Chanced upon JP's talk at TEDx last year.
How many members of the audience DID anything after this talk?
To the middle class this was just one more nice "event" to attend. A show for the evening. Like any other dance/film show. A way to spend the evening, then go home, have a drink and dinner, and forget that JP ever existed.
How many members of the audience heeded JP's call (not as forthright as I'd have liked it to be) to join politics?
FTI recently had an outreach even in Pune. How many of the audience members cared to join FTI after that event? So far none.
The middle class – which generates political leaders across the world – is impotent in India. It simply doesn't ACT.
