Hello MYLOTTERS, Its been very irritating for me as anywhere i go i have to stand in long queue to get frisked by official. As due to independence day threats are received from the terrorists so security here in Delhi is doubled and everywhere paramilitary force is seen to check people.Its good for us that government is thinking about us.But then whenever it comes to stand in queue to get frisked its irritating for me.What are your feeling????

Hi sjvg, did you get frisked? That's awful and very very annoying. We're you able to comeback to the line where you were originally in or did you have to go to the back of the line again? The world is being constantly threatened by civil distress which is why almost all countries have been strict in public places where terrorism attacks may occur.

Hello haopee, Not me all people in the queue were frisked due to security reasons and its not that i was frisked once its a daily routine where ever we go if we go to the temple there also we have to undergo the procee this is annoying as you have come to the temple and you need to stand for lot of time in line to get checked up first but then it has become essential due to various security threats in INDIA we get time to time.

Hi again sjvg. This is unfortunate, and it actually occurs in most Asian countries. But the good thing about people, is they tend to adapt to new changes in procedures. Don't worry, we are a highly malleable species, and eventually, staying in line and frisking incidences shall start to not bother that much anymore.

hello sjvg, I understand about it, esp when we in a rush. Usually this happens at train stations here in out country, when military's announced "red alert". Gosh, I hate it when after a graveyard shift I have to stand in a long queue for check up. I wish I can sleep while standing then have a good day jaiho®

I have no problem with that as long as the officials are not delaying the protocols and are trying their best effort to efficiently hasten the procedures. It is a security measure and I will submit to it anytime. It is better than finishing the line with all the worries that maybe one individual in there will wreak havoc in the place. Just be patient and obedient with the protocols. It is done for everybody's good.

Hello AG, Yes dear it is done for everyone's good but most of the time they don't do it fastly and keep us standing and waiting for our turn to come which is annoying as standing without work is always irritating for anyone.

Hello isloooboy, Yes 9/11 attack has changed the lives in almost every country as now they give more emphasis on the safety as they now believe the terrorist are like common people and by frisking they can avoid a big mishappening and thats true sometime people get caught by this. There is no problem for being frisked but the problem is with the time they keep us standing and waiting for our turn to come which is real cause of irritation.

Hi sjvg Qs - definitely in India there is no way you can avoid them. Everywhere there are Qs and the worst is that there are 75% chances that you are going to be frisked especially the ones that are for counters that lead to Govt. Officials I think our goverment should make Internet as a fundamental right and we all should be on the Internet for most of the things. That should avoid many queues and the unavoidable ones... they will always come up wherever there are traffic cops or the paramilitary ones for the so called "security checke"

Hello thesids, Oh yes feasibility of automation is to be checked everywhere and government should implement it where ever possible to reduce rushes at the government office counters.I think government also understand it that they will have to spend a lot to give trainings to these government employees thats why they don't check it.

Hello sjvg, I just don't understand as to why you guys can be so afraid of terrorist bombing on the independence day, it's the terrorist who should be afraid because the day of independence is the day that they shouldn't mess up with the indian people because i know you can make a stand. well, tight security is better than lapse then explosion. be careful out there

Hello LK, We guys are afraid of the volence on the festive occassions which may cost lives of many as people do gather at all public places on these ocassions.There have been instances that there were bombings here in INDIA on some big days.Terrorist choose it becuase they know they will take several lives on these days than normal days. Thats right tight security is always better than to have some accidents/attacks.

Hi sjvg Yes I had to stand in a long line when the airports initially had the whole scanner and pat down thing. I hated it took so long and it was not a good feeling to be treated like some kind of criminal. Although I do understand they are doing it for our safety, but the sad part is that I feel they are targeting innocent people. The humiliation of them pulling my pants down was not fun. I say this as to date they have yet to really find anything really "alarming" or "harmful" per se on anyone that I am aware of.

Hello HWG, Yes it become annoying for innocent people because of few anti social people.Really it looks bad when you wait for your turn in lond queue for nothing but thats required for the sake of our saftey in country like ours where these bomb blasts wre so frequent. @ Suny rightly said this is necessary for the sake of our safety but due to 5% of people 95% innocent people get suffered.Thats very irritating when you stand in the line for your turn in hot sweating all over as like you have been punished.
