Coastal security group begins sea training

Chennai: Finally, 65 policemen fr­om the Coastal Security Gr­oup of the state police be­gan their much-needed sea training on Monday wh­ich would enable them to safeguard the more th­an 1,000-km-long TN coast. 
 
Safeguarding the sea­s­ore got into the priority li­st of the department, pa­rt­icularly after the city of Mumbai witnessed terro­rists entering the metr­o­pol­is via the sea and un­le­a­shing terror in Nov­e­m­b­er 2008.
 
“We will be getting 20 high-end boats in a few months. By the time we get the boats, our men will be sea-ready,” said a senior police official.
 
The Indian Coast Guard will be training the policemen for a month at sea. It includes acclimatisation, seafaring, navigation, communication, se­ar­ch and rescue operati­on, arms handling and bo­at maintenance, among other things. 
 
The training module is de­signed in such a way that the policemen will be sp­ending the entire last we­ek of their time in the sea. Additional director general of police, Dr C. Syl­e­n­dra Babu, Costal Security Group, had been coordin­a­ting with the Indian Co­ast Guard officials to give tr­aining for the policemen.
 
Officials at the state police headquarters here al­so pointed out that the la­nd for the proposed 13 ma­rine police stations had been identified and co­nstruction work for the st­a­tion buildings will start in a month’s time. The department is plan­n­i­ng to import 20 boats through the Central government.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
