There used to be 'swayamvars' orchestrated by the Kings in India for their daughters to choose the men of their life-and-choice and the men had to coo the bride with their immaculate abilities. Then there are parts of India where still the women-to-be gets literally abducted and forced into the marriage. And till few years ago, i used to hear the Bihar's Shotgun Weddings where the reverse used to happen - yes, the guy being kidnapped by the family for their beloved daughter. None of these happened for N R Narayana Murthy's 30 year old "daughter-like" Infosys.
Swayamvar in current ever-growing modern India sound too much of modernity. The only one i can remember is when first foreign coach of Indian Cricket team was being finalized and Greg Chappel was chosen. The rest is history as we all know. Infosys fared not-so-good in the last two quarters but have never reached to a stage where it can be abducted (read acquired). Its fundamentals are still strong as the pundits say. And doing anything like kidnapping is just out of the world and our thought for an institution of immense ethical standards. Is 'Lure' the apt word to say? Convincing Mr. KV Kamath to bring it back to glory?
Rather , the handover has been a perfect script as of now. A perfect marriage of past with present. Will it survive? Only time will tell. We still need to see how the Tatas fare in their leadership transition. Perhaps they will pick lesson from this rather-so-perfect 'vidaayi'.
