The passing away of Dr. M.S. Swaminathan, Bharat’s father of Green Revolution, brings to an end a bright chapter in the making of modern Bharat. We offer our deep condolences to his family members and countless admirers. Dr. Swaminathan was a man dedicated to the all-round welfare of the nation. His concern for the common man was exemplary and it is this compassion that drove him to bring about Green Revolution and transform the lives of millions.
His initiative for fundamental research in the field of agriculture will ever inspire researchers.
Dr. Swaminathan, who put Bharat on the world map in foodgrain production, became an icon for the nation through his grand vision, sheer grit, and disarming humility. His illustrious life will remain an inspiration for new generation. We pray to the almighty to bless the departed soul with everlasting peace.
