Lesson in Leadership

Having just completed the Indian epic, Mahabharata, I am pondering over a statement which a insignificant character in the story makes to the another. He says,

"The citizens of a country, whose king is weak, should not marry and beget children. A worhty family life, with culture and domestic happiness, is possible only under the rule of a good strong king. Wife, wealth and other things are not safe, if there be no proper king ruling over us"

Inspite of the age when it was written, and civilization it represents, the society it describes and the story it tells of, this statement has lot of significance to all walks of life.

Only if the leaders are good and strong, a project can meet its objectives, an organization and its employees can prosper, the cities can see improvements, the societies can advance, the governments can govern & not 'mis-govern' and the world can become a better place to live in.
