Narayana Murthy’s experience
• The other day, my wife and I were
perhaps among the very few over
50-year-olds in the mostly-
twentyish crowd watching the film
Chak De in Bangalore.
• You had to be there to believe the
shouts of joy that accompanied
every goal India scored in the
imaginary tournament in the
movie. The mood at the end was
as if India had actually won the
women’s world cup in hockey.
