All forms of gambling should be abolished

All forms of gambling should be abolished. Discuss.

Gambling is playing for some stake. Gambling may be for fun or for gain but very often it is the later. Gambling started from very ancient times and it has been a pastime of the rich as well as the poor. In modern time gambling has extended to many fields. For instance, speculation on a football game is nothing but gambling. Gambling at horse races is very common and millions of money change hands in a day’s race and for every one gain there may be thousands of losers. Gambling maniac has spoiled many a family and even kingdoms have been lost. Since gambling has been despised, no sensible man would indulge in it.

However, people do it because a quick profit is expected. So when a man plays cards by way of gambling, he thinks he can make some quick and easy money. In certain instances thousands of dollars change hands. Funfairs are gambling places. People come to make some quick money. Horse racing is a licensed gambling. Thousands of people go to the races and bet their money on this horse or the other. There are race addicts, who come and bet. From ancient time the dice has been a form of gambling. There is also gambling at established markets. A cotton market is an example.

The attendant evils of gambling are many. A man loses all his money to others. He becomes a debtor and is ruined. The gambling maniac can lead to other evils like thefts, fraud and even, in some cases, murder. The family of a habitual gambler cannot be happy because they cannot say what would happen if the maniac loses all his money. A gambler is not at all dependable and hence society always shuns him.
