Perunnon Rajan, who won the first prize of Rs 12 crore in Kerala New Year-Christmas Bumper held on February 10, still feels that it is just a dream as he is yet to overcome the surprise and shock that came with his sudden change in fortune. After deducting taxes, he would get around Rs 7.2 crore. Rajan (55), a daily-wage labourer and a resident of Puralimala Kaithachal Kurichya Colony in Maloor, runs his family by doing odd jobs. Despite financial difficulties, he always bought lottery tickets in the hope that one day there would be a windfall.
