A video showing philanthropist Sudha Murty, enthusiastically singing and dancing as singer Shreya Ghoshal sang for her during the 'Infosys at 40' celebrations in Bengaluru, has gone viral on social media. The event was held at Electronic City, Bengaluru at the headquarters of Infosys. Founded by Narayana Murthy and six others, IT giant Infosys turned 40 this year.

In the video, Mrs. Murty is seen sharing the frame with melody queen Shreya Ghoshal and some other people. Just then, many of them start humming the song 'Barso re megha megha' from Mani Ratnam's "Guru". Mrs. Murty excitedly joins the group singing and also shakes a leg to the popular Bollywood song.
Infosys, a NASDAQ-listed IT company headquartered in Bengaluru, was founded by seven engineers in 1981. Last year, it became the fourth Indian company to reach $100 billion in market capitalization. Interestingly, Sudha Murty was the “first investor” in the company as she loaned her husband Narayana Murty rs. 10,000. With that money, Narayana Murthy began what is today a $17.53 billion company, celebrating 40 years.
Besides being chairperson of Infosys, Sudha Murthy is known for her work as author, educator and philanthropist. Along with her husband and Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy, she founded the Infosys Foundation, a non-profit arm of the company, in 1996. The foundation supports programmes in the areas of healthcare, rural development and education.
