Raj Rajaratnam

Seen here is the arrest of the portly Raj Rajaratnam, the billionaire partner of Galleon Group, aka “The Hedge Fund Hog,” accused of insider trading. He’s thrown down $$$ to South Asian organizations in NYC, some of which I’ve been affiliated with, including South Asian Youth Action and American India Foundation.

Yikes!

In Loiz Peltz’s 2001 book “The New Investment Superstars,” Rajaratnam says:

“It is pride, and I want to win. After awhile, money is not the motivation. I want to win every time. Taking calculated risks gets my adrenaline pumping.”

Gym Raja

He shoulda tried this instead:
