Father of White Revolution Dr. Verghese Kurien passes away


Anand, 9 September 2012

The father of India’s ‘White Revolution’ Dr Verghese Kurien(90) passed away at around 1.50 am on Sunday at Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital in Nadiad town due to age-related problems. He is survived by wife and daughter.

Dr Kurien, who took India from being a milk-deficient country to the world’s largest milk producer, is recognized as the father of White Revolution and the man who started ’Operation Flood’, besides making the Amul dairy brand a household name.

Dr Kurien’s 90th birthday was celebrated in a big way at his residence in Anand by the GCMMF on November 26 last year.

In his condolence message, Gujarat Chief Minister Shri Narendra Modi said, “My heartfelt tribute on sad demise of Dr. Verghese Kurien. His pioneering work gave the milk revolution, transformed India & touched us all. May his soul rest in peace.”

    Anand is the birth place of modern milk business of India..Tribhuvandas Kishibhai Patel, a colleague of Sardar Patel launched AMUL cooperative movement to make milk business exploitation-free, while Tribhuvandas organized farmers into cooperatives in village after village successfully, Dr. V. Kurien managed the cooperative dairy plants and Shri Dalaya developed various delicious and nutritious products…this trio was instrumental behind the success of Amul..The nation pays homage to departed soul…Dr. Kurien was a high-profile person, while the other two were low-profile but vital persons…without any one of them, Amul would not have been a success…As it happens, high-profile person also gets involved in certain controversies, yet Dr. Kurien would be remembered for many of his contributions..for long time to come..

    Gujarat needs people like him who really work for a cause. It is indeed sad that Dr Kurien is no more.He was truly a great ” Doodhwala ” of Gujarat. May his soul rest in peace. The Government of Gujarat should do something in his memory. I am sure Mr Narendra Modi will do something in this regard.
