Three Leadership Styles and Their Relevance in Today’s Time. Bhagat Singh, Subhash Chandra Bose and Mahatma Gandhi…
Let’s first pay a tribute to these three Icons which changed the thought process of Indian masses that too at a time when they were living under a role conflict. These three icons of Indian history has changed the course of the thought process of Indian masses and now has this value that they can be considered as an uncrowned sect of Indian society thriving under the flag of our country. Their leadership styles are relevant even now. They have this gravity to move the masses even now. We can search a role model in them in the current perspective as well.
It is fantasy land of the Hindi films that gave us this courage to make a statement like this. If we go by the social impact theories of Hindi cinema then year 2006 can be considered as the year of awakening where two films hit the screen after a small interval and galvanized the thought process of Indian youths a big way. These two films were “Rang De Basanti” and “Lage Raho Munna Bhai”. Both these films were contrast to each other but still they were equally loved by the same generations because they touch the core of our hearts.
The same decade is also blessed with a film made by respected film maker Mr. Shayam Benegal who tried to capture a biopic of the life and times of great leader Subhash Chandra Bose. Now this film too had all those elements to bring in that catharsis of sorts although we are living in a different era. The thumping success of these films shows that these leaders are relevant in 21st century and we need to relook their style of leadership all over again and steal a few leafs from their book.
Three Streams That Galvanized India and We Became One Powerful Stream
Bhagat Singh and Mahatma Gandhi both were against the British laws. Both were keen to break the rules which were captivating the thought process of common Indians, both were there to set an example and spread the message. Their paths were different but their intentions were same. Some people may say that the ways of Bhagat Singh were violent and more aggressive. But never forget, he never ran away, he faced the trial of British Government and made it a mass vehicle to communicate his thoughts.
They say that late Mr. Gandhi was not aggressive; we do not agree with this, he was aggressive in his own way. Facing the torture without retaliating is a form of aggression; it shows your inner strength. The best part is the fact that they have galvanized the masses, means an ordinary person started to understand the fact that he is an important part of the system and he can change the system. Now when we see it from the perspective of Shri Subhash Chandra Bose then he was a leader whose eyes were all set up for a big change which was going to take place in the world scenario and he wanted to cash on that in the favour of Indian masses.
Current Leadership of India Too Needs This Type of Vision and Strong Means To Bring a Person in the Mainstream of the Events
Indians feel ashamed when somebody tells them that they perform really well on the index of the corruption and they are in the top 10. Indians feel ashamed when they say that first world countries are not happy with their hygiene levels. Indians never feel proud that they are the youngest country in this world which is all set to inflict their soft powers on the world and change the thought process of the world in the coming future. Indians never feel proud that they are the strongest work force.
Yes they are a force to be recon. If Subhash Chandra Bose could assembled an army,and Bhagat Singh and Mahatma Gandhi galvanized a generation to act like an army. Therefore, in times like this all Indians are already an army. We are a liberated army which can be victories on any corporate or business front. We can deliver under all sort of economic pressures and deliver international standard goods even when we are working under sub standard conditions.
We need leaders, we need paths, and we need thought process that can channelize us
See the use of this word “we” in above heading, thrice we used “WE” because it is general craving, everybody wants to contribute for the betterment of our country. Our ancestors fought against the imperialism and colonist. We have that battle running in our blood and genetic codes. Even if we don’t have means to channelize them. We do need to create consensus in order to reclaim legacy which we were known for.
It Is an Open Invitation for the Current Clan of the Leaders to Join Us
You might have been thinking that there is something wrong with the sentence that we have blotted in the place of heading. Leaders invite people, people don’t invite leaders and it is the other way round. No, it is not it is the same as we are saying. Leaders identify the needs of the people and bring them under one roof or umbrella. This is a responsibility of the masses to come up with their problems more up frontally and we are sure that current clan of leaders will listen to them.
The time has come when we need to give them this impression that masses are moving ahead and if the current leadership is not in sync with them then in this case they will be thrown out of the window. Loksabha elections of 2014 gave us this indication when it was a clean sweep against the ruling government. Repeat of the Delhi elections in 2015 also repeated the same history when people chose some leaders who were well in sync with them.
Time Has Come When We Need To Feel the Power of Bhagat Singh, Gandhi and Subhash Chandra Bose Which Lies In Us
The statement that we are going to make now is not subjected to any particular political party or sect or any group of free thinkers. We are proud that we are carrying this legacy of three great leadership streams in the form of Gandhi, Bhagat Singh and Subhash Chandra Bose. Now we need to first identify our issues and then address our leaders that are they ready to mend their ways and join us in the main stream. Gandhi, Bhagat Singh and Subhash Chandra Bose teach us this principle of “EKLA CHALO RE”. They never tell us to follow leaders. They told us to be a free will thinker like them.
We are leaving this debate on a very crucial note here whereby we want to raise this question on behalf of every Indian who is reading this blog…why should I follow a system and look up to the leaders and administrators, if I am sure that my ways, my convictions are strong enough then why I cannot make them look up to me? In the true spirit of leadership that these great leaders taught us I would like to say that time has come when we need to set new role models for our current clan of leaders and tell them that though we are living under stressed environments yet we are so powerful to think for a better society and more powerful and prosperous country.
