The Day I Can Never Forget
Days are different. Some bring good luck and others herald bad luck. One day in my life rises above the rest. It was a day of good luck for our family. The evening had descended and we had not eaten anything that day. My father, the only earning member of the family, had been confined to bed for the last two months. My mother had sold out everything to save my father. I started cursing God and my mother started crying. My father looked weak and desperate. At that critical moment, someone knocked at the door. As I opened it, a man smiled and said “Congratulations”. He pushed me aside and went in. He approached my parents and said, “Congratulations! Your son has won a lottery prize of one lakh!” It was then I realized that I had bought a lottery ticket the previous week only. The period of two months of hard days and poverty had ended. The era of prosperity lay ahead. Strange are the ways of God! A moment of that day changed the whole course of my life. Who can forget such a day?
