Hope you all are doing well.

We all look up to our leaders and are also motivated by their stature and the way they take care of their followers.
Going back in time there were great leaders who have lead people in the right directions which have helped to make this world a better place to live.
Historically there are many people who were great leaders and their legacy is being taken as an example till date talks about Karana oh! What a great worrier he was. He fought till the end and gave away everything that he was asked including his divine shield which was a divine gift. That is one of the qualities of a leader non-materialism or sacrifice.
Recently I read a random article about the correlation between mythology and logic, the funny part is that recently when my cousin visited he actually suggested writing a blog based on almost this same topic but, highlighting leaders.
So what is the correlation between the almighty sun and a leader, well I have read in the history books which often contain some poetic lines like: “here comes the leader who shines as bright as the sun” now why do they say that why is a leader compared to the sun? Well, I was thinking about it for some time and these thoughts uttered to my mind.
The sun is selfless, for him, the first priority is always shining to give light and this shining takes lot of his strength because he burns himself up to shine for us, similarly, a leader is a person who believes in helping his people first and lead them in the right direction he will think about himself lastly after he has helped his people in whatever it is required to be done.
The sun is a mighty star placed millions of lightyears away from our mother earth, but still, each and every being on this earth is dependent on the sun, to be clear we can say without hesitation that without the sun there is no life, imagine a day of darkness! all that breaths depend on energy on the sun and he is the only one capable of supporting life.
After talking about the sun, little peek inside mankind, there were many kings who were seriously great leaders Pritiviraj Chauhan, Sri KrishnaDevaraya the Wodeyars of Mysore, Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte, Chandraguptha Maurya and so all of these above-mentioned leaders share some common qualities like ambition, challenging self, the zeal to win a battle and above all giving their lives to their people and helping them enjoy a better life.
I feel most of the present leaders have forgotten these basic lessons of being a front-runner and end up in just getting criticised from their people for their lack of duty and misdeeds.
If the leaders are firm and stand on their toes with the intention of selfless, that my friend is a move towards progressive society.
A leaders mind should be as clear as mountain water and should contain minerals of selfless and compassion towards his men.
