It’s many girls’ dream to have a giant, lavish wedding when they meet the perfect person. Sheyra Munot was no different, except for the fact that her father is a billionaire business tycoon in India.

Her father, Mr. Ajay Munot, wanted his little girl’s dream to come true on her wedding day. He had saved an incredible 11 million dollars specifically to make her special day as grand as she could imagine. However, on reflection, Mr. Munot decided to spend a portion of this on the less fortunate and build 90 apartments for the homeless, back in 2016.

According to the Free Press Journal, Mr. Munot is one of the wealthiest people in India, primarily focusing on the reselling of wheat and cloth. He is also a renowned financial expert. His daughter had never insisted on an over-the-top wedding.

Frankly, she was at a loss for what to do with the money her father had allocated to her wedding. However, she received quite a surprise when her father told her that he had changed his mind. He would be putting the money he had saved for her wedding towards a different cause.


Sheyra was thrilled when she found out just what her father had up his sleeve. Instead of putting the money towards one day and one event, Munot decided to use the money to build lasting homes for the local homeless people in his region of India.

On Sheyra’s wedding day in 2016, she met her father at the development where he had built 90 homes before her wedding day. She and her husband were proud of her father’s work as they officially opened the new housing development.

The couple was able to give a precious gift that meant more than anything they could have received: they gave 90 families a key to their new home. While the homes are small, they are mansions for the families who have spent years living with no roof over their heads in the area's slums. They also finally have access to basic utilities such as electricity and running water.

The bride and groom still had a large ceremony, as the houses had cost less than half of what Mr. Munot originally allocated to his daughter’s wedding day.

Isn’t it incredible how far the money allocated for one big celebration could go in truly changing the lives of 90 families forever? How do you feel about this generous act by Mr. Munot? What do those in your social network think?
