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.

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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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).
