5 (very rich) persons living in a 27 story skyscraper - in Mumbai


India never ceases to surprise. It’s just so weird sometimes. Now this: In Mumbai, which is not exactly Monaco, the owner of one of India's largest Industry conglomerates Reliance, has built a home for his family of 5 persons. It has 27 floors and is supposed to have cost a billion dollars to build. Vanity Fair has photos of the inside – looks more like a hotel than a home to me. Certainly, it's quite a contrast to the rather hardcore slums in other parts of the city. 
When I passed it the other night, it didn’t look like anyone was home.
You stare and wonder.
