Yesterday, I Was discussing with my elder brother that gambling should be avoided in any form, pat came the reply that Investing in share market is also a sort of gambling. I couldn't disagree, earnings from speculative business is very similar to gambling.
I would request Fellow Devotees to throw some light on above mentioned question.
