Money gushes about itself,” Though I am a piece of paper, I have never seen the dustbin.” How so ever rich a person maybe they never wish to throw away unless they have to escape legal bindings. A rich wish to be richer and a poor wants to be rich. Never ever a person born with a desire to be poor and stay poor throughout life.
People say money can’t buy happiness but what can poverty buy other than sorrow and misery. Money is dear in singular form as well as in plural form. World is full of examples when people went through lots of hardships, earned fortune. Where have you seen anyone that becomes bankrupt and lived happily ever after?
Money empowers, enhances and improves the lifestyle of personnel earning it. The more of it is merrier and this is a universal rule. Fame and name are complementary with money. One earns money, the rest two follows of their own. A rich person is always brainy. To mention many brains, work continuously at the back, to multiply the owner’s wealth.
Literally, Wealth weighs a lot. Money brings responsibility with itself. In society one earns money and in return society demands pay back it to society in term of charity. In case one doesn’t pays off, the societal norms are so strict that it snatches it away from the owner somehow.
To be generous and charitable one need to earn huge amount of money. A meagre earner thinks twice before doing charity as hard-earned money is difficult to part with.
I am not among the millionaire breed of world but who doesn’t wish to be one. At times I wish I could have million dollars at my disposal and those millions multiply on daily basis. I am not being a day dreamer but then if little bit of day dreaming render pleasure, what’s the harm with same?
My family has enough to meet our basic needs and tit bits of luxuries too. But to meet the grandeur of millionaire is way ahead. To start with, if I could have million dollars to spend I will start redefining my lifestyle.
At least half a dozen of big cars not smaller than a Roll Royce should be in the porch of my villa/ mansion. Dressed chauffeur in them. Number of house helpers for the maintenance of the same, are quintessential. Lavish breakfast, lunch and dinner should be daily custom.
World tours are being mandatory every quarter of year. Lot of shopping is on the top of to do list. Parties should follow for the celebration of even the smallest joy of my families. Private helicopter is not a luxury for a millionaire I suppose. Rather it’s a must have assets.
To keep my wealth growing, I should be having hefty investments in share markets. Keeping in mind long term gains, I should be having a team of expert advisers to assist me. I would, off course pay them. Property in almost every prominent city of world is not too much what I am asking for. Forbes list of richest person, I should top once.
Being a sought of technology savvy person, I wish to own all the latest gadgets available on this planet. Be it the latest I- phone, DSLR camera to capture my moments, mobile printer to name a few.
Adventure excites me. So I should try my hands at all the adventurous sport available ranging from scuba diving to ski diving. Mountaineering with assistants is not a bad idea to enjoy life in close quarter with nature.
I am not so self-centred to forget the social responsibilities. I will be doing charity a lot but as it’s said charity beings at home in the beginning. So I will follow the aforesaid axiom.
I will be contributing toward building of schools and hospitals to impart knowledge. Hygienic Hospitals are basic need of any nation. But the five-star hotel style hospitals are luxuries. So, I am more inclined toward philanthropic aspect. Building infrastructures to help needy and poor section. Schools with safety of kids its priority is what I dream of. To quote the words of Shri Rabindranath Tagore
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
I wish I could dress up every naked child with my wealth and provide food for hungry stomachs. I know I can’t reach to everyone but if everyone will think this and sit back who will do it? Each one has to contribute for the Upliftment of the society. And millionaires have to put their feet forward first.
I know I will not be the first to be charitable with wealth. But the list of the same need adds on with every passing moment and day. Examples in support are Bill Gates, Warren Buffet and Andrew Carnegie. I would be the one to follow the league.
Last but not the least, society need a lot to do towards betterment of female section of society. Developing nations like India, Bangladesh etc. need hefty investment for the softer section. Also the countries like Saudi Arabia where women are more of commodity need change in mind-sets.
That has to be forcefully levied. Every change whether physical or mental, requires resources. And monetary benefits and incentives has been great motivational force behind new wave of change in any society. Being a woman myself I certainly want special privileges for my fellow beings. Am I exaggerating something?
Certainly not, but with resources of that of a millionaire I would do a lot more than expected in this direction.To make my dream of being a millionaire true, I do buy lottery tickets a lot. May be god would someday pay me for my philanthropic ideology.
