DRONES CAN SERVE MANY PURPOSES

India is the biggest importer of unmanned aerial vehicles or drones, according to a recent report at IndiaSpend.com. These drones, imported almost entirely from Israel, are used for reconnaissance, surveillance, and intelligence gathering, activities that are essential for the military as well as parents of prospective brides.

Father of prospective bride: “Do you have the drone report?”

Private investigator: “Yes, I do. Our drone followed the prospective groom around for five days.”

Father: “And what did you find?”

Investigator: “He’s lying about his age.”

Father: “How do you know?”

Investigator: “He has a bald spot. You can see it from above. Just look at these aerial photos.”

Father: “What else did you find?”

Investigator: “He’s prone to violence, but believes in God.”

Father: “How do you know?”

Investigator: “He threw a stone at our drone and shouted, ‘For God’s sake, stop following me!’”
