    Not what I would call a childhood.

    Better than breaking stones by the roadside, though.

    And I bet he makes more money than I ever did!

    does the guy do anything else

    n please spare the MCSE thingy … ppl write the exam n ask em to write a program n they blink like its green and latin

    but I definitely gt agree on his aptitude :) … he’d proly make a gr8 scientist

    If I remember r8 the tabaloid called him “BillGates” of india or sumthing … bill gates was far from this … entrepreneurship and academics are faaaaaaaaar apart

    btw if you’v observed the irony … the most earning people are more often less educated whilst the less earning are more educated ;)
