Sari Spells Terror for US security - (A) Thithi Devo Bhava?
I wish something like this should have happened when the US's first lady was here. Only sari's allowed in Indian airports and the US first lady should have been frisked by the AOI. Indian Envoy Meera Shankar was recently patted down at the US airport In spite she proving her diplomatic status with the officials.Reason, She was wearing a Sari. Indians treat guests with the mantra "Athithi Devo Bhava" (we know how the Obama's and Sarkozy's were treated), again and again Indians are not treated like that in many countries. Some raise objections for Burqa's, Some for Turbans, Some for Sari's and we as always want to strengthen the diplomatic relationships with many countries and hope to bring it up during the next diplomatic meetings. We are just hoping and Hoping and Hoping for someone to come to india and we then tell them "Please Take care of this the Next time around". All diplomats are not politicians, so please don't treat them as terrorists!!!
