The S is not for security
If you believe that much of the security we are subjected to is meaningless, then you are right, says IE:
Making a mockery of security, a 42-year-old woman posed as a senior scientist, flaunted a fake identity card and spent two nights at an Isro guest house in Bangalore. She also managed to enter the institution’s headquarters on New BEL Road but that’s when her game was up.
Security personnel at Antariksh Bhavan, Isro headquarters, detected Buela M Sam’s identity card to be fake. She was arrested on Sunday. Buela, who is from Kerala and currently lives in Ahmedabad, was remanded in judicial custody till October 6.
She’s a mother of two medical students and the wife of Alex Thomas, a high school teacher in Ahmedabad. As she was making contradictory statements, the police contacted Alex, who said his wife suffered from depression and would go missing from their house at regular intervals.
Security is usually alert when it is convinced of the need. If someone thinks that the ISRO guest house and headquarters need to be secured, then they should convince at least the security apparatus. Otherwise, like the guardians, we too remain a little sceptical of the need for security.
