I just happened to be browsing through the site when I came across this book. Having seen that it is the only book which has the memoirs of the father of the "White Revolution" not just in India but the world. When I got the book I just happened to read casually the first page and it caught me right there! I couldn't take my eyes off of it. While reading the book and going through the pages one can't help but notice that here is a man talking straight from his heart, who has done everything in his life for his entire life from his heart and rest is history. The book has very interesting anecdotes about Mr. Kurien coming in direct confrontation with rulers and ministers and civil servants at the highest levels and the outcome of each of such confrontation is joyous and a treat to the reader. It tells us about Mr. Kurien's encounters with all the Prime Ministers of this country right from Jawaharlal Nehru, Shashtri, Indira, Morarji, Rajiv, Narasimha or Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and many more. It is not just a book but takes the reader to a journey across time and people and the creation of a country which imported most of its milk to the highest milk producer of the world! All because of the DREAM that this man shared with the farmers of Gujarat. A MUST READ AND A TREAT.
