Enlightened Leadership Views:
The political leaders and political parties promise their voters. They are promising removing of poverty, creation of jobs, growth in economy, removal of corruption, good governance, etc. The religious leaders and the religions are also promising many things to their followers. They are promising God, heaven, Moksha, Nirvana, etc. There is always a huge gap between what is promised and what is delivered. This gap and this delta, between the promise and the fulfilment is their notional profit. And this offering is a prt of their survival strategy. Is the non-fulfilment of this promise a crime? Well, I don’t know what the law says. It seems all it says is, caveat emptor - let the buyer beware. As people, laws and technologies evolve, the pressure on this gap increases. A true leader (Political, Business, Social, Spiritual) is one who does not promise more than what he can deliver. He talks the walk and walks the talk. The gap between what he promises and what he delivers is always a “Shunya”. This is the Power of Shunya.
