A government brings happiness to masses by Good governance(GG). As babu, I wish to make people happy by GG. Its free without favor. Feel happy in enhancing the social, political,and economic status of anyone in anyway. We all leaders. A leader is one who moves public opinion in the direction he or she wants it to move in.
If u can't be a pencil to write anyone's happines, then try atleast to be a nice rubber to erase someone's sorrows.
