In India reality means corruption, dirty roads, says Narayana Murthy

Infosys founder N R Narayana Murthy on Sunday said in India, reality means corruption, dirty roads and pollution among others, whereas in Singapore it means clean road and no pollution. 

Addressing students at GMR Institute of Technology (GMRIT) at Rajam in Vizianagaram district, on its Silver Jubilee Year celebrations, Narayana Murthy said one should look at a lacunae as an opportunity for change and ‘imagine yourself as a leader, and not wait for somebody else to take it.’ He said reality is ‘what you make.’ 

“In India, reality means corruption, dirty roads, pollution and many times no power. However, reality in Singapore means clean road, no pollution and lots of power. Therefore, it is your responsibility to create that new reality”, said Narayana Murthy according to a  press release from GMR. 

He further said young minds should develop the mindset to bring about change in the society, learn to put interest of the public, society, and nation first, above their own personal interest. 

Citing the example of GMR Group Chairman G M Rao, he urged the students to take inspiration from him and “become an entrepreneur whenever possible and create more jobs. As creation of more jobs is the only solution to remove poverty and help the less privileged.” GMR Group Chairman G M Rao said Narayana Murthy has been an inspiration and motivation for aspiring youth. 

“You are an inspiration for my team, all the students and the faculty.” The GMRIT was founded in 1997. The institution, run by the GMR Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility arm – GMR Varalakshmi Foundation (GMRVF), is celebrating its 25th year of inception. 

As IT major Infosys commemorated its 41 years of existence, its founders reminisced about the company’s journey in Bengaluru on Wednesday. N R Narayana Murthy, Nandan M Nilekani, S Gopalakrishnan, S D Shibulal, and K Dinesh took a trip down memory lane at its campus in the IT capital of the country.

Further, Infosys Founder Narayana Murthy revealed his biggest regret as a chairman of the company.

Murthy stated he was wrong that the children of the founders should not get involved in the company’s management roles. Murthy said he was wrong in keeping the next-generation promoter group out of Infosys.
