"I am adventurous in my work, not in my food. I am in fact scared. I am a pure vegetarian, I don't even eat eggs, or garlic. What I am scared of is, is that the same spoon will be used for both, vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. It weighs on my mind a lot! Hence when we go out, I only search for veg restaurants. Or, I carry one bag full of eatables. I carry ready-to-eat stuff, that you have to just heat in water, I carry poha," Sudha Murty told the interviewer.

3. Talking about emotional and physical changes during menopause

Once, in an interview, Sudha Murty shared the emotional and physical changes she went through after menopause.

While some supported him, others spoke against it. Sudha Murty weighed in and supported her husband. "My definition is you should enjoy your work. You should be passionate about your work. The work is holiday then,” she shared.
