Whom should we encourage to become our next generation leaders?

I have been thinking about this issue for a while. Who would make a good leader in the Indian democracy? What background should they come from? Well, here are my thoughts so far

Lal Bahadur Shastry ji used the following slogan (Jai is a praise, kisan is a farmer, jawan is a soldier and vigyan is science)

Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan

to which Atal Bihari Vajpayee added

Jai Vigyan

I feel we need people from the defense in our parliament. America has had the tradition of having people serving in the military become their presidents. I feel we should have

  1. Kisans (farmers) at the grass root level of politics
  2. Vigyanis (Scientists) be involved as Members of Rajya Sabha (as already dictated by our constitution)
  3. Jawans (Soldiers) at the top most level of leading the country with pride and loyalty.
