In every successful grassroots cooperative, members trust their leaders. Trust is the most cost-effective way to manage cooperatives.
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.
India's place in the sun would come from the partnership between wisdom of its rural people and skill of its professionals
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.
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.
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.
I am in the business of empowerment. Milk is just a tool in that.
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.
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.
