The gap between rich and poor - NRN Murthy

The gap between rich and poor countries has doubled in the past 40 years. ... There are 1.2 billion people in this world who live in extreme poverty, on income of less than $1 per day. About one billion people lack access to safe drinking water. ... Can we be catalysts in wiping the tears off the eyes of the poorest of the poor? Can the chime bring solace not just to the chosen few on this country but to a forlorn child in the remote lands of Africa? ... How can we address the myriad problems that cripple the development of mankind as a whole?'

Nagawara Ramarao Narayana Murthy like his divine wife Sudha Murthy does strongly believe in giving. Giving speeches, that is.
