NRI BILLIONAIRE steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal received a lifetime achievement award here last night - but was quick to point out he is far from elderly.

Mr Mittal, chairman and chief executive of ArcelorMittal, on Monday night accepted the Malcolm S. Forbes Lifetime Achievement Award from publishing tycoon Steve Forbes, chairman and CEO of Forbes, at a ceremony in the Shangri-La Hotel.
