During travelling how much careful we are it s good to us . As many people travel with the intention to rob others. Even the police make us aware about these things but never take it seriously and later seek their help.

In spite being educated we get fooled . Some times talking to some persons we get hypnotized. We have to be very careful when we travelling some people purposely offer us the eatables.
