Lifestyle - Ambanis come together for sister's anniversary

MUMBAI: Ambani brothers Mukesh and Anil came together to celebrate sister Dipti Salgaocar's silver marriage anniversary on New Year's eve in Goa,
amid speculation they may bury differences sooner than later.

This is the second time in under a week that the brothers are getting together, the first time being for a prayer meeting on their late father Dhirubhai Ambani's birth anniversary on December 28.

Earlier in December, the two had attended a meeting of industrialists called by leader of the Opposition L K Advani to discuss the impact of the global economic slowdown.

Sources close to the family said Mukesh and Nita, Anil and Tina were present at the gathering at a prominent hotel in Goa, along with other family members including the two sisters Dipti and Nina Kothari and their husbands, besides mother Kokilaben.

Mukesh and Anil had parted ways in June 2005 on differences over control of the business empire left behind by their father. They split the businesses as per a settlement overseen by Kokilaben, but are still fighting each other over implementation of that settlement, but speculation is rife that they may get back together.
