Feeling Secure on I-day
I guess this year’s Independence Day was the day that I was completely paranoid about security.
(Diplomatic way of saying I was “scared-shit” – after Mumbai bombs, the London nightmare and all those warnings from US to India!)
But hey, does it make sense for someone to attack when the opponent expects it? I can’t think from a terrorist’s shoe ;-)
I spent the entire day watching TV and never ventured out. Our PM’s speech (behind the bullet-proof glass!) was inspirational.
I came to know from my friends that the city was full of policemen and MG Road had a big flag march.
Did you go out into the city? What was your experience?
Was there any harassment (read searching cars & baggage) by the police?
