Leaving Infosys as painful as sending away daughter after marriage: Narayana Murthy
Wednesday, 18th May 2011
Leaving Infosys to N R Narayana Murthy was like parents sending away their daughter after her marriage, the founder and outgoing chairman has said in his last letter to the company's shareholders.

"The best analogy that I can think of for this separation between Infosys and me is that of one's daughter getting married and leaving her parents' home," Murthy said in an emotional letter to Infosys' shareholders.

Having nurtured the country's leading IT firm for the last 30 years, Murthy would be succeeded by eminent banker K V Kamath as Infosys' Chairman with effect from August 21 and would thereafter become 'Chairman Emeritus'.

Murthy, in his letter published in the company's annual report for 2010-11, went on to say that he had to go through tough times explaining to his son and daughter about whom he loved more -- Infosys or the family.

Murthy said that his children do not believe him, even today, that he loved them more than anything else.
