Wow! That sign certainly makes you think.

As if Indians walk around with their passports! Not hard to see who is being monitored... blach... I doubt I'd walk in here.

Lesley said...

Take nothing for granted, eh?!

Postcardy said...

That doesn't seem very safe to me.

Woody said...

Seems a bit harsh! I'm thinking I'll skip this place.

glad I live here

Pat said...

Talk about Big Brother watching.......I wonder if they monitor the Internet, too!

Luna Miranda said...

wow, an ID to use the internet? maybe this is for underage users.

It was for all people. Passport from India and Passport from somewhere else. First it was unbelievable for me (after 7 weeks in other areas of India), then I had to go back and bring my passport (original). No use of internet without this. No sites were blogged, like YouTube in Turkey (!), Iran and China.
And this order wasfor every internet cafe in Delhi. Not in other towns.
Nonetheless we had a great time in India. I posted something about yesterday.

Goodness...that's a strict sign! I would be of two minds about this...one understands the need for security, but this is definitely off-putting to visitors. We certainly don't like to be without our internet for long, do we...LOL?

Wow, what an interesting sign. I can understand their concern, but this may be taking things a bit too far?
