Being Human but in Humane

I see most youngsters wearing T-Shirt bearing slogan Being Human, its a NGO founded by Salman Khan probably one of the best actors in Bollywood. When I heard the name of the NGO I was surprised as to why it was named "Being Human" and not "Being Humane" , now please don't ask whats the difference. Mother Teressa was Humane Hitler was Human that is the difference.  I wondered why Salman Khan named it Being human and not humane , I got answer to it immediately what else would he name it after all killing 7 innocent people while in drunken state is being Human . The great Judiciary system of India decided that people  needed to watch few more movies from this great human and punishing him for his crimes did not weigh enough against movies like Ready, Dabang and wanted. Lives of 7 lowly citizens of India did not matter against entertainment value of billions of Indians.


 "Anna Hazare zindabad , Anna Hazare zindabad", I see so may people shouting the slogan on the roads saying they support lokpal Bill and that they are Against corruption.I wonder if Lokpal is the only way to end corruption and if it passes will it make any difference. I see this as a struggle yes a struggle but not for people but for power which reminds me of Gandhi Ji during our independence who sided with Nehru to form Govt. This movement will give power to Anna Hazare and his support will decide who forms the government. Anna Hazare no doubt is inherently a good person but wants and thrives on power and if we go by history we all know that power corrupts. People of India can gain true power only when the need for change, for a revolution arises from with in, which people from all corners and strata of society start and not by a mere bunch of people who think a law or a bill can bring a change.I fear the worst that in the end people of India the greatest and biggest democracy  in the world will loose any hope there is left for this country. I know one thing for sure I am going to do my part for its my karma and hope everything else falls in place.

How do you define a leader? is he who drives team towards common goal? is he who takes all burden himself? is he the most skilled person in the group?

for me leader is the one who has got attitude to learn anything from everything he looks for opportunities in adversities and one who faces the storms himself before leading others in to it.

I think most of the great leaders had that inborn spark in them just that it had to be discovered. So if leadership is inborn what about others?

Leadership qualities can be developed but never learnt, and developing takes years of handwork and perseverance.
