Who’s the youngest of them all? (Its Smriti, again)

January 20, 2015

Smriti Irani is the youngest minister in Mr. Narendra Modi’s mid sized ministry.

Not only in the ministry is she the youngest, but also at many other aging decision making bodies.

For one, look at http://www.spa.ac.in/management.aspx… At the helm is Smriti Zubin Irani, Chairperson. Followed by the senior professors and heads at School of Planning and Architecture Delhi. All older than her. The chair, at 33, is demographically still in the bracket called youth. Shockingly, the only one amongst the whole list. The next youngest person, Mr. Meshram, is easily 38, having graduated in ’95. Youth is supposedly India’s biggest asset, but is it getting a farthing’s worth of chance? Right training and incubation? Obviously, those on the councils are old hands, solid as oaks. But. With all respect due to the seniors, I hope more young people would be inducted in SPA, and given room for errors and disruption. (Hope the same for CEPT, and, India in general)
