The article presents characteristics of an ethical leader. Ethical leadership was exemplified by Jawaharlal Nehru, in 1937 when he won a second term as the President of the Indian National Parliament. He received numerous praises; however, there was an anonymous writer who criticized him. That writer turned out to be Nehru himself. Hence, ethical leaders are not afraid of debates, they participate actively in testing ideas and their legacy remains with the institution after they have gone.
