Example of Indian security systems.

Indian airport

Indian airports are not your stereotypical airports

Indian airports. Interesting. Enough said. They are so completely unlike American airports.

There was pretty much no food except for a single Indian snack bar. There were no corridors to roam around in. Unlike the consumer-mania at so many other airports, this place was literally just for travel.

Security was a tad on the light side too. There was what resembled metal detectors, but in fact, they were just made out of wood and basically for show. However, each person was individually frisked. Needless to say, the long lines move slow. Everyone here seems to run on their own individual internal clocks.
