Kuch Baat Hai Ki Hasti, Mitati Nahin Hamari
Sadiyon Raha Hai Dushman Daur-I Jahan Hamara
(Translation: There is some uniqueness in being Indian that it never lost its entity even after braving several odds and facing many enemies all over the world!)
How well said! India is known for its oldest, richest and most advanced culture and tradition across the world. This led many scholars and artists to flock to India to learn and understand the specialty and vastness of its culture and arts.
Every culture and country are known and represented by its people and their perceptions. Today Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendrea Modi has already proven our leadership, culture, perception, and faith in the universal fraternity. The resonance of his aura, thought, and deeds has created a buzz not only on social media but has also placed him on the pedestal of Top Global Leaders. Who are those Indian leaders contribution of whom we must never forget and who have been the architects of today’s India? Here are top 9 Indian Leaders and their quotes that will change your life!
“A man is born alone and dies alone, and he experiences the good and bad consequences of his karma alone, and he goes alone to hell or the Supreme abode.”
If everyone could realize and accept it there would be no killings, fights, and animosity for power, money, position, and lust. Life would be happier, simpler and much better.
2. Dr. A.P. J. Abdul Kalam
“Never stop fighting until you arrive at your destined place – that is, the unique you. Have an aim in life, continuously acquire knowledge, work hard, and have the perseverance to realize the great life.”
Our late President Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam had been a fighter and the finest of a human being, who defined how a man should lead his life. I wish we could adopt even an iota of it, life would bring to our platter every success, happiness, and satisfaction. Friends, is it that difficult?
3. Swami Vivekananda
“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, and live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.”
This is the key to success. Let your nerves and soul be inundated with one single mission – your life goal. Nothing can stop you from achieving it! Not even God!
4. Mother Teresa
“We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature – trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon, and the sun, how they move in silence… We need silence to be able to touch souls.”
Yet another great way to embrace and lead a life! Silence! This is what is lacking everywhere. The noise of inner sins, distress, helplessness, poverty, inability, and competition! Finding peace and silence has become a full-time job for many – that too unpaid. Is this the way you want to lead your life? If not, it’s time to develop peace within. Stop for a while, look back and think! Could you improve yourself from what you were yesterday; do you know your life goal; is it the right way to achieve it; do you owe an apology to someone; is there someone you forgot to say SORRY? If you could find answers to these questions, you could find peace and God both.
5. Ratan Tata
“The people you meet in this life, all won’t be good to you. Some will criticize, some will de-motivate and some will try to pull you down. All you have to do is ignore them and move on. You don’t need to explain them your journey nor let them control your dreams. This is your life, live as you want.”
A great way of living without bothering about someone whose opinion doesn’t matter! Neglect those who demoralize you can keep you going patiently. Bother about those you care for. What they think about you should matter. Not those who have nothing to do with your success or failure. Don’t let anyone destroy your inner peace; this is the only place you’ll ever live in!
6. Narendra Modi
“Unless and until you inspire the people, you will not get results. Imposition will never give you the results. Inspiration will always give you the results.”
Motivation is all that get results. Enforcing something on others can compel them to do it but you cannot change their thoughts. This can only be done by inspiring them. Once done, you will never have to impose things. This is how our PM Mr. Narendra Modi treats his associates. He is known for touching unprecedented heights of success and leadership. This is the secret of his leadership and success.
7. Adi Guru Sankaracharya
“Do not be proud of wealth, people, relations, and friends, or youth. All these are snatched by time in the blink of an eye. Giving up this illusory world, know and attain the Supreme.”
This is Nirvana, which we never bother about. You cannot take a single penny, not even your body, along with when you leave this world. What is the fun of amassing so much wealth and power? Just to live a happy life? Is it really happy? The real answer lies in Nirvana! Are you ready to attempt? You may even opt for a moderate way to leading a simple life with high thinking!
8. Subhash Chandra Bose
“One individual may die for an idea, but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives.”
Yes, it inspires many to follow the path and incarnate the same idea in millions of others who believe in that ideology. So, be of substance and live for a noble cause that can ignite same fire in millions of others. Inspire others to live a life that inspires many more!
9. Bhagat Singh
“Life is lived on its own. Other’s shoulders are used only at the time of the funeral.”
Make the decisions of your life and do not give reins of your life to other’s hand. You only need other’s shoulders when you leave this world. All your life you have to live on your own. Your destiny, pain, happiness, and success cannot be shared by anyone else. So make the best of it and become a role model.
Do you think you can follow any one of these? If you can, it will surely make you a better person. Don’t forget to share your views!
