Just and advice:-

Well It's nice to see your hard-work towards gathering so much information about people from Bhumihar community. But no one would read it unless you put un-baised opinion.

Reading some of your blog-entries makes me wonder if ever any of these bhumihar people did anythign wrong or un-ethiccal work in their lifetime.

So if you are putting some information, put it from a journalist view point instead of a fan's view point.

Nevertheless, you've done a good job of gathering so much information about bhumihar community.
