Q.

Can anyone explain to me. How can CK Prahlad be the foremost thinker ahead of Bill Gates and others. Gates built one of the world's biggest companies and is helping "poor" people through his foundation. CK runs around talking about helping the "poor" and hasnt' built anything to show for. His one big grand venture, praja.com, was a miserable failure; it was dead on arrival. Is this guy just another GAS BAG who runs around trying to fix people's ego, in the process of fixing his own?
