Lord Shani to Guard Bank With No Locks in Doorless Town

The first bank with no locks on its doors has opened in the small village of Shani Shinganapur in the Ahmednagar district of India. The village is presided over by the Hindu celestial being Shani, the Lord of Saturday, who is known for inflicting harm on thiefs and betrayors. Although there are no doors on the houses, there has not been a theft or robbery in the village in the recent past. Apparently, residents and pilgrimagers are fearful of envoking the wraith of a four-armed man riding a golden crow while wielding a septor and a flower. The deity may have been successful in protecting trinkets and clothing, but let's see if his influence holds up against the lure of cold hard cash.
