    I am an admirer of Azim Premji of Wipro, not this guy.

    Some become rich through their innovative ideas. Eg Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Mark Zuckerberg. Some just inherit wealth and be rich without any innovation. Wealth through market capitalisation is a big bubble. RCom went down from Rs 600 to 60 paise.

    Bill Gates and Warren Buffet donate more than Mukesh Ambani''s worth.
