Holy shiz! It's a real life Slum Dog Millionaire!


27-year-old Sushil Kumar, who makes $120 a month and is from one of the poorest regions in India, the state of Bihar, was the first person to win the $1 million prize on the country's version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - after getting all of the questions correct!

In case this young man isn't inspirational enough for you, Kumar is using the prize to pay off debt and buy a new home for his family!

We'll Jai Ho to that!

Congratulations, Sir! You should be very proud of your wonderful, well-deserved accomplishment!

    What is so inspirational about this guy and why would he be proud of himself. He won a game show. So maybe being happy for himself is a good thing. Being proud is when you become a doctor or maybe lose a hounded pounds. But winning a contest is more about luck and being at the right place at the right time.

    Re: netgear – TRUTH!!! Cant disagree. "Inspirational" is something that is done over a long period of time and doesnt take luck but hard work and dedication.

    I just hope he stays in his own country where he belongs.

    I hope this inspires many more to sign up for a TV quiz show and win! WTF???

    @ everyone below/above me: Yeah, I think the word 'inspirational' might have been the wrong one to use. But, this man earns a 120 dollars per month. Do you know how hard life can be with this much money?

    I think it's awe-worthy that someone who was born and raised in the slums can get the answers to questions that I'm sure I wouldn't get ( and I am currently working towards my bachelor's degree) So, instead of finding the negative. Why don't you look at the positive side of this story?

    I think Pride here is not about winning the money- but what he can do with the money. His children can finally get an education. They can finally buy a decent house.

    @ Annibannie51248: This man is a genius. Don't be racist. He's a human being too.

    Re: anniebanannie51248 – Sometimes reading comments on sites like these shakes my faith in humanity. You should be happy if he comes into your country and puts his money into your failing banks and contributes something to your shitty economy. Did he say he has any intention of leaving his country? You're an ass. Americans and Europeans go all over the world and get jobs and goes to school and colleges in other countries but the moment someone from another country sets foot in the USA or the UK for any god damn reason its an issue.

    If other countries were to take the same stance and send your asses back to where you came from it would be international relations madness, a total insult, how dare they. Get over yourselves. No one really wants to come there anymore because your economies are in the shitter. I'm sure they'd all rather go to Canada. I know I would. Also for those who say this story isn't inspirational you obviously don't know the meaning of the word. He must have worked incredibly hard to learn the information he needed to answer all those questions to make it to 1 million dollars. Probably questions NONE of you including myself might be able to answer. I watch the US version of this show and the fucking idiots on it are the ones you should be judging. People in your country who were born and raised there don't even know your own national anthem why don't you sit around and judge that? People always look for the negatives in every situation, look for something to judge and pick at. Instead of saying congratulations to him you sit around and bitch and moan about irrelevant bullshit. For someone who came from making nearly nothing to being able to provide for his family is an amazing thing. Good job to him and I wish him and his family well. Spend the money wisely!

    Re: netgear – I don't think inspirational is the right word but "winning a contest is more about luck and being at the right place at the right time"? Maybe you should try and answer all the questions he was asked and then say that again. I bet you wouldn't even reach quadruple figures.

    Hey Netgear! I have been to India twice and the poverty there is unimaginable to ppl like you! What he has to be proud of is the fact he lives in a very poor part of India and actually knew the answers. A huge percentage of ppl there don't get to go to school and have any kind of career! The fact that he overcame his peers and actually knew enough to win a million is incredible and something he CAN and SHOULD be very proud of!

    The fact that the guy was so poor he didn't even own a tv, he went over to his neighbours house to watch the show.If some of you haters and trolls actually read the article he is going to do some wonderful things with the cash. Good luck to him I say.
