Inspiring Woman Of The Day

Posted: July 22, 2012

More than capable of holding her own ground, Sudha Murthy is not just another trophy wife of a famous man. 

Sudha Murthy has often proved that she is not a mere shadow of her famous husband. While many marriages take place for the sake of huge bank balances, Sudha Murthy, is one of those few women, who not only chose a man who said he could not provide her with riches, but also when he did, she used it for the betterment of the society.

An academically brilliant student, she was staunchly against gender discrimination. Having written a letter to Tata Motors about a discriminatory job posting mentioning lady candidates to not apply, Sudha Murthy actually bagged the same job.

She is a simpleton at heart and believes in using her wealth for helping the less fortunate. An author and a visionary, Sudha Murthy is an intellectual who is a class apart with a warm heart and a down-to-earth attitude.

Why we find her inspiring:

– For being courageous enough to speak openly about gender discrimination

– For her level headedness and zeal to help others
