Bill "Window" Gates & Warren Buffet teach Indians Some Charity!
 It is difficult to make money honestly most of the times. We are living in the era of easymoney, casino money, lotto money, cheapest money, QE2 money and bail out money.However, such easy money can be made only by "House" or big guys sitting in thegolden towers decorating Manhattan skyline in New York or within the boundary of White House, Fed and Treasury in Washington.When the money loses the cost, it becomes amean to manipulate the market, people andentire environment. Cheap money istherefore most pollutive element on thisplanet, dangerous than even CO2 emissions.Corruptions galore everywhere - there is norule of law. If someone is caught in "InsiderTrading" he is condoned by allowing him topay fines of few or few hundred milliondollars when the magnitude of fraud runsinto billions or even trillions of dollars. Thedays of millions and billions are gone - wehave made progress, tremendous progress,we can talk of about only trillions. Look around. The bailout costs are in trillions,

Madoff and Stanford also defraud in billions. Europe and Japan also talk only of trillions.The total derivative outstanding today is in excess of $ 700 trillion - 100,000 times of world's entire population of just over $ 6 billion.
Noblest Soul amid the hooligans
 Even in the midst of such hooliganism, we still have civil and law abiding individualsand companies. It is a rule of self balancing nature. In the midst of Madoff, Stanford andRajratnam, we still have fantastic corporations like IBM, Merck, Exxon, Chevron, Apple,Intel, HP, P&G etc. While almost everyone on the Wall Street want to become an instant millionaire or billionaire, believing in motto that by hook and crook the money must bemade, we still have some of the noblest soul on the planet like Bill "Window" Gates andWarren Buffet who want to give away billions of dollars, almost entire fortune of theirlife time, to charity.

Gates and Buffet - Opposite Characters unified in Noble Cause
 Gate and Buffet are diametrically opposite characters. Bill Gates was a hardnosedtechno-businessman who would not want to give away anything and would doanything to scuttle the competition, either by destroying them or taking them over. It could never be visualized that such man would turn a philanthropic one day. Suchtransformation could happen only due to one single force - a woman - the gift of God tothe mankind. Was it due to his wife Melinda? Well, I do not know much about her. But it could be. A woman would not want to give away even a thousand dollar, whereas weare talking about billions here. It should be with her consent or motivation.
 
Warren Buffet is soft spoken silvery haired legendaryinvestor known more to me for his famous wavinghand than investments. He has made billions the waya bird builds its nest. He still loves his old home. He isnon assuming but while announcing his intention todonate his entire fortune to charity, he forgot oneproverbial wisdom - "
Charity begins at home
". Heignored his children and grand children, of courseafter reserving their future, but still not large enoughto make them happy. In short, he ignored his basicparental duty.
 
That aside, the most difficult part of their charitable donation is the conversion of intention into reality. When one publicly announces donation of billions of dollars incharity, crooks and scoundrels spring up like mushroom.
Easy to earn, difficult to give away
 Both of them realize that it is fairly easy to make money but very difficult to distributeamongst the cause. They also do not seem to know how to help the fellow human beingor people in distress. They look beyond the borders of America when the Americanthemselves have turned from rich to middle class to poor people. They go to Africa todistribute medicines to help them cure from HIV or AIDS but what they are doing is toaddress the result rather than cause.
