Mukesh Ambani is the richest man in India and he controls 41% of Reliance Industries, he owns the largest oil refinery in the world and he also possesses the biggest natural gas field in India. Not only that he is very rich but he also has huge plans for the Indian technology. In a recent interview he declared that through Reliance he wants to build the first 4G wireless network in India in more than 700 cities.
His fortune is a huge one: $25.2B, not to mention his $500 million house in India and the Mumbai Indians professional cricket team that also belongs to him. Unfortunately his life is not always perfect, in 2013 he started receiving threatening letters and he required government approved security in order to ensure that he and his family will be safe. Even if he is so rich, he has remained a normal person, who prefers street food such as idli-sambar. Ambani takes religion very seriously and this is why he does not drink alcohol at all and he does not eat meat. When he was in college, he dropped out Stanford in order to take care of his father’s yarn operation.
