I am sharing in brief  about a place and person which nextgen is not aware of and which they must know. Late Shri Kasturbhai Lalbhai , Arvind Ltd & Atul Ltd. Atul Ltd, a lush green industrial township near Valsad is no less than a beautiful hill station & resort. A place where i spent my childhood and school days. A place where i started my professional career as Management Trainee way back in 1990. Late Shri Kasturbhai, born in gujarati jain baniya family, was JUST a MATRIC PASS in those days. But his far sighted vision brought many laurels to his credit, which includes the following. 1. He promoted Arvind Limited, mfg. Arrow shirts, denim jeans etc. 2. He promoted Atul Ltd., a well know dyes & intermediate mfg co. 3. He donated land to build IIM, Ahmedabad but declined to     become its 1st Chairman. 4. He was the 1st Chairman of IIT Mumbai. 5. Director, Reserve Bank of India from 1937 to 1949. 6. He founded an Engg. College in the name of his father Lalbhai      popularly known  as L.D.Engineering College, A'bad. 7. He founded Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industries. 8. Member of Advisory Committe, Fundamental Rights. 9. Chairman, Economic Committee, Ministry of Finance in 1948. 10. Founder of ATIRA, Ahmedabad with Dr. Vikram Sarabhai
