Borlaug Memorial

A&M will host a Normal Borlaug memorial today at 11am, which can be streamed off www.kbtx.com

Among speakers today will be Dr. MS Swaminathan, ( a living legend in India) who recognized the potential of the Mexican Dwarf varieties which Dr. Borlaug had worked on. Dr. Swaminathan's contribution to the green revolution are nothing short of extraordinary. It might well be worth hearing them speak on the live stream if not go to the real thing.

I will be tuning in because I do not have the time to make it to the actual memorial.
This article in Rediff where Dr. MS Swaminathan reminisces about Prof. Borlaug. Quite touching.
