Ahmedabad: A 24-year-old chartered account from a prosperous Mumbai-based
business family has decided to renounce a fortune worth crores and seek
salvation by dedicating himself to the Jain community.
Mokshesh Sheth, whose family owns JK Corporation, which has interests in
diamond, metal and sugar industries, will become a Jain monk at an elaborate
ceremony to be held at Tapovan Circle on Gandhinagar-Ahmedabad road on Friday
morning in front of thousands of Jain devotees from across the country. Mokshesh,
who has an enviable academic record, says he wants to “audit” the religion as a
humble student instead of sifting through accounts books.
