"I will cite another interesting conversation between S .K. Dey, the then Minister of State for Community Development and renowned Gandhian economist J.C.Kumarappa at Kallupatti in early 1956. The Minister told Kumarappa about the great success of Community Development Programme by citing the figures of achievement in various programmes.
Kumarappa reacted to it sharply by stating that “ Mr. Dey before I cover a particular area with the Community Development Programme I would count the ribs on a few persons and if after three years of work there is some flesh to cover those ribs , I will cal it a success”. He added further “you are attempting to throw a silk shirt on a hungry person; you will never succeed”
