Sudha Murthy's postcard forced JRD Tata, then changed this policy of Tata

Who does not know Sudha Murthy today. She is the wife of Infosys founder Narayana Murthy and mother-in-law of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. But do you know that one of his postcards forced JRD Tata so much that he had to change the policy of the entire Tata Group.

Infosys founder Narayan Murthy's wife Sudha Murthy's visit to 'The Kapil Sharma Show' was like revealing many secrets. Sudha Murthy is also the mother-in-law of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak. In this interview, he also told an anecdote related to JRD Tata, after which Tata Group had to change its entire policy.

This story related to JRD Tata is related to the studies of Sudha Murthy. Let us tell that Sudha Murthy has done graduation in Electrical and Electronics Engineering and master's degree in Computer Science. He has received a gold medal from the Chief Minister of Karnataka for his good marks in graduation. While he has done his master's degree from the Indian Institute of Science.

Something like this happened with Sudha

Actually this story is from the time when Sudha Murthy was studying in college in 1974. She had got a scholarship to study further in America, for which she was busy preparing. In the same period, his eyes fell on a job advertisement of Tata Group's automobile company Telco (today Tata Motors). One thing he noticed about this advertisement was that this job was 'only for men'.

According to Sudha, she became enraged after seeing this advertisement. He decided to register his objection on this and wrote a postcard. Now he did not know to whom the postcard should be sent, then he sent it directly to JRD Tata.

After all, what did Sudha write to Tata?

In her letter, Sudha questioned the policy of 'gender discrimination' of the Tata Group. Also lodged an objection to the job advertisement 'only for men'. He also kept his point in that letter that women can do better work than men, if they are given a chance. If she is not given a chance then how will she prove herself.

JRD Tata liked this thing of Sudha Murthy. After this Tata Group started taking interviews and exams of women for jobs. The company changed its entire hiring policy. Sudha Murthy got a job in Telco. She became the first woman engineer to get a job in the company.
