I suffer a bit from a social anxiety disorder, and as a result, I absolutely despise "making small talk" with anyone because it makes me very self conscious and uncomfortable, so I know how you feel.

Also when going in a auto (three wheeler taxi that can fit 2-3 people), I have found it pays to be patient. Might come across 4-5 drivers who want to charge extra. especially if your a ...

Electronic noise-cancelling headphones will both keep you from interacting with people and will kill some of the noise (especially aircraft noise).

Cathay/Dragon air free baggage allowance is 20KG for Economic class, but my experience 2 weeks ago in Heathrow tells you can put not more than around 24KG. Cathay/Dragon extra bag charge is based on weight. It charges US$20 per KG from China(ZONE1) to Delhi(ZONE2), which means the extra bag costs you $460, around half of your ticket price

I have traveled with two laptops before several times. I carry one laptop in my carry-on luggage and another in my checked bags. It was fine. Nobody asked me anything through immigration check or security check. It is very common these days for one person to carry couple of gadgets with them while travelling due to work or other reasons. If asked in the ...
