  6. 6. <ul><li>In 1981, it was Murthy's idea to start Infosys. Murthy had a dream, and no money. So Sudha gave him Rs 10,000, which she had saved without his knowledge.

  7. 7. <ul><li>There was no luxury, only struggle, day and night. They had no car, no phone. </li></ul><ul><li>Murthy later recalled that it was not the luxuries of life, but the passion to create something new and innovative that made them keep going on and on and on. </li></ul><ul><li>Gopalakrishnan relives the memories of those days. &quot;We had nothing after eight years of trying to bring up a company. Those who studied with us had cars and houses,&quot; he says. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>The company was on the verge of collapse. One of the founder-partners -- Ashok Arora -- was dejected with the way the company was going, and decided to quit. </li></ul><ul><li>The others did not know what to do. But Murthy had the courage of conviction. 'If you all want to leave, you can. But I am going to stick (with it) and make it,' Murthy told them. </li></ul><ul><li>It is said that Infosys began getting big breakthroughs from the US market </li></ul><ul><li>Infosys is the largest publicly traded IT services exporter in India, providing services to 315 large corporations, such as GE and Nortel, predominantly in the USA. </li></ul>Now, it's a global IT giant! 25 years sheer determination, and growth
