The 11 women, who are Haritha Karma Sena workers under the Parappanangadi Corporation, had pooled money among themselves and bought the ticket for Rs 250.

Reportedly, a few days ago, Radha, a sanitation worker in Parappanangadi of Kerala’s Malappuram district asked a few of her colleagues if they could buy a lottery ticket - a monsoon bumper that would bring a cash prize of Rs 10 crore. But the women working with Radha, the Haritha Karma Sena workers under the Corporation, did not have Rs 250, the price of one ticket, to spare. They decided to share the amount among the 11 of them, so nine of them could chip in Rs 25, and two of them Rs 12.50 each, but a few of them did not have even that. Finally, pooling in what they had, and borrowing some, they paid Rs 250 to a lottery agent and bought the ticket. The women were surprised when they got a call on July 27, Thursday, with the news that they won the first prize.

This is the fourth bumper lottery ticket purchased by the group of women. Last year, they won Rs 1000 in the Onam bumper lottery.

Kuttymalu and Baby, the two women who pitched in with Rs 12.5, tell TNM that Baby is yet to give her share of the money. "Both of us are relatives, so Kuttymalu gave Rs 25. I have money with me only when I get my wages, so I will pay her soon. We always share things between us. Even if it is a cake, we buy one and share, as we have only a little money,” both of them say.
