Anil Ambani On Fitness


wealthymatters“I have been running long distance for many years. I do at least 100 km a week. On most mornings, I run alone before dawn, when the rest of Bombay is still sleeping. I don’t need an alarm to get up. No wake-up call, either. My body clock goes off at 3.30 or 4 a.m. and I get up and get out. I am in a kind of meditative trance when I run. And I run with my thoughts. Some of my brightest business ideas come to me when I’m running by myself.

I have heard about the loneliness of the long-distance runner, but I don’t know about it. When I am running, I am focused on my speed, my timing, and the distance I intend to cover.

We used to stay in a place called Jai Hind Estate on the fifth floor. It’s a big chawl with 500 families staying in it. It was cheap. What was it? It was a one-bedroom house. My dad, my mother, my grandmother, my uncle, my brother and myself lived in one room.We used to play in the chawl. There used to be this big corridor running alongside twenty pigeonhole type flats on one floor. We used to be there, looking at the activity in the street below. Why is it called Kabutarkhana? It’s a huge place where all the pigeons descend and people feed them chana. Next door there’s a temple. So everybody goes into the temple, prays, comes out and throws chana to the pigeons.There’s a milk market in a locality called Panjrapole. The embroidery business is right there. Oh, there’s a lot of hustle and bustle in Kabutarkhana.” Read more of this post
