Mustafa Kemal Atatürk .has shown the world that how effective leadership and dedicated services can make revolutionary changes in the life of people. The life of Atatürk is a lesson for the modern political leaders who are struggling to contribute something to their nations because of widespread corruption, partialities, biases, discriminations and prejudices. .Ataturk was born in Salonica in 1880 into a family which was Muslim, Turkish speaking and precariously middle class”(Mango, p. 25). Salonica is not part of Turkey at present. it is the part of Greece now. Even though, Ataturk had many brothers and sisters, only one of Atatürks siblings, a sister named Makbule survived childhood. Mustafa Kemal was the childhood name of Ataturk. Even though the origin of Ataturk is still controversial, it is widely accepted that his father was an Albanian whereas his mother was a Macedonian. Ali Raza, a civil servant, was the father of Ataturk who died at the age of 46 because of his crazy life styles (Mango, p. 30). The sudden and unexpected death of Ali Raza brought the entire responsibility of looking after the family, on the shoulders of his mother.
His mother was a strong believer in God and religion and she encouraged Mustafa to attend childhood education at a religious school. Even though Atatruk was not much interested in religious education, he spent a brief period of his childhood in this religious school. However, he joined another secular school later because of the instructions of his father. His parents were interested in making Ataturk a business man and forced him to learn more about the trade activities. But his interests were different and unknown to even his parents. Atatürk continued in the President ship for 15 years until his death in 1938. He did everything possible to make Turkey capable of standing in its own legs with the help of comprehensive reformation processes in the political, social, legal, economic, and cultural spheres. Emerging nations now admire and imitate him as an idol. The visions of Atatürk were highly integrated and he believed in secular credentials and humanity. Renowned world leaders like Churchill, Roosevelt, Nehru Nasser, Kennedy etc paid immense tribute to Atatürk for his contributions to the world. He never treated neighbouring countries as friends rather than enemies which helped Turkey to get more cooperation from the neighbouring countries for its economic growth.
