If there is anything N.R Narayana Murthy, Chief Mentor of Infosys, lacks in his career so far, it is a comic book avatar 🙂
Well, not any more, as Amar Chitra Katha is planning a comic on Murthy’s life story. This is a first for ACK too, in the sense that till now, all their comics either portrayed mythological/religious characters or real life personalities who were no longer alive. Murthy will become the first living personality to be so profiled.
Sachin Tendulkar and APJ Abdul Kalam are likely to be next in line.
Interesting way to revive the declining enthusiasm for reading comics among kids, though am not sure if it will work. With the omnipresent Internet, I’ve come across some parents proudly say their kid can switch on the computer and surf the net, but can’t read yet! 😛
