Dhirajlal Hirachand Ambani, popularly known as Dhirubhai Ambani, was born to Hirachand Ambani (a teacher at Chorwad of Junagadh district, Gujarat) and his wife, Jamnaben, on December 28, 1932. Dhirubhai started his career at the mere age of 17, and fast forward to today, he is still recalled even after his demise as one of the greatest industrialists in India. Coming to his personal life, he and his ladylove, Kokilaben Ambani have given birth to two sons, Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani and two daughters, Deepti Salgaocar and Nina Kothari.
Talking about the two business tycoons of India, Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani, the brothers-duo have taken forward their father's legacy and have also managed to make a name for themselves. The two brothers along with their wives and kids, were living a happy life with their parents until July 6, 2002, when Dhirubhai Ambani left for the heavenly abode. Since then, Dhirubhai's family members have treasured him in their hearts forever and never miss a chance to pay tribute to him.
On Dhirubhai Ambani's 79th birthday, his family inaugurated their old house in Chorwad, Gujarat, as his memorial, and glimpses from the same are simply unmissable. In an unseen video posted by a fan page, we can see the entire family with other odd members were present at the event. We can see glimpses of Kokilaben Ambani, Deepti Salgaocar, Nina Kothari, Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani, Anil Ambani, and Tina Ambani, along with their kids, Akash Ambani, and Isha Ambani, among others.

The Dhirubhai Ambani Memorial was inaugurated on December 28, 2011, in Chorwad town in the Junagadh district. During the inauguration event, the Ambani family's guru, Ramesh Oza (Bhaiji), was also present to guide them. They were also seen doing a havan puja on that day. For the unversed, the memorial is the same place where the founder of Reliance Group Industries had spent his childhood. A rented section of the bungalow was then called Mangarolwalo Delo. Afterwards, in 2002, Dhirubhai had purchased the bungalow and renamed it, Dhirubhaino Delo.
Earlier, there was a feud created between the two brothers, Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani. However, with time, they have resolved the dispute and have become each other's strengths. For instance, in 2019, Anil was given a deadline to pay his dues of around Rs 460 crores to RCom's operational creditor, Ericsson. It was then his brother, Mukesh, who came forward to help him. Mukesh paid Anil's dues from his personal wealth, and Anil was touched by this gesture of his brother. In a statement from Reliance Communications, Anil had said:
“My sincere and heartfelt thanks to my respected elder brother, Mukesh, and Nita, for standing by me during these trying times, and demonstrating the importance of staying true to our strong family values by extending this timely support. I and my family are grateful we have moved beyond the past, and are deeply grateful and touched with this gesture."
For the unversed, the Dhirubhai Ambani Memorial inauguration ceremony was a family reunion in Chorwad after a hiatus of 15 years. Before this, they had visited the place in 1996 when the family organised a grand feast for the villagers.
