Following above, read motivational story of Nita Ambani
It is often said that behind every successful man, there is a woman. But one needs to ponder – what about a successful woman? Well, behind every successful woman is she herself, with faith in her ability to do wonders, with confidence, diligence and meticulous efforts.
Nita Ambani is one such woman. For a long time, she was known as Mukesh Ambani’s wife – the richest Indian’s wife. It is only recently that she has come into her own – and it was her personal decision, in the sense that she wanted to let her work talk for itself and for herself too. She never believed in boasting about her work or in making a show out of it. She understood the importance and the legacy of the prestigious Ambani family name, quite early in her life.
She grew up in the suburbs of Mumbai and hails from a middle-class family.Her father was a senior executive in Birla.Nita Ambani is mother of three Children. She is a commerce graduate from NarseeMonjee College of Commerce and Economics.
Nita Ambani’s achievements are diverse and varied – she established the Dhirubhai Ambani International School and is presently its chairperson, she is the head of the Dhirubhai Ambani Foundation – a charitable organisation, which aims at provision of education and medical care facilities to the under-privileged population of the country. Interestingly, she also owns the IPL cricket team – Mumbai Indians and enthusiastically supports its cricket players through all the matches.
What motivates us the most about Nita Ambani’s life is that despite belonging to the richest family in India, she is a humble human being – she never intended to claim the limelight for superfluous activities such as social gatherings or high-end celebrations. She believed in making real efforts which bore fruit ultimately.
Also, being the wife of the richest Indian, she could have easily sat on the fence and did nothing. But she realised the importance of carrying forward the family legacy and actively worked towards integrating herself with the corporate, education and healthcare sectors. Her success has been phenomenal. She stands testimony to the old adage that a duck appears to be calmly skimming on the surface of water, but beneath, it is paddling very hard and tirelessly to be able to float on water in a smooth manner.
Recently, Nita Ambani joined the Board of Reliance Industries. She is the only woman member in the board – another inspiration for the women of our country – by proving that women are equitable to men in every respect. Her appointment heralds her as MukeshAmbani’s successor to the Reliance family. Importantly, it is remarkable to note that this success has not come overnight – Nita Ambani has had to work hard and long to achieve this position.
