It looks like the modest Vinod Gupta has done it again. This time, he has chosen to invest in Rampur Maniharan, a community in his hometown. Apparently, he has donated $1 million towards the development of Ram Rati Gupta Polytechnic, an institution that was formed in 2000. Over the years, this school has changed women’s lives as they have been able to earn their postgraduate degree in about two years. Moreover, the establishment of this school gave life to a technology driven institution that has provided more focus to the success of women in addition to enabling them to stand on their feet and be independent.
Through the use of computers, this institution has empowered many mothers to be able to land technical jobs in the country’s leading corporations. Besides, with the assistance of Vinod Gupta, the school is now in a position to provide textbooks, buses and computer applications. Even with such contributions, Gupta does not forget his roots and how daunting of a task it has been to grow his career into what it is today.
From modest beginnings, Gupta recalls how he lived in a small city in India. Straight from his junior school, he learned the value of money and how it can affect the community. As he grew up, he wanted to be something and perhaps change people’s lives in every way that he could. Having attended a small school in his community, he always wished to move to a land that would offer his greener pastures. Perhaps that is why he worked hard to become one of the few students who made it to the Indian Technological Institute. While in school, he majored in agricultural engineering. After school, he relocated to the United States of America and focused on acquiring a master’s degree in the same course he majored in while at India. This time, he joined University of Nebraska. Until now, Vinod Gupta has seeded millions in many businesses across different sectors.
