Indira Gandhi was a strong leader but she is very soft with poor people. She never behaved rudely with such people. She helped them a lot. But she is very adamant and declared an emergency when there was a problem in the country. Like that, I feel leaders who can show all types of emotions as required will only come up.
But selfish people are very dangerous as leaders. Present-day majority of leaders are selfish. If a selfless leader try to be a little strict , the other leaders never cooperate with him.
" Be Good and Do Good "
In modern age 'a smart liar' is the quality of a good leader and the amazing thing is people like lies of their leaders.
As far as strong leaders are concerned I think three leaders can be considered as bold and brave.
Lal Bahadur Shastri
Sonia Gandhi (Man Mohan Singh)
Lal Bahadur Shastri did not accept the proposal of the US government during the 1965 war
Indra Gandhi sent an army to Bangladesh to liberate from Pakistan.
Also, she refused to meet President Nickson when she was in the UN general assembly.
Sonia Gandhi (ManMohan Singh) deprived US embassy staff including Ambassador of their special rights when an Indian embassy officer was mistreated by police in the US.
