In a heartwarming gesture, Mukesh Ambani, along with Anant, Radhika, and other family members, served traditional Gujarati cuisine to residents of Jogwad village near Reliance Township. Radhika's maternal grandmother and parents, Viren and Shaila Merchant, actively participated in the 'anna seva'. Over the next few days, approximately 51,000 locals will be served meals as part of the ongoing festivities.

 

 

The act of sharing food holds deep significance within the Ambani family, rooted in longstanding tradition. During the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, the Reliance Foundation, under the guidance of Anant Ambani's mother, Nita Ambani, spearheaded extensive food distribution initiatives.
