essence of the man

Excerpt from the book - Great Soul by Joseph Lelyveld

"the essence of his teaching was fearlessness and truth and action allied to these," Jawaharlal Nehru would write. "this voice was somehow different from others, it was quiet and low, and yet it could be heard above the shouting of the multitude; it was soft and gentle, and yet there seemed to be steel hidden away somewhere in it...Behind the language of peace and friendship there was power and the quivering shadow of action and a determination not to submit to a wrong."

(the words of Nehru in the above paragraph describing the Mahatma)

The leader. Need I say more?
It is the essence of true, spirited leadership to make the change!
