If wishes were horses, even beggars would ride. But sometimes dream come true. I am poor in life and my wishes are hopelessly small. I live in a state of uncertainty and I never know whether I shall be able to afford my next meal.
But there is no check on one’s fancy. Fancy is my luxury. I wish I were a millionaire!
As a poor man, I have often experienced that Rich men are generally selfish to the extent of being cruel. Their outlook on life is not human but materialistic. They forget that to be rich is not to be in human. When I am rich, I shall not forget god and god’s men.
I long to lead some days in comfort. Money will end the state of uncertainty in which I live. Riches are a panacea. Poverty loses friends and makes one disrespectable and unacceptable in society. Wealth attracts and makes one honorable.
If I were a millionaire, I would be in the company of rich friends and would be honorable. But being a millionaire is only a part of my desire.
I know I get education under very difficult circumstances. So I shall open schools and colleges for the education of all. My great aim in life is to establish a univesierty in the model of ancient Indian universities. I want to go back to our old culture which was once the pride of the world.
A wealthy man can do much good to this world. Wealth often spoils man. Money along with comforts and care brings evil also. Rich men are generally victims to one evil or the other. I have natural dislike for the base and the disreputable. I was born human and shall live a pious and noble life. This duty openly man owns to god. I shall fulfill this duty. I shall set a noble example before others and shall be a brilliant light for misguided millionaires.
I would very much wish to encourage social service in the country. I shall make a trust which will look after the welfare of orphans. It is a pity that in our country wealthy persons do not possess charitable qualities. I shall lead a noble life and cut down my own expenses so that I may help others to live better.
I am a noble-hearted and simple person. That is what I could remain even if I become a millionaire.
