Python Inner Classes

Writing a class within another class is called creating an inner class or nested class. For example, if we write class B inside class A, then B is called inner class or nested class. Inner classes are useful when we want to sub group the data of a class. For example, let's take a person's data like name, age, date of birth etc. Here, name contains a single value like 'Karthik', age contains a single value like '30' but the date of birth does not contain a single value. Rather, it contains three values like date, month and year. So, we need to take these three values as a sub group. Hence it is better to write date of birth as a separate class Dob inside the Person class. This Dob will contain instance variables dd, mm and yy which represent the date of birth details of the person.
