In the lower middle-class family, a genius boy was born named Sumit. With the frugal money that his parents could save, they made him go to a good school. The boy had a knack for numbers and performed outstandingly well in Maths. He participated in various competitions, science Olympiads, inter-school events and so on. As he bagged prizes in the majority of the competitions, he earned himself a scholarship at IIT coaching classes. And there isn’t any surprise in the fact that he did have admission to the most prestigious institute of the country.
His charm couldn’t escape in college as well and soon everyone knew about him. After college, he bagged a good placement and then got married to a girl from the similar background as theirs.
As both of them were earning, their financial position improved drastically. Sumit made sure to improve their financial status and give his parents a comfortable life. He knew how difficult life had been for his parents and how much they struggled in their youth just to pay for his education. That is why he wanted to be rich. And give his parents a life that they had never dreamt of.
In between all of this his father died. It was a hard time for the family but they survived. Naturally, his mother was devastated, but soon she got the gift of the grandchild and she couldn’t be any happier.
While his wife decided to stay at home for the kids, Sumit soared new heights in his career... promotions and rewards kind of became the occasional thing to celebrate in the family. He made the kind of money that no one in his clan ever made. He had distant relatives who were quite well-off but Sumit left them all behind in the race of making money.
Soon, he became the CEO of the company which was valued a billion dollar enterprise. His work required him to travel overseas and their company knew know limits.
His interviews, articles, his achievements at such a less age were something every news article, magazine and journals were loaded with. He made a huge house for his family... which now had an additional member, his daughter, who was the apple of his eyes.
A lot of events were organized to award him for his achievements in life he was honored at a couple of events and was invited to felicitate the upcoming talent in the country. By this time, he was quite a celebrity. But one thing that made him so dear to everyone was in spite of being at the top and a global face now, he was always grounded to his roots! Never he ever that kind of snobbish attitude. He had always been a down to earth person.
Life was picture perfect. He had a huge house, a beautiful wife, two adorable kids, his mother and all the resources in the world. The family took frequent vacations abroad and lead a luxurious life.
His life is all set... and his wife and children are really lucky to enjoy this kind of life, what else could one ask for, one should live life the way they do, they have no worries in life, the kids too are smart, the mother has a great circle, and the old lady in the house is relishing the days nobody ever thought she would... this is what everyone who knew the family talked about!
They were living the life shown in the movies!
But this was not it. There was another side to it which only the family knew and they were fighting it day and night. Their daughter, who was only 4, was fighting cancer! She was diagnosed with blood cancer when she was 1 and since then, it was all about rushing to the hospitals and getting the right treatment. The doctors had told them she would hardly survive! It would be a miracle if she would be able to make it till 10! Not a single soul in the world knew the family would be going through so much! For, for the world, it was ‘the perfect life’ they were living. While in reality, they were fighting each day!
It didn’t matter then if he had money, it didn’t matter if he was rich and successful... all that mattered was the life of his daughter.
