Taking Up With Billionaires


WealthymattersThese days I come across a lot of women who are keen to exchange their beauty to enjoy the benefits of some or other man’s resources.Most of them cut pretty poor deals and the others cut one or other good deal only to lose the benefits they just gained via the next poor choice they make.The following is a reality check for women trading on looks to get ahead:

One of them,77-year-old Qimat Rai Gupta, promoter of Havells India ,broke the billion-dollar personal wealth barrier for the first time. Another, Irfan Razack of Prestige Group, a Bangalore-based real estate developer, stands at the cusp of doing so.
