Section 377 India

The Morning of September 6, 2018, was different for a lot of people around the country, many of whom had gathered at cafés, organizations and even parks to see the coverage of the Supreme Court’s hearing on the Section 377 case. At 11:20 AM the CJI, who also headed the constitutional Bench of the top court in this case, stated that the court will read out the judgment after a quick break. Hearts were racing and anxiety was increasing, though the arguments were fair from the side of the petitioners, their ground was strong and every person of logic believed in their cause, the political narrative in the country in the recent past exhibited signs of dissent in the matter. People were confident but the shape intolerance had taken in the last few years, they were scared and were trying to make peace with the worst if it had to come.

Soon the Bench assembled again and the CJI proceeded to deliver the judgment, summarizing a 400 odd page long judgment, he said: “the Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code, which criminalises sexual acts between consenting adults of male-male sex, female-female sex or even male-female sex is rendered unconstitutional”. This de-criminalised the previously criminalized act of sexual intercourse between persons of same-sex as well as opposite-sex which was colonially termed unnatural or against the law of nature. The judgment and courts finding therein were elaborate and covered social stigmas as well as freedom of life and personal liberty. To sum it all, the court decided in favour of freedom, in this case, sexual freedom.

A statement by Justice R.F. Nariman who constituted the five-member bench made me ponder, he essentially meant to say that this de-criminalisation is in due alignment with the constitution but there is a pressing need for educating and sensitizing the authorities at various levels of administration, especially the police, so that this social change can fade-in to the beautiful fabric of the country. I personally resonate with this, the courts function to restore justice (which is highly subjective!) but then some locus stands on us as citizens to accept the decision of the court, which isn’t really a decision made by the court, but essentially an explanation of the freedoms that the constitution envisages to its citizens.

Now that section 377 is amended and only criminalises sexual acts involving minors and animals, it becomes a perfect setting to understand what the letters in the LGBTQIA abbreviations mean and how do they pan out. It’s an honest disclaimer that what I write hereon, will be based on what I have learnt and understood over the great ocean of the internet and some conversations with people who understand these terms a little more than I do.

When I heard about these terms more than 10 years ago, there were only four letters commonly used to group various sexual and gender minorities: L, G, B and T. To me these letters were an evolution in themselves toward inclusion (social, mainly!); an expansion of the language used to represent a disparate group that had often just been called “the gay community.” Despite their intent, the letters proved to be limiting.

As times and attitudes changed, the language used to discuss sexual orientation and gender identity also changed, or perhaps evolved. As a result, the established L.G.B.T. abbreviation acquired a few extra letters and a cluster of ancillary terminology around both sexuality and gender. Not everyone has adopted them yet though. To understand these we need to separate the biological sex of a person from their gender identity, otherwise, we might find ourselves more confused than we were before.

The letters “L” and “G” stand for Lesbian and Gay, gay” and “lesbian” are as basic as it gets. As “homosexual” began to feel clinical and pejorative, gay became the de rigueur mainstream term to refer to same-sex attraction in the late 1960s and early ’70s, till this time, India and Indians were not quite aware of the term socially, but I’m sure there were people coming out and aligning themselves with these identities or orientations (to be diplomatic enough). Gradually, as what was then called the gay liberation movement gained steam, the phrase “gay and lesbian” became more popular as a way to highlight the similar-yet-separate issues faced by women in the fight for tolerance. Gay is still sometimes used as an umbrella term, but these days, it also refers specifically to men, as in “gay men and lesbians.”

The letter “B” stands for Bisexual referring to a person who is attracted to people of the same-sex as well as people of the opposite sex. Unlike popular opinion, it is in no means a middle path between a straight person (people who are attracted to people of the opposite gender) and a gay person (to include the term lesbian). Also referred to as “Bi” many believe that this term isn’t inclusive enough as it relates to the male-female binary.

The letter “T” stands for Transgender which refers to someone whose gender identity or expression or both in many cases are different from the biological sex assigned to them at the time of birth. To be diplomatically correct let’s just say these are non-cisgender (gender identity and expression same as the biological sex) identities.

The addition of the letter “Q” became increasingly popular during the start of the 21st century. Some insisted this stood for “questioning,” representing people who were uncertain of their sexual orientations or gender identities. Others declared it was for “queer,” a catchall term that has shed its derogatory origins and is gaining acceptance.

The letter “I” stands for Intersex, which encapsulates someone born with biological sex characteristics that aren’t traditionally associated with male or female bodies. Intersexuality does not refer to sexual orientation or identity.

The letter “A” stands for Asexual or Ace is someone who experiences little or no sexual attraction.

The symbol “+” in this regard is not a mathematical symbol but denotes everything on the gender and sexuality spectrum which words and letters can’t describe yet.

The list of sexual preferences and orientation doesn’t end here and is not very comprehensive to human understanding at the moment as it is still in an evolving stage, with many concepts and feelings that are yet to be codified into letters words and expression. Having said that, there are a few other words which constitute the expression we are talking about, such as-

PANSEXUAL, someone who is attracted to people of all gender identities or someone who is attracted to a person’s qualities regardless of their gender identity. Once a more niche term used by academics, pansexual is gaining social acceptability as a term after singer Miley Cyrus identified as pansexual in 2015.

NONBINARY is a person who identifies as neither male nor female and sees themselves outside the gender binary. This is sometimes shortened to N.B. or enby. Often people conferring to this expression use non-gender\non-binary terms like they and them instead of him and her in their use of the language. GENDERQUEER, another term often used to describe someone whose gender identity is outside the strict male/female binary. They may exhibit both traditionally masculine and feminine qualities and neither. GENDER FLUID, a term used by people whose identity shifts or fluctuates. Sometimes these individuals may identify or express themselves as more masculine on some days, and more feminine on others. Even though these terms may sound similar or alike, but they are not, they may not be separated from each other by a huge distance but they encapsulate different things.

Polyamory is a practice/way of life where the person is believed to be capable of loving more than one individual in all aspects of love and attraction. In practice it is different from polygamy as here all individuals in the circle are aware of the presence of another partner or their partner and are accepting of it, here the partners are not restricted and bonded to each other by means of sexual attraction alone, rather they practice as more holistic approach towards love and various aspects of it. In this practice, a partners partner is often referred to as a metamours.

This list and my way of understanding the terms may not be perfect, I beg pardon if any person or sections of person believe otherwise. But this is a small step for me to try and spread the word about various known sexualities and even the ones yet to be discovered to speak out about. It is my earnest request to whoever reads this post, to educate people around about these things and more importantly, emphasise on the fact that this is basic choice and freedom, as basic as freedom to choose between eating pasta or burger, let’s not let the societal stigma bog us down.

In the end, Love is Love and the freedom to express it is your own.

Ps. And this is important, Indian law has de-criminalised the erstwhile section 377 but that itself doesn’t make same-sex marriages legal, nor does it mean that we would see more physical display of affection on the street, this is not a means of social obstruction at all, it is a freedom which the citizen deserves and is finally protected for them. But yes this decision will make way for same-sex marriages in India to hopefully legalise it.

PMO India

Arrays of Management Gurus and thinkers have emphasized on the qualities and importance of a great (team) leader. John C. Maxwell was recorded describing a leader as “…the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way”. The Oxford dictionary defines a leader as “a person who leads a group of people, organisation or a country”. In all available definitions of the term and its understanding by thinkers, the common thread is the emphasis on the word “lead” and “team”. A leader is distinguished from a manager by the qualities of showing the way along with managing the group while doing it.

Andrew Carnage once said “no person will become a great leader who wants to do it all himself or get all the credit”, it is think a thought which envisages for me the greatest quality of a leader, empowering the team and showing the way, taking the blame and sharing the credit. In today’s India, we have politicians and officeholders who claim to be leaders but do not deliver on any of the qualities a leader should have. It might just be the trick of the trade or in most probability an intelligent way to keep one’s shoes clean; sling the mud so that you don’t have to dirty your hands cleaning your shoes.

India’s federal structure derives its strength from de-centralization of power between the states and the centre; it further de-centralizes the power on various subjects/matters to ministries and administrative wings created to serve specific interests along with states and centre alike. There are numerous reasons behind this, one of my favourites’ is the notion that every subject and field has its own nuances and it is imperative to understand these nuances before managing the field. But this is not what seems to be happening in the current government discourse in India.

I mince no words in stating that the current Prime-Minister’s Office (PMO) is the most centralized and powerful in the history of independent India. From spearheading the Swach Bharat campaign to boosting Make in India, the PMO has been at the helm of it all. As one Bharatiya Janata Party leader quipped, “There is only one office in the government now. That’s the Prime Minister’s Office”. Indeed it is, anything from formulating economic policies to ushering in administrative reforms, from launching and overseeing important schemes and policies of the Govt. to directions for key postings in the government to being the go-to office for business and industry, from setting the tone of the Independence Day speech to hosting marquee start-ups in mega shows, the PMO seems to be at the center of it all.

For me, Modi’s all-powerful PMO has attracted attention because of its uber-secretive and strongly centralised style of policy-making which stands in sharp contrast to Manmohan Singh’s 10-year stint and, indeed, the first term of the National Democratic Alliance under Atal Bihari Vajpayee. I wrote in a previous post that the PMO had sent a directive to the Niti Ayog asking them to produce “desired” data on job creation with an aim to substantiate the claims made by the Finance Minister in the Parliament. Doesn’t it sound strange? The PMO is seeking validation for statements made by the Finance Ministry! Yes, there needs to be a chain binding all the ministries of the government, and the chain is rightfully the PMO, but then it should not in any regard undermine the portfolio of ministries under it.

There is a reason why we do not have a 1000 member PMO, instead, we have a 100 member PMO and 50+ member different ministries. This makes way for specific ministries and units of the government to deliver on specific subjects and matters. The PMO, in my opinion, should act is a guiding force for all under it, it can show the way but should not direct in a “do it or otherwise” manner. De-centralisation may not be a full-proof form of administration but with an effective central authority watching over smaller units, it becomes the tool for democratic strength.

Whereas, centralization of power of most ministries undermines their individual existence and does nothing but make way for implementation problems and sloppy policies. It is because of this that we respect the master of one more than the jack of all. In this case, the PMO might not be even the Jack of all, but it surely presents a master of all image wherever it can.

Implementation of Demonetization and GST portrayed a sorry image of the PMO as after every few days there were changes in policy being brought in with the intent to improve the implementation. Some may see these changes as proactive steps to ensure smooth functioning but I see them as grave mistakes in initial policy formation. Many academicians and industry experts have been recorded critiquing many government policies; it is pertinent to note that most of them do not hold a political position or party-affinity. Their critique in all cases revolves around how proper discussion and brainstorming over policy may have well-shaped it and save the country from the havoc that it caused. It is not important as to how long-lasting the negative impact is, it is important that there should be zero to almost nil negative impact when it is about a policy which shapes the economy of a country.

To conclude I would emphasize on the need to restore power in the units of the democracy. Because each unit has an indispensable role to play and dispensing this role will do nothing but affect the strength of a policy on its core. We do need a strong guiding PMO but not one which acts like a dictator than a leader. It is for you to conclude is the current PMO a leading powerhouse or a budding dictatorship?

On World Animal Day, Its time to celebrate and make this world a better place for them. We are invading their homes by cutting jungles, as a result, animals are dying. Their natural habitat is destroying, animals and other species are getting critically endangered in India and other parts of the world. The whole world needs to wake up and see this as a potential threat to our own mankind if not them. Whole pyramid of the food chain is getting affected as many species are slowly moving towards endangered, critically endangered and some are on the verge of getting extinct. This is not really a good sign.

If seen from a different point of view, animals are not really our enemies. I am sure many of us must have had pets in your childhood, or now as well. We treat roadside animals as they don’t have the right to live. This double nature of people needs to stop. On this world animal day, take a pledge for all these helpless animals to make our surroundings a better place for them to live.

endangered species

India used to be a rich habitat for many species of animals. Some of these Endangered Species are exclusively seen in India. Amongst them, some of the well-known animals are The Asiatic Lion, The Asiatic Cheetah, The Royal Bengal Tiger, fresh water Dolphin, and several other birds.

Major Factors

Firstly, killing animals for their horns, hooves, skin, and even their teeth has to lead to lowering in their numbers. Secondly, sometimes some species move out of their habitat in search of food because of the contamination of land and resources. This is because of the pollution mankind is doing to the earth. Thirdly, and most importantly, due to this greenhouse effect, climate change is one of the biggest factors that is affecting animal habitats. To be precise, we are the cause of the poor condition of many animals.

Other factors include industrialization and housing. Factories dump their toxic waste into rivers and this becomes the reason for the extinction of fishes and aquatic species. Also, this has disturbed the riverside habitat of frogs and several reptiles.

The IUCN Red List Of Threatened Species creates the list of endangered and critically endangered species. Let us see some of the endangered and critically endangered species in India.

Critically Endangered Animals And In India

  • The Himalayan Brown/Red bear. Found in Northeast India and parts of Nepal. Its major threats are loss of suitable habitat and persecution by humans.
  • The Kashmir stag/ Hangul. It is the subspecies of Red deer which is native to India. It is found in riverine dense forests, High Valleys, and mountains of the Kashmir Valley and Northern Chamba and is the state animal of Jammu and Kashmir. Its Major threats are poaching, overgrazing of fields by livestock and also habitat destruction.
  • Sumatran Rhinoceros. Its the smallest and critically endangered of the five rhinoceros species. Thought to be regionally extinct though it once occurred in foothills of the Himalayas an Northeast India. Its threats include poaching and loss of habitat.

Endangered Animals and Birds Of India

1. The Royal Bengal Tiger

These are the most well-known endangered species of India. The Royal Bengal Tiger is Popularly found in Bengal at the saltwater reserve. Due to the Excessive population, increased poaching activities and also, increased water levels in that area. Only a few hundred of them are remaining. Because of getting into villages area or getting into the hands of an animal trader. This poor animal is getting killed for its skin or teeth. There is no Improvement in their number even after the government has increased the laws for the safety of these animals.

2. The Snow Leopard

endangered species
Credits: Snow Leopard

There was a time when the Himalayan region used to have a large number of these feline members of the Big cat family. However, due to the excessive climate change, melting of ice and increased cutting of trees for housing and construction. Only a few hundred are left for in that forest region.

3. The Indian Vulture

There are nine species of vultures that are living in India. But most of them are getting endangered by a sharp decline of 99%. These used to have large wings and are mostly seen in the Peninsula Region. In the study, it is seen likewise that the drug Diclofenac, which is used to ease the pain in animals and cattle, is deadly toxic to vultures. And a lack of vultures means all types of problems. The vultures are on the verge of extinction because of the drug that is banned by the government. This drug is used illegally to treat suffering cattle. And on religious account, the dying cattle are not killed in India, hence they are given this drug. Then the vultures and endangered birds feed on the remains of these cattle.

More than 97% of vultures have disappeared from the skies in the past decade. This is the fastest decline recorded anywhere in the world.

4. Nilgiri Langur

The Nilgiri Langur are found in the Nilgiri Hills of the western ghats. These primates come under the threatened species whose number is decreasing due to poaching and habitat loss. Its major attraction is its black fur, hence, it is also known as Black Langur. One of the major myths that are prevailing. Myth is that the meat of the Nilgiri Langur percieves aphrodisiac capabilities.

A whole racket was exposed, of those who were selling the meat of Nilgiri Langur to the rich and the NRI people who use the medicines prepared from the meat of this animal as a sex stimulant.

5. The Indian River Shark

black buck

Its a poorly known fact that sharks are found in freshwater also. There are only six species of river sharks found in the world out of which the Ganges Shark is endemic to India. This shark is endemic to the Hooghly-Ganges river system in India. These are critically endangered and the rarest species. Like many other species, this species is also threatened because of depravity due to pollution, Overfishing, growth in river use and management. Even though the sharks are protected by the Indian Wildlife Protection Act, the effect of this is still unknown. Only a few numbers of them is remaining. Some are reported to be migrating towards Florida.

6. Black Buck

endangered species

BlackBuck is an endangered species found in India and Nepal. And in India, it is now only seen in sanctuaries and national parks. According to PETA, threats to them include Hunting, destruction of their forest homes, climate change and conflict with villagers. Blackbucks are known for their soft coat, characteristic twisted horns and they are very nervous in nature and sometimes might die because of cardiac arrest only on the face of perceived danger.

7. The Great Indian Bustard

endangered species

These are one of the most well known endangered species in the Indian subcontinent, which is found in parts of Gujarat and Rajasthan. It is one of the heaviest flying birds. In that region, many croplands were for sorghum and millets on which these birds thrived. Now, these have become fields for the production of sugarcane and cotton or grape vineyards. Other major factors include Habitat loss, hunting, and poaching.

8. The Indian Dolphin

ganges dolphin

These Dolphins belong to the cetacea family. It is also the family to which whales also belong. It is also known as the Ganges Dolphins. The Ganga Dolphin was declared India’s National aquatic animal in 2009. Also in 2010, An act was formed for the protection of highly endangered dolphins. But not very much has been done since then.

9. Gharial

gharial

The gharial is India’s special crocodilian species and is critically threatened because of the river pollution, loss of riverine habitats, depletion of fish resources and getting entangled in the fishing nets. Also, the major concern of deaths of gharial near the Chambal river banks and sandy freshwater is pollution.

10. The Dhole (The Indian Wild Dog)

dhole wild dog

These are also known as the Asiatic wild dogs. Despite its precarious status, the Dhole remains one of the very less studied carnivores in the world. India supports the largest number of Dholes with the key population in three landscapes- Mainly the Western Ghats, Central India, and North-East India.

These Asian Wild dogs have very fewer predators that are limited to the large cats roaming the same hunting ground such as Tigers and Leopards. Yet there are actually fewer breeding adult Dholes in the world. Which makes them critically endangered. Humans are by far the biggest threats for these species because we are responsible mainly for their habitat loss as a human settlement into their homes is increasing. Also, industrial deforestation for rubber, timber, wood etc is the major issue as well.

Quality Management

A quality management system is vital for any organization’s performance. Implementing such a system requires a qualified professional. With the right certification, you can be that professional tasked with improving efficiency and output within the organization.

This guide offers an overview of the best certification in quality management, plus insights on what it’s all about.

What is Quality Management?

Quality management is a discipline concerned with ensuring outputs, benefits, and processes to deliver them are fit for purpose and meet stakeholder requirements.

The four key components of quality management are:

  • Quality Planning – Identifying quality standards relevant to projects and figuring out how to meet them.
  • Quality Improvement – Purposeful change of processes to improve confidence or reliability of outcomes.
  • Quality Control – Continuing efforts to uphold the integrity and reliability of processes in achieving outcomes.
  • Quality Assurance – Systematic or planned actions necessary for offering sufficient reliability that services or products will meet specified requirements.

All these involve multiple tools, procedures, and techniques which ensure outputs and benefits meet customer requirements.

Benefits of Gaining a Quality Management Certification

Gaining a quality management certification will undoubtedly make you a much more valuable professional. Considering that organizations increasingly face slim profits and rising competition, they need professionals who can increase their efficiency and bottom-line.

Some of the specific benefits of gaining quality management certification include:

  • Having a quality management certification on your profile is proof of your passion and dedication to improving your business understanding and analytical abilities.
  • Such certification will help you stand out from the competition in recruitment processes.
  • Considering the value of this certification, you’ll get better occupation chances and the potential of earning a higher salary.
  • The certification equips you with different approaches to increase revenue and reduce costs for your organization.
  • With the certification, you’ll know how to enhance staff involvement and rationalize processes.
  • Getting the necessary skills to apply in a leadership role is another benefit of the certification.

Best Certifications in Quality Management

Six Sigma certification is the go-to option for many professionals seeking quality management certification.

Six Sigma is a quality management approach in minimizing or eliminating defects or errors in business services or products. Initially developed for manufacturing processes, it’s now applicable across multiple industries including retail, electronics, and pharmaceuticals.

Such bodies as the International Association for Six Sigma Certification (IASSC) and the American Society of Quality (ASQ) offer Six Sigma certification. They provide similar certification levels, featuring:

  • Yellow Belt: Project team members supporting project improvements.
  • Green Belt: Professionals who support project improvements, help with statistical analysis, and lead projects (part-time).
  • Black Belt: Personnel leading projects (full time), as well as training, coaching, and/ or supervising project members.
  • Master Black Belt: Qualified personnel developing project strategy and metrics, serving as the go-to Six Sigma person, as well as training and coaching Black Belts and Green Belts.

Note that Six Sigma certifications don’t operate in a ladder format. For instance, a yellow Belt isn’t a prerequisite for a Green Belt.

The IASSC certification focuses on Lean Six Sigma: combines lean manufacturing principles and processes with a Six Sigma structure.

The three reputable IASSC certifications are:

  1. IASSC Certified Black Belt™ (ICBB™)

An ICBB professional is well versed in Lean Six Sigma Methodology. The person can lead complex improvement projects in a full-time capacity.

The certification signifies a high level of competence in subject matters in the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control (DMAIC) phases defined by the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Body of Knowledge™. That means a certified professional has an advanced level of proficiency in implementing, performing, interpreting, and applying lean Six Sigma.

To acquire the certification, you’ll go through the IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Exam™. It’s a 150 question, closed book, and proctored exam. You’ll get a 4 hour allotted time for this exam. It contains about 30 true/false and multiple-choice questions from every significant section of the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Black Belt knowledge base.

  1. IASSC Certified Green Belt™ (ICGB™)

An ICGB certified professional is well versed in Lean Six Sigma Methodology from the core to advanced elements. Such a professional leads improvement projects (part-time), serving as a team member within more complex improvement projects run by Certified Black Belts.

The Green Belt has a deep understanding of the Lean Six Sigma Method.

An exam is necessary to achieve this certification, which is a 100-question, closed book, proctored IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Exam™. Within the exam, you’ll get about 20 true/false and multi-choice questions from every major section within the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Body of Knowledge.

  1. IASSC Certified Yellow Belt™ (ICYB™)

The ICYB professional is well versed in foundational elements of Lean Six Sigma Methodology.

This professional can lead limited improvement projects (part-time) while serving as a team member within more complex improvement projects led by Black Belts or Green Belts.

To get the certification, you’ll go through the IASSC Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Exam™. It’s a 60 question, closed book, proctored exam that has a 2-hour allotted time. Within the exam, you’ll get true/false and multiple-choice questions out of every section within the IASSC Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt knowledge base.

On the other hand, the American Society for Quality (ASQ) offers a total of 18 certifications.

The certifications include:

  1. ASQ Yellow Belt
  2. ASQ Green Belt
  3. ASQ Black Belt
  4. ASQ Master Black Belt

Besides that, there are 14 other job-role-specific certifications like Biomedical Auditor and Calibration Technician.

Conclusion

With such quality management certification, you’ll have the necessary skills to implement quality applications and projects. This involves using such tools as Minitab in effective statistical analysis.

To pass the exam and get your certification, you’ll certainly need extensive training. This is possible through a well-structured in-depth course that’s not only aligned to the relevant exam but also uses comprehensive case studies and real-life examples. That’s available in Simplilearn’s Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training.

Deciding on retirement is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. You’re about to enter a new stage of life with new freedoms and needs. It’s important to choose the right city in which to spend your retirement.

Remember that it’s not always about the cost. Whether you have ample retirement savings or are living on social security, you can’t focus on price alone.

“Qualitative factors such as safety and the composition of the population (i.e., amount of residents who are retired) are very important, too,” Andrew DePietro, a head researcher at GOBankingRates.com told CNBC after performing a survey of what retired residents look for in desirable cities.

The survey also indicated that residents want the following:

  • Safe neighborhoods
  • A high percentage of seniors living in the area
  • High livability scores
  • Cost of living for seniors

These were the top four priorities, and other surveys largely agree with these categories. With this in mind, here are some of the top cities for American retirees to call home.

Scottsdale, AZ

According to Niche.com, Scottsdale, AZ if the top place to retire in the United States. This northeastern suburb of Phoenix offers dozens of amenities and perks for retirees, including bars, restaurants, golf courses, parks, coffee shops, and lovely accommodations. It’s a great family-friendly place for those hoping to entertain grandchildren throughout the year.

Scottsdale real estate tends to be pricey, but it’s one of the best cities in the state for comfortable living. Homes tend to be equipped with all the best features, and there are thousands of condos for sale as well. A Scottsdale condo is the perfect place for a retiree seeking a smaller space without sacrificing amenities.

Fort Myers, FL

Florida is easily one of the most popular destinations for retirees, but not all cities are conducive to senior living. Some are exorbitantly priced, overcrowded with young partiers, and overhyped.

Fort Myers, on the other hand, makes a great place to retire. Not only are home prices fabulous, but the weather is moderate all year. You’ll have your fill of beaches to visit and affordable shopping centers to frequent with more just an hour’s drive from the city.

Virginia Beach, Virginia

Here’s another excellent destination for seniors seeking a paradisaical home. Home prices are a little higher than the national average, but considered manageable for those with a decent retirement savings. Plus, there’s a high population of retirees.

Virginia Beach is part of 38 miles of luscious beaches. The shores are beautiful with quiet beaches to explore, quaint shopping districts, outdoor recreation opportunities, and quiet night life. Its perfect for those aiming to spend their final years relaxing in nature, away from the hustle of the city.

Lancaster, PA

It may come as a surprise to learn that U.S. News recently rated Lancaster, PA as the best place to retire in the United States. Lancaster is a beautiful area, but certain parts of the city can be sketchy, and schools have not always been highly rated.

However, drastic improvements have been made to this scene, including a decrease in housing prices. The median home price for retirees is just under $200,000, making it a highly affordable destination.

Besides that, the overall happiness index of the city’s residents has risen significantly in the last decade, largely thanks to the easily accessible amenities, excellent healthcare, and recreational opportunities. The city is surrounded by Amish farmland and includes dozens of historic sites worth visiting.

Metairie, LA

Retirees seeking an urban location without the rush hour traffic and dog-eat-dog pace will enjoy Metairie, LA, a quaint suburb of New Orleans. You’ll have your choice of bars, restaurants, coffee shops, parks, golf courses, and more without having to enter the big city.

Metairie is a very diverse area of the country, and it’s perfect for those who enjoy nightlife. Although many families make their home here, it’s more attractive to young professionals and retirees looking to enjoy the city without kids in tow.

The list of great places to retire in the U.S. could go on and on, but these are some of the top choices that you may not have considered. Remember, it’s not all about the cost—you’ve worked hard your whole life, and now it’s time to enjoy life to its fullest.
