Have you always wanted to do some real action to change India? Have you ever wanted to clean politics? Are you a liberal? Well, here is your change to make a real difference to the system. The Freedom Team of India.
The Freedom Team of India was started in 2009. Here is how they describe themselves:
FTI is a not-for-profit trust created on 1 July 2009. Its primary objective is to act as a forum for policy, strategy, and leadership development to promote the freedoms of the great peoples of India.
Members of FTI are committed to contest elections in India in due course, with appropriate preparation.They hope to offer their leadership to India along with a set of world-best policies, thus seeking to directly contribute to India’s governance. It may be noted that FTI is NOT a political party. Such electoral activity, when it occurs, will be carried out separately and not under FTI’s banner.
The most striking thing about FTI is their clarity about contesting elections. I have always believed that politics is a very essential and powerful tool to inspire change and th system can not be changed without changing the state of Indian politics. Although, everyone talks about how bad Indian politics is but not many people dare to enter the murky waters of Politics. The fact that these people have committed to doing so, does say a lot about their resolve.
Another thing that I like about them is their focus on developing leaders. There is definitely a leadership deficit in the current system and that is not good. India needs visionaries who can give a direction to the restless young India and leaders who can inspire the masses. The new India needs strong leaders, and this is a welcome step in the process especially considering that many of these people will be walking the corridors of power in the near future.
The sad part is that you need to be 21 to be a part of the team :( but I guess the age restriction does make sense.
So, what are you waiting for? This is you chance to change India. Make a real difference. Join the team!
