“A Fitting Tribute”: Ex WHO Chief Scientist On Bharat Ratna To Father

The family is very happy and delighted with the honour, said Dr Soumya Swaminathan, former chief scientist of WHO and the daughter of noted agricultural scientist MS Swaminathan who was honoured with the Bharat Ratna today. “Naturally we are very happy, delighted and feel honoured that he has been honoured with the highest civilian award of the country that is given to the country’s most eminent citizens. I think it’s a fitting tribute for somebody who spent his whole life working for the country. So it’s a very happy and wonderful day today,” she said.
