N. R. Narayana Murthy New Role

Infosys chairman emeritus N R Narayana Murthy is being flooded with job offers, and they include one from Bangalore University-to spearhead its only engineering college to greater heights.

NR Narayana Murthy New Role

In an open letter to him, BU vice-chancellor N. Prabhu Dev invited him to “be the chairman of the board of governors of University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering and guide and transform it into a technological institute of excellence for the centenary year of the college - 2017".

The invite comes after NRN’s recent comments on falling standards of the Indian Institutes of Technology. "It is great to see that a statesman like you call a spade a spade when you said about the quality in our most venerable institutions like the IITs have declined. It has stirred a lot of emotions, self reflections and also a sense of deja. You have been candid. People expect that what you say is what you mean. It is fortunate that you have chosen to comment on the status of the technical education at our most respected IITs. When you comment, surely there will be some remedy that you are thinking about. I am certain that you have a plan of action to bring IITs on the global platform," Prabhu Dev wrote.

He went on: "The Roorkee experiment of making it an IIT has proved to be a good one and got well integrated into the IIT system. Similarly the UVCE fits the bill. With your undivided attention, UVCE will be better than the IITs and perhaps become a benchmark in global technical education quality." Earlier, Prabhu Dev had invited Mohandas Pai to cochair the Bengaluru School of Economics, a research centre on lines of the Delhi School of Economics. Pai had resigned from Infosys and accepted the invitation. The centre is expected to open next year.

NRN: Have no presidential ambition
Infosys chairman emeritus N. R. Narayana Murthy told TOI on Thursday that he had no presidential aspirations. When asked about the TV statement attributed to him becoming the President, he said it was mere speculation and anyways it was decided by others and not by him. When pressed further and asked by the television channel whether he would agree to the post if there was a broad political consensus with everybody wanting him to accept that position, he replied that "it would be an honour".
