Bengaluru, June 3 (UNI) At India Global Innovation Connect 2022 event, Infosys Founder NR Narayana Murthy was at his sublime best reeling out inspiring anecdotes for entrepreneurs to become successful. Among the many vivid narrations of inspirational events in his life as an entrepreneur, he shared his conversation with late industrialist Rahul Bajaj on the topic of having a management guru to succeed.

Murthy said he does not read management books, but learnt the lesson of being one of the best in the trade by putting into practice the inspirational words of Bajaj who told him that competition is the best management guru because it teaches entrepreneurs to make all the stakeholders including the employees and investors happy.

"I don't read management books. Because my late friend Rahul Bajaj taught me a very important lesson. In 1992 I went and met him. I was trembling because I was a nobody. He said what do you want? ' So I asked him - should I have a management guru?"

"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.
