'Amul Man', V Kurien passes away

Verghese Kurien
Anand (Guj), Sep 9: The father of India's 'white revolution' Dr Verghese Kurien passed away early this morning at Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital in neighbouring Nadiad town due to age-related problems, Gujarat Co-operative Milk Marketing Federation (GCMMF) sources said.

He was 90 years old and is survived by wife and daughter. 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.

GCMMF chairman M S Sodhi had reached the hospital, sources said. Kurien's 90th birthday was celebrated in a big way at his residence in Anand by the GCMMF on November 26 last year.
