    How sad. Why can't Indian authorities publish helpline numbers for tourists just in case of emergency ? God know for how many days she is dead and the daughter had to fly all the way till Goa to check on her mother.

    Please India, please be a bit more responsible while you seek foreign funds through tourism. Understand how we Indians will be helpless under such circumstance and the troubles if we are to go there to check on our family members.
