    Default Rich status symbols

    First it was cameras, then fine clothes, then fine jewelery, big car, big condo, yatch, condo upgrade into mansion... Then the ultimate would be building your own condo-mansion.

    I think he is a evil person.

    An article i read shows that the area he is in is poverty stricken, devoid of proper sanitation and living in hunger.

    The construction of his building is nothing more than to highlight the richpoor gap in india, which is apparently very huge

    Not that i am jealous of him but I despise such people, so wasteful of earth resources.

    Why is there a need to employ 600 people to serve 6 people ... so sad for him!

    With a fraction of that wealth, he could help many many people in his country.

    well.. he made 600 jobs for the ppl...

    by building that building, he has provided jobs for many construction workers.

    money goes around. the more those rich guys spend, the more money comes back to us.

    Look at it another way..

    he's providing to stimulate the economy... to build such a house, how many ppl had to be employed.. and now 600 are employed JUST in his house... 600 less un-employed ppl...

    Mukesh Ambani, the guy who inherited billions and doubled it with his business acumen. Well, can't blame him for building a private place for himself. He has to move around with bodyguards so he might as well stay at home for leisure activities. Who wouldn't want the best home for themselves and their families? Even if he live in a modest place, the rich poor gap in India remains. However, i do agree that he shouldn't build his palace in an area for the poor.

    who are we to determine how he should spend his money?

    and for all you know he could have donated millions to charity.
