    Why to carry so much cash while traveling alone or going to any temple. Giving open invitation to the thieves.

    Not all people come to temple or marriage ceremonies with or without invitation or love of God .Their main aim is to search weak victims who are not taking more care of their items.Be careful in future .Dont take too much money or Gold .God doesnt see your richness ,or gold.He sees only your honest prayers ,clean heart.Nothing else.Dont dress much with pompoes.
