  1. YES, The Business is always richer than jobs (service) so every people shall not become richest and every people will not be similar for anything; this is the rule of nature….!

  2. hi thanks for the mail priya. i know 5 of them.
    i am still struggling harder to get paid from online service. So i will be pleased if you share me ideas and guidelines or procedure. take care bye.
    yours, willson

  3. Thank u priya i know 9 of them . It is true that they are Indians either they are inside or outside the country. When you say there is a village, it means there is a city. Like that when you say poor people are there, then there should be rich people also. Ambani’s oil port is at the entrance to Gulf of kachchh,(that leads to kandla port) near sikka, very close to Karachi,Pakistan. It is well guarded. Now a days it is very difficult to know who is our neighbours. It is difficult to know all these things unless one has pure interest. Good work, Regards

  4. thank u PRIYA, i don’t know about kushal singh but i know about his company, as well as shashi and ravi ruia owners of essar group but i know about essar company, and about gautam adani also. remaining people are well known by me. well thanks for this information.

  5. Recently I read a article in news paper the liability ( Loan) of some big shots/industries increased by 25%
    What is the net worth of these shots ?
    Whether this rich figures pave the way to live a simple life told by the father of Nation
    One day every body say good bye -leave with empty hand,only with your KARMA you did here for the next birth !!!
    Patha nahi thab thu Raja ya Rank banega!!!

  6. Thanks for this information , observe that they all are graduate in arts and science means every graduate person have to chance become a rich person… there is a one very positive sentence i read in recently…
    you are born to poor …………its not your faults.
    but you are dead as a poor ………… its your foults

    thanks once again priya

  7. What we do about richest people of our country. Most of them trying to control our Govt. system by their money power. Most of the business men and industrialist do that for their own interest and keep pressure on Govt. Machinery. They are having their own network to do this. Many Sakari Babus just work like their pet dogs.

    Because as a Indian there first duty to look their COUNTRY.
