Not everyday do we come across people like Bhanwarlal Raghunath Doshi who choose to give up their entire wealth to become a monk. Doshi has given up his Rs 600-crore line-up to embrace the monastic life, reports Buisness Insider.

Bhanwarlal Doshi, the owner of D.R. International, an international trading house dealing in various kinds of plastic raw materials, made the move this Sunday in Ahmedabad in a high-end ceremony where around five lakh people were present.
