He/she is the lucky one

Way back in late 80's I was Principal of a school.  We were collecting funds for flood victims. To attract more donations we announced a lucky draw. For a ticket of 10 rupees  the lucky draw  prize was a saree and a bedcover costing 2000 rupees.  A small child was deputed  to  take out the lucky  number. Every body was waiting with bated breath.  The lucky  ticket was given to me to announce the result. It was really embarrasing to announce the result. I was the winner. There was a loud applause.  'She is very lucky' was on all lips.



This prompt 'He/she is the lucky one' is written in response to Write Tribe, 100 words on Saturday.
