Sudha Murthy is a natural public speaker who claims to have "never ever prepared any speech." This week's 13th edition of The Penguin Annual Lecture in Delhi will be no exception. She'll make her decision right then and there. “All of my experiences are factual and exciting, and people prefer to hear the truth over fiction,” adds Murthy, who is also the chairman of Infosys.

The lecture, titled "Storytelling and Social Change: How Literature Influences Who We Are and What We Do," will be held on December 11 at The Imperial in Delhi, and will see Murthy combine two of her passions — storytelling and social work — to demonstrate a deep-rooted connection between literary arts and philanthropy, drawing on her written work and life experiences.

“I've been writing since I was 15, and it's my way of expressing joy, anxiety, and happiness. Unexpectedly, I've discovered that reading has piqued the attention of some men, women, and even children in making a tiny difference. That, to me, is the true measure of my work's success,” she says.

Murthy has published over 30 works, including novels, collections of short tales, and non-fiction, and was awarded the RK Narayan Award for Literature in 2006. Her storey about being the only female student at BVB College of Engineering and Technology in Hubli, which didn't even have a ladies' washroom, recently went popular on social media after she shared it on the show Kaun Banega Crorepati. It's one of the many tales in her book Three Thousand Stitches: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives, published in 2017.

She recently published The Daughter from a Wishing Tree: Unusual Tales about Women in Mythology, the fourth book in her famous mythology series for youngsters. “Mythology is primarily written by men, and it is frequently discussed from their perspective. There are a lot of women who have quietly worked and given their spouses a lot of bravery, but they aren't talked about. Only Sita and Draupadi are mentioned, although there are many others. “It was because of this void that I decided to write about unknown women who played key roles in mythology,” she explains.
