One doesnt normally think of government offices as "exclusive" in the way you are conveying. I think you may be projecting a bit here.
Then you don't know anything about exclusiveness. Understandable.

I have a hard time believing a house can be worth 2 billion (Dollars?). An estate, with all its endowments, maybe. But not a physical house with its outbuildings and hardscaping. A little exaggeration.(gives color to this thread though, dont you think?)

Mukesh Ambani's $2 billion house, Antilia, on Altamount Road, that's rated the most expensive house in the world, is tasteful in most aspects.

To rival Antilia, another industrialist, Gautam Singhania, is building a $1.5 billion house on Mumbai's high profile Breach Candy and Mukesh Ambani's brother, Anil Ambani, is constructing a $ 1 billion house in trendy Bandra in suburban Mumbai.

If he were born and grew up in England then you have a point. The fact he lived for 13-14 years doesn't imply he spoke a Brit English.

If that is your reason why he spoke a Brit English, then you are left with nothing to prove you're right.

Besides he lived for many years in Manchester and in poverty. Assuming for absurd he got a Brit English then he got a Manchester accent of the working class. Manchester accent is very bad, let alone the working class'.

There are so many foreigners in Europe that came here when they were children and after many years they still speak European language(s) with their foreign accent.

I've seen the same thing in U.S.

Anyway he's on the record to have spoken English with a marked Indian accent.

According to wiki, value of the property is inflated by the market and not by the capital improvements.

In other words, if you buy into the hype, it is worth 2 Billion. If you use real appraisal methods, probably not.

According to this- the only metro area more expensive than our county is San Francisco.

http://blog.ctnews.com/propertyrounds/2014/04...

Million dollar homes make up less than 2 percent of the market in 44 of the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas, according to a new analysis released last month by Trulia. But here in Fairfield County, Connecticut, the rate is 15 times higher, making the area one of Trulia’s top million-dollar metros in the area.

In total, 29.7 percent of Fairfield County listings on the real estate website are priced at or above $1 million, the analysis states.

The Frisbie Baking company (1871-1958) of Bridgeport, Connecticut, made pies that were sold to many New England colleges. Hungry college students soon discovered that the empty pie tins could be tossed and caught, providing endless hours of game and sport.
A Los Angeles building inspector named Walter Frederick Morrison produced a plastic Frisbie called the Pluto Platter, which went on to become the frisbee we know today.

I like to give things their right dimension.

First it's not a house but a residential complex with over 27 floors. The cost to build that residential complex was around $77 million (I presume dollars) in 2010.

Nowadays the land over that complex has increased and according to some speculation the value of that building arrived close to US$ 2 billions.

From the age.com .au 15 Oct 2010 (the year when the residential building was completed)
"While the home cost about $77 million to build, Mumbai's growing property prices means Antilia is now estimated to be worth 15 times more - about $1 billion."

From Newyorktimes: 15 Jun 2008
"(Although the price tag for the residence has drawn estimates as high as $2 billion, a Reliance spokesman said it would ultimately cost $50 million to $70 million.)"

Our house would be 4 times the value (at least) in G'ch. Maybe 5 times.

A million dollar house in G'ch is not a special house at all. You need to go more a like 1 1/2 for an average-looking house. My friends mom just sold her house in Riverside - nothing special - an immediate tear-down. 1.6 + million (but great location near Riverside School)

TO JOEL

The NYTIMES' article that speaks about Ambani, at one point spend a few words about you or the character you portray yourself, here.

I'll report what it says:

"For generations, Altamount was a favored address for India’s Anglicized elite, a group British imperialists groomed in their own image. To a 19th-century British official, Thomas Babington Macaulay, they were “interpreters between us and the millions whom we govern; a class of persons, Indian in blood and color, but English in taste, in opinions, in morals and in intellect.”

As time went on, the elites were steeped in British culture, spoke with Oxbridge accents, pooh-poohed Bollywood films and danced only to British and American music. They dismissed those who spoke Indian languages at home as “vernies,” short for “vernaculars.”

Then, in the 1990s, Bombay changed its name to Mumbai, and Altamount was renamed S. K. Barodawalla Marg. Neither name has stuck with everyone, but the changes were part of an emerging movement to purge India of its colonial legacy.

Such changes accompanied the rise to power of a new class of Indians who want to live and work and raise their children in India, who are tethered to Indian values, food and popular culture and who are unapologetic about their indigenous tastes. The Ambanis are this class’s first family.
