Information about one of the greatest sons of Gujarat and founder of Reliance Group Shri Dhirubhai Ambani’s ancestral house will be available on tips of fingers. A website (www.dhirubhaiambanimemorialchorwad.com) about Dhirubhai Ambani Memorial House at Chorwad was launched at New Delhi. The website contains the pictures of the ancestral house of Dhirubhai Ambani, chronology of Dhirubhai Ambani’s life, historical information about Chorwad, development works carried out by Reliance Industries Ltd in Chorwad among other details. The website will provide much needed information about famous places around Chorwad to the visitors.
Spread in an area of one acre, the memorial houses a photo gallery with archives of photographs showcasing Dhirubhai’s life journey, which has already become a part of business folklore. A part of the house is being renovated in such a way that its original structure remains intact. The other part is being converted into a museum.
“The building has been renovated at an estimated cost of Rs 4-5 crore. There is a small theatre for showcasing a documentary made on the life of Dhirubhai. Kokilaben has been personally monitoring the entire process as this project has been close to her heart,” said Divyesh Pathak, a local community leader based in Chorwad.
