Nandan Nilekani quits Infosys to head the UID(Unique Identity) project


If you have read today’s newspaper you could not have missed this headlines “Nandan Nilekani quits Infosys to head the UID(Unique Identity) project”. Nandan Nilekani is the Co-chairman of Infosys Technologies Ltd.

Just three days back I picked up his imagining India to read and I was wondering why isn’t he out there in the arena implementing his ideas. And today this news. He is starting a new trend by doing this and I hope he is able to recreate the Infy saga ( This is a challenge as heading a private institution is pretty different from working in the govt. machinery). This, I am sure, will make lots of other entrepreneurs and celebrities follow suit .Our public sector badly needs some fresh perspectives and more effective(read uncorrupt) and innovative people.

PS: Nandan Nilekani is an alumnus of our school. So all the Josephites out there this is something we need to be proud about.
