Indians excelling abroad enhance India’s brand image, should be applauded: Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy

"I would like to applaud them rather than say they have to stay back in India. There is nothing wrong," Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy said in an interview with Moneycontrol.

Even as many founders raised concerns on India's exporting its best talent abroad, one of the country's most successful entrepreneurs - Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy - feels there is nothing wrong with a small percentage of Indians going abroad and excelling there.

"For me a small percentage of Indians going abroad, conducting themselves as model citizens of those societies that they have adopted and excelling in whatever profession they choose only enhances the brand image of India. These people are our ambassadors. So therefore I would like to applaud them rather than say they have to stay back in India. There is nothing wrong," Murthy said in an interview.

His comments on Indians excelling abroad comes days after India-born Parag Agrawal was appointed Twitter CEO, joining a long list of leaders born in India, who are now heading companies such as Microsoft, Google, IBM, Adobe and VMWare.
