Hailing from modest means, he followed his dream to create India's largest company. Reliance as an organisation has adopted this ethos of converting adversity into opportunity and making the impossible possible by challenging conventional wisdom.
The ultimate aim has always been – and will always be – to touch the lives of people in a positive way.
