well i applaud ambani’s achievement making it to the top of the world. well someone was supposed to surpass bill gates eventually since he is retiring from his position. he started the process of retiring in 2005 and is bound to be complete by end 2007.
the real question now arises is taht is he a philanthropist like bill gates. cuz bill gates made soo many donations. last year he made quite donations of $5 billion. well if he still manages to be on top of the world even after donating so much, i gotta say he got steel balls.

anyways let see how long he holds on to this position and if he could ever beat bill gates wealth from 1999 where he passed the $100 billion dollar mark.
