Mukesh Ambani, the richest man in Asia and India and his wife Nita Ambani are careful about their three children. They have been strict in satisfying all the needs of their children. At the same time, both of them are very strict in terms of parenting.
Mukesh and Nita Ambani ensured to grow up their children – Isha, Anant and Akash in good and proper guidance in order to make them better human beings. In a recent interview with “Verve” magazine, the world’s fourth-richest man Mukesh Ambani and his wife Nita Ambani told that her children led a very normal life.
When Anant demanded extra money from his mother when she used to give only Rs.5
Though Nita is the wife of richest man in India and the fourth richest man in the world, she makes sure that her children are raised properly. Nita hails from a middle-class family. She used to take a local bus to go to her college or school.
Instead of sending her kids in their expensive cars, Nita Ambani used to send them to school by the public transport bus. She wanted her children to make aware of the lifestyle. “Life is about being aware of things around,” says Nita Ambani.
In an interview in 2011, Nita revealed how much pocket money she gives to her children. “When my kids were still young, I’d give them Rs 5 each and every Friday to spend in the school canteen.”
“One day, my youngest, Anant, came running into my bedroom and demanded for Rs 10 instead,” Nita said.
“When I questioned him, he said…”
“When I questioned him, he said his pals in school laughed whenever they saw him take out a five-rupee coin saying,’Tu Ambani hai ya bhikari!’ Mukesh and I couldn’t help but crack up,” Nita added.
“As I have already told you that Nita Ambani is from a middle-class family, she narrates,” My mum was a disciplinarian and we were barely allowed to go out – just four times in a year – and there was no pocket money given. Not to mention my curfew, which was midnight.”
Before getting hitched to Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani aspired to become a teacher. After marriage, she took the responsibility of the family.
