Niraj Dalal of 3A Capital foresees good tidings in store for Delta, the country’s only listed casino play

Soumik Kar

Diwali is finally behind us and life is slowly getting back to normal. But today, no Diwali party is complete without card games and now, increasingly, ‘casino’ parties. Gambling has existed in India for far longer than modern history accounts. It is even written about in the Ramayana, which some believe dates back to 7300 BC. In the Mahabharata, the concept of gambling and its terrible consequences are well known.The point that I am trying to make is that gambling in India is as old as the hills and will continue to thrive in one form or the other, whether legally or illegally.
