The article reports that Indian mining magnate Anil Agarwal is facing a tough time in his $1 billion pledge to start a university along the shores of Bay of Bengal in eastern India's Orissa. The grand plan for a 6,000-acre campus looks to Stanford University in California for inspiration. It is stated that Agarwal's plan is under attack on all sides, including land purchases, and his firm Vedanta Resources. His pet cause has always been education, though he didn't make it to college himself.
