On tridandams and kirpans

In today’s newspaper –

Indian ‘grounds’ Chinna Jeeyar Swami

Interesting, given that kirpans (upto 6 inch blade, with 3 inch handle, according to BCAS) are allowed aboard. And, correct me if I’m wrong, the tridandam is made of wood!

I understand it’s hazardous to carry any sharp objects or objects that could be mis-used on an aircraft, but why, pray, is there a different rule for different objects?

Very interesting, indeed.

  1. Nope, not important. Just interesting. End of the day, it’s the Captain’s call on what can be taken aboard and what cannot be, so it doesn’t really matter!
