    Warren buffet,

    Is a richest man in all sense of the word. people say that he is not a good parent for not helping out his own daughter..but may be he had his own reasons..

    He lives so simple..I get to read lot of his works, lectures everything when i browse the financial papers...and not a day goes when he is not quoted..

    A greatBow to a simple rich man....

    Warren Buffet is really a known icon in the Business field. Not only his wealth but also his heart is really big. He donated an unimaginable amount towards charity in 2006. Check the article here.
