Transport In-charge drives off with Dhs 100000

The latest winner of the Postcard Millionaire draw held at Ajman was moved beyond words at his stroke of luck!
“Four years back when I heard of the Postcard Millionaire, I was intrigued, it seemed like a virtual ticket to all my dreams! I bought my first pack, it was priced at AED 30,” remembers a nostalgic Chandrababu.
“Buying the Postcard Millionaire pack had become a habit for me, and I would expectantly wait for my name to be announced! This win has not only won me a large sum of money but has also imprinted my confidence in the product. I know it really works!” said the joyous Chandrababu.
Way back in 1976 Chandrababu came to Dubai with a hope to earn a better living for himself and his family. In 1980 he got a job as a transport in-charge with a chemical manufacturing company and as a result of hard work and dedication he had earned just enough money to be able to bring his family, wife and two sons, to stay along with him and provide his children with the suitable of education.
“The call from The Millionaire Co. was absolutely unexpected, I was in a total state of shock, I did not know what to do and how to react, it was a feeling that I could not express. I immediately gave a call to my wife and told her about the win and then informed the rest of my family and boss. It was a great moment for all of us!"
A dedicated family man, Chandrababu plans to use his money to financially support his brothers and sisters, fund his children’s education and divert the remaining sum to pay off the outstanding amount for a land purchased by him in his hometown in Kerela, India.
