43 Famous Quotes By Dhirubhai Ambani That Will Shed Light Onto A Different Side Of His Personality
Dhirubahi Ambani is a name every Indian reckons. He is the epitome of rags to riches story.Initially a yarn trader Ambani went on to revolutionize the telecommunications scenario in the country. Reliance Industries was named among the top Fortune 500 companies in terms of revenue.
One time the business tycoon was attending a Navratri celebration, where a classical dancer Nita (who would later become his daughter in law) was performing. Dhirubhai was impressed by her performance and gave her a call the next day. Nita who was unaware of this disconnected the call saying 'Wrong Number' when the person on the other side introduced himself as Dhirubhai Ambani. He called a second time and said "I'm Dhirubhai Ambani, may I talk to Nita?" Thinking someone was prank calling her she replied, "If you are Dhirubhai Ambani, I'm Elizabeth Taylor!" and disconnected. The third time around Nita's dad received the call and he was initially perplexed but gathered his wits and said, "Nita pick up the phone and talk and talk nicely and politely because it is Dhirubhai Ambani!!" A flummoxed Nita took the receiver and greeted him, in traditional Gujarati style, saying ‘Jayashree Krishna’.
