After long-drawn patient mediation, Kokilaben, mother of Mukesh and Anil and widow of Reliance founder Dhirubhai Ambani, could finally work out the truce between her two warring sons.
Kokilaben's involvement in the group has always been limited. She has always kept a low profile and out of the limelight, but this time around she was forced to take centrestage after the empire that her husband built single-handedly began to tremble due to confrontation between her two sons.
The matriarch was helped in her tricky task by ICICI Bank CEO K V Kamath's settlement formula. The fact that both Mukesh and Anil respect their parents tremendously too helped Kokilaben seal the settlement deal quickly.
