From His Thoughts

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

  • 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).

  • 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

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.
