Thank you Dorothy for the photo prompt.
Those with an itch to wager are making a beeline to off-shore casinos on the river Mandovi in Goa. The sun never sets and the stakes are sky-high in these glamorous, glittering floating vessels.
The only winner in a casino is the person who scores a hit and stops playing. However, it is a rare person who can overcome temptation and walk out while still ahead. Jai and Veera are among those rare ones. They waited for the sun to set and the revelers on the ship to return to their pleasures.
Jai and Veera purchased 10 million rupees worth of chips in hard-cash. They gambled for an hour and won about Rs 10,000 – cashed their chips and walked out.
Three more such visit to other casinos and Jai & Veera flew out of Goa with a perfectly legal banker’s cheque for 30 million rupees.
