Infosys Foundation chairperson Sudha Murthy Shows Why Money Shouldn't Change Our Values
In today's modern time when every second person believes in showing off their luxurious life, Infosys Foundation chairperson Sudha Murthy's modesty and simple approach towards life is commendable and worth learning of. Sudha Ji, whose wealth is estimated to be RS, 2480 crore, never flaunts her money and possessions like her rich and famous counterparts. Sudha has given us a chance to take a sneak into her simple life as she has contributed her part on many occasions, which are witnessed by many.

Sudha Ji, Wife of Infosys Founder Narayan Murthy, has taught us the moral values one should have in their life. Today, let's take you through some of the modest works that Sudha Ji has been a part of. Without any help of another person, Sudha offers services at Temples and Gurudwaras.

In an interview a few years back, Sudha Ji told that for three days in a year, she wakes up at 4 am and visits the Raghavendra Swamy temple to offer her services in the most simple way. For the next 4 hours, she spends her time in the kitchen by doing all the chores like cleaning the utensils, dusting, chops vegetable and what not!

Did we ever bother to help our mothers in her household chores, who works 24/7 just for us! We surely can take up something today from this modest works of Sudha Ji.

Talking about her experiences, Sudha Ji shared her most inspiring lessons for the money-minded generation, "Giving money is easy, because it is a simple transaction. But doing physical Seva is not."

She also gets motivation from Sikh philosophy of 'kar seva' and has often spotted taking care of devotees' footwears in a gurudwara in Delhi. And when asked why she does all that, she said, "In the eyes of God we all are equal, but not in the eyes of the society."

Not only this, but she has also been seen buying her own vegetables from local vendors without bargaining. A heart-warming picture of Sudha with a local also went viral a earlier this year.

Another inspirational thought that Sudha Ji believed in, is giving up one of the things that she loves the most. And one of them for her is saree. Sudha, who is usually seen in simple sarees, she has not bought a single sari from the past 21 years.

Sudha Murthy is a role model for all of us, who run after money and fame and teaches us the importance of simplicity and compassion. Let's pledge to take away some learnings of Sudha Murthy Ji and apply them in our lives to be a better version of ourselves!
