FTI article on Purple Beret

Vice Admiral (Retd.) V Bharathan (a member of FTI) has recently wrote about his early experience of FTI on  purpleberet.com, an online platform linking the armed forces to the Indian society, communicating the forces’ ethos to civil society at large.

Excerpts from his article: "FTI strikes a chord and tugs at our thoughts. It opens our minds to our true potential and immense possibilities for India. It asks us for no sacrifice but only seeks to spread awareness of what we can and ought to do as ordinary Indians. It is an overarching concept that can evolve into a process of pragmatic, progressive change for the betterment of Akand Bharat across the spectrum of Nation management."
