Transparency Revolution: Are the Armed Forces and ESM Organisations in the loop?

A transparency revolution is on, but India not ready, says Antony
In a fresh take on the corruption debate, Defence Minister A K Antony on Wednesday said that the nation is going through a “transparency revolution” and while there is some resistance by those who wield power, the transition to more openness cannot be stopped.
The minister said the transition is facing problems as those in key positions are still not ready for more transparency. “There is transition everywhere now, transition to this transparency revolution. India is not ready, Indian society is not ready, politicians, business people, bureaucrats, journalists, armed forces... all those holding key positions in India are still not ready for this transition,” Antony, known for his strong anti- corruption stance, said.
Antony said that while there are “some problems” in this transition period, this is another phase of the Indian democracy. “After a few years, this (resistance) will settle but transition will go on and I am very happy about it,” the minister said. He was speaking to the media after inaugurating a new conference hall at the Press Club of India.

Welfare Organisations for Veterans
Most of these Organisations like AWHO, CSD (I), Military Sponsored Clubs, Sainik Boards, ECHS needs to gear up to meet the aspirations and challenges of the Veterans. Even few ESM Organisations with laudable mission statement on paper do not inspire; as the governing bodies, who wield power do not want to let go- like the sports bodies!
