Verghese Kurien (26 November 1921 – 9 September 2012) was an Indian social entrepreneur who is known as the Father of White Revolution in India for his Operation Flood, the world's largest agricultural development programme. This transformed India from a milk-deficient nation to the world's largest milk producer, surpassing the United States of America in 1998, with about 17 percent of global output in 2010–11, which in 30 years doubled milk available to every person. Dairy farming became India's largest self-sustaining industry. He also made India self-sufficient in edible oils taking on the powerful and entrenched oil supplying lobby.
