Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni writes the first account of Sudha Murty and Narayana Murthy’s relationship and the founding of Infosys with the participation of the Murthys

The Jaipur Literature Festival 2024 is gearing up for its five-day literary extravaganza! Renowned as ‘the greatest literary show on earth’, the Festival is scheduled from February 1st to 5th, 2024. The 17th edition promises a rich programme featuring over 250 distinguished writers, thinkers, and speakers from India and around the world. The Festival will be held at Hotel Clarks Amer in Jaipur.
Amongst the celebrated lineup of speakers is acclaimed novelist Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. She is writing the first-ever account of Sudha Murty and Narayana Murthy’s courtship and the early days of their marriage, telling the story of the founding of Infosys through their relationship. It is the only book that the Murthys have participated in, giving intensive, in-depth interviews.
The book has already received early praise from Indra Nooyi (‘Amazing…Part business book, part romance novel’), Mukesh Ambani (‘Beautiful’), Twinkle Khanna (‘Grippingly told’) and Sachin Tendulkar (‘Inspiring’).
Chitra Divakaruni says “Writing this book was an amazing experience for me. I was privileged to spend in-depth time with the Murthys. Together we delved into never-told stories from their childhood and youth as well as the inspirational, traumatic, and human moments that shaped their characters, their success, and their philanthropy. I believe readers will be as fascinated as I was with the result.”
