Six Indian nationals working in the UAE have jointly succeeded in winning a lucky draw of 10 lakh dirhams (about 2.72 lakh US dollars). Five of the winners hail from Kerala.
One of the winners, 69-year-old Robert said, "Some of my colleagues used to put money in the lottery, so at their behest, I decided to attend it for the first time." Robert, who has been working in the UAE for 40 years, said that he would give the money to his daughter, who is going to get married soon.
Another winner, 35-year-old Muhammad, said that my colleague Mahaju told me the victory via email. I am very happy and also a little surprised. This win means a lot to me because now I can repay some of my debts and save money for the future of the children.
