50 Times Amul Won Our Hearts With Its Brilliant Print Ads

Sylvester daCunha and Eustace Fernandes created the Amul baby to rival the Polson girl in 1965. Kurien, the head of Amul gave them a free hand to make these ads and this "blessing" has  stayed with Sylvester's son Rahul daCunha who heads the advertising firm now.
