I know a Similar story happened to another Lottery winner in Sri Lanka.
The person was a "Iskole mahaththaya" living a normal life in a village between Galle and Colombo. He had a nice good looking wife , teaching in the same school. With 3 kids they were enjoying respectable and easy life. They had 2 or 3 acres of cinnamon and half acre paddy . He had a motorbike and a "landmaster" used for his cinnamon and paddy works.
All of sudden, one day he became the first in SL to win the biggest fortune , 40 million Shanida or Sanwardhana lottery. ( Koti hatharak)
Rest of the story is almost same. Irrespective of the place or race they all seems to be followed the same path for destruction.
He bought a new house. A vehicle + driver. Resigned from teaching job comparing his wealth to his salary.
Lot of new friends arrived to the scene. He became the leading person in all the occasions in the area.
New friend introduced new things to him.
Sir, Koti pathiyek unama loku mahaththuru winodeta ena than walata yanna ona. There were always 10-15 people around him , some became self appointed body-guards . He readily spent lot of money for his team.
One day , in a night club a nice looking young girl was introduced to this millionaire Iskole mahaththaya. As always, the friends taught him " you must enjoy the life sir. "
After this incidence his main business was exploring this newly found pleasure. You can imagine how these well trained girls handle him to suck his . . . . .. .. I mean money.
From that day his old fashioned, cultured wife was nothing to him.
Within 3 months he divorced his wife , chased her away and married a young chick.
Meantime, self appointed economic advisers flooded new ideas to him. "Why do not you become the leading businessman of South?" , "We can buy few factories , thousands of girls and men under you ..... ", "you can easily beat that .... mudalali" etc.
He bought few factories and lands using about 2o million left with him and the banks provided rest as loans without any question.
He appointed his "Akkage kolla, massina "and friends to the management. Without much difficulty they were able to "turnaround" the profit making entities to loss making rubbish.
Banks sued him for defaulting.
To make this short, I can write, within very few years of time he lost everything, he had to sell even the 3 acres his ancestors cinnamon land , his house and everything to pay back his loans. Still he was in debt to some people and to some banks.
I do not know what happened to him thereafter.
Someone told me he works as a labourer in his own lands , unable to do hard work, most of the times given small jobs like weeding and collecting cinnamon leaves etc.
His ex wife, who was a very kind and nice woman, unable to live there after he divorced her, went somewhere with her kids. Her teaching job supported her to raise the children .
