    Congratulations Mr Murthy.. For shaming your birthplace.. More power to you. Remember. Don't come back to this poor land. This country is better without you. Best wishes for your family in a newly discovered great country...

    I'll be proud when Dr Murthy or our children don't have to leave our our India and make it elsewhere in a foreign land never to come back, except to donate some dough to India in some form of other, while paying taxes to other govt to make other nation great. I'd like when Dr Murthy sends his children to India to invest and make this nation better so that so called the poor farmer don't leave this country but build this nation. It doesn't matter whether America is great or UK is great, we'll be happy when they say India is great not as an NRI but as citizen of India.

    Not true. Your ancestors come from such a country, India. Also, because you are male most countries in the world would allow you to do that.
