Sudha Murthy, Nandan Nilekani, Ramadorai get Padma Award

It is heartening to note that Infosys Foundation Chair Sudha Murthy, Infosys CEO Nandan Nilekani, and TCS CEO S Ramadorai were declared winners of the prestigious Civilian Awards of the Government of India, namely PADMA Awards in yesterday’s Republic Day function (January 26, 2006).

It is a proud day for IT Professionals.

Padma Shri award winner Sudha Murthy is an outstanding IT Professional; married to NR Narayana Murthy, the “icon figure” of Indian IT industry, Sudha Murthy was the “angel investor” for Infosys, though she is fully devoted to Social Service these days.

Padma Bhushan Award winners Nandan Nilekani & S Ramadorai are first generation entrepreneurs / managers; it is a proud moment for all of us; equally, it is an inspiration for the current generation of youngsters that they too can rise to the highest levels thru meritocracy, without “connections”, “influence” or “power brokers” in today’s India.
