Over-Security consciousness hurts sometimes

Yesterday I was at the PVR Bangalore. I noticed a couple of foreigners arguing with the security at the entrance of the Audi. The guard says they do not allow laptops inside and the couple say its their official laptop and they cannot leave it with the security. They argued with everyone in the hierarchy and finally they left the theater cursing my country and their time. They said they were waiting in the mall for more than two hours just to watch the movie, finally which they couldn’t.

So when it comes to security, where are we heading to? Things meant to keep us happy and safe are troubling us? A theater which charges relatively double to any other ordinary theater in town doesn't provide enough infrastructure where such things can be handled.

Security is something which when dealt by uneducated and unsophisticated people will be the same.
