New Delhi, Jan 10: India is the world's second most populous country with a huge majority of young people but it is being governed by  mostly over aged politicians. While 50 percent of India’s population belongs to under 25 years age bracket, the average age of India’s Union council of ministers is 64.



Age definitely brings more experience in the cabinet but it also creates a big disconnect between the majority of the population and those who are framing policies for them.

It’s time for the ruling leadership to give a serious thought towards bringing in more young faces in the cabinet so that the average age of cabinet ministers is brought down to a more acceptable level.

There is no  dearth of young politicians in India,  but the problem is that most of them belong to this or that political dynasty. Those who are out of active politics do not want their near and dear ones to join politics given the inherent manipulations and machinations attached with the life and journey of a politician.

On the other hand, a politician is always on the lookout for selecting his political heir from amongst his kith and kin. More often, they end up passing on the baton to sons or daughters. It will not be wrong to say that slowly but surely, India is moving towards ‘democratic monarchy’ where rulers will be chosen from different dynasties.

Let’s have a look at some of the most promising young politicians of India:
