Leader is the custodian of interests!A leader is one who leads from the front with his vision and not by slogans. Charisma or eloquence doesn't make a leader. It's his honesty and sincerity that makes him a leader. Leadership demands certain skills and not everyone possess those skills.
A leader should be a great decision maker and courageous enough to make decisions. We have seen so many leaders but a successful leader is one who cares well, maintains the rectitude and honour of his people. He will not leave any stone unturned to uphold the integrity and honour of people. A leader always respects the sacrifices of his subordinates and does not subjugate their sacrifices for the benefit of his own vested interests. Even in India we had and still have some great leaders to lead the nation to the highest level.
Being a leader is a challenging task and yes, it is not everyone's cup of tea! A leader must be patient and open to criticism. A leader should be brave and inform the nation of developments and policies that he may be working on. A leader is like a one-man army, strong to take action and firm on his decision; not allowing anyone to hamper his vision of taking his nation forward.
We are a brave nation and need a brave leader to carry the mission of equality, integrity and sovereignty of our nation. A sincere leader doesn't intimidate its own people or threaten them to kill.
A leader is the guardian and custodian of its people and nation. A leader can't distinguish communities based on cast or creed. May we get one who can uphold this integrity and brotherhood in our country.
