Connect Infosys and Shivaji Park.

What has the bellwether of IT and Services industry, Infosys share with Shivaji Park, the mecca of Indian cricket, with its innumerable cricket academies that has produced stalwarts like Sunil Gavaskar, Sachin Tendulkar, Ajit Agarkar, Sanjay Manjarekar to name a few.

The software giant Infosys was christened at Shivaji Park, as disclosed by Sudha Murthy, wife of Infosys founder Narayan Murthy.
"We decided to name our new company as Infosys while sitting at a corner of Shivaji Park," she told the audience at a function after the couple were presented the Yashwantrao Chavan Award for 2006.

More here and I have read few books written by Sudha Murthy, namely Wise and Otherwise, Dollar Bahu and Mahaswetha. These are some simple books and are purely Indian socio-economic and culture centric, written straight from heart.

Was the Infosys and Shivaji Park connection a bit incongruent, if that is so guess for this with it’s "all about cricket" mania in the air,

How does the World Cup Cricket link with China and Taiwan, is it a bit whacky to think that?
Living in temporary plastic huts and taking a single day off each month, about 1,000 employees of state-owned Chinese companies have sweated away the past year on the Caribbean islands of Jamaica, Antigua and Grenada as the West Indies prepare to host the Cricket World Cup, the game's premier international event.

Have a nice day and remain connected.
