Recalling the Contributions of M S Swaminathan (1925–2023)

A leading agriculture scientist, humanist, and institution builder, M S Swaminathan passed away on 28 September 2023. The best way to honour him and his rich legacy is by continuing his unfinished mission of eradicating malnutrition with more determination and vigour.

Ahumanist, an institution builder, a visionary, a person with a mis-        sion, all these epithets apply to M S Swaminathan, who passed away on 28 September 2023. He would have turned 100 in another two years. The father of India’s green revolution, Swaminathan was recognised by Time magazine in 1999 as one of Asia’s 20 most influential thinkers of the 20th century, M K Gandhi and Rabind­ranath Tagore being the two other Indians on the list. A recipient of numerous awards, accolades, and honorary doctorates, he strode tall as a committed and relentless crusader for ending hunger and malnutrition across the world.
