why do the rich clamber for public scholariship?
i know scholarship is meant to be awarded to the creme de cream but why are the rich who could afford it for their elite bright kids still wanna compete against lesser well-off peasants who have bright scholarly kids but may not have the resources to excel them to the fullest?
is this greed? or is it fame and more elitism showoff they are aftering for?
if dr. allan ooi hadn't taken the scholarship, would he still be alive today? his family could afford it. why took it and then made himself unhappy and maybe caused the abrupt end to a life which was full of hopes and promises?
