Would have been better if you could have been more discrete with the choices !
Our community has had quite a few illustrious names who dont find a mention.....
Instead of writing about Sir Ganesh Dutt/Chandra shekhar singh/Krishna Kant Singh/Vijay Narain Singh/C.P.Thakur/R.S.Sharma /M.P.Singh you chose to write about Businessmen like Samprada and King Mahendra...they are not role models for Bhumihar youth ! I wont be surprised if Suraj Bhan/Munna Shukla/Dhumal Singh/Sunil Pandey .
figure in the list next time.If you had to choose a businessman,you could have opted for B.P.Sinha instead
