Skip to comments.The mystery of the Indian intruder at the Opening Ceremony (Olympic security not so secure)

The Indian delegation marched into the Opening Ceremony just like the other 203 countries at the Summer Olympics. A flag bearer led the procession and was accompanied by a female sign holder and a young child ambassador. Behind them, the nation's athletes marched; India's team wore yellow saris and turbans. Someone else was there too, an unexpected intruder in the procession. She wasn't part of the lead group and wasn't an athlete. She was dressed in a red sweater and teal pants and was waving and cheering like she was supposed to be there. She wasn't.
Who was she? And why was she there? The identity of the Indian Intruder became a major mystery in the country. "Who's That Girl?" blared the headline on the front page of The Hindustan Times.

Looks more like a suicide blubber, butt you never know.
It’s Waldo. Nothing to worry about.

I got a bad feeling about this. It shouldn't have been possible - literally. It shouldn't have been possible for someone to have made it that far, with no badges, not only improperly dressed but color designed to stand out from the yellow the Indian athletes were wearing. And even if she started, she should have been immediately spotted by the team and security, and arrested right there. Not "should have" as in it would have been a good idea, but "should have" as in there would be zero possibility of avoiding getting tackled by ten cops and having her smug grin bashed in before she was smothered in anti-explosive wrap and dragged away.
I don't buy it. It stinks.
You mean the Perkawe tribe. Always lost, asking for direction. ‘Excuse me, can you help? We’re the Perkawe...’
She can’t be Hekawi- they’re afraid of the dark.
