THE KING IS DEAD, LONG LIVE THE KING


Infosys is going through an internal convulsion( आक्षेप/ऐंठन), beating down its stock and contributing to the fall of the overall market index. When a palace coup happens, who falls and who rises is a matter of vital interest to a small number of people who form the
dramatis personae (पात्र/शख़्सियत/व्यक्तित्व). For the country as a whole, what matters, once shedding a ceremonial (अनुष्ठानिक/समारोह) tear for the fallen and hailing the victor (विजेता/विजयी) are done, is that whoever (कोई भी हो) is the new ruler should keep the country stable and improve the quality of governance. The same principle applies to Infosys.
It is natural for Infosys insiders to work up a passion over the rights and wrongs of Narayana Murthy’s constant sniping (कटाक्षों) at Vishal Sikka and Sikka’s failure to counter that guerrilla action, leading to hiseventual (अंतिम/संभव/परिणामिक )ouster. For investors in the company and for the rest of the information technology sector, what matters is that the transformation (परिवर्तन/रूपांतर/प्रपांतरण) in the business model initiated by Sikka, leading to steady (स्थिर /नियमित/अविचल) rise in revenue per employee, should continue. The information technology sector is ripe for disruption. It must adapt to the new environment in which automation and artificial intelligence would take over a lot of the customary work done by legions of coders.
Instead of falling victim, India’s information technology needs to drive the change. Vishal Sikka and the current Infosys board that supported him recognised the challenge and set in motion a process of change. This is all to the good. But the process of change has been accompanied by a cultural clash, between austere(सीधा-सादा/तीक्ष्ण/कठोर) conservatism and expensive flamboyance, which has led to much heartburn among the old guard.
Their backlash (प्रतिक्रिया/फिसलना) has been strong enough to oust the torchbearer of change. Whoever comes in next would have to be culturally more compatible but no less insistent (आग्रहपूर्ण) on the need for change than Sikka has been.
Narayana Murthy’s return from corporate self-exile to activism raises serious questions. Should a founder retire at all, unless other shareholders find him a hindrance to growth? Having handed over the wheel to someone else, why do backseat driving? But the real challenge is to keep Infosys growing and evolving.
