Prince’s father, KL Joseph ( Appachayan to all ) passed away peacefully on 27 December, 2011 at Kochi, surrounded by his loved ones. A towering personality in his active years, affable and generous, he had always been a prominent member of the Church and the local community, in various capacities.
To me, leadership is a function of selfless sacrifice and a ticking brain. If someone is ordered to risk his life climbing a mountain towards an enemy post daring flying bullets, he’d be a fool to do it out of fear of an Army Act. He does it out of trust of the man who leads them into the flying bullets, of his character and his integrity. I don’t understand the preoccupation with gaining popularity “ if you don’t have passion, you cannot be a leader”.
