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.
