Top 10 richest people in India

Our elders perpetually shower us with the blessings of better health and wealth, and therefore, their benediction keeps us well and shielded all the time. But, have you ever thought why only the duo is considered the most significant blessing amongst all others? Because better health is for better earning and better wealth is for better living. To put it differently, if we are healthy, then we could probably earn better, and if we are wealthy, our living standards instinctively upgrade. This is the instrument for a better life and future.
Besides, you must have heard people saying that wealth doesn’t count to being happy; love and serve matter the most. Now, let’s keep the philosophy aside as we all know that pinky hai pese walo ki. In this blog, we are going to talk about the top 10 richest people in India and their startups;
