Leadership is defined as a process of social influence in which one person enlists the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task.

Sociologists have always tried to look at historical figures to learn about leadership qualities. When we look at Indian history canvas during the period of independence struggle, one leader stands out prominently and that is Mahatma Gandhi. To me he was a leader par excellence.

Diploma in Business Management – XLRI Jamshedpur. He has worked in Tata Motors, Jamshedpur for 39 years in various capacities – handling projects, construction, maintenance and production activities.

Gandhi arrived in India on invitation from Congress. He was given the task of leading the political entity – Congress. Gandhi did not know India well. He embarked on a long tour of India. He saw poverty, exploitation, ignorance and discon- nect between leaders and the masses. When he returned back, he was clear of his priorities – to reach the people first, involve all strata of Indian society, break the caste and religion barriers and awaken them to their rights. Congress had many senior and seasoned leaders at the helm of affairs. Gandhi had to convince and cajole them to his line of thinking.
