    Ruthlessly honest and truthful

    Read this book...it is about an engineer, who knows nothing abt cows, went to build asia's largest milk co-op. this is a story of a young indian with fire - like most of us are. it will tell you what it takes to get things done.

    i specially like the para on pg 196, where NZ officer threaths Dr Kurian to stop exporting amul abroad, and global market 'belongs' to them. having already heard a lot an angry kurian says 'if all indians were to spit, your nation will drown in it. dont tell me what...

    Inspirational!!

    I have always admired Amul butter and i still do cherish it as its part of my breakfast. It's from here the curiosity grew to find out who was behind AMUL. Having read this book gave me a clear insight of a man with a mission to serve our nation's farmers.

    It must have been a very frustrating journey for Dr. Verghese Kurien to tackle government bureaucracy apart from the serious ground issues in creating a world class organisation.

    With little funds and many hindrance, he was still able to ...

    Inspirational ... Unbelievable..!

    I just could not beleive one man could stand so much opposition and win so many people's hearts in the notorious buearocracy of India. Anyone else would have given up after the initial years. And just look at the salary he took till the end...! Would anyone of us dare to walk along such ways? 50+ years committed to a country's welfare--he deserves all the awards this nation can bestow upon an individual.Sorry, he is not an individual, he is an institution by himself. All his team members and...

    Nice product

    All of us have one life, each day with 24 hours evenly distributed. Yet, so few of us create real value within this time. Verghese Kurien packed so much into his allotted time in this world, quietly and persistently adding immeasurable value to millions of other lives.This book is about The dreams of an engineer to be part of the white revolution and his exit from the field after his never ending vision.

    It all started when Verghese Kurien returned to , in his words , "A horrifying and divi...

    Inspiring and monumental

    This book covers from pre to post liberalization situation for cooperative movements across India, particularly the diary cooperatives.

    Kurian hints how the bureaucratic institutions perform, how ministers influence the decisions. This book is about the fight of common farmers lead by their manger in the government, against the self-centered people from the same government.

    It's a great read and a refresher.

    Good choice

    This book is about the revolution in milk production in India brought about by Dr. Verghese Kurien, who devoted a lifetime to pursue his dream of empowering the poor farmers of India. It wasn't a dream of his as he started out his professional life but he was drawn into making it his life's work after watching a group of farmers in Gujarat forming a milk cooperative under the leadership of a local farmer Tribhuvandas Patel. Kurien was impressed by the integrity and commitment by Patel and his...

    Highly motivational

    Dr Verghese Kurien has put down all his life's work and the difficulties which he had to face while working at the cooperative. He has been very frank and expressed his disappointment as well as gratitude towards the government and its working. Truly inspirational and recommended for all the age groups to understand the sacrifices, pain and hard work Dr Kurien had put in to form AMUL.
