After this, the netizens start praising Murthy for her kindness and simplicity. However, in a recent interview with IANS, Sudha Murthy said that she was not happy with the way she was portrayed on social media. She said she was sitting there for a pious work and not for a publicity event.
In that interview Sudha Murthy Said;
“I am not sitting there to sell vegetables. It pains me to hear such stories. I am sitting there as a devotee, not as a vendor. This ritual is very close to my heart. I am sitting in the middle of assorted vegetables to pick good ones to prepare meals during the three-day annual ritual – Ragahvendra Rayara Samaradhane – that takes place in Ragavendra Matha in Bengaluru’s Jayanagara 5th Block near my house.”
Notably, Sudha Murthy is doing this since a very young age. Meanwhile, Sudha Murthy visits the kitchen thrice a year. She sorts and cleans vegetables there. In 2013, a Bangalore Mirror report also states the same.
