Do you know him- the worlds richest person

With the Mumbai Sensex crossing 20000 level yesterday, Mukesh Ambani for the time being is the richest person in the world.

Billionaire Mukesh Ambani on Monday became the richest person in the world, surpassing American software czar Bill Gates, Mexican business tycoon Carlos Slim Helu and famous investment guru Warren Buffett, courtesy the bull run in the stock market.

Following a strong share price rally today in his three group companies - India's most valued firm Reliance Industries , Reliance Petroleum and Reliance Industrial Infrastructure Ltd - the net worth of Mukesh Ambani rose to $63.2 billion (Rs 2,49,108 crore).

In comparison, the net worth of both Gates and Slim is estimated to be slightly lower at around $62.29 billion each, with Slim leading among the two by a narrow margin.

The richest person is the one who can best live within his means ;-)

Otherwise, big congratulation for all the progress the nation of India has been achieving in recent years and decades. I am working in IT and together with many coworkers from India and I am very impressed by their know-how and professionalism.



Isn’t it an irony that top richest people (Ambani, Slim and Mittal) have started to come from developing (also know as "undeveloped" in developed nations ) countries?
The only problem is in these countries the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. The divide is increasing alarmingly to cause a chaos, unless the so called richest start sharing their wealth through some effective channel (like the foundation setup by Gates and huge donations by Buffet) and not for some tax shelters.
Congrats, keep getting rich Mr. Ambani but give it back some to who really need it.

May be our Mukesh Bhai have to wait somewhat longer or have to shake hand with Anil bhai to get closer.
