Aam Aadmi

Proud nations take pride in their citizens. In most international airports, deplaning nationals are directed to the first bank of immigration counters.

At Delhi's new Terminal 3, first priority goes to those passengers, presumably aged or physically challenged, requiring 'Special Handling'. Next up, First and Business Class Passengers -  fair enough, top dollar should get its recompense. Then, Foreign Nationals, followed by PIOs/OCIs (Persons of Indian Origin/Overseas Citizens of India).

 The 'aam aadmi', or Mango Man, comes last.

  1. I noticed this too, and commented on my return from Oslo in August. You'd imagine one of the first things a citizen would be greeted with is "welcome home, this way please so you can meet your families quickly."
