Ever since I have learnt to understand things, one thing has been a common utterance. In India, you should have business like the Tatas or Birlas. So that is how much famous the two families are. The Reliances and Infosys are all rage of today, but in the past, these two families and to a lesser level the Bajajs were the dominating forces of the Indian industry. It is sad for the doyen Mr. KK Birla to pass away. My condolences with the family and may the great man Rest In Peace. Cheers! Ram

I absolutely agree with you Juhi. In fact, K.K. Birla is one of the guys who used to be with Gandhiji during his sojourns. Cheers! Ram
