While giving a speech after receiving an honorary doctorate degree in excelling in the work field, 1986 batch alumnus of National Institute of Technology-Tiruchy (NIT-T) and chairman of Tata Sons N Chandrasekaran advised students to follow in the footsteps of NR Narayana Murthy, the co-founder of Infosys.
Speaking at the 13th convocation day ceremony held on Saturday, Chandrasekaran said that he felt he was returning home and meeting his family after years. He even recalled moments that he had spent in the campus and in the hostel.
He said that NIT laid the foundation for what he is today. He called Murthy “a legend with multiple dimensions”.
“Narayana Murthy has shown how simple a successful person can be and he is one of the best role models for youngsters,” Chandrasekaran said.
While encouraging and congratulating the graduates, he said, “For those of you who want to face these challenges and wish to take up entrepreneurship, do not be afraid to generate ideas.” Murthy had earlier inaugurated the Golden Jubilee Convention Hall at NIIT. It was constructed at an estimated cost of Rs 22 crores and has a seating capacity of 5,000.
