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.
I am supposed to exploit the consumer; and I will (exploit them), but not in a way that will create resentment. I have to milk the consumer. And milk them I will, but gently.
India needs to show an honest face, a kind face, a human face - and not an arrogant face as the powerful nations of today (do).
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.

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.
