The following story is about a millionaire in India who is not your typical high roller. His name is Ajat Munot. He is a business tycoon with a considerable fortune. His wealth allows him to afford special treats that few people in his country can afford.
India is well known for its high poverty rate. You have over 78 million homeless people. These people are forced to live and eat on the streets. Their children cannot attend school under these conditions. This prevents them from ever accessing a better life. Most of them have to beg on the streets or do some jobs for petty cash. This is a growing problem in India.
Although many businesses have settled, it has not been enough to have a significant impact on most of the population. For Ajat Munot, it’s not just about making money and the bottom line. He wants to leave a legacy to his children and his country.
Ajat Munot provided $11 million. It’s for his daughter’s wedding. When a millionaire has a wedding they will give it their all and in India weddings are a huge event. Rather than spend the money he had set aside on his daughter’s wedding, however, he decided to invest in his community. As a kind of wedding donation, Mr. Munot decided to build housing for the homeless.
The apartments were allocated by the municipality to those most in need and not drug addicts. This is such a generous gift that this father has given to both his community and his daughter. After all, the gift was a legacy on her behalf.
While Mr. Munot’s daughter may not have the multi-million dollar wedding she envisioned, I’m sure with a father like her she’s thrilled with what he’s done. Check out the heartwarming story.
