    In the recently released Forbes 2016 list of India’s wealthiest men, Indian businessman Cyrus Poonawalla holds the 9th position with a net worth of over 8 Billion USD. While many other Indians have made it to the list, including Reliance Industries owner, Mukesh Ambani, the fact that a horse breeder made it to the richest men’s list is quite an achievement.
    The 74-year-old patriarch is the proud owner of the Poonawalla Group of Industries that also includes the Biotech company called Serum Institute of India. Specializing in manufacturing paediatric vaccines, the company is said to produce over one billion doses of vaccines for various diseases ranging right from the common flu to measles.
    Poonawalla started his career with stud farms in the year 1946 with several race horses which over the years have won many world records. It was an unplanned meeting with a veterinary doctor that led Poonawalla into the business of vaccines. He soon decided to extract serum from horses and produce vaccines on a large scale. Eventually, he formed the company in the year 1966, and the rest as they say is history.
    Having achieved a major breakthrough in the 80’s by supplying vaccines to the UN, there was no looking back for Cyrus from then on. Now the owning a wealth of a whopping $8.6 Billions, Cyrus lives his life quite lavishly without a doubt.
    Right from owning a collection of luxurious cars to a massive mansion, the lifestyle of this wealthy horse breeder is truly inspirational. Don’t believe us? Take a look and find out for yourself!
