From His Thoughts

  • 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.

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

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

  • Sardar Vallabhai Patel's vision has always been a source of great inspiration. He knew that our rural people could never become really free until they were liberated from the exploitation of moneylenders. Sardar Patel believed that the way to address these problems was to build rural institutions that would serve the farmers' economic interests. He urged dairy farmers to organize milk cooperatives, which would give them control over the resources they generated and assigned Morarji Desai, his Deputy, to coordinate this effort.

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

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