Life’s biggest security is having a back-up plan and knowing how to use it. I have grown up in a modernizing Indian family where women oscillate between old ways of life and exercising authority.

This left her only half-equipped to use the policy when the time came. The reason being, men in the family take the lead when it … [Read more...] about Life Insurance Affairs—No More a Men-Only World
