TBI Tribute: Dr. Verghese Kurien – Lest We Forget

Dr. Verghese Kurien left us exactly one month ago. Known fondly by various names like the Milkman of India and Father of the White Revolution, he not only changed the lives of millions of dairy farmers in the nation but boosted the dairy industry to such an extent as to make India the largest milk-producer in the world. Let us pay tribute to the man who gave us so much, and to whom we never gave the Bharat Ratna. Let us read about him one more time - Lest we forget!
