Narayana Murthy

Filed under: Uncategorized — harshdeep @ 4:57 am

On Thursday, I attended a talk by none other than Narayana Murthy, the legendary co-founder of Infosys. It was hard to believe that the short humble person on the stage calmly explaining the benefits of a flat world (read outsourcing) is the creator of one of the biggest Indian IT companies and an incredible money churning enterprise.

He was here in UT to deliver the first in the Dell Distinguished Lecture series. The title of the talk was “Do we need a Flat World?” He put forward some interesting and well researched ideas, but it’s such a widely debated topic that it’s hard to find something truly novel to talk about.

Thanks to Vijo, I also got a picture taken with the big man himself.

  1. Harshdeep,
    Interesting note. You are right, it will be hard to glean insights into profound topics during an invited lecture. And yes, thought there is not much “novel to talk about” when it comes to global sourcing, we still have miles to go before the world gets flatter.
