From His Thoughts

  • 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.

  • I was fortunate that I enjoyed the support of all the governments that came to power. I have been and continue to be, highly critical of our bureaucracy. Fortunately for us, within our bureaucracy, there are a number of people who are dedicated, patriotic and able.

  • My philosophy in life is to do as much good as I can to those who are less fortunate, but I would like to live my life as a common man.

  • Who told you there is one Amul? There are more than 175 Amuls across various districts (in Gujarat).

  • I am like a cat, throw me wherever you want to, I will still stand on my feet Eight hours for dairy, eight hours for family and eight hours for sleep.

  • If we can again create the environment, the opportunity, and the education, our villages will provide a new generation of leaders who will not only rebuild our cooperative movement, but who will help us to build a truly great nation.

  • Sardar Vallabhai Patel's vision has always been a source of great inspiration. He knew that our rural people could never become really free until they were liberated from the exploitation of moneylenders. Sardar Patel believed that the way to address these problems was to build rural institutions that would serve the farmers' economic interests. He urged dairy farmers to organize milk cooperatives, which would give them control over the resources they generated and assigned Morarji Desai, his Deputy, to coordinate this effort.

  • I am in the business of empowerment. Milk is just a tool in that.

  • In every successful grassroots cooperative, members trust their leaders. Trust is the most cost-effective way to manage cooperatives.

  • 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.
