Mark Zuckerberg, the youngest billionaire of the world, is not at all perfect. Rather, he has a very serious problem that he is colour blind. He can see very few colours. He was never able to see the red and the green colour. The only colour he can see to a large extent is the blue colour. This is one of the major reasons why Facebook is blue in colour. A gifted child he is, definitely, but he has used his talent in such a right direction that today the whole world has become a great fan of this guy.

The ring was nice one with a ruby in the middle and two diamonds on the left and the right.
