Politics is simultaneously an activity, a process and a profession. As an activity politics is inherent in the human nature and therefore it is called a fundamental human activity. It is as fundamental to the human-being as hunger, sleep, thirst and sex As a process politics emphasizes dialogue, give and take and reconciliation . It is based on the adage live and let live. As a profession it requires commitment and special knowledge of the needs of society and community. Politics is both a science and an art. As a science politics studies the way people govern themselves, control others and authoritative allocations are made for a society. As an art politics is the practice of governing, controlling, influencing and making authoritative allocation of values .
