Petitioning President of India

Confer Bharat Ratna on Dr Verghese Kurien posthumously

Dr Verghese Kurien needs to be honoured with the highest civilian award of India because he helped the country become the largest producer of milk, and particularly because of the strategy adopted to accomplish this feat, which ensured empowerment of millions of small and marginal farmers in the dairy sector. He ought to be honoured also for his contribution in building a number of institutions including notably the NDDB, GCMMF, NCDFI and, last but not least, the Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA), which continue to strengthen the foundations of modern Indian nation in ways more than one.

The Government should see that the people of India at large support this cause.
