Bengaluru: Infosys co-founder NR Narayana Murthy's wife and philanthropist Sudha Murthy's video showing her packing relief material for flood-hit people of Kodagu has gone viral on social media.
She is seen supervising the relief material packed in bags embossed with Infosys.
The video shows Sudha Murthy opening a carton and passing on relief material to people seated on the other side of the room, besides packing material herself and supervising the packing process.
BJP leader and Union Minister DV Sadananda Gowda, among many, had shared the video on his Twitter handle and called her 'Amma' (mother) for her unassuming work.
Incessant rains had triggered floods and landslides in Kodagu, which claimed 12 lives since August 12. Restoration work has begun after the water levels receded at many areas.

Pune : A six-year-old boy trapped in a 200 feet deep borewell in Pune district was rescued Thursday after a 16-hour-long operation involving police and disaster response personnel.
A crowd looked on as National Disaster Response Force and police officials carried six-year-old Ravi Pandit Bhil, who was stuck at a depth of 10 feet.
Ravi, son of a road construction worker, fell into the borewell Wednesday afternoon while playing near Thorandale village, 70 km from Pune.
The NDRF team said the boy was rescued at around 9 am and is in good health. "The operation was very critical and required meticulous planning to avoid any injury to the child," an NDRF official said.
"The NDRF was successful in saving the child. Our team members worked painstakingly, never losing sight of the task.
Happy and satisfied that the child is fine and could be rejoined with the family," the official said.
