Narayanamurthy is a man of simplicity who lives in the same house which he used to live when he was just like anybody else. Even though, he is one of the richest men in the world and happens to be a paragon of virtues or a role model for lots of youngsters in India he lives in a humble flat in Bangalore.
You would not even realize it is him whom you have bumped into until you take a closer look at him. In short, he is simplicity personified! He did not buy for himself a big mansion or a country house to flaunt off his wealth. It appears to me as if the big library that he has in his home is the only thing which he possess to show off his brain wealth.
He is a bibliophile who has a great affinity towards books. We might have seen big shots, buying 4-5 villas to showcase their wealth. Unlike others, he is the one who spends a lot on books. Whenever he gets a spare time he would just flip through the pages of the books he had collected over the years.
He is the one who doesn't like to keep his brain idle. Even after his retirement, he continues to be a mentor and finds only a little time to come home for mid- day meals. His exceptional leadership quality is admired by almost all across the globe. Another admirable quality in him is the stick- ability to achieve his goals. He didn't give up his goals when his first company Softronics failed.
