From Painter to Crorepati with Diwali Punjab Lottery Win
Last week Sanjeev Kumar was an ordinary painter who made a living painting and whitewashing homes in the Una town centre, in the state of Himachal Pradesh. However, on Friday 1st November, Lady Luck shone down on Kumar as he won one of the first prizes in the Punjab State Maa Lakshmi Diwali Pooja Bumper lottery, 2019. He now has to think about what to do with the Rs 2.5 crore jackpot prize that his winning ticket, number A-411577 landed him. The other jackpot winner has yet to come forward.
Kumar was returning home from a visit to the hospital, where he had been taking his son for a medical checkup when he decided to buy two tickets for the Punjab State Diwali Bumper lottery from a vendor in Nangal. The tickets cost Rs 500 each, so he bought one for himself and one for his son to cheer him up after his hospital visit. After he purchased the two tickets he quickly forgot about them, because he could never imagine winning anything with them, let alone taking the jackpot! After Kumar had found out about his amazing win he was shocked, and when he told his family they did not believe him at first and had to confirm his news with the ticket seller.
Kumar, who lives in the village of Churudu has told the press that his family of a daughter, a son, his wife and his father are all very happy with his win, as it will turn around all their lives in the future. Kumar has said that he wants to spend his winnings on starting his own business as well as securing a better future for his children.
