Navnathsaheb, only studying politics will not really help poor people. What is really needed is the implementation of your knowledge in areas that affect the lives of poor folk. This can be done by working with a government department for rural schemes or working with an N.G.O. for the betterment of the underpriviledged. You can also join full-fledged politics and make a positive difference in the lives of people at a macro level.
The poor can be helped in a number of ways. Some of them are: Implementation of primary education, Imparting of knowledge for hygiene and better living conditions in slums areas, Providing training for minimum subsistence living, etc. You can also make a deep impact by pushing policies for better rationing facilities in villages, improvement of roads and general infrastructure, provision for employment through various grameen schemes, availability of finance for the poor etc.
