A friend sent in this video. Truly remarkable. I never thought about such a role ("first follower"), but it touches a deep chord in human nature and shows how important it is to encourage someone who sticks his neck out.
The video also tells me that FTI will succeed. As soon as a few people start raising their hands and standing up to lead (and many already have!), all other liberal leaders in India will join in. Guaranteed.
A tipping point is the next step for FTI now. Once it is reached, the reform movement can begin.
