Born on December 28, 1932, Dhirajlal Hirachand Ambani, known as Dhirubhai Ambani, has a significant role in the love and respect that the 'Ambani family' receives today. With his vision to Reliance Industries, Mr Ambani’s inspirational journey from rags to riches was all about hard work and struggle. Late Dhirubhai Ambani was ranked by Forbes as the world’s 138th-richest person, with an estimated net worth of $2.9 billion. With a mention of Ambani family, Kokilaben Ambani, Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani, Anil Ambani, Tina Ambani, Akash Ambani, Isha Ambani Piramal, Anant Ambani, Jai Anmol Ambani and Jai Anshul Ambani come to our mind and the ‘Hum Saath Saath Hai’ vibes they exude!

Time and again, every Ambani family member has spoken about how much they miss the presence of Dhirubhai Ambani in their life. Tina Ambani too, leaves no chance to express the relationship she had with her father-in-law. On the death anniversary of Dhirubhai Ambani, Tina had posted a picture of him with a note that could be read as “Thinking of you today, Pappa. Your wisdom and insight are needed more than ever today. I can visualize you brimming with ideas, your mind working overtime with thoughts, recommendations, solutions to combat the economic challenges we face as a society, as a country, indeed worldwide. The world is in short supply of karmayogis, and we miss you today, every day, always. Indeed, you are irreplaceable, and your light is eternal.”
To mark the 88th birth anniversary of Dhirubhai Ambani, Tina Ambani posted a picture with him and one with her husband, Anil Ambani and her father-in-law in the frame. Revealing what her father-in-law had taught them, Tina wrote in her caption, “There was, is and will be no one like you Pappa. You brought out the best in each one of us and taught us how to broaden our horizons. While we miss you immensely, you remain part of our being, guiding and watching over us, lighting our path and reminding us each day of the possibilities life holds. Happy birthday.”
