Gambling is betting or wagering money or anything at the expense of a possible future outcome to win. Gambling in India traces back to the time of The Mahabharata, almost 4000 years ago; it is described as a form of playing dice or “chausar” as it was called back then.

The intervention of children and young people certainly also impact the schemes of guidelines and governance that border them. They are thus as much theme to these systems as they can be energetic and shapers of them, in many cases organised with or in equivalent to the adults adjacent them. Contempt this heading of children as being both marks and shapers of governance, though, with some exceptions, the methodical study of the governance of children and youth have established little consideration within childhood studies as well as to the examination of how child rights are assumed to form in national and multinational politics, law and society.
