I have hear alot of stories about pick pocketing.Recently my son had a bad experience while travelling by train he was on the upper berth.When he had to collect his luggage he came down from the berth and bent to take his footwear,he just put the phone on the seat and in a jiffy it was missing.

Yes, I have been pickpocketed (but technically it wasn't my pocket that was picked but my bag)3 years back on a bus in Bangalore. I was on a bus with my then 4 year old son and my husband. A woman came and sat beside me. She had a very young child (less than a year old) and she had a shawl which she spread on her lap before she kept the child on it. A part of the shawl covered a part of my bag which I had on my lap. I didn't bother too much about it but when I got off the bus...the bag had been slit at two places and my purse which was at the other end of the bag was stolen. The surprising part is that the woman had to put her hand all away across the bag to get at the purse and it was all done while the bag was on my lap and I didn't even know!

I've never been pick pocketed even though I live in a city where every year during tourist season there is so many warnings about it. I have also never been pick pocketed any where I've travelled to, not even London which is notorious for it. Maybe it's because I'm always careful about where I keep my money and never leave a coat or bag unattended.
