Ram Mohammed Thomas is a waiter who gets the chance to appear on “Who Will Win a Billion?” on Indian TV. Even though the orphan has never been to school, an amazing sequence of coincidences allows him to answer the 12 questions correctly and win the billion rupees. The TV show thinks he must be cheating, especially since the producers hadn’t planned on someone winning the billion before advertising revenue brought in more than the billion needed for the prize. So he is arrested. He tells his life story to his attorney, and through the questions the listener learns about his life and his real reason for going on the show. Kerry Shale reads the work well. The range of accents he gives the characters adds immeasurably to one’s enjoyment in listening and in no way impedes the listener’s ability to understand.
