Game of Chance
Whenever i go to kerala, i buy lotteries daily, its kind a time pass thinking about what you will do if you win money, I guess this is what makes a person a lottery addict, which you can find in great numbers there, generally laborers spend half of their earning on drinking and lottery.
Lotteries are legal in some 13 states in India, and most of these lotteries are issued by state governments themselves and these provide good earnings to the state.Not to forget the direct and indirect employment that it provides. Most people think of lotteries as social evil, on the lines of gambling. Thou lotteries are legal in some parts of the country, gambling is totally illegal except for goa and sikkim. In Goa gambling is basically targeted towards foreign tourists, sikkim has only one casino because of that most of the Indian gamblers go to Nepal. Even after serious restrictions indian gambling market is estimated at around 60 billion (includes illegal gambling). Gamblers going to nepal results in loss of revenue for the state.
If some of the states can allow lotteries why cant they allow gambling aswell. Whats wrong with gambling its just a game that involves money, tell me which game in the world does not involve money. Money is the only reason that games exist in this world. I am of the opinion that gambling, lotteries and betting should be legalised nationwide. Currently lot of betting happens but they are underground, if betting is legalised, the state can earn so much money and use them for some constructive purpose. Now horse betting is legal, ask me why? because of amirs what else. There is always provision for amirs, whats the difference between betting on a horse race and a cricket match. So it doesnt make any sense. Also lottery is as addictive as gambling, and the online lottery thing which is legal is nothing less than a slot machine.
I believe there is no such thing as a game of talent, all games are game of chance, because talent itself is by chance, nobody earns talent, talent is given by nature which is by chance.
Gambling provides a hope for the lesser talented to be rich, and the state has no right to limit this rightful chance. Now this guy had been unlucky while nature has been doling out talents, but he needs to get another chance, he needs a hand yet again at the game of chance, his only hope to live a better life, his only hope to get out of mediocrity.
Now there are people who consider it as a social evil, which actually means that its harmful for a society if its members indulge in gambling. But then why is alcohol and lottery legal, lot of people live miserable life because of that, why dont u fuckers ban that too.
The main thing people fail to understand is that. if you legalise gambling its not that every one will start gambling, only a few will do. There are lot of places where gambling is legal, so does that make all people living in those region miserable. My opinion is that gambling is just like any other business. It brings prosperity to the region where ever it operators. See vegas for example, it was a banjar desert, and see what its now. See what the chinese are doing with macau, they are now trying to give vegas a run for its money. And what we fuckers are doing?. Not a fucking thing, nobody is giving it a thought either, nobody is debating over it.
For me gambling represents freedom. If the govt. is too worried about garibs, then they can start with internet gambling with access to credit card holders only, that way they could screen out some people (thou i wont like that). It can be done slowly, or allow it in all the tourist places, or build a gambling SEZ. There are lot of ways to do it. But no fucker is willing to take a lead.
What a fucking non-sense. Is this freedom, every fucking thing is banned here. Ban love, nobody suffers more than people in love.
