Here is the Details about Him

Schooled in Madras, India; created shop bot Junglee. Sold to Amazon in 1998. Later backed tech outfits Yodlee, 24/7 Customer, Plaxo, Zazzle.com. Bubble era taught him to adapt: "Living in a world where everything is changing constantly, you learn to change." Views self as "Sherpa" investor rather than angel because it makes him feel more like a guide than a checkbook. Early investor, board member of Google. Sold $400 million in Google stock at offering, still owns 3.4 million shares worth $960 million.

Other who surprised me is Amar Gopal Bose who is the CEO of BOSE Inc. which I believe the costliest Music systems in the Market, is known for high-end audio equipment and dedication to research.
