Raju owned 321 shoes, 310 belts, 1000 suits!!!

At the height of her fame, the deposed Filipino dictator’s wife Imelda Marcos had more than a thousand pairs of shoes, 888 handbags and

508 gowns. As it turns out, had ex-Satyam Computer boss B Ramalinga Raju not been locked up and his fraud exposed, he may have given Imelda a run for her money in the next few fashion seasons.

Raju’s penchant for high fashion had led him to collect more than a thousand designer suits, if sources in the Enforcement Directorate are to be believed. According to documents prepared by Andhra Pradesh police and given to ED, the disgraced IT czar had 321 pairs of shoes and 310 belts.

Apart from leading a lavish lifestyle, Ramalinga Raju visited various big temples in Andhra Pradesh regularly and donated huge amounts of gold, which collated would approximate about two tonnes. His stargazing pursuits led him to buy a telescope, which valued at more than Rs 1 crore would be the most expensive in any Indian home.

Like many other multi-billionaires, Raju too liked to collect trophy properties around the world. Sources said he had “palatial mansions and villas” in 63 countries.

How crazy an individual can become when has tons and tons of ill-gotten money. This is a concrete example of absolute stupidity too.Share your thoughts.

 This case is just a tip of the iceberg. There are thousands of persons in India, including politicians, businessmen etc who have such lifestyles with illgotten money.

Money can buy any thing fame,name or luxury. But money and power alone cannot protect us always.It is nothing Raju is having more than 300 belt or shoes. If the treasury of corruption is  open one can see more than this .Professionally competence are pushed back .Under the veil of authority the Executive is  protecting the corruption.

 Why are you so excited about Raju? We all do such things when we can. Remember Raju gave jobs to 53000 employees which in turn means support for 250,000 dependents. We can't do it even for one person. Such aberrations are part of history. They were in the past and will also be in the future. 


Don't overlook the fact that his wrongs were achieved with the blessings of politicians who made as much money as Raju did. Who will investigate them? Have you not read what Supreme Court said about CBI in Mulayam Singh's case and what CBI did in Nithari case. It gives clean chit to Pandher who is awarded death sentence by the Court. Can there be more shameful things for an investigating agency whom we treat with awe and respect. CBI in fact is nothing but the servant of the ruling masters.
