Dr Verghese Kurien is an inspiration for one and all.
The first time I heard Dr Kurien was during a welcome address to the new batch of students. I was hardly aware of him or the institute much before that. But his baritone and the thoughtfulness behind his words were captivating enough.
He said (and I quote from memory so the message is key, not the words) – A leader is someone ‘with a good mind, a warm heart and a desire to do good to people’. ‘And we are working on creating those leaders here.’ There was some magic and seriousness in way he said these words.
Impactful words from a great leader. Forever imprinted in minds to follow.
