September 17 is the day everything changed for Anoop. This father residing in southern India has the winning ticket for the Loto that day: he thus pockets 3.2 million euros. A fortune in his country of origin, rather well done since this professional driver had to go to Malaysia to treat his sick son.

My son is sick and I can’t take him to the doctor.” And for good reason: in front of his home, people are waiting for him to leave to extract money from him. A real nightmare for Anoop and his family, especially since the latter has not yet received the money. “No one seems to understand it, even though I’m just repeating it…”
