Infosys co-founder N.R. Narayana Murthy’s wife Sudha Murthy is known for her philanthropic works and recently a video of her has gone viral but for all the right reasons. In that video, she was seen packing relief materials for flood-hit people of Karnataka’s Kodagu district and, interestingly, what she is doing has been captured by someone and it has gone viral on social media.
The video shows Ms. Murthy packing relief material herself and supervising the packing process. She also can be seen opening a carton and passing on relief material to people seated in a packed room busy with the work.
While floods have receded and life limped back to normal, relief operations were still in full swing in flood-hit Kodagu, with the administration and several others rushing food grains and other provisions to towns and villages across the district. For many Ms. Murthy taking on the job herself in the relief work for the people was really praiseworthy.
In that video, she can be seen so busy and taking on the work so seriously not just supervising others but doing the work herself so passionately.
As the video of Ms. Murthy has gone viral widely, the former CM of Karnataka and now Union Minister DV Sadananda Gowda was among who had shared it on his Twitter handle calling her ‘Amma’ for her unassuming work.
This is what the BJP leader has written and posted.

Thousands of people have been affected by recent incessant rains, floods, and landslides in several parts of the country with Kerala being the most affected one. While many people have lost their lives and thousands displaced in flood-ravaged Kerala, there are many people in Karnataka’s Kodagu district who have also been affected by the incessant rains which had triggered floods and landslides in the district claiming over dozens of lives since August 12. Meanwhile, restoration work has begun after the water levels have receded in many areas.
