Cards On The Ground

playing cards yentha

The background shows the new Coastal Police Station at Vizhinjam. Home Minister Kodiyeri Balakrishnan, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Mullappally Ramachandran, Law Minister M Vijayakumar, DGP Jacob Punoose, IG Hemachandran IPS, MR Ajith Kumar IPS and a whole lot of other high ranking officials are present at the site. A crowd of nearly 200 policemen are on duty around the location. Seen in the picture are official vehicles of these officers. They have name plates and blue flash lights on top. In fact there are policemen inside these vehicles.

And what you see in the foreground, are a group of people, playing cards with money at stake, and apparently unaffected by what is happening around.

Is there a rule - playing cards in public places is punishable?

I think gambling in public space is punishable. One can only do it only in clubs and closed space. If there is no money or betting involved, it is OK to play cards in public. One among the million confusing rules in India :)
