Even this challenging situation would ease

However, now the scenarios have changed even the temperaments of leaders have changed significantly. They have even the connections with the criminal people. Majority of leaders are in the habit of amassing wealth with unfair means. They have even lost their credibilities due to their unfair means. They are no more regarded as the great heroes of the time despite their victories in the elections with the connivance of the wrong people.
So, we are witnessing real hero worship during the Modi era. And this, one, as a common man with neutral and balanced views, can say without an iota of doubt, is not at all good for democracy. It is in fact, dangerous because such a system can ultimately pave the way for a dictatorship where everyone just listens to one man and nobody dares to question.
We do have some such examples at the regional level too but there too the influence and power does have certain limits.
'Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power'. -Lao Tzu
Many parties go by family rule. The chief of the party will be always from the party and the chief will be the hero. I see this family leadership in national parties also. Only there is no family rule in BJP. Today Modi is their hero. Tomorrow another person may become their hero but not from Modi's family. But even in BJP also there is hero worship. The Chief of the party or the PM is their Hero. I think in India we can't avoid it.
