    New Delhi (Sputnik): Every 28 December, India bows to three legends that have led and fed the country through good times and bad.

    Saturday, 28 December is the birthday of three Indian icons: Ratan Tata, Dirubhai Ambani and Arun Jeitley.

    Impressed by the coincidence, netizens filled social networking sites with birthday wishes and tributes to the dynamic trio.

    ​Tata who turned 82 is the billionaire former chairperson of Tata Group, an Indian multinational. The industrialist and philanthropist has been honoured with two of India's highest civilian awards – the Padma Vibhushana and Padma Bhushana.

    Ambani, who died back in 2002, founded India’s largest business brand – The Reliance Group. Over the course of 25 years, Ambani led Reliance as it grew into a corporation worth $25.6 billion.... He is survived by his sons, one of whom is the richest man in Asia, with a net worth of $61.1 billion – Mukesh Ambani.

    Unlike his fellow birthday mates, Jaitley was an Indian politician from the ruling party who served as the Minister of Finance and Corporate Affairs for the Government of India from 2014 to 2019, until his last day.

    In their own ways, the three men dedicated their lives to their work and the nation while beginning and triggering a revolution of changes in modern India.
