Social media makes me hate humanity - like HATE. When you mock someone for their weight, looks, facial expressions, speech, colour of the skin, among a ton of other things, you show the poor upbringing you had and the shallow person that you are. #Anant#Ambani- Shailja (@lykabrd) January 3, 2018
Anant Ambani is undoubtedly an achiever and inspiration to many! Downsizing and Rightsizing are important skills to master in business & he is the leader of leaders who 'lead by example'. Oratory skills are 2ndary & can be acquired/improved :)- Rags (@RagsTweets) January 3, 2018
The event also saw speeches from Anant's older siblings Akash and Isha - seen by many as the company's attempt to pitch its next generation of leaders. In July 2017, it was twins Isha and Akash who launched Reliance Jio's feature phone. Click for more trending news
