NRN is back at Infosys.
That’s not a ‘news’ anymore. But well, there are mixed reactions about his comeback. And that is consuming a lot of media space.
Some said “Welcome”, while others said, “Well, come”.
With great power, comes great responsibility (thus spake Spider-Man) and with great responsibility comes need for great executive assistance (I, don’t know who said this).
NRN’s son, Rohan Murthy, has joined him in the business. He is a Harvard & MIT Fellow. He is young, intelligent and innovative. Actively handles Catamaran Ventures, $130 million fund. He deserves to assist (I doubt if I deserve to make this judgement!) one of best technocrats of India. What if he was not his son and just another outsider? Does he not fit into this role?
Some are criticizing NRN for camouflaging his son’s entry into Infosys using this route. While others are upbeat about his future plans. Fence sitters are of the opinion that NRN’s past glory may not work given the tremendous amount of change that competitive landscape has undergone in past 5 years.
But who says elephants can’t dance. They can jazz and they can rock too. Investors have given a thumbs-up (pun intended) reaction to this news item. Because they want results “O Yes Abhi!”
Let’s wait and watch. NRN has proved himself long back. I believe he can do it again. Like a pakka Tendulkar fan would say, “Form is temporary but class is permanent.”
All I remembered after I read this news was Shahrukh Khan’s classic dialogue from the movie Devdas, “aaj ke baad main is chaukhat pe kabhi nahi aaunga,nah never… haan……….jab bhi paro ki yaad aayegi, main aaunga,jab bhi khudko doshi paunga main aaunga…aur kaha jaunga?
Think about it. If you need any ‘assistance’, let me know!
