On 25 April 2013, directors on the board of Infosys Ltd received an email from Baburaj Pillai, chief investment officer of Singapore-based Arohi Asset Management Pte. Ltd, who described himself as a “long time shareholder and well-wisher of Infosys”.

For more on the backstory to Narayana Murthy's comeback and departure from Infosys and the appointment of Vishal Sikka as its first non-founder CEO, visit http://www.livemint.com/Companies/beFc2rmqEpgybNaVcyzkyH/What-went-down-at-Infosys.html
