“When asked the major influences on his quality of leadership, which he rated a 6 on a scale of 10, Narayan Murthy replied: “My father … was a great fan of Western classical music. On Sundays, he used to play music for
an hour. One day I asked him: why should I listen to this alien music?
He said: What appeals to me is that in a symphony there are over 100 people, each of whom is a maestro, but they come together as a team to play according to a script under this conductor and produce something divine. They prove that one plus one can be more than two. It’s a great
example of teamwork.””
