Thoughts on economics and liberty

The fight for liberty is hard – but we must join hands to fight every inch of the way

My email sent out to a few people across India. Please share this post with anyone who could help:

===EMAIL ===

As you know, Swarna Bharat Party is India’s only party that fights for your liberty and basic human rights. All other political parties are hardcore socialists determined to further destroy India – India could have easily been richer than Singapore had we followed capitalism.

SBP is fighting elections in the next month. We need funds to compete in elections against corrupt “mainstream” political parties.

Please visit to find out more.

If we can generate Rs.2-3 lakhs in the next two weeks we stand a good chance of winning our first seat at the panchayat level. Once we have won a single seat, we’ll gain greater force and credibility for the future.

The hard work of at least 20 years – with the message of liberty shared at the grassroots for the first time in India’s history –  is now coming to its first major test. Winning seats in the Bhadohi elections is crucial.

Please chip in!! Even Rs.1000 will help.

Appeal to my Indian citizen friends – to chip in a bit for INDIA’S ONLY LIBERAL PARTY


As you know, in January 2001 I gave up the life of privilege in the IAS in order to fight for the liberty of everyday Indians.
Since August 2016 I have succeeded – with the help of a team of like-minded Indians – to get India’s first liberal party – even superior to Swatantra Party – off the ground. The grassroots work that started in a village in Bhadohi district has now spread across India.

Now, after nearly 5 years of hard work, we will be contesting a handful of seats in Bhadohi and in the adjoining Mirzapur district during the forthcoming local government (panchayat) elections.

And we’ll contest at least one seat in the forthcoming Assam assembly elections.

If you can spare even 500 rupees this will go a long way in supporting this extraordinarily challenging work.

It is crucial for us to start winning elections. Any money that can be contributed immediately will go a long way in increasing the chances of winning the elections in the face of competition from criminal political parties that spend crores during elections.

Do you want a great India? Please spend a little bit of your money. It will support your own future – for there is simply no alternative for India but to get a major national liberal party.

The 2006 email that changed India (or, rather, will change India in the coming years)

In 2005 I had completely ended my India political project. Just finishing up a book, later to be called BFN.

But then Anil Sharma comes out of the blue – wanting to establish a liberal political party in India.  Meghnad Desai connected him to Gurcharan Das and Gurcharan connected him to me on  7 February 2006. In seven years time, Swarna Bharat Party was born. Without Anil’s determination and persistence, there would be no liberal party in India today.

Given his insistence on having a liberal party and my experience that the greatest shortage is of leaders to kickstart the work, I resumed India-related (Freedom Team of India) to support Anil and find others like him.

We were able to find some superb leaders – like Dipinder Sekhon, Rahul Pandit and Kamal Sharma (and Ram Atri, who has, however, quit political work subsequently), as a result of which SBP was formed through a rather circuitous route that went via Baba Ramdev.

There were others who were initially part of the FTI journey but who fell by the wayside for their personal (e.g. health) reasons, like Supratim Basu, or who decided that short-term methods (like joining AAP, which a few like Somnath Bharti and Shantanu Bhagwat tried; others like LK Kandpal went on to support BJP) can work.

But by now, SBP is firmly established and is not going anywhere. And after its establishment, many outstanding leaders like Sanjay Sonawani, Sanjay Garg and Pankaj Das have joined. And superb young leaders like Rabi Kant Bharti and Mahesh Maurya have come up. There are tens of others, as well – all over the country, supporting this work in some way or other (you’ll excuse me if I don’t name all of them in this brief post).

The party is now on a roll. It is going nowhere. It is here to change India.


I let the Liberal Party website lapse (can’t keep paying for so many websites). The page in 2005 looked like this:
