People Whom I Admire – Dr. Verghese Kurien

I heard about Dr. Kurien in a GK class during 10th. Later I read about him in Annadaatha magazine, followed by news media. He is father of White Revolution in India, and Anand village in Gujarat is recognized world wide due to his efforts. Amul is his brain child. Dr. Kurien is the first person who demonstrated making milk pudding (cheek) from normal milk. Unfortunately, because of improper politics he was forced to quit from his role. Now India is largest milk producer in the world and second maker of milk products after Swiss. We still have to improve on productivity. We can read some of his thoughts from the book “I too had a Dream”.
