1) I just want to say only one thing about this great achiever. He still holds Indian passport and that is something difficult to understand. I admire him for that.
2) As far as wealth creation is concerned, there are a lot of similarities between Indian and Chinese. Both work doggedly to make money and nothing else. The relentless pursuit of money gives them orgasm. So it is quite natural that they end up amassing huge wealth compared to others. To be frank, the Whiteman does not like such an attitude even though he hides his hatred under the garb of diplomacy.
3) Anyway, I do not want to undermine his hard work. Because, he made it to the top by honest entrepreneurship unlike his counterparts in mother land who think that fraud is the best way to amass wealth.

Indians should feel proud of his achievement and also should start thinking why the same was not possible for him from India , this will definately help others to realise their cherised dreams in India itself. I am sure had he not gone to UK he would not have flourised because of many hassles'. Things that are possible to achieve outside India should also be made possible while living in India for others.

All countries have accepted the fact that Indians are good in every field if given fair chance and opportunities.
