Dhirubhai Ambani – a Visionary, a Villager and a Business Emperor

Its 28-December. This is the day of which one of the most successful entrepreneurs came on the land of Gujarat. He was so confident and daring that he stood up his empire within the span of six decades. A brilliant, radiant, intelligent business personality is none other than our most admirable Dhirubhai. Yes! He is Dhirubhai Ambani, the founder of Reliance. He was born on 28-Dec-1932 in Chorwad, Gujarat, India.

What is that that made a simple villager a big business tycoon? How does he manage his business? Of course, it’s not my cup of tea. As Dhirubhai did no one can chase him. But, let me share my knowledge of him so that you, an aspiring entrepreneur, can sharpen your skills. It is said that before you go to the field remember to sharpen your sword. If your sword is sharpened, half of your work is done.

This is what Dhirubhai Ambani is. He had his skills and those were sharpened through his vision and insatiable desire. He always said: THINK BIG, THINK FAST.  He was so minute that even a smallest of the mistakes he could find out and didn’t let the opponent have chance to win over him.

I remember his talk in one of the interviews published in Times of India. He was asked why he wanted to have wide and large garden around his home, he answered that he likes big thing. Why to lessen the limits. You see this is how he took his business and let the world know about Reliance. He was just outstanding and had determination and desire. Even at the time of founding the roots of business he was so much careful about his family members. He didn’t let them sacrifice the enjoyment during those hard times. This shows his real genius as a visionary business personality.

On his 85th birth anniversary, let’s pray that still Reliance stands apart in the years to come. And let make this visionary proud by being the entrepreneur.

The world has produced unbelievable persons. And the history of mankind is full of powerful individuals who have always helped the world through their incredible work. Here, I am going to share with you about a person whom we all remember for his undying spirit for his nation.

Yes, I am talking about one and the only Abraham Lincoln. He became the 16th President of the United States. He was one of the greatest heroic persons of America. Abraham Lincoln was ever remembered due to his implausible impact on USA. His story surely inspires millions of people across the globe. He is regarded as an icon for his nation because he had given his best during the U.S Civil War.

Abraham Lincoln was born on 12th February, 1809. Through his study, he became a lawyer. Since his childhood he had seen many ups and downs in his life. At the age of just 9 years, he lost his mother. This was the first unpleasant event happened in his life that made him harder. After this episode, his father remarried to Sarah Bush Johnston. She was a widow and had three children. Soon, she intermingled with new family and Abraham got affection from her like her mother.

Sarah encouraged Abraham Lincoln to learn reading. He thoroughly learned reading for about 18 months. His passion for reading grew so much that he used to walk miles away from his village to nearby book store to borrow a book. He read Robinson Crusoe, Pilgrims Progress, family Bible and others.

At the age of 22, Abraham started earning his living through labor. He had struggled from his childhood till to his later life. During the Black Hawk War in 1832, he was elected as a captain by the volunteers of the United States and Native Americans. This was his first move to political career. In 1834, he officially began his political career when he was elected as a member of the Whig Party.

From 1847 to 1849, Abraham Lincoln offered his service to the U.S. House of Representatives. In 1856, he joined hands with the Republic Party and he became the President. During the Civil War, he provided his remarkable service to the nation and today whole of the world remember him due to it.

At last, it is sad to know that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth on 14th April, 1865. He was such a great personality that even today; we all recall his works for the nation and for people. He really lived his life as an icon of America.
