A good book on a rainy day is happiness for me - Ruskin Bond

Sunday, November 02, 2014


A vernacular newspaper of South India in its Sunday magazine  recently carried an article on  the simple life style of some of the leading billionaires of globe,  and Mark Zuckerberg is one amongst them. 

Majority of the folks may not know  him by his name Mark Zuckerberg.  But, he is familiar to everybody as Facebook's poster boy. 

Zuckerberg personifies simplicity.  Whenever, you see him, he appears in grey colour T' Shirt only.  He doesn't like fancy dresses.  His wardrobe contains full of  grey T'shirts which he
uses by changing them daily.  Though his networth is billions of dollars,   he still likes to go to  road-side restaurants. Every Friday after work hours, he enjoys passing some time with his employees in his office.   He was  on the rented house  in California for so many years and only  in 2011, he bought a house.  Still, he uses his old Japanese car.

When, I asked Google Maa, to figure out his latest wealth, it bounced back with a figure : $ 33.3 billion.  It further said that he is now the 16th richest person in the world.

The beauty of great people  is that they keep lofty ambitions in their lives and dismiss what they have already achieved.  In Zuckerberg's case, the goal in front of him is ' make internet available to every person on earth'.  With this goal in mind,  he built a website called :    It is an effort to forge global partnerships between technology leaders, non-profits, local communities and experts to bring the internet to the two thirds of the world's population that doesn't have it.

Stupendous  but achievable goal for a man of this strength and resolve !
