New Delhi, India. October 22, 2016: Post the Uri attack, the unrest and tension between India and Pakistan have made the nation forget a hope for peace. BSF or the Border Security Force has upgraded the laser walls technology to strengthen the virtual laser walls, securing the border which is a breakthrough in the Border Defense System of the country!

Functioning with laser-beams and infrared rays; the high-end laser-walls between Pakistan and India can not only detect a breach in the system or a break-in and intrusion in the LOC, but can also differentiate between a human and an animal.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

The laser-walls are being installed by the India-based company CRON systems. The founder of CRON Tushar Chhabra was quoted as saying to DNA, “The surgical strike made the situation at the borders more tense and we were requested to upgrade all existing systems with the newer KVI-101S (technology) since the BSF believes that this time around the intrusion attempts will increase. The plan is to cover the entire frontier with the new laser walls by February-March next year.”

Minor upgrades of the intrusion detector systems were ongoing over the past months but the following the very recent surgical strikes, a new series of the laser-walls were installed on the 8 kilometres region of the border. The present series of the virtual walls are named KVI-101S and functions with the IR-optics. It works far better in the frontier lands than the previous versions which were not fully compatible under harsh weathers and marshy areas.

“The KVI-101S system requires very little human intervention, has smarter detection capabilities and the encryptions are hack-proof,” Chhabra stated to DNA.

Former BSF Inspector General Rakesh Sharma was the first one to adopt the laser-technology for virtual walls. “Human error can never be neglected and therefore BSF needs the latest technology to guard our borders because the counterpart will never stop attempting (to intrude). I am proud to know that these systems are being made in India,” he was reported as saying to DNA.

Home ministry officials have explained that the GPS coordinates at least about 200 kilometres inside Pakistan, would be used for a virtual border zone next and the area will be constantly monitored by thermal imaging HD cameras placed in balloons and UAVs.

CRON has confirmed and reported to DNA that about an ongoing project for an upcoming upgraded system named miCRON which is to enable encrypted communication for fencing of five-layer. Drones are also being developed and all these will be adding a smart layer of defence to the Indian borders soon.

As per Hindu myth, on “Devipaksha”, the Gods and the Goddesses began their preparations to celebrate “Mahamaya” or Goddess Durga, who was brought upon by the trinity- Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwara; to annihilate the fierce demon king named Mahishasura. The captivating story of the Goddess defeating the demon got popularized with the goddess being revered as “Durgatinashini” or the one who banishes all the evils and miseries of the world.

The program is inseparable from Mahalaya and has been going on for over six decades till date. The magic is induced by the popular Birendra Krishna Bhadra whose voice makes the recitation of the “Chandi Kavya” even more magnificent! He has been a legend and the dawn of Mahalaya turns insipid without the reverberating and enchanting voice of the legendary man.

Mahalaya will keep spreading the magic and setting the vigor of the greatest festival of the Bengalis- the Durga Puja, to worship the supreme Goddess, eternally.
