“Satyam” in Sanskrit and a host of Hindu Dravidian languages like (Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam) means Truth / Honesty.

Asatyam” means just the opposite.

With the investor backlash over the attempted skullduggery by its management (with just 8% stake) to bailout the slumping Raju family group (Satyam founders) concerns MAYTAS Infrastructure and MAYTAS Properties (MAYTAS incidentally is SATYAM spelt reverse) for $1.6 billion (that's all the cash in its balance sheet!) and the subsequent calling off, there seems to be a good case for renaming the company as ASATYAM Computers. It’s not its first attempt by the minority management to oppress other minority shareholders. The group is known for its several dubious pursuits committed with impunity earlier.
