With ‘Arvind Kejriwal’ and the ‘AAP’ trying to change the face of Indian politics, the youth inclination towards,  politics as mainline profession has increased. From a time where we associated politics only with the dhoti-kurta clad, over 60, pan chewing and overweight men, today the Indian politics comprises of a very different kind of politicians.


The uneducated and unconcerned lot definitely exist even today, but the tide of change is definitely taking over. With a leading daily coming out with news reports of students from fields like engineering and management working as interns at the Maharashtra office of the ‘AAP’, youth interest in politics becomes very apparent.

Ashitosh Shetty a B. Com graduate feels positively in favor of a career in politics. “If the youth started taking interest in running the nation, we would definitely have a younger and more active system in place’.  He feels that a nation run by young blood alongside the experience politicians would be the perfect combination for India’s development.

Another leading newspaper recently ran stories of how trained professionals from different fields have left their jobs and is considering a career in politics. These professionals want to look at politics as a field that helps them serves the society along with the monetary benefits that their earlier jobs guaranteed.

For Darsh Parekh a Management undergraduate, with keen interest in social work, the prospect of being an educated and qualified politician is a unique concept. “There is an image around politicians of being power hungry and illiterate in today’s youth. But the way things are going today in India, there is a huge scope for a positive change to come very soon.”

Is the youth actually going to take charge, or will they too get tired eventually and walk away? Only time can tell!
