Thumbs up World's Richest Man is now EDIT NOT an Indian !!!

Mukesh Ambani it is, now worth $63.2 billion .
Bill Gates & Carlos Slim are around $62.29 billion, thats a lead of over $900 million !!

Mukesh Ambani becomes the world's richest man

RIL has released clarification that Mukesh is not the richest man
Mukesh Ambani not world's richest man, says Reliance-India Business-Business-The Times of India

I'm not sure about the exact lead Mukesh Ambani has over the Gates/Slim. Slim being in 2nd place is just a wee bit richer than Gates.

Either ways,this is quite an impressive standing! Way to go!!
