"The change begins with me."
"I am going to clean up politics."
"I am not looking for a job. I will create jobs."
"You see a challenge. I see opportunity."

National pride, or the spirit that binds us together as a
collective soul, does not have a permanent home in our
hearts and mind. For most of us it responds to the
stimulus of a cricket match, on national holidays or
situations of armed conflict. Most of the times we are
filled with mixed emotions.
