Gujarat School to Teach about Dhirubhai Ambani


Ahmedabad: Gujarat government is likely to introduce a chapter on Reliance Group founder Dhirubhai Ambani in school textbooks, officials said on Monday.

“Minister of Education (Bhupendrasinh Chudasma) put forth the idea in a recently held meeting attended by the office-bearers of the state textbook board that our children should be taught about lives and struggles of famous personalities, like Dhirubhai Ambani and others,” Gujarat State School Textbook Board (GSSTB) chief Nitin Pethani said.

Later, he said, chapters will be included on the lives of other famous as well as the lesser known personalities who made contribution to society with their work.

“Apart from Dhirubhai Ambani, there are many unknown personalities who had given their best to the society in terms of industrial entrepreneurship, for example Devkaran Nanji, the founder of Dena Bank.
