From His Thoughts

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • Innovation cannot be mandated or forced on people; it is everywhere, a function of the quality of the people and the environment. We need to have enough skilled people working in a self- actuating environment to produce innovation

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
