So many hats - Nita Ambani

Geetanjali Shukla        Print Edition: September 18, 2011

A day in the life of Nita Ambani, Reliance Industries' first lady, includes attending to the needs of her family; mandatory Bharatnatyam practice; ensuring there are no hiccups at the Dhirubhai Ambani International School of which she is Chairperson; keeping abreast of all cricket-related developments, since she is co-owner of the Indian Premier League team Mumbai Indians; and most of all, checking on work progress at her dream projects, the H.N. Hospital and Reliance University, both in Mumbai.

"The hospital will provide quality healthcare at affordable rates," she says. "The university will offer educational and research opportunities comparable to the best in the world." She attributes her passion for education to her middle-class family background.
