To nourish the next generation of Indian children, we need to support their nurturers, said Prabhu Pingali, professor of applied economics and management and founding director of the new Tata-Cornell Agriculture and Nutrition Initiative (TCi).

In an Oct. 2, 2013 presentation, Pingali outlined his vision for TCi, a long-term project established through a $25 million endowment from Ratan Tata '59, B.Arch. '62, chair of Tata Trusts.

Pingali's main goal is to reduce stunting and malnutrition in Indian children by focusing on their mothers.
