Narayana Murthy Advocates 70-Hour Workweeks for Youth
Murthy's Vision for India's Future Workforce
In a thought-provoking interview, Infosys co-founder Narayana Murthy draws a bold parallel between India’s current workforce and the post-World War II situations in Germany and Japan. He passionately suggests that the young workforce of India should commit a minimum of 70 hours per week to work, with the aim of reshaping the nation’s work culture and ultimately influencing the government for the better.
Narayana Murthy, a venerable figure at the age of 77, emphasized the importance of long working hours in a recent interview published on YouTube by Indian venture capital firm 3one4 Capital. He firmly believes that such dedication to work can instill a culture that can bring about positive changes in the country’s governance.
