About Us

Younger Nation

Younger Nation celebrates India, its institutions, traditions, values and heroes. We, the Younger Nation, are frequently stereotyped as an apathetic generation, ill- informed and not bothered to change that. Jokes abound on how we don’t know who the President of India is and that we don’t care. Not true. Be it about systems and institutions, or occurrences and opinions, the young Indian has a lot to say, but has had little space to say it.

We are tired of being spoken for by others. It is time to reclaim the narrative, and more importantly, our future. An estimated 133 million young Indians will vote for the first time in a general election in 2019. Every political party has that number at the top its calculations for the polls. Their manifestoes will be constructed with keywords designed to win that first vote. Fair enough, so time to start hearing our voices and consulting us in the shaping of the polity we will inherit. We bring them to you here.
