This gentleman stands apart in his own dignified style. Adi Godrej, the chairman of Godrej Group, which includes 7 major companies with interests in real estate, FMCG, industrial engineering, appliances, furniture, security and agri-care, has successfully steered his business that now has a turnover of over Rs 11,000 crores. This nature lover is a major supporter of the World Wildlife Fund in India. A green business complex in the Vikhroli township of Mumbai, which includes a 150-acre mangrove forest and a school for the children of company employees, is a major symbol of his achievements.

Born into business, father Burjorji and mother Jai managed to give him the middle class values that have stood him in such good stead. The greatest lesson hismother, who as a school teacher, taught him, he says , is 'humility'. But he believes in living life king-size. Today at the age of 62, he spends his Sundays on the Arabian Sea, alternately with a jet ski and a speedboat with his grandsons Aryaan and Azaar. Under Adi Godrej's leadership, the group is also involved in many philanthropic activities. You could say his group is "Mumbai's Best Corporate Citizen"
