If I Were a Millionaire Essay for School Students

It has been very rightly said that "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride". But it is wonderful to have wishes. Even though they may not come true, there is no harm in dreaming.

Although I am not a poor man, but I would like to have so much money that I could do something for those who are less fortunate than me. I do not see any harm in having every luxury for myself, if in turn I can do something worthwhile for the poor. It has been my dream to see each child well nourished. When I see children on the streets with no food I feel great pain. Although their parents try their best, they cannot provide their children with food, clothing and shelter. Then they turn to begging.

If I were a millionaire I would do my best to provide permanent shelter, food and clothing for the poor. I would open schools for them where the children could learn I would help them to be so independent that they can find fruitful employment for themselves.

I would also build hospitals so as to provide them with good medical facilities. India has progressed a lot and we do have good medical facilities but the poor people cannot afford these. If a poor child is sick, there is every possibility that he may die due to lack of medicines and doctors. I would like to build a hospital with modern facilities where people will get medical assistance free of cost.

I would donate money to social service organisations like destitute homes, orphanages, homes for the aged and reformatories.

Unfortunately when one becomes extremely rich, one he forget the plight of those who are less fortunate. My motto would be, "live and let live". In fact I would do all that I could for my parents too so that they may not have to break their backs working for us. I would make them so comfortable that even in their old age they would feel great to be alive. I would like to enjoy the fruits of money but I would always remain sensitive and sympathetic to the agony of those who are less fortunate.
