Drones Vs Right To Privacy.

Drones are still new in India and not very often seen. Here is an interesting story that will tell you about the situation in brief. A friend is actually in the business of manufacturing them and I have had long chats on all the amazing uses drones are now being put to and am a great advocate for the increasing use of them. I actually would like to experience what Amazon has been threatening us with for some time – deliver ordered goods via drones!

Shackman on the other hand raises an important issue of privacy. In his typical style he has decided that both are antagonistic to each other whereas, I suggest that they are not but, can become if you allow them to. I accept that our privacy is very important and just to make it a very legal thing, our Supreme Court has come into the act with a ruling favouring our right to privacy as a fundamental right after doubts were raised when our primary identity method was sought to be linked to just about everything.

I personally do not have any problems with my privacy as I have enough and am willing to share my personal details with authorities who want it for various reasons. I can however understand why some others would not like to, as the possible damage to life and property could be much higher than my insignificant ones.

I would not however like a drone hovering over my garden when I am sitting there admiring the passing parade on the road adjacent.  Apart from being an annoying intrusion, it may just chase away some nice specimens parading outside.

I think that the contents of the link that I have shared in the first paragraph should take care of invasion of our privacy here and would really like to learn about how it is in the other parts of the world.

Shackman has suggested this week’s topic. I hope that he is back blgging so that I can access his take on the subject. You can see what the other writers of the LBC have to say in their respective blogs. ¬†Maria, Pravin, Ashok and Shackman.
