Skill necessary along with education: Dr. Sudha Murty

Skill necessary along with education: Dr. Sudha Murty

May 17, 2022

Mysore/Mysuru: “It won’t be enough for students if they get just a degree. They should acquire the needed professional skills,” said former Chief of Infosys Foundation and writer Dr. Sudha Murty.

She was speaking at a programme ‘Jeevana Pata mattu Hastakshara’ organised at Sapna Book House yesterday. “Many Engineering graduates are working as auto drivers, Police Constables and at Rice Mills because of lack of required professional skills which is really sad,” she added.

Recalling the hardships she had to face when she was pursuing her Engineering course, Dr. Sudha Murty said that she used to avoid using toilets as she was the only girl student in the college and to ensure that no other girl student faced similar hardships, 14,000 toilets were built through her Infosys Foundation.

“Even if one study in Kannada medium, English knowledge is very essential to grow in the professional field; that is why, English should be taught at Government schools from the primary school level,” she advised.

She posed with readers who purchased books written by her and also gave her autograph on the books to encourage people to study more books.

    I completely agree on Sudha Murthy Amma’s ask on having English speaking skills and managing skill other than just a degree, I would suggest to facilitate online coaching on English speaking and life skills to the needy and I would like to teach students online if this is facilitated

    You are just a stupid Mysorean/indian. You will swallow anything .
    Except that she is the wife of a person who ran IT sweat shops employing cheap IT labour, and hence became very rich, what skiils she has except advising others?
    Her hfather was a doctor. She joined Bhoomraddi College of Engineering, not IIT or IISC, and like her husband who often prattles about his difficulties in his engineering course because, his father was notb well todo-he was the son of high school head master, not a poor brick layer.

    @Kawakawaffoxgowda -Yes, We can understand your feelings!! He is also a stupid Mysorean/indian who is working in a US technology multinational company as a senior technology executive at a top position just like many while you are a brilliant and Genius college dropout who is serving the humanity as a self-appointed highly prestigious fulltime freelance commentator who spends his entire day/life commenting on how the stupid people are successful . Keep up your good work! The world really needs your service! I can tell you, I work with 6 more stupid Mysoreans in the bay area who are all working the in the cutting edge technology . I just found out they all started their career with Infosys ! Hope I made your day!

    Art of doing a job successfully, as I understand, is skill. It is cultivated through a work culture, mind set, education, dedication and desire. It also establish the fact of doing things correct, each and every time successfully.
    Giving some personal view or example on the subject matter is a relative terms and not desirable as matter of argument.

  5. Who let the dogs out says:

    well said @Sam.
    you must have watched a few rabid stays here, who do nothing else than spread the rabidity.

  6. Kawakawaffoxgowda says:

    Interesting that you started your life as HB-1 visa cheap techie! Cutting edge, technology? Yes, coding and more coding? No managerial position, I am sure.
    I have a few IT techies like you working for me-well, we outsource the coding to the likes of you.
    You have a canine friend poster supporter there for you.
    Oh, btw, Infosys Murthy’s daughter has a £7 million pad about there! You contributed to it, idiot!

    Hey Sam
    We did not realise that you run the SAP outfit at the Bay area! Why, hide behind that ‘Pay it Again, Sam’ garb? Well, happy coding on that ‘cutting edge tech ‘work!

    As for @Who let the dogs out, he got the Rabies by licking his canine friends!

    @Sam and @Sowmitra Das,
    Your points and views hold merit worth consideration.

    Kawakawaddoxgowda sir: Incidentally, I just visited the Bhooma Raddi college, which she was a Alumni and which is now called as KLE Tech University. One should only see what her help could create in that institute. The best course I have ever seen (in my 25 years experience), in any engineering college, to bring out the creativity in young engineers while they are studying first year. Not even in IIT-s. I know that as I passed through IIT system and even did my PH.D. in Tokyo. So, she means really what she says and actually practices. Let’s respect her.

    For those enthusiastic commenters who are under the assumption that their identity will never be known,
    just to let you know that your IP address and GPS coordinates are tracked and if you make any offensive comments about sensitive subjects, it may have consequences! Indian legal system can be too sloppy but there may definitely some not so legal consequences!
