KBC 5 cr winner's wish list - the civil services
From a monthly salary of Rs 6,000, Sushil Kumar has hit the jackpot by winning Rs 5 crore ($1 million) on the game show 'Kaun Banega Crorepati 5'. He says he will now prepare for the civil services - something he had stopped dreaming about due to his financial situation earlier.
