     Leadership as it is understood today is a colonial macho concept.This leader supposedly has special and superior talents; vision, military skills and so forth. He must necessarily have followers. more the followers, bigger the leader. the followers must have blind faith in his leadership qualities and obeys him unquestioningly It does not matter whether such a person is a woman. A woman leader also quickly fits into this mould. we have any number of example of such women leaders in modern times, specially in India. They are often more ruthless than men and particularly enjoy making men whine in front of them for favours and mercy.
    Leadership and service are two alien concepts. They don't go together.
    We certainly need people who serve. We don't need leaders who demand and are given special privileges.
