Asia’s richest man and the 13th richest on earth — Mukesh Ambani — celebrates his birthday today and Twitterati don’t fail to rise up to the occasion. The micro-blogging platform is now flooding with birthday wishes for the man, with some sharing quotes and others sharing old pictures of the Ambani family.

The Reliance Industries chairman, who was recently featured in TIME’s 100 most influential people, has a worth of $54 billion. The Jio founder also featured in the Forbes billionaires’ list, becoming the 13th richest person on the planet. The man shares the feat with Amazon fame Jeff Bezos, Microsoft’s Bill Gates and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg among others, outshining the likes of Alibaba’s Jack Ma and Tesla’s Elon Musk.

Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio is accredited with bringing disruption in the telecom sector. With Jio’s 2016 entry in India’s telecom industry, it brought an unprecedented revolution in the way users accessed internet. His TIME profile highlights the same thing and hints at the potential that Jio holds for the future of Reliance Industries. “What is truly jaw-dropping is the way Jio will allow Reliance to potentially dominate a staggering array of new businesses. When its enormous retail division is married to the Jio network for e-commerce, it will give Amazon a run for its money,” Anand Mahindra of Mahindra and Mahindra group, said in his TIME profile for Mukesh Ambani.

Now, Mukesh Ambani plans to take on e-commerce behemoths Amazon and Flipkart with his own e-commerce site. The recent FDI policy change further helps his cause.

Happy birthday greetings to Mukesh Ambani ji
