IF I WERE A MILLIONAIRE
It has been very rightly said that “If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” But it is wonderful to have wishes. Even though they may not come true, there is no harm in dreaming.
Although I am not a poor man, but I would like to have so much money, that I could do something for those who are less fortunate than me. I do not see any harm in having every luxury for myself, if in turn I can do something worthwhile for the poor. It has been my dream to see each child well nourished. When I see children on streets hungry, I feel sad. Although their parents try their best, they cannot provide them with food, clothing and shelter. Then they turn to begging.
It I was a millionaire I would do my best to provide permanent shelter, food and clothing to the poor. I would open schools for them where they can study. I would help them to be so independent that they can find fruitful employment for themselves.
I would also build hospitals so as to provide them with good medical facilities. India has progressed a lot and we do have good medical facilities but poor people cannot afford them. If a poor child falls sick, there is every possibility that he might die due to lack of medicines and doctors. I would like to build a hospital with modern facilities where people will get medical assistance free of cost.
I would donate money to social service organizations like destitute homes, orphanages, homes for the aged and reformatories.
Unfortunately when one becomes extremely rich, one tends to forget the plight of those who are less fortunate My motto would be, “live and let live.” In fact I would do all that I can for my parents too so that they may not have to break their backs working for us. I would like to enjoy the fruits of money but I would always remain sensitive and sympathetic to the agony of those who are less fortunate.
