From His Thoughts

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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).

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

  • 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.

  • I am supposed to exploit the consumer; and I will (exploit them), but not in a way that will create resentment. I have to milk the consumer. And milk them I will, but gently.
