If I Won a Lottery Prize
I want to earn money through hard work when I grow up. However, I know how I would use the money if I won a lottery prize, say, of seventy-five lakh rupees.
First, I would give my friends and relatives a tea party. The menu would consist of the choicest sweets. Second, I would buy the best of clothes for my parents, brothers, sisters and myself. Third, I would buy a scooter, for it takes me a lot of time to travel on a cycle. Fourth, I would set up a small library of my own. This would consist of the most interesting books for children. The boys and girls of my locality would be free to borrow these books and read them. All this would cost me about five lakh rupees.
I would deposit five lakh rupees in a post office under some useful saving scheme. This would yield me the necessary funds for my higher education. Sixth, I would give the remaining sixty-five lakh rupees to my parents so that they may build a house. At present, they do not have enough money to build one. We have been living in rented houses all our lives. Some landlords have been very good while others have been painfully bad. So we feel that there is nothing like having one’s own house.
Well, all these plans depend upon my winning a lottery prize!
