NATIONAL MILK DAY

B +Ve!!

National Milk Day (India) : 26 November

Verghese Kurien (26 November 1921 – 9 September 2012), known as the “Father of the White Revolution” in India, was a social entrepreneur whose “billion-litre idea”, Operation Flood, made dairy farming India’s largest self-sustaining industry and the largest rural employment sector providing a third of all rural income. It made India the world’s largest milk producer, doubled the milk available for each person, and increased milk output four-fold in 30 years.

He pioneered the Anand model of dairy cooperatives and replicated it nationwide, based on various “top-down” and “bottom-up” approaches, where no milk from a farmer was refused and 70–80% of the price by consumers was paid in cash to dairy farmers who controlled the marketing, procurement, and processing of milk and milk products as the dairy’s owners. An invention at Amul was the production of milk powder from buffalo milk instead of…

CHANGE

Hannes van Eeden

“We cannot become what we want by remaining what we are.”

Change is the only constant in life. Change is about moving forward and avoiding stagnation. Whether we like it or not. It’s best to embrace change and maybe even seek it out. Hence why seeking discomfort plays such a huge role in my life.

TRUSTING GOD’S PROVIDENCE

Feeling God's Pleasure

Some of the best years of my life were spent during my ministry training in Southern California. Soon after arriving, I joined a ministry for young working singles. Though I had no interest at all in finding a wife at that time, I found it immensely entertaining watching some of the antics going on with those who did. The double dates, blind dates, surprise dates – I’ve seen the lot.

Then there are those who insist on finding a partner “the biblical way.”  I’ve always wanted to know what that means.  Take the passage we will be looking at today in Genesis chapter 24 for example.  If we use this as a lesson on finding a partner, you’d conclude by going to the local watering hole; when an attractive young woman arrives, ask her for a drink.  If she offers to water all your camels, put a ring in her…
