field. When you choose politics as a career, you are taking the responsibility of your mother nation on
your shoulders. One should have the heart to help people who are in need. The direction and dedication
in politics can only flow through new and beneficial thinking and the feeling of patriotism. For
politicians, serving people and their welfare should be a bigger objective than money making.

knowledge with time. It is highly crucial for the new generation to enter into politics for the progress of
a nation. Many times, young and the old generation clashes because of the generation gap.

added to the curriculum in schools and colleges in a proper manner. Youngsters should be aware of their
responsibilities towards their country. Instead of following someone, they should have the courage to
stand for their own rights and raise their voice against what is wrong.” He further adds, “there should be
a qualification criteria to enter into politics and some ground rules regarding politicians should be set so
that they could not misuse their power.”

should enter to politics at least once in their lifetime to know their nation and to bring change you want
to see in the world.
