Are there any poor people on Quora?

Fascinating !! Are there any poor people on Quora? by Panshak Solomon

Answer by Panshak Solomon:

This is my room back in 2015, before joining Quora.

My Wardrobe

My Laptop and my Table

My Bed


My Kitchen, just right beside my TV.

When I discovered Quora, it was as if the flood gate of wisdom suddenly opened. So many intelligent people here and so many things to learn. Every day I find myself browsing Quora, learning new things. I started putting my brain into good use. I browse Facebook less frequently. I’ve been passionate about Graphic Design, so I decided to work towards improving my Design skills.

Today, my situation have slightly improved, though not much but definitely not as it used to be, and I am improving everyday.

This is my room presently. I took these pictures today. 3/05/2017.

My Wardrobe.

So to answer your question, there are poor people on Quora. But we are optimistic of the future.


Wow! this is unbelievable.

I never imagined my answer will generate this massive attention in less than 24 hours. I’m highly encouraged by all your comments and upvotes.

I'm highly honored by all your comments. You guys are really amazing. Thanks for all the motivation and encouragement.

And as some people rightly said, that poverty is a thing of the mind, I quite agree with this. I've changed my credentials from “being poor all through my life” to “I have tasted poverty” because I believe that the future will be far greater than the past. 2016 has been one of the greatest year of my life. That's the year I can actually say I've started doing something tangible with my life. Most of my success can only be attributed to what I learned here on Quora.

Of course the transition between the pictures I posted above may seem just small, but only I personally know how big the difference is, between who I used to be and who I am today.

I will forever remain grateful to Quora.
