The Aminidivi Islands, are one of the three island subgroups in the Union Territory of Lakshadweep, India. It is the northern group of the Lakshadweep, separated from the Laccadive Islands subgroup by the 11th parallel north; the total land area of the group is 9.26 km². The Union Territory was known as Laccadive and Amindivi Islands, a name, changed to Lakshadweep by an act of Parliament in 1973; the Aminidivi group forms a subdivision. The islands of Amini, Chetlat and Bitra are inhabited; the population numbered 18,876 at the 2001 census and Islam is the main religion of the islanders. Aminidivi has the highest recorded rainfall in India in a 24-hour period, at 1,168 mm on 2004-05-06. Aminidivi consists of atolls with islands, three reefs or atolls with only unvegetated sand cays above the high water mark, four submerged banks. In addition, there is the island that gives its name to the group, located at 11°06′N 72°45′E at the northwestern end of Pitti Bank, a sunken atoll; the islands were inhabited from ancient times by people of nearby Kerala to which were added people of Arab descent.

Vasco da Gama visited these islands around 1498. In the mid 16th century all the inhabited islands of the Lakshadweep were conferred as jagir on the ruling family of the Cannanore Kingdom by the Chirakkal or Kolattiri Raja in order to grant protection from the Portuguese. In the latter quarter of the 18th century the islands of the Amindivi group of the Lakshadweep revolted owing to the rigours of the enforcement of the monopoly of coir rope trade. Following the uprising, the northern islands put themselves under the rule of the Kingdom of Mysore in 1784 ruled by Tippu Sultan; the southern group of the Cannanore Islands, remained loyal to the Arakkal Kingdom. In 1792, as a consequence of the Third Anglo-Mysore War and the defeat of Tippu Sultan, the Amindivi Islands came under the East India Company rule following the treaty of Srirangapatna; the Amindivi subgroup was attached to the South Canara collectorate of the Madras Presidency of the British Raj in 1799, hence they became known as the South Kanara Islands.

Paul T. Conway

Paul T. Conway is the former president of Generation Opportunity, he was chief of staff for the U. S. Department of Labor under Secretary Elaine Chao, chief of staff at the Office of Personnel Management, an agency chief at the U. S. Department of Homeland Security, he is a former Deputy Director of the Citizen Project at the Heritage Foundation. While at DHS, Conway served as Chief of Staff to the Federal Coordinator for Gulf Coast Rebuilding and twice as the Acting Federal Coordinator, he was awarded the Secretary's Silver Medal by Secretary Michael Chertoff. Conway led Generation Opportunity, a Koch brothers-funded group whose focus was engaging Millennials, young Americans between the ages of 18-29, mobilizing them on issues of importance, prior to and during their public rollout in June 2011 through November 2012. During Generation Opportunity’s first 18 months, from June 2011 through November 2012, its 28-person team contacted 250,000 people in person, generated 1.1 billion views of its social media content, attracted 4 million Facebook fans.

While Generation Opportunity focused on multiple issues of importance to young Americans, the issue of youth unemployment among Millennials dominated the discussion. Conway told the Hillsdale Natural Law Review that "the number one issue to them was the lack of full-time jobs... hey blamed the President for that, not Congress", he said. On November 13, 2012, the Hillsdale Natural Law Review wrote about the impact Generation Opportunity had on the 2012 election during its first eighteen months. “In 2008, Senator Barack Obama won the youth vote by 34 points – 66%-32%. In 2012, Obama won the same demographic by only 23 points: 60%-37%; the youth vote swung 11 points in favor of the Republican ticket. No other demographic changed half this much between 2008 and 2012. Voters between the ages of 30 and 44 swung 1 point closer to Obama, while 5% of those 45-64 left him, along with 4% of seniors above 65; the youth vote swung against Obama despite the fact that more young people voted in 2012 than in 2008.

In 2008, 66% of the 22 million Millennials who made it to the polls translated to 14.53 million votes. This year, 60 % of 23 million Millennials voted for a total of 13.8 million. "By 2020, 38% of the electorate will be Millennials... The drop in enthusiasm among young voters…is important." Due – at least in part – to Generation Opportunity’s hard work, President Obama "lost six points among the most critical base he had", said Conway, who praised young Americans as "very smart... able to connect the dots."Starting in September 2013, Generation Opportunity began running online ads utilizing a "Creepy Uncle Sam", with the tagline "Don't let government play doctor". According to the group's president, Evan Feinberg, the ads are meant to promote an "opt-out" option, where young people would "...have to pay a fine, but that's going to be cheaper for you and better for you”
