XLRI- Xavier School of Management is all set to organize the 2nd “Dr Verghese Kurien Memorial Oration on Sustainable Development” in memory of the Founder of AMUL Dr. Verghese Kurien, otherwise known as “the Milkman of India” on 19th September, 2015 at XLRI Campus, Jamshedpur. The oration is to be delivered by Mr. Bunker Roy, Founder and Director, Barefoot College, Tilonia, Ajmer.

Mr. Bunker Roy is an eminent social activist and educator, recognized as one of the 50 leading environmentalists by The Guardian in 2008, and as one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine in 2010. An alumnus of Doon School and St Stephens College Delhi, Mr. Roy has been actively working for the rural people. He established Social Work and Research Centre, popularly known as the Barefoot College, in Tilonia village, Ajmer (Rajasthan), with a mission to empower rural poor through training for building self-sustained communities. The College, which is fully solar electrified, is built and managed by the poor, and provides skills for sustainable living, including as solar engineers, teachers, midwives, weavers, architects and doctors to rural communities. Over the years, the Barefoot College has trained more than 3 million people, and its program/ approach has been implemented in over 30 of the Least Developed Countries.

Mr. Bunker Roy would deliver the oration on the topic “The 21st Century Gandhian Model to Sustainability”.

Fr. E Abraham, S. J. Director of XLRI commented, “Dr. Verghese Kurien was a thinker, social sector revolutionary, who ideated the world's biggest agricultural development programme turning India into one of the largest milk producers in the world. The oration in his memory has been instituted with the aim to commemorate his legacy through propagating and disseminating the idea of an empowered, equitable and sustainable society. We are extremely happy to have Mr. Bunker Roy delivering the 2nd “Dr Verghese Kurien Memorial Oration”. Mr. Roy, an eminent social innovator has gained numerous recognitions for his contribution for rural Indians, having spent five years working as an unskilled labour digging wells in the villages during the Bihar famine.”

“Dr. Verghese Kurien Memorial Oration on Sustainable Development is our humble initiative to pay tribute to the great visionary,” said Prof. Madhukar Shukla, Chairperson of XLRI’s Fr Arrupe Center for Ecology & Sustainability. “With this annual oration, we aim to inspire and inculcate values of entrepreneurial spirit in budding business leaders and social entrepreneurs”, he added.
