    Every man should try to do his best to excel himself in whatever field he is required to do work. India has six Nobel prize winners viz. Sir C. V. Raman for Science  , Rabindranath Tagore for literature, Mother Teresa for Peace, Amateya Sen for Economics. Bharat Ratna and other awards are also given in appreciation of excellent work done in various fields. In the field of international game, India has distinguished herself in the game of hockey, for some years in the past and had maintained a tradition of winning the Gold Medal which, it lost at Olympic at Montreal. No doubt India has some of the outstanding dancers and singers of international fame and reputation, but contribution in this field can be improved.

     There are many other fields where it will not be possible for any individual to do without cooperation of others. In the field of industry, commerce, business the work can be done by forming Co-operative Societies. The co-operative movement was primarily intended to liberate the Indian villager from the clutches of local money lenders and to promote the habit of thrift among the rural population. When India became independent, the co-operative movement was sick and dying. But the Government decided to put co-operation back on its legs. Various efforts were made in this direction. The Committee was appointed by the Reserve Bank of India in 1955 which made a comprehensive survey of co-operative credit to agriculture. They made various recommendations in the interests of the rural population, generally and the rural producer in particular.
