Sudha Murthy, chairman of the Infosys Foundation, recently appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show with star Raveena Tandon and Oscar-winning film producer Guneet Monga. She shared several interesting experiences about her life on the show. One that drew a lot of attention was the fact that she and her husband, Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy, didn’t take a vacation for 30 years after they founded the company.
Narayana Murthy founded Infosys in 1981, and because he was entirely focused on his work, he depended on Sudha to run the house. “When we started Infosys, we didn’t take a vacation for the next 30 years because Narayana Murthy was always working,” she explained. He used to travel 220 days a year. I didn’t expect anything from him because I raised the kids, and he had no idea about the house. Narayana realised how much I supported him after our kids were out. Later, he told me to continue with my career, and he is supporting me.”
“I have handled 14 national disasters, and I am never at home,” she remarked. I’m always on the go, whether it’s a tsunami, a drought, or COVID. For my job, I am constantly on my toes. ‘It is her passion; let her flourish,’ adds Narayana Murthy. She helped me when I was doing Infosys, and now I will help her when she is excelling.”
Sudha credited her accomplishments to her late father, surgeon RH Kulkarni. She stated that her father encouraged her to pursue her goals of being an engineer, despite the fact that it was not considered a vocation for women at the time. “Last month, I went to Telco Pune, which is now known as Tata Motors,” Sudha said. I went there after almost 49–50 years. When I arrived at the vehicle division, I observed 300 females working and constructing cars. I became overwhelmed and started crying when I saw that. Because of my father. When everyone opposed allowing me to pursue my engineering aspirations, he fought back and allowed me to pursue them. This recognition, this esteem, is all for him.
