Sonia Gandhi - her whole life has been eventful....a woman who has seen so much of emotion, tragedy, suspense, happiness, all mixed together....a reluctant leader of a century old traditional party who was forced into politics much against her will...yet the thorns in our democratic setup have never projected her good side, her sacrifice for the party, sacrifice for the Country whenever it was required.
Contrast her with the present lot of BJP leadership, who talk a lot of high sounding beats but their conduct proves how crazy they are for power, their lust for the chair is so apparent that they would go to any extent....on the other hand you have Sonia Gandhi who could have easily become PM of India in 2004 had she not stepped away for Manmohan Singh....was this not the ultimate sacrifice? I ask you how many of the present lot in the BJP have the courage or the character to throw away the PM chair if offered to them..does Modi have that character in him? If nobody is willing to support him as PM in the event of a hung Parliament will he have the magnanimity to move away like Sonia did, although for totally different reasons.
The answer is a big NO...the man who is adamant on fighting from UP where he has no connection whatsoever except proving a shallow point of popularity will hardly give way to his PM aspirations if the supporting parties get stuck on modi as a choice....Although I sincerely hope the Nation is not faced with that terrible choice and Congress will get a clear majority on its own...
Sonia Gandhi is otherwise an extremely capable and talented leader full of compassion and her love for India and its culture can't be overlooked at any cost...She is always more Indian in her outlook approach language and behavior than the average Indian born and brought up here...It was our bad luck that she didn't become India's PM in 2004 otherwise we would have been in a much better position than what we are today....
India is a diverse Country - what we need today is a leader with vision and determination, who can keep India's diversity united - any attempt to pitch any group against the other, or any class against the other could be extremely dangerous and counter productive
Another quality Sonia Gandhi has - she doesn't forget loyalists, and they in turn don't forget her....of course exceptions are there...people who have taken favors from her but are now immune to her magnanimity....some journalists also fall in this category who have enjoyed her benevolent support when it suited them but the same people are now smugly in criticism of her....
Yet Sonia Gandhi will always remain a charismatic woman - she has kept Country and her party before everything else....its the people who have sometimes taken advantage of her...See her entire life, her actions and then judge for yourself - its easy to criticize yet its difficult to get into her shoes and act the way she did....

A woman has numerous qualities and the feeling of love is indeed one of them.....love in a woman takes on different forms and roles she is assigned to play in life....as a daughter her love for her father is different than the love for her mother....her love for her husband is different than the love which happens when she attains motherhood.....the love for her siblings is totally different and brings out the maternal instincts in a woman....yet the love she feels for her daughter is different than the love for her son.......as a woman she knows her daughter needs more love for she will need this when her time comes to carry forward what she has brought forward.....a woman is capable of handling multiple roles...at home she's a home maker....while at work she assumes the role of a leader with added responsibilities....the boss who leads the organization to profits is all humane and love as she lands up home....weary and tired....yet assumes the role of a home maker without grudges and uncompromisingly....
That's why a woman is considered as seated on a higher pedestal than man and is in a much more envious position than her male counterpart.....

Love is never dull or boring,
Life is never tough or under scoring.
Its the thought which provokes you,
otherwise every moment is the same.
Let the brilliance shine,
as you move on in life.
The monotony will also melt,
as you shine the light on it.
A break is not the end,
the spark is always alive.
Start afresh in life, yet,
don't commit the same mistake again

Life is not all rose and honey - yet life is certainly not all thorns....life is not all cynicism and serpentine.
Life is a gift wrapped in silver paper...what's inside is the real you, waiting to be unpacked each day of your existence. If you handle the wrapping with reasonable amount of care, a new you will bare itself every day.
The more you live life the more you get exposed to its daily perils, its adventures and excitement. The more you interact with people in your daily chores, the more life leads you in the right direction. Sitting cooped up will lead you nowhere. Every creativity needs effort, exposure and hard work...nobody can achieve greater heights by simply aping anyone, although there's no harm in having a hero....everybody has one or more than one hero in life....a Guru who can show the correct path
Life leads you on a smooth lane as well as the rough potholes....how you slip through the smoothness and avoid the pitfalls is what life is all about....
Even if you can't avoid the pitfalls, try your best to sail through with dignity and can dour.....once you celebrate life, it will reward you with the respect and dignity you deserve...
