Today, only one name comes to my mind when I think Leadership.
Anna Hazare- a retired armyman, a social activist, who is fighting at this time against the government of India for an Anti-corruption bill. India is the biggest democracy of the world, and unfortunately one of the most corrupt as well.
The above link gives a brief introduction to what a leader like himself has and delivers.
It is all about stepping forward, thinking beyond the status quo, envisioning, and motivating. Everyday Indians, read the news, and curse the politicians to be corrupt, and how they are hampering India's growth. Some came forward and were thrown back.
But this to me is an example of unmatched leadership, emerging one out of more than a billion, able to motivate even the ones in power, for the benifit of all.
Yes, today after a four-day fast, he has been single-handedly able to provoke the government to accept his proposal, and this is what he calls 'The victory of the people of India'.
My salute to the leader of India's second struggle for independence..
