NR Narayana Murthy is not an unheard of name. The Indian businessman and tech visionary founded Infosys, one of the country’s largest IT companies. He is one of the loudest voices in the country on many aspects such as technology, business, corporate policies, financial issues and digital governance. Recently, Murthy shared advice for youngsters who are in the early stages of their careers.
He has asked the youth not to indulge in moonlighting or insist on working from home. He has called it a trap and warned them to stay away from such requests as coming to the office “three days a week” and working from home on other days. Murthy said that morality and laziness should not be ignored.
Narayana Murthy is quoted as saying, “My fervent desire and humble desire for the youth is please don’t fall into the trap that I will moonlight, I will work from home, I will come to office three days a week.”
The veteran business tycoon is also the father-in-law of Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He led the company to great heights as Chairman, CEO, President and Chief Patron before retiring as one of the country’s biggest wealth creators. He is the chairman emeritus of the company and still holds a minority stake in Infosys. His current net worth is around $4.6 billion (more than Rs 38,000 crore).
