Don't Enter Politics, Mr. Narayana Murthy, become the President

Updates on this post in April 2007 now available

A Presidential Candidate, worthy of being a successor cannot waste his time with becoming and learning party politics. Dr. Kalam has changed the way we perceive and understand presidentship, we need a more proactive President to succeed him to completely get out of the Colonial hangover, the time is right if one were to talk Gandhi's prediction that it would take us 75 years to get Colonialism out of our minds. We need a business person with the kind of independent and steadfast background as Narayanamoorthy to be at the helm to assert is my thoughts today.

The Hindu : National : No plan to enter politics: Narayana Murthy: "No plan to enter politics: Narayana Murthy
'It is a complex canvas, which I am incompetent to handle'

Bangalore: Describing politics as a 'complex canvas' with multiple divides, Infosys Chief Mentor N.R. Narayana Murthy said he had no plans to venture into the field once he retired from the firm next month. 'I have no desire to enter politics. Because I am not suited for that,' Mr. Murthy, who retires from Infosys on August 20 when he turns 60, said in an interview here.
Politics, he said, was a 'very complex canvas' with multiple divides � urban and rural, rich and poor, and educated and not so educated. 'So, I don't think I am competent to handle such a complex canvas.'
Mr. Murthy said on the other hand he had 'some experience in working with a set of homogenous people, that is well-educated people whose objectives are very much aligned with my objectives ... people who believe in certain values.' "
