In times of luggage

Ever since our city became the target of various kinds of attacks, the general reaction of most commuters is to refrain from meddling with any unattended piece of luggage. So bags perched on overhead racks in trains are safe from prying hands. But when trains are so packed that people themselves have no space to stand, squeezing a bag onto a crowded rack becomes a Herculean feat. Never deterred, enterprising Mumbaikars  have found a way around this dilemma, too. The solution is simple: carry a hook as religiously as one carries one’s season railway pass.
