    Azim Premji (Gujarati: અઝીમ પ્રેમજી) (born July 24, 1945), is an Indian businessman. He is the Chairman of Wipro, one of the largest software companies in India. Azim Premji was rated the richest person in the country from 1999 to 2005 as per Forbes. His wealth in 2006 was estimated at US$14.8 Billion which places him as the fifth richest Indian.

    Premji was born in Mumbai to a Gujarati Muslim family. His father M. H. Premji owned the Western India Vegetable Product Company (which later became Wipro Ltd.) which made hydrogenated vegetable oils and fats. While he completed his initial education at St. Mary's School, Mumbai, Premji was forced to leave his studies in computer science from Stanford University, California, USA at the age of 21 to take over the family business when his father suddenly passed away in 1966.
    Premji is married to Yasmeen, the couple have two children, Rishad and Tariq. Rishad is married to Aditi.
    Premji is known for his modesty and frugality in spite of his wealth. He drives a Toyota Corolla and flies economy class, prefers to stay in company guest houses rather than luxury hotels and even served food on paper plates at a lunch honouring his son's wedding.

    According to a recent study by the RBI, Gujarat stood first in the country with investments of US$17.8 billion in 2006-07 or 25.8% of India 's total investment of $69 billion during the year.The southern state of Andhra Pradesh stood a distant second having attracted $6.1 billion in 2006-07.

    A report in Times of India describes the Gulf of Kutch as India 's ' Gulf of Riches '. Four top business houses - Reliance Industries, Essar Group, Adani Group and Tata Group, have invested about $34 billion along the Gulf of Kutch's 700-kilometer long coastline. Other corporate, which had invested over $3.26 billion since the 2001 earthquake have investments worth another $19.5 billion in the pipeline.

    Ten special economic zones (SEZs) near Jamnagar , a 4000-megawatt power project and five private shipyards are coming up. And massive expansion is being undertaken of the Mundra and Kandla ports.

    Not only has Gujarat unseated Maharashtra as India 's number one investment destination but also, it is threatening to dislodge Mumbai, Maharashtra 's capital and the financial and business capital of India , as the trade gateway to the country.

    Mundra port where IOC and HPCL are setting up giant oil storage capacities has already emerged as India 's largest private oil storage tank farm.

    And now Gujarat is nursing ambitions of dislodging Mumbai as India 's financial hub. Its government recently announced the setting up of an international financial services center, the Gujarat International Finance Tech-City with an investment outlay of $6 billion in Ahmedabad.


    Forbes Magazine published list of Top 20 Self-Made Business-Men from Asia . The list includes 6 men from India and out of 6 three are Gujarati - Tulsi Tanti, Gautam Adani and Uday Kotak.

    Thumbs up Gujaratis in Pakistan

    There is also significant community of Gujaratis in neighbouring Pakistan, many have been settled in Sindh for generations. A sizable number migrated after the Partition of India and subsequent creation of independent Pakistan in 1947. These Pakistani Gujaratis belong mainly to the Khoja Bohra, Charotar Sunni Vohra and Memon groups; however, many Gujaratis are also a part of Pakistan's small but vibrant Hindu community. Many Gujaratis in Pakistan retain ties to their relatives in Gujarat, and maintain Gujarati as their native language. However, a growing number are adopting Urdu as their native tongue.

    Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founding father of Pakistan, was a notable person of Gujarati ancestry born in Sindh.
