Dhruv Gala, a member of Jhunjhunwala’s family friend, said, “Jhunjhunwala sir was my grandfather’s friend.” Recalling the friendship between the families, he added, “We are two brothers, and we both wanted to go abroad for higher studies, but our parents were not ready. It was Jhunjhunwala sir who convinced my parents to let us study abroad, saying it will help us develop greater skills and give us a better future. Jhunjhunwala sir was a great man who taught us many things in life and he was an inspiration to us.”
