A Lot Like Love

Rohan Murty and Aparna Krishnan formalised their association on Monday at a ceremony in Bengaluru, surrounded by friends and family. The Junior Murty, who is known to be unassuming and media-shy, exchanged vows with Aparna in an intimate ceremony.
And as the couple exchanged their vows, past and present members of Infosys, which N R N Murthy had founded along with a few others, blessed them. Among those who turned up were Kris Gopalakrishnan, S D Shibulal and Mohandas Pai.

New Beginnings

The couple had a traditional South Indian wedding that was solemnised in the day. A reception followed in the evening at a five-star hotel in Bengaluru. Rohan Murty kept it simple in a beige kurta while his bride wore a white, floral-printed lehenga with a heavy neck-piece.
Cupid struck three years ago when the couple had met through a common friend. It was only earlier this year they made their relationship public when they decided to make things official. Murty has a PhD in Computer Science from Harvard University, and is a Junior Fellow at the Society of Fellows of the University.
Krishnan, who lives in Bengaluru, did her initial schooling in India and later got a scholarship to the United World College in Canada. An economics graduate from the Dartmouth College in the US, she has worked at McKinsey and Sequoia Capital in India. Her mother, Savithri Krishnan, is a retired SBI employee, while her father KR Krishnan served in the Indian Navy as a Commander.

Mr & Mrs Murthy played the gracious hosts for the evening. Known for their simplicity and humility, the couple personally introduced guests to the newest member of their family. Dressed in silk, the couple posed with the newlyweds.
In previous separate interactions, the couple has reiterated that they wanted their children to have a regular upbringing, minus any starry airs that often came with those growing up in privileged circumstances.

The Infy Reunion

Rohan Murty's wedding gave the Infosys family - past and present - a good reason to catch up. Co-founder K Dinesh, and former CFO Mavinakere Ranganath, were some of the Infoscions who took time off from their daily schedule to attend the season's most happening wedding.
In April 2013, Murty Jr was appointed as Executive Assistant when his father decided to return as Chief Executive Officer. Rumour mills had then gone into overdrive stating that it was being seen as a move to groom him for the big role. Murty Jr, however, decided to step down in a year's time.
