Resuming regular membership of Freedom Team of India after a 5-month sabbatical
In the meanwhile, FTI managed to continue to evolve.
I did actively implement FTI's political strategy (e.g. Rule of Law Front/ Hope Summit) and have evolved it till the point when a significant advance is likely to be announced in the liberal political space in India in the coming days.
I will now revert to FTI more actively to help strengthen it from within.
FTI remains as relevant as ever before, even as some of its members (e.g. Shantanu Bhagwat) have left to join AAP which leads to their automatic termination of FTI membership.
FTI's relevance relates to the fact that India continues to face a shortage of good leaders. More particularly, it faces a severe shortage of leaders committed to liberty and truth. AAP is not committed to either of these, so FTI members can't join AAP. (Just like they can't join Congress or BJP, etc.)
But FTI members can join Lok Satta Party, Swarna Bharat Party, Swatantra Bharat Party and Navbharat Party (and possibly Jago Party – but that has to be confirmed).
We still need to find 1500 top class leaders in India. That long term project is not going to end on any given day. It will be a constant, never-ending project of rejuvenation of India.
