Letters: Narayana Murthy's return

Business Standard  |  New Delhi 

Your editorial "Tale of two models" (August 30), criticises the move to bring back N R to revive and the argument is supported by a comparison with the actions of and a comment by I think the criticism is unjust and arguments weak. isn't known for making great choices since the time it gained a monopoly on the PC business by taking advantage of the laws of the time and Mr Pai, couldn't be completely unbiased in his comments on Infosys' culture since he had quit when he was not picked to be the chief executive officer (CEO). How about comparing the move to bring back Murthy with Starbucks getting retired Founder and Chairman Howard Schultz back to the role of in 2008? Starbucks was sinking when Schultz returned and now the business is flourishing. Procter & Gamble, more recently, did the same and got its retired Alan Lafley back and the move was well appreciated by everyone. Why don't we just watch how the move works out and give Murthy a chance?
