WHEN THE PRESENT MEETS THE FUTURE
Let’s start it from the famous quote of Khuswant Singh, “A bad government is a government elected by good people who do not vote” And, as far as all the elections fought in independent India, statistics reveal that youths constitute the major part (more than 57%) of the people who do not vote.

In almost every election young people are the least likely to vote, and these participation rates are continuously declining the youth membership of political parties is dropping. Young people are less concerned with politics, less politically knowledgeable and do not participate in social or political activities. They have low levels of political interest. But are young people doing such a bad job? Do they really have such low levels of involvement? Through this seminar presentation I concentrate on implementing the idea of politics into the minds of youth. By the end of this seminar I hope the youth of this generation, who have less political knowledge, be aware of all the political issues and have an idea regarding how politics in a country works. My audience will be the students of Rajagiri Centre for Business Studies.
