Politics is the part and parcel of any nation and without politics, a nation may not exist at all. So, I selected one candidate who claims to be the youngest candidate for Member of Parliament (M.P) Lok Sabha 2014 from Aligarh constituency, as "Today's Indian People" Arvind Kumar Singh.

Arvind Kumar Singh was born on 7th November 1988, in Aligarh.

Singh currently is the Chancellor of Noida International University (NIU) and with this post in 2010, Singh became the world's youngest chancellor. Arvind had his schooling in India, moved to England (University of Leeds) for his masters degree in International business. He has been awarded with the Doctorate in Management for his work on “How personal evolution and development of leaders impact growth and success of their organizations.”
