The Indian Parliament would be a perfect place to demonstrate the true richness in the diversity of India. There is a political representation from almost all the sections of the society inside the parliament. Politics is no longer the occupation of the old, the recently concluded General Elections have demonstrated active participation by young politicians and they have also been been approved by the public at large.
Let us accept the fact that there are a wide variety of reasons why people enter politics. We have seen history-sheeters join politics and also people hungry for power and wealth. These are definitely the downsides of Indian political set-up wherein we see bad elements enter politics for purely selfish reasons. On the other hand, we have also witnessed people choosing politics as their occupation because they want to make a difference to the society, they want to contribute, carry on the legacy of their ancestors who have made a name for themselves serving the country.
