In a democratic country like India, we don't elect a commander but we elect a leader because he is the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. Politics is not the only source of producing leaders.
Leaders become great not due to their power but due to their ability to empower others. A leader is not a person who commands and drives his employees, he is a person who listens to the people, gives advice and helps them reach the top. It does not matter whether a leader was born in a rich family or he came from a humble background. However, the common similarities they have are —self-awareness, empathy, critical and creative thinking, decision making, problem-solving, effective communication and coping with stress and emotion
In a democratic country like India, we don’t elect a commander but we elect a leader because he is the one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way. Politics is not the only source of producing leaders. They can range from different walks of life. There are many examples of such personalities such as Angela Merkel, Warren Buffett, Mahatma Gandhi, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, Mother Teresa etc.
India has always been an ardent supporter of ideas of democracy, justice, liberty, equality and fraternity. That is the reason these values and skills have been reinstalled by leaders since our independence as the culture of Indian society across the time frames. Even in our Sanskrit texts, it is mentioned that whatever values and skills a leader shows and practices these are adopted by his followers. Hence a strong leader leads to the foundation of a strong nation.
