash stations were revitalised and hundreds of playgrounds
were established in disadvantaged schools. Support My School addressed the WASH
(Swachh Bharat, Swachh Vidyalaya) needs and contributed meaningfully to the
government’s ‘Swachh Bharat’ drive, and the revitalized schools now serve as
model schools in several districts.
Avijeet Kumar, Chief Operational Officer, Charities Aid
Foundation (CAF)
—the first implementation partner of SMS Mission 1000 said, “Support My School is an innovative
campaign aimed at transforming lives of thousands of children across the
country and we are extremely proud to be associated with it. From educating
children about rain water harvesting, to ensuring access to proper sanitation,
the campaign has helped promoting positive environment in schools.
Interventions such as these are important to address the broad socio-economic
gap and educational inequalities in our country. The impact seen in 1000
schools through this campaign has been extremely satisfying.

Bhushan Tuladhar, Regional Technical Advisor, South
Asia –
UN-HABITAT said,“Our congratulations
to all partners and friends of the Support My School (SMS) campaign for
achieving “SMS Mission 1000”. It is a remarkable that the campaign has reached
