A big fat South Indian wedding is in the offing with Infosys mentor N R Narayana Murthy’s son Rohan set to marry Lakshmi Venu, only daughter of TVS Motors chairman Venu Srinivsan. Rohan, a Microsoft fellow, who is doing his PhD in computer science from Harvard University, has an engineering degree from Cornell University.
He earlier schooled at Bishop Cotton Boys’ School in Bangalore. Lakshmi, who studied economics at Yale Univeristy, later got a PhD in manufacturing management from Warwick Univesity in the UK. In Chennai she did her schooling at Shishya.
Lakshmi is mandated to steer strategy at both Sundaram Clayton (an auto component maker) and TVS Motor (India’s third largest two-wheeler company).
Said Narayana Murthy, who is on a visit to Mantralaya, home of the revered saint Sri Raghavendra Swami, "We are very happy. Lakshmi is such a wonderful person." He said that the marriage date was left to the couple. "I don’t want to get into the details. It is left to the couple.
They are both mature, intelligent people and will decide these things on their own." Rohan is currently in Chennai meeting members of Lakshmi’s family.
