I Too Had A Dream
I Too Had A Dream
Description
About the Book

Architect of 'Operation Flood', the largest dairy development Programme in the world, Dr Verghese Kurien has enabled India to become the largest milk producer in the world. A man with a rare vision, Dr Kurien has devoted a lifetime to realizing his dream empowering the farmers of India. He has engineered the milk cooperative movement in India.

It was a sheer quirk of fate that landed him in Anand where a small group of farmers were forming a cooperative, Kair District Cooperative Milk Producers' Union Limited (better known as Amul), to sell their milk. Intrigued by the integrity and commitment of their leader Tribhuvandas Patel, Dr. Kurien joined them. Since then there has been no looking back. The 'Anand pattern of cooperatives' were so successful that, at the request of the Government of India, he set up the National Dairy Development board to replicate it across India. He also established the Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation to market its products.

In these memoirs, Sr. Verghese Kurien, popularly known as the 'father of the white revolution', recounts, with customary candour, the story of his life and how he shaped the dairy industry. Profoundly inspiring, these memoirs help us comprehend the magnitude o his contributions and his multifaceted personality.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

Great site! Myriad of items across the cultural spectrum. Great search capability, too. If it's Indian, you'll probably find it here.
