    They are not god. Actually, they are nothing as they are trying to provide education to the poor but the city Mumbai needs 12 lakh crores in INR to get a home for every family. Mumbai holds largest number of slums, it is the most poor city with such stars which are good for nothing. They have just 10 lakh crores so they can’t try to make a change and nobody will opt for education if they don’t even have a home.

    I like NIta Ambani. She does a lot for underprivileged children.

      What exactly does she do for the underprivileged children? How many chn and for how long? They waste so much on themselves–if only they did more for the poor in India, widows, education for chn as well as university students, single parents etc etc. Until they become like the Warren Buffet and others like him–I do not class them as worthy of any special regard.
      Thanks
