A leader is a person who leads, yes.
leading people to greatness, happiness and making them to believe that their wishes and dreams will come true. leaders are not measured in strength or fame, it is by how fast and meaningfully you solve a problem. equality is the best.
nor male or female leads it doesnt matter it just that how he or she listens to your opinions and problems.
leaders are born, yes. but greatness in people are not in their birth, it is in you, make and believe in it. :)
