    Smuggling gold from Dubai is not a profitable propositioln now compared to its price here...In this case his profit margin would have been less than Rs.2.00 lakhs plus risk. Now he lost every thing plus got jail tern.People dont understand.

    I could not understand why people try to smuggle gold and put themselves in risk. Are not they happy with whatever they earn in Gulf. If you do bad you will definately get bad. Why dont you be sincere and be happy with whatever God has given you. Too much love for money will put you in trouble.
