Gandhi the Eternal Leader
The perception of Gandhiji in most people’s minds is the towering idea of the Mahatma (great soul), who powered India to freedom through non-violence. Gandhi was the ultimate leader. He had the ability to inspire others to action and to greatness, develop a band of people, who would go well beyond the call of duty.
Gandhi had a clear vision and purpose, and it manifested in all he did. The success of a simple life metaphor – salt, leading to the Dandi March, more than established his capability as a brilliant strategist. Gandhiji operated on values and principles, which were non-negotiable. He was able to marry high ethical values along with brilliant strategy, and then walk the talk, always leading from the front.
