India’s only trillionaire - Mukesh Ambani

Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani has more than Rs 1,00,000 crore of wealth through his shareholdings
Now, just how big is a trillion? For those who are blasé about figures, writer Bill Bryson has a useful perspective. In his book Notes From a Big Country, he writes: “If you were locked in a vault and you could keep every dollar bill you initialled, (we’re assuming that you initial one bill every second and that you don’t need to eat, sleep or take comfort breaks) do you know how long it would take you to make a million dollars?”

It would take you 31,709.8 years to get to your first trillion.

In March, Forbes estimated Mukesh’s stakes at $20.1 billion
