    Displaying gold while going for walks is an open invitation to chain snatchers; some foolish females will never understand the perils of wearing gold! Times are very bad due to high inflation, unemployment, and severe drought in 220 talukas, the chain snatching and burglaries will exponentially rise as time goes by due to the reasons mentioned above!
