Prime Minister of India Pays Glowing Tributes to Dr. Yunus
Prime Minister of India, Dr. Manmohan Singh joins the world leaders to eulogise the icon of micro-credit, Dr Muhammad Yunus. “Professor Yunus is truly an exceptional human being and it is really a privilege to be in his company,” the celebrated leader of the world’s largest democracy declared while addressing the Joint Meeting of the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha of the Indian Parliament on December 9, 2009 while inviting Dr.Yunus to deliver his address on the occasion of the Second Professor Hiren Mukerjee Memorial Lecture.

To the select gathering, which included Vice-President of India, Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Congress President Sonia Gandhi, BJP leader Ram Krisna Advani, Governors, Members of Parliament and other distinguished guests, Dr. Manmohan Singh said, “Professor Yunus has revolutionized the idea of micro-credit and made it accessible to the poorest of the poor”.

Dr Singh, an economist and a litterateur in his own right, went on to quote an Urdu  couplet to underscore the great power of ideas propounded by Dr. Yunus: “Main Akela Hi Chala Tha Janebe Manjil, Magar Log Milte Gaye Aur Caravan Banta Gaya!”—I began my journey alone in quest of my destination, but people joined me and turned it into a caravan.
