The Happiest Day of My Life
Man’s life is a mixture of joy and sorrow. The moments of joy come very rarely in his life. Whenever there is an occasion of happiness, man forgets every other thing. Life looks like a sweet dream to him. He enjoys it thoroughly.
10th June 1999 was the happiest day of my life. It was the day when the result of my final examination was declared. I had stood first. My joy knew no bounds to see my result. My parents hugged me. My friends came to my house to congratulate me. I was thrilled to see their love for me. I gave them a tea-party at home. They wanted to know what I proposed to do next.
In the afternoon I was sitting among my friends and relatives. Just at that time a courier arrived. He delivered me a letter. When I opened it, my joy knew no bounds. I had won the Haryana lottery. It was a prize of Rs. Fifteen Lakh. I had suddenly become a millionaire. We all went to the temple to thank God. God was really kind to me.
In the meanwhile, it was evening. My elder brother came home from his office. He was holding a box of sweets in his hand. He told us that the company was sending him abroad for higher training. He was to leave for America next week. This was yet another happy news for us. The day was really very lucky for me. It has given me joy after joy. I can never forget this day. It will go down as one of the happiest days of my life.
