Q: What did you make of last night's event?
But then he and his wife on the personal side, they wanted to give back in education but they were really doing in a rural setting and so to hear how they think about those two because in India right now, there is a lot of corporate social responsibility but what we are trying to stimulate is more individual philanthropic dollars going and so he really had a good model for that. I think that stimulated a lot of discussion in the room and that was particularly interesting to me.
That's probably why a get together like we had is catalytic because people realize there are more people doing smart things than I have realized. They are having some of the same challenges I am having, I can go and collaborate with them. So I think it will change, I think people will want to be more open. But that's the difficulty.
