In a significant announcement made on International Women’s Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi revealed that Indian educator and author Sudha Murty has been nominated to the Rajya Sabha. The news was shared by the Prime Minister on a social media platform.

Expressing his delight, PM Modi stated, “The President of India has nominated Sudha Ji to the Rajya Sabha. Her immense and inspiring contributions to diverse fields including social work, philanthropy, and education are well-known.”

The Prime Minister further emphasized that Murty’s nomination to the Upper House is a powerful testament to ‘Nari Shakti’ (women power), exemplifying the strength and potential of women in shaping the nation’s destiny.

Sudha Murty, who is married to Infosys founder Narayana Murthy, is a renowned writer in Kannada and English, with a wide range of novels, technical books, and travelogues to her credit. She is also the mother of venture capitalist Akshata Murty, who is married to UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak.

Currently not in India, Murty expressed her gratitude to PM Modi for the nomination, calling it a “big Women’s Day gift” and acknowledging it as a “new responsibility to work for the country.”

Born on August 19, 1950, in Shiggaon, Karnataka, Sudha Murty began her career as a computer scientist and engineer. She made history as the first female engineer hired at Tata Engineering and Locomotive Company (Telco).

Murty’s philanthropic efforts are extensive and impactful. As the chairperson of the Infosys Foundation, she has addressed issues like poverty, healthcare, and sanitation. Her initiatives include building homes in flood-affected areas, establishing libraries in schools, and funding the construction of public toilets.

Murty’s influence extends beyond India. She is the founder of the Murty Classical Library of India at Harvard University, further cementing her legacy in the field of education.
