From His Thoughts

  • This process of modernization cannot merely demonstrate to producers the application of such techniques as artificial insemination, improved animal feeding etc. On the contrary, it inevitably shows the producers that they can use modern science and technology to achieve the larger objectives of their own lives.

  • Milk is the only commodity which has to be collected twice a day, every day of the year. Thus, cooperatives are the only logical system for the dairy industry. About 85% of the industry in the US, Denmark and Australia is run by cooperatives. No other system will work for milk.

  • What you need is good management with farmer power. Good management gives this power the right direction and thrust.Nothing can stop the farmers then. Least of all the MNCs.

  • 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.

  • All the tools are with us, in our Hands, to effect the transformation of our predominantly rural society. Never has an elite had such an opportunity.

  • True development is not the development of land, or of cows; it is the development of men and women.

  • To be quite honest, service to our nation's farmers was not the career I had envisioned for myself. But somehow, a series of events swept me along and put me in a certain place at a certain time when I had to choose between one option and another.

  • 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.

  • 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.
