India’s Goldplus Nano Car Doesn’t Feed Starving Children but Who Cares? It Looks Cool.

It’s a tale of two extremes. From the country that brought the world Slum Dog millionaire now comes the world’s first fully functional automobile made of solid gold encrusted with jewels.

The $4.6 million Goldplus Nano Car was unveiled in Mumbai, India on Monday. The blingmobile boasts exquisite craftsmanship using 80kg of 22 carat solid gold, 15kg of silver and precious stones including diamonds and rubies.

A few blocks away in the Dharavi slums of Mumbai, India, another poverty stricken child died of starvation in the streets.

Goldplus Nano Car The Goldplus Nano Car (pictured left) is fully functional but it isn’t for sale. The vehicle was constructed as a unique branding and promotional initiative by India’s Goldplus Jewellery, part of Titan Industries, a Tata Group company.

The Goldplus Nano Car is being billed as the world’s first ever gold jewelery car and it was built to commemorate 5000 years of jewelery making industry in India.

Starving Children India According to a survey by the Indian Health Ministry in 2007, India has higher rates of malnourished children than many places in Africa. Almost 46 percent of children under the age of 3 suffer from some sort of malnutrition in India.

Despite India having sufficient funds to tackle the problem, it seems the wealthy in India would rather spend their money distancing themselves from the problem of feeding their starving children.

We’ve all seen the commercials about sponsoring a starving child for as little as $1 per day. At $4.6 million for Goldplus Nano Car, that’s 4.6 million days only one poor starving child could be fed or the cost could feed 13,000+ starving children for 1 year.

Seeing as Tata Group chairman Ratan Tata only cares about feeding his ego and doesn’t care about feeding starving children, anyone with a heart and a sense of decency, please click here to sponsor a starving child in India or support an end to world hunger by clicking the banner below.

A steak lunch at Smith & Wollensky in Manhattan with legendary investor Warren Buffett was auctioned on eBay for $2.63 Million. Can you imagine the eBay Final Value fees on this one?

Warren Buffett

As CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, Warren Buffett is famed for his strikingly successful investment strategies and is as well known for his personal integrity as his business savvy. Who knew Mr. Buffett would be such an expensive lunch date?

A total of two bidders were up to the pricetag and entered eight bids in the eBay auction, which started last Sunday.

The staggering final bid was actually for just under $2.35 million, but the anonymous winner added to that after the auction to surpass last year’s winning bid of $2,626,411 by $111, organizers said.

Interest in this year’s auction was much lower than in 2010, when nine bidders made a total of 77 bids for the luncheon.

100% of the final sale price goes to support the Glide Foundation
