Ramnarain Ruia

In a first-person account, Aditya Ruia, a fourth generation descendent of industrialist Ramnarain Ruia, talks about his stints as an entrepreneur, his tryst with Rajasthan and his roots, his association with textile revivalist and crafts master Martand Singh that brought out his creative side, the founding of Bombay Art Gallery that was a further recognition of his creative talents and his zest for spiritual texts to understand the source of all Indian art.

Mumbai owes much of its transformational journey to the cotton merchants who reigned over the city’s flourishing cotton industry from the mid-nineteenth century to the late twentieth century. Among the most illustrious of them was cotton baron Ramnarain Ruia, the founding father of a business empire that survives till today. Sadly, in spite of his enormous contributions, there is little that we collectively remember of him, let alone pay him the tribute he deserves.
