Utterly butterly delicious...

What started as "Operation Flood" in two village cooperatives, will now be the world's largest milk brand.

Anand Milk Union Ltd or AMUL as we all know it was started in 1970 by the National Dairy Development Board to resolve malpractices by the milk traders and merchants. From 250 litres of milk to 48 lakhs litres of milk per day has been a long journey

"Think big, start small" is what they say !!!

The power of the masses

If you remember, nine of the accused were left scot free in Jessica Lall murder case. The verdict was strongly opposed by the masses and the court was forced to reopen the case under public pressure. For all her socialite status and influential contacts, Bina Ramani has been issued a non-bailable warrant for cheating and forgery and has been sent to Tihar jail on a for 2 weeks, with no special previleges bestowed.

"Today she was admitted to Jail No 6, the women's jail. She is kept in the in the reception ward there. No special arrangement has been made for her accommodation"

This makes you believe that all is not lost in this world. And the voice of the common public does get a hearing, even if not everytime. So next time, do not hesitate to speak up !!!
