Somebody by the name of Mahadev Desai sent this from Ahmedabad on the wealth or rather richness of Bill Gates.

An American oil tycoon had once said that you are really rich when it is difficult to count your wealth. Therefore, the wealth of the Richest man in the world is not easy to describe.This is a handsome attempt.

One should also mention his other richness- his and Warren buffet’s grand gesture of creating the world’s richest philanthropic foundation to help the less fortunate. Even in the pullitzer prize winning book “The world is Flat”, the author says that though he vehemently opposed some of the business practices of Microsoft, the work done by his foundation needs to be appreciated. I have therefore added a small poem in addition to the write-up

Writeup by Mr Desai

Bill Gates earns US$250 every SECOND,
that's about US$20 Million a DAY and US$7.8 Billion

If he drops a thousand dollar, he won't
even bother to pick it up bcoz the 4 seconds he
picks it, he would've already earned it back.

The US national debt is about 5.62
trillion, if Bill Gates were to pay the debt by
himself; he will finish it in less then 10 years.

He can donate US$15 to everyone on earth
but still be left with US$5 Million for his pocket

Michael Jordan is the highest paid athlete
in US. If he doesn't drink and eat, and keeps up his
annual income i.e. US$30 Million, he'll have to wait
for 277 years to become as rich as Bill Gates is

If Bill Gates was a country, he would be
the 37th richest country on earth.

If you change all of Bill Gate's money to
US$1 notes, you can make a road from earth to moon,
14 times back and forth. But you have to make that
road non-stop for 1,400 years, and use a total of
713 BOEING 747 planes to transport all the money.

Bill Gates is 40 this year. If we assume
that he will live for another 35 years, he has to
spend US$6.78 Million per day to finish all his
money before he can go to heaven.

Last but not the least: If Microsoft
Windows' users can claim US$1 for every time their
computers hang because of Microsoft Windows, Bill
Gates will be bankrupt in 3 years!!!!!!! !!!!



If I were to summarize this account of good old Bill
With so much wealth , he can never, be over the hill
The fact that he is no run of the mill
Is not only proven by his exceptional skill
Instead of choosing to will ( to his descendents)
Mankind’s agony he has chosen to mitigate if not kill (Foundation)
As the world’s two richest men get together , time stands still
Vis-à-vis their gesture, their other achievements amount to nil
The trend they have set is the real cause for thrill
It can never be expressed in words no matter how many pages I fill

A place in history is secure for Bill Gates
Wonder how his achievements it rates
It won’t be restricted to boring dates
In a world of trivial jealousies and pet hates
He has tried to ensure that the rich and poor are mates.
Hope the memory of his grand gesture never abates
Hope he is emulated among countries by the United states
