Does dame luck smile more at dawn?I am familiar with the saying 'Early bird catches the worm'. But I have not come across a coinage 'early lottery ticket gets the prize'. But I feel there is some such belief in the luck-hunters.
In villages and towns, it was and is a sight that the tea shops are the first to open and cater to the needy. It can be understood. Especially during winters, it is a worthy sight to see people with headscarves, mufflers and sweaters crowding around the tea vendor and happily sipping the hot tea to ward of the residual sleep and cold. Other than the tea shops and the pan-bidi shops, most other shops open later only.
But now I see that in my place at least more than a dozen shops selling lottery tickets are open when the tea shops are just opening. Not just that, the lottery ticket seller goes to the tea drinkers and beckon them to buy. The pucca shops with lights and decorations are open and ready at dawn. And sure, there are buyers too. The demand-supply equilibrium.
Do you know any theory that buying a lottery ticket early morning brings a prize?
