manoj@indiacp.com Security is one of the most important issues in any setting, a home, school, hospital, malls, social gatherings, et al. But it is also one of the most overlooked issues at times. Maslow, a world famous psychologist known for his hierarchy of needs, brought to paper the thought which people generally fail to realize. 'The second most important need after food and shelter is the need for protection and security. That comes even before the need for love, social esteem and self-growth. Believe it or not; ask yourself and you'll know it's true.'

Though we hardly notice it, security finds a place in the country as a full-blown security industry which is growing steadily year after year. In fact, it may sometimes be even safe to say that there are more security guards than the number of policemen today.

This era is a witness to the most technologically advanced generations which the earth has ever borne. Generation X, the ones that saw light of the day in 1960s and 70s; Generation Y which was born in the 80s and the 90s; and finally the Generation Z that is right now enrolled in schools and colleges. The audio cassettes, calculators, floppy disks, walk-mans of the 60s and 70s gave way to Windows and Apple Macintosh, cell phones, Pentium processors and Internet in the 80s! All these have eventually given way to things like gaming consoles, e-book readers and DVD players, things which we cannot imagine our lives without.
