Our elders usually advise the young ones to forget the past, ignore the future and care for the present. But there is hardly any one who has no ambition for a higher status than the present one. The constant struggle for the higher position sticks to man till the last day of his life. This is true of every human being right from the man in the street to the topmost personality of Pakistan. This struggle infact is essential for achieving higher ends in life.
I come of a middle class of the society I can never think of earning millions of rupees. Still God has His own ways who knows I my get a lottery . And if ever I get it I cannot say whether I will be able to enjoy because sometimes the man is so much overjoyed that he leaves the world. Let me suppose that I am fortunate to get a lottery of millions of rupees. I will try to spend it in the most judicious manner as to derive maximum pleasure out of it.
My colleagues advise me that first of all I should endeavour to improve my living condition. I should have a huge mansion to live in and care for the family and so on. But my conception of life if quite different. Instead of improving my lot I am which more interested in uplifting the poor masses of the country.
Pakistan is a poor country. There are many people in Pakistan who hardly get two square meals a day what to speak of enjoyed the comforts and luxuries of life. They are poorly fed and ill clad. The largest number of these people is living in villages where the main occupation of the people is agriculture. In villages still the old bullock carts are used though the advanced countries have embarked upon mechanized farming. I will offer them loans at a very nominal interest so as to enable them to purchase tractors, fertilizers and better seeds.
I would spend a good portion of money in setting up a hospital with all the modern amenities. I will employ highly qualified doctors. This hospital will be run for the poor masses . Charities will always be awaited from the rich classes. This will save people from the jaws of death. It would be a ray of hope for the poor.
Thus if I become a millionaire my sole object would be to utilize this money for the greatest good of the greatest numbers. To help the poor feed the hungry nurse the sick and better the plight of the people would be my only motto. To help the humanity is a great deed.
Most of the people especially villagers have no means of recreation. I shall spend a part of my wealth for providing means of recreation to the poor. I shall open various social and educational centers at various places. There they would get education and make their lives.
It is painful to find that there is no adequate provision for supporting orphans and widows. I would therefore lose no time in opening new centers for widows and orphans. They would work and learn their livelihood honourably.
Some people would jeer and mock at the utter foolishness of spending millions of rupees in this manner. Probably they do not realize that a man gets spiritual happiness by helping the poor and its is much more than the sensual pleasures one gets from the money he possesses. I wish that I were a millionaire and could fulfill my desires.
