Indians are known for promoting their children to the best possible way. Nepotism runs in the blood of majority of Indians. Bollywood is replete with useless actors getting work just because of their parents. So is the case of almost all fields, including politics. In this context, Nitish Kumar is different. He never took any interest to promote any of his family members, even his only son Nishant Kumar. The leaders of Bihar who came out of JP movement have made their children lawmakers, like Ram Vilas Paswan and Lalu. However, Nishant has never shown any interest in the world of politics. Had he wanted, he would have been MP from Nalanda. No one would have stopped him.
Nishant is different. Anyone who has met him vouches for his simplicity and broad mindedness. He is a man with vision, yet wants to lead a spiritual life. He is married with a beautiful lady, but aspires to live a life of ascetic. He is a man with first class engineering degree from one of the best colleges of India (BIT, Mesra), yet he wants to understand the relationship between biological forces and spiritual forces. We told you, Nishant is different. You will never hear him talking about caste and religion distinction. For him, everyone is same.
Profile of Nishant Kumar
Nishant was born on 21st July, 1975 in Bakhtiyarpur to Nitish Kumar and Late Manju Sinha. While he was growing up, Nitish got involved in the student politics.

After completing schooling, Nishant started preparation for IIT JEE. He couldn’t clear IIT JEE entrance examination, but cracked BIT Mesra entrance. It should be noted that Lalu had used CM quota to get admission for his daughters – Misa and Rohini – for MBBS. However, Nishant didn’t take the help of his father. He has always been a brilliant student.
Nitish remained involved in the politics and was unable to give sufficient time to Nishant. In fact, Nishant had hardly spent time with Nitish during his formative years. He was getting emotionally detached with his father.
Once done with engineering, he worked with a private firm for few months. However, he couldn’t concentrate and decided to left job. He was not getting disturbed because of some problems between his parents. He started to stay with his mother.

However, it is a fact that Nishant was not happy with his father for some family reasons.
