    How selfish you people are. there is lot of people who are dying for food only. why can’t you donate for them in India? there is lot of farmers are commiting suicide because of loan. But you don’t care at all. you need only business and fame, that’s all.

    we will not remind you. if possible take lessons from Nana Patekar who has given every earned from his life to help poor farmers. Hats off to him. Love him. people will never forget him.

      This seems to be a very natural and obvious response, however, it could also be argued that creating visibility amongst these ívy-league’institutes has a ripple effect on the India brand/highlight success contribution of the Indian community not to mention social currency to further their interests -perhaps, a hallowed perception of ROI which somehow escapes if you are not based in India or not have strong Indian market interest. So, it made sense for Narayanamurthy to donate for the study of sanskrit @ Harvard; and, am sure many NRIs ( i hate this bureaucratic term) are and have contributed, and would continue but the key is how many such institutes of repute exist currently ( nobody wants to hand over money to govt institutes barring few IITs) – so, the mindset needs to be one of establishing such institutes in India!

    It is strange you call this a selfish activity! Raving and ranting aside, by no counts, these donations constitute a selfish activity!

    How many of these donors would have donated their money anonymously?

    Swati is right in calling them SELFISH.

    They should have invested in Indian University which are producing incompetent students. Hope donation in dollars may change the basic culture of Indian University.

    Swati’s comments are spot-on.
