It has been aptly said: “Leadership is not what you do, but who you are.” This, however, is only partially true.

Leadership is very much who you are, but it cannot be divorced from what you do. Who you are represents the inner person, and what you do represents the outer person. Each is dependent on the other for maximum effectiveness. So now watch any television ‘talk show’ or attend a press conference or visit the website of the Election Commission of Pakistan to understand that what type of leaders have become the destiny of this ill-fated nation. For better understanding of the physics and chemistry of our so-called leaders, one has to visit my home province Sindh where there is nothing but corruption and crime, doom and destruction, feud and fraud, absence of management, motivation, democratization or any development at all.
