“Pappa was an institution in himself. He was an icon, a visionary, and a business leader par excellence, but at his core, Pappa was a loving teacher. Just being in his presence, watching his grit and determination in everything he did, was a masterclass on life! He always believed in me and encouraged me to follow my dreams. I remember 7:30 pm every evening used to be my time with Pappa! He would sit with me and ask me questions. The topic could be anything!”

Nita Ambani shares she was overwhelmed by Dhirubhai's quiz session

Further, talking about their daily quiz round, Nita Ambani shared that the topics were extremely wide and she would reach out to her husband, Mukesh, to find out what Pappa might ask. However, that didn't help her as Dhirubhai would find out new topics to quiz her on. Though initially, it was an overwhelming experience for her, now she looks at it as learning and motivation. Recalling her bond with Dhirubhai, she said:

“It would range from agriculture to the stock market to the political climate in Argentina in those days. Many times, I would try to find out from Mukesh what Pappa might ask me the next day! Of course, that didn’t help, as Pappa would always find new topics to quiz me on. Though at that time it was overwhelming for a young bride – But now I look back at it as the hour of learning and motivation! He broadened my horizons, taught me that nothing is impossible if you chase your dreams with discipline and hard work, and showed me the value of respecting and nurturing relationships."
