Termites feast on Bank Deposit Vault...

From a conventional belief in India (may be elsewhere too), the bank lockers (or vaults if you wish to call them) are the safest possible locations to keep your valuables.

Given the crime rate here and there, the bank lockers have long since been the preferred choice of people to put up savings, especially the jewellary and precious metal collections.

I can very well imagine the plight of Mr Dwarika Prasad, as to how would be feel after losing all of his savings thanks to the negligence of bank employees. And the better part is, they have enough courage to say that they are not responsible ?

Well, if not them, who is responsible for the loss that Mr Prasad has suffered ? I wonder if the corporations are going to improve and own up to their responsibilities, especially when the consequences are as devastating as in this case.

Though, I feel one awkward thing in the story, the fact that he chose to put currency notes inside the bank locker. He must had a very good reason to put currency notes in the locker, given that he's going to lose on value after each passing day.

Hard luck Mr Dwarika Prasad. :(

Termites feast on trader's money:
"'I'm shattered. I do not know what to do as I had kept the money for my old age,' Mr Prasad said."
