Mohnish Pabrai is both a shrewd investor and a shrewd philanthropist!

 

Here is a link to a couple page Forbes article on Mohnish Pabrai's philanthropic efforts.  The article provides details on how Mohnish helps underprivileged kids in India get educated and for many, admitted to the Indian Institutes of Technology (which is the school Bill Gates said he would recruit from if he could only recruit at one school in the whole world!).  At the end of the article, Mohnish calculates his philanthropic investments' ROI to be a 1,667 times return!

She’s one of four children in a home whose monthly income is roughly $50.

 

According to Narain’s application to Pabrai’s ­Dakshana program, her family lives in a small flat without a refrigerator, television or computer (though they do have cellphones).

 

WOW - that says something about the order of things one will do without/basic human priorities! 

 

Especially now that "cellphones" are incresingly becoming televisions and computers too.
