Dhirubhai Hirachand Ambani

18-12-1932 – 06-07-2002

Late Sri Dhirubhai Ambani was among the very few people in India who think big. Born in a middle class family, he aimed very high and realized very big dreams with this great vision. It is very hard to find successful examples like Dhirubhai in India; just recently we have started seeing the successful individual achievers and entrepreneurs after the advent of IT in our country. All the successful industrialists today have born with a silver, golden or even platinum spoon and they belong to third or fourth generation in the inheritance chain. But Dhirubhai is the only example who has built everything on his own without any inheritance. He didn’t have any IIT or IIM degree to back him up and for that matter not even a full formal education. He was the man of pure guts and spending vision, he worked with his observation & instincts. After his death now his sons Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani and working hard to take his dream forward and entering into the diverse fields through Reliance Life Science, Reliance Infocomm & Reliance Entertainment to name the few. Reliance Infocomm is one such ‘big dream’ and Reliance dreams to become one of the top 10 telecom companies in the world. Dhirubhai is not just name to be remembered as a great successful example of an Indian industrialist. He is ‘hope’ for all the budding entrepreneurs in this country and example of a person who truly understood the meaning of VISION.
