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.

  • In every successful grassroots cooperative, members trust their leaders. Trust is the most cost-effective way to manage cooperatives.

  • 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.

  • Who told you there is one Amul? There are more than 175 Amuls across various districts (in Gujarat).

  • I am in the business of empowerment. Milk is just a tool in that.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
