He is really a sterling personality who showed to the people anything can be achieved by proper planning and hard work. He is the legendary Hero for India. He is the man who never took rest in his life. He continued the race without any exertion and was always tried to be a champion in any field that he had chosen. He was not for medals or awards. He wanted to be an exemplary Industrialist and worked hard. The rest of the things followed him automatically.

His untiring personality is a great lesson for all Indian Youth.

Late Sri Dhirajlal Ambani never wanted to be aloof in a corner even after 60 years of Age. His inspiring personality made many enthusiasts to start their own Industry and work hard . But, only a few could succeeded.

What we learn from his life story is that  a Champion is one who continues the race where everyone becomes tired and stops the race.

It is a great article about Dhirubhai Ambani. He is always a great inspiration for entrepreneurs around the world and it is pure hard work and dedication. Also, he was business-minded from the young age which helped him to achieve his goals in life. So many successful companies still blistering the name of the legend like him.

I admire Dhirubhai and his perspective towards the business. His struggles and the efforts definitely helped many of us understand how hard it is to manage the business. And this also leads to the point where you can see that working on job is lot easier than building an empire. You’d find that personality such as him show us the strength it is required to be strong business person. And his way of doing things tell you how hard it is for making money. I wish to be like him someday.

Thanks for appreciating the article. He is one the pioneers in the 20th century private sector of India. His company had to be built during tough economic times and it is not a easy task to achieve the name and fame he achieved. It would have been better if the business group would have been a single entity as the company would have more resources and the group would have grown bigger and bigger.

 

There are many other successful Indian businessmen who have made a mark in India and abroad in their respective businesses. But not many have been able to match what the Reliance Group could achieve. It is heartening that he is a role model for many youngsters who would also want to be like late  Dhirubhai through hard, dedication and application of ones business acumen.

Good to know that you feel inspired by the personality of late Dhirubhai Ambani. I feel many of the Indians look up to him as a good role model. The key for that being he was successful in his business ventures after facing a lot of hurdles in life. That way many other also would have faced hurdles but the level of what he could achieve is quite astounding that too in difficult times as the economy was not opened up at that period of the time.

Globalization  and other concepts were yet to set into the Indian economy fully. He is a inspiration for many aspiring to do well in life in different spheres. There were others who were already well established in their businesses and they gave him a tough competition. But he knew the mantra of success and application of his business acumen which he exploited to the fullest potential. Best wishes on your planning to become like him.

I think his skill of building one business after another. And making each one successful is something we all need to learn. It’s not easy to get one business model running that easily. I am impressed with his ability to do something in industry, he had no idea about. And the way he diversified. That is in itself makes you wonder how such personality can change things. Another personality that I find impressive is the leader from the future bazaar group. The way he struggled and developed the brand also makes you wonder about the business.

@Mahesh

Agree with you building one business after another and making it successful is not a easy task for any one. These great businessmen have the idea to quickly grasp the business with they get into and are able to go with the flow of the business.  All said and done these are not easy things unless one has business acumen. Only such people are able to achieve great things in business. I am not aware of the leader Future Bazar group. I have to check about him and write an article about him business style is interesting too. I have to check and read about him. Thanks for the information.

There are many such leaders. I think leader of future bazaar group who formed the big bazaar, pantaloons and few other brands makes him similar to ambani. Only difference is that he has yet to get into the multiple markets. So far he is into retail chains and E commerce. So that is why he’s not much popular. I had his book. I forgot his name though but you can google him. Lot of startup leaders who we can get inspiration from these days.

Thanks for the feed back. I will try to check about some other personalities who in the Indian context have made the difficult or impossible seem possible due to their business acumen and tenacity. I will see the most interesting ones and try to write about these business people. Best wishes.
