Can one man change the face of a nation?

Read the life of Verghese Kurien, who was known as the Milkman of India. Almost single-handedly, he changed the dairy industry in India, taking India from being a milk-deficit nation to the largest producer of milk and milk products in the world. His work impacted for the better the lives of hundreds of thousands of rural families, particularly women. He is also the man behind Amul, possibly India’s best-known and best-loved brand of dairy foods.

Part of Scholastic’s new Great Lives  series, this is a delightful mix of text and Dhruva Rao's witty and charming graphics.
