Will we ever have any leader in the Gandhian mould?Volumes have been written about Mahatma Gandhi. There are Post-graduate courses on Gandhian thought. In the USA, he is the subject of research by dozens of Sociologists. And Mahatma Gandhi was perhaps a good economist as well.
For, it is he who said that for a man with an empty stomach, food is God. And it was he who first talked about practical economics when he said that there is enough for everybody's need but not for everybody's greed. And was right on target. The global ambitions of China and the USA is now threatening the borders of any countries and billions of dollars will be spent on purchasing deadly weapons. However, do we have in our own country, any leader who has such selfless attitudes and mass appeal to the collective consciousness of people?
One is not even able to understand the arrogance of someone who goes right against fundamental rights when he declares that those employing people of his State need his permission to employ them!! Where is our country going and what will happen if others also start speaking the same language?
When can we find another Mahatma Gandhi?
