Followers or Leaders? - Which is best to practice to Lead or to follow?
This was a debate given at a orphanage for the 15th year building ceremony. Since the orphanage was nearby home, we got a chance to go and spend time with the kids. This was topic given to the kids and each one expressing their own thoughts which was really admirable. Many said wish to be leaders, some said its better to be followers of great people. But amazingly a kid answered that he wanted to be Unique on his own way with his own principles and ideas. So if this question is put to you, what would you answer?
