The 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections saw the involvement of India's youth like never before. They were debating inside classrooms, sitting for dharnas on the street, having conversations in offices and on social media. The Internet became the place for political outrage, humour, op-eds and blogs carried by youth-run pages and media houses. The election in 2014 saw 150 million young voters and the highest number of first-time voters in India. As our country gains in years, the average age of the population keeps getting younger.

By 2020, India will have the world's largest youth population with 356 million people between the ages ten and twenty-four. And yet while we will have the largest number of young people in a country, the average age of our parliamentarians is sixty-three. Our leaders are at least four decades older than the average twenty-five-year-old.

This book follows the journeys of eight youth leaders, their aspirations for the country's youth, their aspirations for themselves, and most importantly, their aspirations for the nation. It explores whether their politics only mimics that of the older party leaders or if they have the ideas, passion and motivation of the demographic they represent.
