A state cannot run on its own, it needs administrators- people who are fit and morally correct to equip the resources and regulate the wheels of a country. Politicians play a very important role in this aspect; they are the leaders who precisely guide us and undertake the responsibility of deciding on tough matters. The politicians possess fiery personalities and carry with them the ability to lead the masses. Politicians from the backbone of a nation, leading it into greatness and prosperity. Recently, politicians have been receiving a lot of flak for being dishonest or corrupt. Among these probabilities lies a lot of politicians who genuinely work for the betterment of society and the upliftment of all the classes. They influence and motivate the mass to galvanise them to work up the way of the ladder into prosperity. They sacrifice a lot of their time and health to serve the nation, they even go to the extent of forgoing wages to take up a more philanthropic approach towards philanthropic work. Be it a natural disaster or a religious festival, the politicians are the first to step into the fray, whether in joy or sorrow.
