2021 is here and social media feeds everywhere are filled with New Year's resolutions. If you want to be healthier, that is a positive thing. But why are we so obsessed with weight loss? We are taught from a young age that being fat is a bad thing, but that's simply not true.

Don’t let the inevitable culture shock scare you away from having an amazing experience in India. It is a life-changing one.
When it comes to mental health, my feed has been flooded with people telling others to “just be kind” and in theory, that is a lovely message. However, you can be kind until you are blue in the face and mental illness would still be a major issue in our society.
