Set to be a new landmark in the city of Mumbai, the Dhirubhai Ambani Square is a free-entry, open public space, which promises to become a must-see destination for local citizens and tourists from around the world. “We dedicate the Dhirubhai Ambani Square and the world-class Fountain of Joy to the people and city of Mumbai. A celebration of the spirit of the city, it will be an iconic new public space where people share joys and soak in the colours and sounds of Aamchi Mumbai!" said Nita Ambani.

Over 250 teachers from BMC schools and other schools across Mumbai were invited to attend the opening show as a mark of respect for their efforts in adapting to the new methods of teaching in the last two years to keep the flame of knowledge burning and ensuring India’s march towards achieving its next decade of success, the company said.
