Childhood photos are always special. “It means simplicity” as Kailash Satyarthi would like to put it. It is that little kingdom where nobody dies. The photos tend to tell stories about those moments that you probably want to live again. Because growing up did no good to anyone.

All of us grow up with certain dreams. Some dream of becoming a doctor, some want to be a pilot and some wish to be prime minister of the country. Childhood photos make you nostalgic where you just want to look at them and wonder how times have changed. Ever wondered how the famous personalities that you know about today, looked as kids?

While some grew up to be great leaders some went on to be absolute savage. However, you will be surprised to see how innocent they looked as kids. Can you recognise these famous Indian politicians from their childhood photos? Let’s see how many can you guess.

P.S: Try not to look at the answers before making at least one guess
