Game-Changer is not a term I use often, but nothing describes Dr. Verghese Kurien better than that.
In a nation talking about socialism but doing little to implement it, he created a co-operative movement that successfully took on the might of multinational firms. Long before it became fashionable to talk about it, he realized that true change can only start with the financial empowerment of women. He brought about a paradigm shift by taking a model that worked in a few hundred villages and replicating it across the nation.
Visionary, Leader, Manager.
The Man who Dreamt. The Man who Did.
