No guns, knives, bombs etc.

I am not kidding about this. I noticed this as I was waiting in the line for Security Check at the Chennai airport last night. Large flat panel monitors above the x-ray machines listed items that were unacceptable in your carry-on baggage. Here is a sampler:

  • Brass Knuckles
  • Crowbars
  • Knives
  • Golf Clubs
  • Dynamite - other types of explosives are probably ok
  • Razors - pretty normal .... but read on
  • Gels including shaving creams - pretty normal ... but read on
  • Books (1 or 2) - more than that could be construed as a weapon!
Items that are permitted:

  • Shaving kit (without a razor and a shaving cream?)
