    Pickpocket is a story taken from a collection of stories Half a Rupee Stories by Gulzar and offered here as an independent read It is from part seven which deals with death and how people face it This one is about a couple that waited long to have a child and are anxiously or eagerly expecting one now The man returns home one day to be informed by a neighbour that his wife has gone into labour and is in the hospital He is stressed enough that this is several days too soon and keeps returning to his home to change or collect his wallet and then is unable to find a vehicle uickly to take him; when it is time to pay he realises his wallet has been picked by a pickpocket when he was paying attention to getting to the hospital than to being safe from them in crowds of Mumbai At the hospital after a time of anxiety he is faced by the doctor after the operation his wife needed due to complications to be informed that the baby was still born and at this he is unrepentant in addressing his big guy above and calling him the biggest pickpocket of all not caring about blasphemy this timeSaturday April 5 2014
