His leadership qualities are unmatched by any in contemporary India. He can be compared to the likes of Jamshedji Tata, G D Birla, Jawaharlal Nehru, Verghese Kurien, Vikram Sarabhai, M S Swaminthan and so on .. His lifestory is an example of how in spite of many setbacks and a very unfavourable entrepreneurial climate in the country in 1981, he and his team went against many odds and pursued their dream of setting up a world class IT company in India. In fact, I do not say it as an exaggeration, the IT revolution in India got its wings on the success of Infosys.

5. how he has groomed leaders from outside and from within to lead Infosys to great heights even after all the founders have had their say in running the company.

7. the philanthropic activities undertaken by NRN and wife Sudha Murthy is worth emulation by other business leaders of the country

I am thrilled at the great hopes for an excellent future of the country through his life example ..
His contributions are concrete, real and will inspire many future generations to give their best for the country, at the same time holding high the values, professional ethics and leadership qualities he stands for even to this day ...
The contributions NRN and his equally illustrious co-brother Gururaj Deshpande have made to this country will be remembered for many generations to come. Imagine 100 more Gururajs too contributing to the growth of the country !!
|NRN stressing in no small terms the importance of |
NRN's book " A better India" is a well written, slightly philosophical piece, but touches many contemporary business topics and global issues. It is a "must-read" for any patriotic Indian from college onwards. A gem of a book, it is a compilation of speeches he delivered at different top Universities of the world like Harvard, Stanford to name a few, and to many business association meetings around the world.
It reflects his leadership qualities and thoughts, full of great ideas, great hopes, high value experiences, detailing his failures and successes and worth reading .. Born just the year before India gained independence, NRN tries to make the book very enriching and soothing to the soul, at the same time reflecting on the promise independent India offers to its young brainy citizens. ..
What would India have inherited if NRN had migrated to developed countries like millions of other intelligent Indians ?
|Be prepared, great sane advice can come from any source ..|
This country has the potential to create a thousand more NRNs, let us realise that we all have it in us to be ethical, clean with high values. The country just needs to reorient itself from being a spiritual economy at a higher, commonly incomprehensible, intellectual plane to a professional, value based, earthly economy, looking to solve some of it's perennial day to day problems of hunger, disease, poverty, illiteracy and the like.. The country needs to come down from the high planes where our rishis and great men have taken us over the past many millennia to be more realistic and practical ..
I am sure NRN would be crediting not his family or his fellow colleagues for his fame and repute as much as his parents for instilling in him a sense of devotion to duty, respect for hard work and love to his motherland (patriotism) ..
Good wishes Sir !!
