Contesting polls is a costly affair. State funding on a per vote basis is a simple solution to encourage competent people to join politics.

Senior leader, Swarna Bharat Party, India's only liberal party
Introduction

Please consider reading this interview before reading further.

I was an Indian bureaucrat

I joined the Indian Administrative Service (IAS) in September 1982. In that role I held many senior executive positions in the public sector such as the District Magistrate of Dhubri, Professor of Management (Deputy Director) at the National Academy of Administration, and Secretary to the Governments of Assam and Meghalaya.

Now I'm a political philosopher and Indian politician

My role in the Indian bureaucracy gave me an inside understanding of our governance system through close interaction with India's bureaucratic and political elite. As I studied the issues further, including through further academic study, it became clear to me that India's failures of governance arise from bad policy. It is notpoor implementation that causes India's problems - for bad policy can NEVER be implemented "properly" in the first place. Bad policy that is to blame for at least 99% our governance failures. That is a key insight that most 'educated' Indians still don't have.

In February 1998 I concluded that our bad policies can't (and won't) be changed by our existing political or bureaucratic leaders. I therefore needed to join (or form) a (classical) national liberal political party and become a part of a political alternative to transform India's governance using evidence-based world-best policies

In pursuit of this goal I resigned from the IAS in January 2001 [India Today report].

Since then I have worked towards the reform of India's governance from the "outside" - as a politician. 

I'm not a typical politician but a political philosopher and politician nevertheless - focused entirely on forming government in India. I am convinced that no existing political formation or leader provides India with the kind ofviable solution that I do. I am therefore determined to work with you to reform India. 

But you may well ask in bewilderment: "But how can you be (or become) an Indian politician when you are not even an Indian citizen?" I agree that you have good reason to ask this! For late in 2005, after three failed attempts to form a liberal political opposition [see this, for instance], I decided that given the lack of interest among Indians for good governance I should quit this ambition and take Australian citizenship. 

However, I soon also took Overseas Indian citizenship which entitles me to "recover" my Indian citizenship within one year, should - in my lifetime - India actually want to become a modern, ethically governed prosperous nation.

In late 2007 I revived the political strategy with a revised platform (Freedom Team). Should I receive CLEAR signals that India needs me, I will return to India, resume my Indian citizenship, and contest elections. The window of time for that is now rapidly shrinking, however: just another ten or fifteen years remain, outside of which I will not be able to (physically) participate in the political process in India.

My detailed political plans are outlined here and here.

Why do I matter (to you)?

What I bring is critically important for your survival and success in IndiaI offer the ONLY viable solution to India's pathetic mis-governance (Breaking Free of Nehru).

All other alternatives have failed - and will fail. Socialism, colonial bureaucracies, communalism: none can succeed.  Other alternative efforts - including those of Baba Ramdev (or even JP of Lok Satta), that don't focus SOLELY on increasing freedom (subject to accountability) - could well create more problems for India than they (may) solve.

It is therefore in your interest to join hands with me - with the Freedom Team of India, where leaders who will offer India a truly modern governance system are now assembling. Please support FTI in every way that you can.

More about me

Almost everything about me is publicly available - so you can check my authenticity and credibility. For instance, you can find out more about me here. My educational and career history is detailed here (on Linkedin). 

Most importantly, however, please read my book/s and writings to understand me (and my vision for India) better. If you wish, you can browse through these blog posts that have some autobiographical content.

Given limited financial resources, I actively use the internet to reach out to those who are interested in a better India. You can easily find me on Facebook,TwitterPlaxo,MyspaceSulekhaOrkutShelfari,Yahoo, and Google Page. I'm here to help you help yourself.
