I trust, in a humble way - dairying is such as instrument of change: an instrument not only of technical change, but also of economic and social change. It is to such instruments that we must look to build the India tomorrow.
India's place in the sun would come from the partnership between wisdom of its rural people and skill of its professionals
The milk of India is produced by millions of small and marginal farmers and landless labourers'. It is on their behalf and in their name that i accept this high honour.
True development is not the development of land, or of cows; it is the development of men and women.
