Dr. Dhanuka believes that “India’s social and economic empowerment is not a one time event, but it is a journey in itself.” Hence his sincere proposition and plea to the promising youth of this Nation is to come together in this journey and never give up on their humble roots and the constant struggles that come with a journey. Destinations are important in life, but it is the journey that shall decide on how we admire and adore the moment when we reach our destination.

"An investment in knowledge pays the best interest" - Benjamin Franklin

A Robust Family-Legacy

The Great Great Great Grandfather and the founder of the group - Late Shri Ramji Dasji Dhanuka laid the platform of the family values. To quote Sir Isaac Newton, Dr. Dhanuka says: “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulder of giants''. The previous generations of his family have been true visionaries. He aspires each day to be worthy to step in their shoes. Learning to respect and decipher the decisions made by his predecessors and adapting the techniques and approaches to the changing times have been a key factor that drives him on a day to day basis. He believes that once we set ourselves a mark, often defined by the achievement of someone we admire and look-up to, it becomes easy to go through the daily jargon and motivate oneself towards one’s “ikigai”. Dr. Dhanuka hopes that he can always maintain the reputation set by his forefathers and leave positive examples for his children to nurture and build upon in the years to come.

BUSINESS PORTFOLIO

Range of Businesses

Dr. Ghanshyam Das Dhanuka’s great grandfather, Shri Ganpat Raiji Dhanuka, was one of the first in North East India to have set up Oil, Rice and Flour Mills and Bread Making factories setting the stone for their formal business ventures. Over the last century, these efforts and traditions have been continued under the able leadership of his grandfather, Shri Gauri Shankar Ji Dhanuka and his father, Shri Ashok Kumarji Dhanuka. Under the leadership of his father, the group diversified into Real Estate and Hospitality Industries, including establishing the renowned Hotel Millennium in Guwahati. While continuing to support the family business verticals, Dr. Ghanshyam Das Dhanuka decided to expand the group into Green Energy, Pharmaceuticals, Personal Care business verticals and infrastructural developments. The last decade and a half has been a period of growth for the businesses under him and he hopes that it will only get more interesting and bring them new opportunities and challenges.
