These are narrow domestic walls. Only merit must be taken into consideration. Whatever the role people get they must play it with enthusiasm. The people must inculcate strict discipline. Then only they will get success. They must get rid of their biases. They must realize that the interests of the nation are foremost. They must lead others by personal example.
