Adani group overtakes Tatas in market cap. Gautam Adani now world's 2nd richest🤑
Indian industrialist Gautam Adani briefly became the world's second-richest person on the Forbes real-time billionaire tracker on Friday, weeks after becoming the first Asian to break into the top three.
The self-made billionaire's net worth surged $4 billion overnight to $154 billion, according to Forbes, ranking him ahead of LVMH's Bernard Arnault and Amazon's Jeff Bezos.
Adani, 60, made his fortune in ports and commodities trading and now operates India's second-largest conglomerate with interests ranging from coal mining and edible oils to airports and news media.
Analyst estimates indicated the market capitalisation of Adani's seven listed companies also briefly overtook those of the Tata group on Friday morning, making the Adani Group India's largest conglomerate.

TCS struggles to get millennials back to offices👩🏻💻
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is grappling with the continued unwillingness of the majority of its millennial employees to return to the workplace. The company is keen to end the work-from-home arrangement which was put in place in the wake of the outbreak of the pandemic in early 2020.
Fewer than 20% of TCS employees have returned to offices, according to people aware of the matter, although the company has sought to woo the workforce with nostalgic office pictures on its social media handles.
Millennials, who form 70% of the TCS workforce, had returned to their hometowns to save on travel and residential costs amid the pandemic. Now, they are questioning the logic of postponing the hybrid work plan to 2025 instead of implementing it immediately, said the people.
