Dhirubhai Ambani, silently adores the faces of your mail (Stamp etc) today,
From novice to most wise; he was the cause of mail box’s load yesterday, (maximum Number of Shareholders & Plethora of frequent debenture schemes)
Who had pioneered the cult of equity and ‘New’ debenture instruments,
Dhirubhai not only set the tone of driving People, to facilitate their presence,
on the cover page of his annual reports, and his dreams to become numero-uno one day!

Indeed he was A Guru of financial engineering, of entovation, and of marketing as one may say!

It is simplistically illustrated in the bollywood movie Guru…

Dhirubhai Ambani
Dhirajlal Hirachand Ambani (1932-2002) was born into the family of a schoolteacher. It was a family of modest means. When he turned 16, Dhirubhai moved to Aden, working first as a gas-station attendant, then as a clerk in an oil company.

He returned to India at 26, starting a business with a meagre capital of $375. By the time of his demise, his company - Reliance Industries Ltd - had grown to become an empire, with an estimated annual turnover of $12 billion!

Dhirubhai was, in his lifetime, conferred the Indian Entrepreneur of the 20th Century Award by the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry. A Times of India poll in the year 2000 also voted him one of the biggest creators of wealth in this century.

Dhirubhai’s is not just the usual rags-to-riches story. He will be remembered as the one who rewrote Indian corporate history and built a truly global corporate group. He is also credited with having single-handedly breathed life into the Indian stock markets and bringing in thousands of investors to the bourses.
