My Kara is like my best friend, it has not left my wrist for more than 2 decades. It is my 3rd Kara (in this life time). Now that I think of it, I have know my Kara longer than most of my friends.
I wanted to give you all an update on how often I have removed my Kara at Airport Security since 2001, the answer is ONE (that is one to many times). I cannot recall when exactly I did it but it was in the last couple of years. As soon as I took off the Kara and put it in the x-ray machine and walked across the human machine (without a beep), I knew I had done something wrong.
I separated from a part of me to avoid secondary screening. Now, every time I go through security and the machine beeps, I get asked by TSA agent *fair question btw*:
“Can you take off that bangle?”
to that I always reply:
“No, I will not”
*I am so used it it by now, that when I don’t beep, I wonder if the machine is broken*
I must have flown at least 100+ times since 9/11 and I am happy to report that I have not been asked to remove my Turban, even once.
So, I pledge to myself that going forward, I will not separate my Kara from my wrist. NOT for Security nor for convenience,
