Hi All !
It has been long time that I wrote a post in my blog. I could not resist writing a post on Satyam and its King “Ramalinga Raju garu”. Definetly January 7th 2009 is a historic day in Indian Corporates. Ramalinga Raju of Satyam computers resigned after confessing that he has done a fraud of several thousand crore rupees as a part of making the company. (see this:http://www.satyam.com/media/pr2jan09.asp).
Satyam was(is) the one of desired companies by the software professionals in India. People looked at Shri Ramalinga Raju as an inspirational personality. He developed Satyam to a considerable level by an incessant hard work of 32 years. Politicians, press and all used to feel as a privilage to rub shoulders with “Satchaym Raju”. They found every aspect of Raju marvelous, superb, inspirational. The milestones achieved by Satyam were also remarkable(http://www.satyam.com/about/milestones.asp).
But what amazes me is the way people try to nullify all the acts of a person. Definelty Mr Raju has not done an excellent job or wonderful job by doing this scam. But how far is it genuine to say that all his acts were blunders and all the works done by him were corrupt. The most irritating thing is the blame put on 108 service of satyam. , Satyam’s foundation introduced a emergency health service through Ambulance ..generally people call it as “108” services. These services are excellent and they saved thousands of lives. How can people simply criticise every damn service of Satyam and its founder Mr Raju.To read more read this news article http://www.hindu.com/2007/01/07/stories/2007010706090300.htm
The employees of Satyam , even today don’t like speaking bad about Raju and still they have respect for Mr Raju. The reactions and unnecessary interpretations are made by the Politicians or people not at all related to Satyam in any form or media which makes every opportunity it gets to increase its existence.
Where has all the goodness done by Mr Raju gone. This hostility shown by people reminds me a telugu poem
“Koorimigala dinamulalo neramulu yennadu kalaganeravu Mari aa koorimi virasambainanu neramule tochu chundu nikkamu sumathi”!!!!!!!!!!!
The meaning of this above poem is ” In the times of freindship , the mistakes of a person are not seen, but the time that friendship breaks ONLY the mistakes of that person are found”….
Definelty Raju is not a hero but he is not a terrorist or rapist. He too deserves some respect.
