Everyone mocked him insulted him that you must dream according to your status. You are born in a family so your only aim is to get a permanent job and then get married and feed your family. If you dream to be a millionaire you’ll not even earn a single penny. Societies Image of a millionaire is that of a scamster they earn better because they travel on wrong roads which will only make you greedy and arrogance. If you become millionaire then you will only think about yourself. All millionaires are selfish they don’t have family or friends they will only look for profits that’s all. You can never be a millionaire with no one below you. You only become millionaire by moving ahead of everyone. Everyone kept demoralizing him. People asked Ankur to look at his face in the mirror and see where you belong to. You can never be the one you dream to be that’s the bitter truth.

He is doing this to avoid the circumstances he faced in his dream. He realized that his dream meant that he wanted to run away from the society but society is always there to pull you back towards them and everyone wears a mask no one is real in this society. He realized that he’ll be trapped if he tries to escape from the society so he started following everything society wanted him to do.
He is now searching for everything he can do to earn a good amount of money. He never realized that he is so talented that he do not even need to find a job he can easily make job want him or hire him . He is a passionate whi speaks his heart out, he only writes for himself . He never revealed his thoughts to anyone . He applied for the companies or firms who are looking for writers and pays well to earn a livelihood. He didn’t get any of his required job instead he got a job letter from a call center where he has no interest but he also have no choice so he opted for the job . He started working in a call center in day and night shifts . He is working hard giving his everything to the job but he was only get paid money in return not happiness. One day while going back home he saw poor kids across the road playing . He went their and asked them that what are you playing and you guys are so happy playing this game what is this. The kid replied that we want to be rich in future so we are practicing to behave like them and so in this game I am rich men and I am ordering these poor kids to complete the work they are given and they will be rewarded with money and food. Ankur asked them that why are you ordering them to do your work.
The kid replied that I am doing exactly what rich guys do to our parents and us they order us to build buildings for them and after completion we are not allowed to enter there why because we are dirty, they will ask our mothers to wash their clothes and utensils but if we’ll touch them they’re become dirty . So I will treat them the same way every poor is treated. Ankur asked them that do you think you will be rich one day and your dreams will come true. The kid replied that we may not be rich in future or maybe millionaire but if we don’t even try to walk on our own roads then only we’ll be losers as well. This line impacted ankur and he also realized that he has given up on his dreams just because society has an bad image of a millionaire. Whatever he saw in mirror everytime he looked at it is what the society looks at him and others who are above them or who dream to go higher.
