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.

  • The time has come for massive rural development in our country. The task is daunting and the opposing is great, but I believe that it is also the greatest opportunity that has ever been presented to a society such as ours.

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • India's place in the sun would come from the partnership between wisdom of its rural people and skill of its professionals

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • 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.
