Murthy Stumped

June 26 2017

The sudden elevation of a ‘stranger’, Ramnath Kovind, has confounded the co-founder of the top IT company of the country. Infosys’ Narayan Murthy had been almost certain that he would be given the official slot for Raisin Hills. If top sources in the corridors of power are to be believed, even PM Narendra Modi had assured Murthy that his place was pucca, and now suddenly this Kovind man comes from nowhere to dash his dreams of a prosperous retirement. Infosys birds sing that it is after such a major assurance from Modi that Murthy had started cutting down his involvement in the company even further. Though media reports suggested that his devolution from the company was a result of his spat with CEO Vishal Sikka, but internal sources reveal that Murthy and his co-founders selling off their promoters’ shares was because he was getting ready to walk into the Presidential palace. But then, at the very last moment, the Sangh wiped the slate clean of such big names as Murthy, Ratan Tata and Big B, to usher in a grassroots name such as Kovind’s.
