WHO IS RICHER THAN BILL GATES ACCORDING TO HIM?
There is one person whom Bill Gates considers richer than him. Bill Gates has shared a story about the richer person. Many years back, when he wasn’t rich or famous, once at Newyork airport, he came across a newspaper vendor. Bill Gates wanted to buy a newspaper but found that he doesn’t have enough money. Then he returned it to the vendor, told him of not having enough money. The vendor said he is giving the newspaper for free and on his insistence, Bill Gates took the newspaper. Coincidently after 2-3 years, he landed at the same airport, and again he was short of change for a newspaper. Again the vendor offered it for free, but he refused to get and said he can’t take that for he doesn’t have change that day too. But due to the vendor’s compulsion, Bill Gates agreed to take the newspaper from him. After 19 years of gap, when Bill Gates become very famous for being the richest in the world, he suddenly remembers that newspaper vendor. He began searching for him, and after about one and a half months of searching, he finally found him. When he asked him does he knows him, he replied “yes, you are Bill Gates”. Bill Gates wanted to repay him so he asked the vendor “whatever you want in your life, tell me, I shall fulfill it.”
The vendor raised a question that, “Sir, don’t you think that by doing so you won’t be able to match my help? I had helped you when I was a poor newspaper vendor, and you are trying to help me now when you have become the richest man in the world. How could this match mine?”
Bill Gates was astonished by this single question. On that day he realized that the newspaper vendor is richer than him because he didn’t wait to become rich to help someone.
People having a good heart rather than having a lot of money are considered as the richest in the world.
