Bangalore: Great entrepreneurs often go through many sufferings and hardships in their life to achieve the spark and zeal to conquer the world. For the inspirational founder of Infosys, Narayana Murthy, who sculptured his entrepreneurial empire right out of the scratch, there were numerous hurdles and several unceremonious days before he could make a mark in the tech industry. Even in the moments where he faced the gravest dangers, being an Indian stood as a shield for him.

The man, who led one of the biggest IT companies of the country for such a long time, had a great deal of respect and love for his holy motherland India. Undoubtedly, he worked hard towards bringing the country to a competitive stature in the global IT market. In the frenzy of great success and power, many young entrepreneurs get attracted to the apparently glamorous lifestyle of developed countries like US and England; and immigrate away from their motherland. For Narayana Murthy, one of the incidents that make him a proud Indian will always be an inspiration for many Indian entrepreneurs.

Read on to know how Narayana Murthy made his way out of grave situation.

2: Very Brave Narayana Murthyji. Not many people make it public the unpleasant and harsh things in life. Life is full of ups and downs and like a kite one should rise against the wind.

In 1990 I was traveling by Train(Eu rail Pass) from Germany to Italy. I had VISA to Germany and Italy. Just before the border station in Austria a Police entered our Compartment and asked my Passport. I readilily gave him. He said that I don';t have VISA to Austria and as such I cannot pass through Austria on Land. He asked me whether I have money. I replied yes. Then he asked me to accompany him to the station where there is a Visa issuing section. I paid the Visa fee and came back to the compartment to continue the journey. Al through I was afraid of my Luggage in the train as I moved to the Station along with the police. What is interesting is that the Austrian Police does not speak English at all He was saying PASSPORT!

Narayana Murthy Garu ,You are a role model to many. Long live Narayana Murthy.
