Anup, a driver from Kerala, India, is so overwhelmed with requests for financial assistance that he regrets winning the jackpot in the lottery.

The man won 250 million rupees ($3.06 million) in a state government lottery in mid-September.

But a week later, he posted a video asking strangers to stop harassing him and his family.

“I wish I hadn’t won,” he says. The third prize was better.
