Understatement of the Year

"The ultimate contribution of Infosys is there are thousands and probably millions of entrepreneurs in the country who would say, 'Look, if these seven jokers could do it together, we could do it too'"

Narayana Murthy

As Mr. Narayana Murthy steps down from his position as the Chairman of Infosys, one cannot but help salute the savvy entrepreneur and the legend that has created a billion dollar company out of a dream that was shared by the seven founders.

Spinning of a new venture is almost child's play when compared to the Himalayan task of turning it into one of the biggest software solutions company of a developing economy like India. The former requires guts and an entrepreneurial edge; the latter, good ol' common sense and practical hands-on management. Needless to say, Murthy Sir has donned the many caps with ease over the many years.
