"He (Bajaj) says forget about all of that. Your competition is your best management guru. Competition will teach you to keep your customers happy. Provide better value of money to your customers; will Keep your employees happy; make your investors happy. All these things will come automatically if you embrace competition with an open mind. That lesson which I learnt from my revered senior, late Rahul Bajaj, is all that matters," Murthy said.
