Cotton Industry

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.
