A Lesson to Learn

Ms. Sonia Gandhi's recent decline to accept the post of Prime MInister rather surprised me when I compared it to the politicians and politics of our country. Her decline presents her as a true leader of the nation. The situation in our country is quite the opposite; our politicians are always in a pursuit of toppling up the government, and thus prove a hinderance to the country's progress. The episode of Shahbaz's return to the country (though he had to leave the country again) is one such example. The easiest task is to criticise others when you yourself are a failure. This is what our politicians are in the habit of doing.
