Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani said that he wished he had the infectious enthusiasm of today’s youth in his earlier years.
Reliance Industries Chairman Mukesh Ambani said that he if he could be back to being a 25-year-old again and have the same infectious enthusiasm of today’s youth, his company would be 10 times bigger than it is currently.
Speaking on the sidelines of the India Today Conclave, Ambani said that he finds today’s young generation to be hugely aspirational and have a “nothing is impossible” attitude.
“What strikes me is that they are wanting to challenge conventional wisdom, a trait that was earlier limited only to visionaries,” he said. “Unlike my generation, they are finding and solving problems rather than complaining. This is the new India.”
Ambani said he doesn’t devote time to reading quarterly results and financial reports and was a believer in putting in the best effort.
He said that he would have been a teacher had his father Dhirubhai Ambani not urged him to get into business, adding that he and wife Nita were exploring getting into the education sector.
At the conclave, Ambani delivered the keynote address on ‘Why Technology Will Change India – The 21st Century Optimist’.
He told youngsters to follow their dreams, as money is only a by-product of passion.
