I have been inspired to travel far and wide by my life partner Sanjiv Gupta. He has trained extensively and summited major peaks in inclement weather.
As a physician practising medicine for the last three decades I have been actively involved in providing care to travellers during medical emergencies. This has included evacuation by air or road, treatment and rehabilitation and repatriation back home. This has led me to an understanding of the intricacies of travel medicines, a multi-disciplinary team approach and dealing with the nuances of insurance companies and airlines. As a passenger, I have taken part in handling mid-air emergencies and decisions for emergency landing on numerous occasions.
