Narayana Murthy’s Letter to Daughter Akshata is a must read


Narayan Murthy3

Here’s the Full Letter that Infosys co-founder N R Narayana Murthy wrote to his daughter Akshata. It is so heartwarming that it is a must read for everyone.


Becoming a father transformed me in ways that I could never have thought possible. I could never go back to being the person I used to be before. Your arrival in my life brought unimaginable joy and a larger responsibility. I was no more just a husband, a son, or a promising employee of a fast-growing company. I was a father, who had to measure up to the expectations his daughter would have of him at every stage of her life.

Your birth raised the benchmark of my life, in every aspect. My interactions at the workplace became more thoughtful and measured; the quality of my transactions with the outside world more considerate, dignified, and mature. I felt a need to deal with every human being more sensitively and courteously. After all, some day you would grow up and understand the world around you, and I didn’t want you ever to think that I had done anything even remotely wrong.

My mind often goes back to the initial days after your birth. Your mother and I were young then and struggling to find our feet in our careers. Two months after your birth in Hubli, we brought you to Mumbai, but discovered quickly enough, that it was a difficult task to nurture a child and manage careers side by side. So, we decided that you would spend the initial years of your life with your grandparents in Hubli. Naturally, it was a hard decision to make, one which took me quite a bit of time to come to terms with. Every weekend, I would take the plane to Belgaum and then hire a car to Hubli. It was very expensive, but I couldn’t do without seeing you.

What never ceased to amaze me was how you created your own little happy world at Hubli, surrounded by your grandparents and a set of adoring aunts and relatives, oblivious of our absence from your life…

I am often asked about the qualities that I have imparted to my children. I tell them that it is your mother who shouldered this great responsibility and I am ever so grateful to her for bringing you up to be the fine individuals you are. She communicated values more by action than by talking about them. She taught Rohan and you the importance of simplicity and austerity. There was this one instance, in Bangalore, when you were selected for a school drama for which you were required to wear a special dress. It was in the mid-eighties, Infosys had just begun its operations, and we did not have any money to spend on non-basic goods. Your mother explained to you that we would not be able to buy the dress and that you would have to drop out of the performance. Much later, you told me that you had not been able to understand or appreciate that incident. We realize it must have been a bit drastic for a child to forgo an important event in school, but, we know you learnt something important from that- the importance of austerity.

Life has changed for us since then and there is enough money. But, you know, our lifestyle continues to be simple. I remember discussing with your mother the issue of sending you kids to school by car once we were a little comfortable with money, but your mother insisted that Rohan and you go to school with your classmates in the regular autorickshaw. You made great friends with the ‘rickshaw uncle’ and had fun with the other kids in the auto. The simplest things in life are often the happiest and they are for free.

You would often ask me why there was no television at our home when the rest of your friends discussed stuff they watched on TV. Your mother decided early on that there would be no TV in Our home so that there would be time for things like studying, reading, discussions, and meeting friends. She insisted that it was important to create an environment conducive to learning at home. Therefore, every night we dedicated the time between 8 pm and 10 pm to pursuits that brought the family together in a productive environment. While Rohan and you did your schoolwork, your mother and I read books on History, Literature, Physics, Mathematics, and Engineering, or did any office work.

It is quite a well-known fact that when a daughter gets married, a father has mixed feelings about it. He hates the fact that there is somebody else in his daughter’s life with whom she shares her affections–a Smart, confident, younger man who gets the attention that was earlier his alone. I, too, was a little sad and jealous when you told us you had found your life partner. But when I met Rishi and found him to be all that you had described him to be-brilliant, handsome, and, most importantly, honest-l understood why you let your heart be stolen. It was then that I reconciled to sharing your affections with him. A few months ago, you made me a proud grandparent. If holding you in my arms for the first time gave me indescribable joy, seeing Krishnaa, your lovely daughter, for the first time at your home in Santa Monica, was a different experience altogether. I wondered, whether from now on, I would have to behave like a wise, grand old man! But, then I realized the bonus to growing older and becoming a grandparent. I would have the joy of pampering a child silly! Besides, you know what they say about grandparents and grandchildren having a common enemy-the parent! I am convinced Krishnaa and I will eventually exchange notes and crib about you and be completely on the same page when it comes to criticizing you!

As you pursue your goals and live a contended life, remember that there is only one planet for us to live in and that planet is now becoming endangered. Remember that it is your responsibility to pass on this planet to Krishnaa in a better condition than you got it from us.

Take care, my child!

Lovingly, Appa

VIDEO: Woman dies while deboarding moving train at Borivali station



MUMBAI: In a shocking incident, a woman died after being crushed by a train at Mumbai’s Borivali railway station. The 55-year-old woman was alighting from the moving train when she fell and came under its wheels. CCTV footage from the station shows a relative of the woman helping her get off Vadodara Express when the train was still moving.


As per media reports, the family had boarded the Vadodara Express at Surat and was headed to Mumbai. According to a news report in the The Indian Express, there was some confusion and the woman, Kirandevi Kishorilal Kothari, along with her nephew Tarun Singh and a female relative started alighting from the train while it was moving.

First, a female relative is seen deboarding the train. Then a man jumps out of the train onto the platform and starts offloading the luggage when it is still moving. Kothari who is wearing a saree is the last one to deboard. She falls and slides into the gap between the train and the platform. According to GRP officials, by the time the train stopped, the woman sustained grievous injuries in the mouth and nose and was bleeding profusely. She was rushed to the hospital but was declared ‘brought dead’.

However, according to Zee News, the family members were to board the train at Borivali station. Zee’s news report says, the train arrived at Borivali station at 3.50 pm and suddenly started moving at 4pm. As some of the woman’s family members had not boarded the train, the others who were already in it decided to get off.  It is then that the incident took place.

This is not the first time such an incident has taken place in India. A woman had died at Mysore Railway station in 2011 when she got trapped between the train and railway platform in efforts to catch a moving train.

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder have won their maiden Big Bash League title by defeating Melbourne Stars in the final of the Australian T20 tournament. Sydney defeated Melbourne by three wickets in spite of Kevin Peterson’s blistering 39-ball-74.

Batting first, Melbourne Stars put up a total of 176 runs for 9 wickets in 20 overs helped by Kevin Pietersen’s blistering 74 runs. Sydney Thunder (181 for 7) achieved the target with 3 balls to spare as in-form opener Usman Khawaja displayed his batting skills in his 40-ball-70 guiding the Thunders’ chase.

Sydney Thunder did lose quick wickets towards the end, but the pace set by openers Usman Khawaja and Jacques Kallis early in the inning proved enough to secure a victory.

In the end, a six by Ben Rohrer sealed the match in favour of the Thunders in 19.3 overs. This is a remarkable turnaround for Sydney team that was at the bottom of point table in three of the previous four editions of the BBL.
