Kerala lotteries are addicting in nature and the hope and dream of Keralites to become rich is never ending. They are offering a return of up to 20000 times the investment. In the hope of getting this 20000 times the investment, not many care to lose 50 Rs or less. Even though one 50 Rs ticket won’t affect anyone’s life, the continuation of this habit would end up in unexpected problems. High returns induce gambling tendency among the poor and bankrupt large sections of low-income populations.
“Two persons (the one who ran the lottery and the one who won the cow, as prize) gained without doing any work, and gained at the expense of the ninety-nine who lost their money. Thus, those who say that lotteries are advantageous to the people are simply practising deceit on the people.” Lenin, The Communist
But in reality banning lottery is like banning alcohol. Trading will happen underground with the help of police officers and corrupted politicians as people are ready to buy them at any cost to check their luck.
