I was patted down in an ennhecad manner when flying to Canada recently. It was before the whole thing became public news on internet, and I had no idea why I was searched so thoroughly. However, I did not think much about it, because the agents were so much more professional than their US counterparts and traveling in India and the Middle East, I am used to being searched this way. There it is done in lady's only zones, very professionally and quickly. One time, I was flying from Mumbai to Kochi in the south, and I was searched by a young female agent. I was wearing my mangalsutra necklace, which is a western Indian equivalent of a wedding ring. Since I was a newlywed, my mangalsutra was worn in a reversed fashion, so when the lady saw it, she understood and she gave me a big smile. So, we stood there, just two women, not officer and passenger, smiling at each other.Above all, D, I am so sorry to hear news of your father not feeling well. I hope that he is ok.
