Narayana Murthy Discusses Life After Infosys

Narayana Murthy recently shared his thoughts about life post-retirement from Infosys in an informal chat. The news came from a source at Reader Wall. The 78-year-old tech tycoon highlighted his desire to focus his attention on family and knowledge, rather than jumping into the political arena.

No Interest in Politics

In response to the probe on potentially pursuing a political career, Murthy denied having such plans. “I believe I’m too old for such engagements. At 78, I’m focusing on different aspects of life,” he said.

Plans for the Future

Elucidating his goals, the billionaire entrepreneur unveiled plans to spend quality time with his offspring and grandkids. His roadmap includes indulging in his love for music and reading on an array of subjects from physics to economics.

“Now is the perfect time for me to take pleasure in my grandchildren’s achievements, my children’s progress, and the advancement of my younger colleagues. I aim to devote more time to studying physics, mathematics, philosophy, economics, and other subjects. Additionally, it’s a great time for me to enjoy music,” expressed Murthy.

He further commented on how he should be mostly in observation mode at this time in his life. “Ideally, I should be seen but not heard as much. However, that can be challenging,” he added.

Sudha Murty’s Take on Public Service

Author and philanthropist Sudha Murtha, Murthy’s spouse, spoke on how it’s unnecessary to hold a political position to serve the public. Having helped people through 14 national disasters and one pandemic, she expressed satisfaction in her public service role without a political title.

“I’ve been involved in public service and helping people without the need for a position. I’ve managed the chaos of 14 national disasters and a pandemic. Public service is a part of my life. I believe in action rather than a title. My aim is to continue to spread good moral values,” she explained.

Previous Controversy

It would be remiss to not mention that Murthy generated heated discussions the previous year when he suggested Indian youth should work 70-hours a week. This comment was widely criticized for glorifying a lack of work-life balance by working professionals and fellow CEOs alike.
