Let me tell you a story about a “Poor” guy.

This guy was born to his parents, both lawyers in #California. His childhood was normal and he went on to study in the prestigious Stanford University. Unfortunately he left Stanford under the pretext of pursuing his dream to set up a “Small” mobile application. Probably he didn’t make the grade and dropped out.

Three friends embarked on a journey to set up a company and make millions. One of the three was later betrayed and screwed out of the deal. A dastardly act to say the least. The remaining two friends continued the journey to fame and money.
One fine day, this guy decided to put his inner feelings on an email and share with his friends. The most famous of this string of emails read: “Hope at least six girls sucked your d*cks last night. Cuz that didn’t happen for me”. The exchange of emails continued amongst friends and the content is too explicit to share. Clearly the “Poor” guy was desperate.

Nonetheless, the two friends were “Lucky” and ended up creating a mobile based application which they had dreamed of. They set up a “Small” company in Silicon Valley where so many have made fortunes. Their future seemed bright and the world seemed a much better place for forgetting this guy’s misdemeanors.
But, this guy not content with insulting the beautiful gender, decided to insult a whole country by calling it “Poor” and that his application was not meant for “Poor” countries.

The aftermath…
The “Small” company’s ratings dropped drastically and people started uninstalling the application as the whole country decided to boycott the application.
The “Poor” guy who had made the comment hid under his bed weeping, while his company decided to completely deny the fact that this guy had ever passed the comment.

The future…
It remains to be seen if this guy comes out from under his bed and apologizes for his comments or the country continues to tear apart the company until it lay in ruins. Surely the people of this country have a big enough heart to forgive this “Poor” guy. After all, he might not have meant what he said. He’s just a “Rich” guy who looks upon others as if they are all “Poor”.
The moral of the story…

It is better to be a “Good” guy than a “Rich” guy.
