Readers React: $100 million for a wedding in India is an abomination
To the editor: The people of India are on average very poor. Millions there live in squalid conditions.
Yet multibillionaire Mukesh Ambani decided that $100 million would be better spent on his daughter’s wedding than on improving the lot of his countrymen. I know it would have been an enormous sacrifice, but he probably could have thrown a decent wedding for her if he had only spent $50 million or so and used the rest to address the plight of so many of the Indian people.
I wonder how average Indians felt about this great event.
