This is a guest post from Just A Guy Thing.A $1 billion house is a pretty cool thing to own. If only cause it means you have $1 billion dollars to spend. This monument to self-importance has been up and running since September, but was just recently christened (hindu-ed?) with a housewarming party for 80, which seems like a small number of people to celebrate the opening of a 27-story "house" that will require a staff of 600.
The man behind the house is Mukesh Amban, who is considered to be the richest man in India. The press releases states that the house boasts, in addition to a cinema and other fairly common extravagances, "a lot" of both marble and mother-of-pearl. This fact further supports my theory that, if you don't have a shit ton of mother-of-pearl in your house, you might as well get a tattoo on your forehead that says "poor."
