I would like to take about two things that are very important to me. One is a magazine called Sea and Coast and the other is a very special man who I call my friend called Amit Kumar, an eminent professional from the Mariner Fraternity and the Editor of Sea and Coast. Amit was born in India and started Sea and Coast especially for the Maritime Industry – or anyone else who is interested – like me!
It covers navel, cruise, coastal, ferry and sail sectors, and is the official On Line Partner of the Indian Navy’s Think Tank National Maritime Foundation.
It was a humble endeavour to pay gratitude to shipping and maritime community worldwide. Todays seafarer must be informed and entertained in an increasingly complex and commercial shipping environment.
It’s available online and in print and there’s a mobile app for Android phones and is available every month.
At the moment Twitter won’t give Amit the Blue Tick which he so deserves, which is really nasty of them.
In 2021 it signed a Memorandum of Understanding with SAMDES (Society for Aerospace Maritime and Defence Studies) a Non Profit think thank of India.
Sea and Coast if you are interested in Maritime news is one of the most interesting magazine you can read.
Just a small except, which I’m sure Amit won’t mine me telling you is
A little know fact about Amit is that he is also Chairman of a Mother Teresa Charitable Foundation in India so must have our Greatest Respect for that as well.
So I’m going to be talking Sea and Coast and Amit on a regular basis on my blog? Why? Because he’s my friend and I like to talk about my friends as well as just me! I believe in loyalty and my Seaman have been at my heart and soul since I was a young girl and I still knit hats and gloves for them. And well – you see we can all talk about our friend, so here’s what no one knows about Amit, but they all think they can get out there on Social Media and say nasty things about him, but here’s what they don’t know the Amit Kumar that I know. The man behind Sea and Coast. The man that fought he’s way back from Covid, and believe me I thought we’d lost him, but he still found the energy to message me and say he was alright. The man that always sends me a message to ask if I’m alright. He’s sweet, he’s kind, he’s funny and more than that, this man that everyone seems to judge by his picture, will fight to his last breath to get better rights for Seamen.
I’ve very proud and lucky to call Amit Kumar my friend.
