Then and Now Pictures of Indian politicians: In India, three professions always remain in news; actors, cricketers and politicians. With all due respect to all other professions, these three are the most loved professions in India, and that’s because there is a ‘star like’ image that gets attached to people who are in these professions.
However, in this post, we will look at some of the most unbelievably good then and now pictures of famous Indian politicians. Ageing, irrespective of caste, colour and religion, is inevitable. But, some people get old in style. As they say, some people, age like a fine wine.
