Mrs Nita Ambani’s speech at the opening of Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre (NMACC)

Thank you. Dhanyawaad.
Namaskar.
On behalf of our Cultural Centre, and the entire team of Civilization to Nation, a heartfelt thank you for being our
first and most spectacular audience! It has been a huge pleasure and an honour to present this musical chronicle
of India. As they say, India is where it all started.
Our culture has not just survived, but thrived, over thousands of years. We are one of the oldest living civilizations
of the world. Also, the most diverse. And at the same time, we have one of the world’s youngest populations.
Today, we are in the Amrit Kaal of Modern India.
An auspicious time to begin a glorious new chapter for a proud, prosperous, strong and self-confident nation of
1.4 billion Indians.
For Mukesh and me, the NMACC is a dream come true. For a long time, we had nurtured a dream that India
should have a world-class cultural centre. We were keen to create a space for promoting and celebrating our
artistic and cultural heritage…
In cinema and music,
In dance and drama,
In literature and folklore,
In arts and crafts,
In science and spirituality,
All of which is India’s intangible national wealth.
Dear friends,
Culture weaves the threads of mutual understanding, tolerance and respect that knit communities and countries
together. Culture brings hope and happiness to humanity. Therefore, as an artist, I hope this centre becomes a
space that celebrates the arts, the artists, and the audience. A space where our people can feel proud of their
heritage.
हम चाहतेहैंकि यह एि ऐसा िें द्र बनेजो िला, संस्कृ कत और ज्ञान िी किवेणी िा संगम हो।
We envision this centre to become home not only to the finest talent from Indian cities, but also from our small
towns and remotest villages. I truly hope this space continues to inspire and empower our future generations.
For as long as we have the stage, we have a voice. And as long as we have a voice, we have the power to tell our
stories, stories to shape our history, stories to create a new Tryst with Destiny, and stories to change the world for
the better!
Esteemed guests
As I performed on stage in this Grand Theatre today, I couldn’t help but feel the same excitement of the Nita,
when she was six years old! Even after all these decades of being on stage, I still feel the same energy and gratitude
I felt at that young age. Be it for my Bharatnatyam performances, or the college plays that I worked on. I still
remember my first play in college was with a young talented actor called Feroz. And as they say, life comes a full
circle… I’m delighted to have my friend Feroz right here with me today, as the director of the first theatrical
presented by the NMACC!
My dear friends,
Before I end, I want to thank my family for their faith and trust in me. I especially wish to remember my fatherin-law, Shri Dhirubhai Ambani, who believed in women’s empowerment, and encouraged me to think big and
pursue my dreams. I was deeply moved while performing on the bhajan Raghupati Raghav, a favourite of my
father Shri Ravindrabhai, whose gentleness and compassion continue to guide me.
I want to thank my mother who is with us in the audience today, for her love, positivity, spirituality, and hard
work in making me the person I am. My mother-in-law who is also here today, for being a source of constant
inspiration and motivation. My six children – Isha, Anand, Shloka, Akash, Radhika, & Anant – for their love,
support, and enthusiasm.
You all are my strength! My three precious grandchildren – Prithvi, Aadiya Shakti, and Krishna. They are the
pure joys of my life. I hope art touches their lives in the most beautiful ways. May art continue to inspire and
empower every child, and the coming generations, giving them the opportunity to celebrate their creativity, their
choices, their differences, their hopes, and their dreams.
And of course, I would like to thank my dearest husband Mukesh who has always believed in my every dream.
Without you Mukesh, nothing would have been possible. Thank you for making the journey of life so beautiful.
And now, with immense pride and joy, I declare the Nita Mukesh Ambani Cultural Centre open. It is our humble
dedication to New India!
आज मैंबड़ी कवनम्रता सेहमारेखूब्सूरत देश भारत िो यह िें द्र समकपित िर रही हूँ।
