Blessed Mother Teresa is more trusted personality in India than Mahatma Gandhi, father of the nation, shows a survey on brand trust.

 

The survey, titled ‘The Brand Trust Report 2013′, carried out by the Trust Research Advisory, however, placed the nun at ninth position and Mahatma Gandhi at the 12th position.

 

The number one–most trusted person—in the country is Anna Hazare, who inspired a nation wide campaign against corruption last year. Hazare retains his position for the second consecutive year now.

 

The survey lists country’s 1,100 most-trusted brands spanning 211 categories, including personalities, personal gadgets, consumer products, retail, technology, banking, government institutes, telecom, airlines, among others.

 

Interestingly, second and third positions go to Bollywood actors Aamir Khan and Salman Khan respectively and fourth comes business tycoon Ratan Tata.

 

Tata, who hung up his boots last year after serving Tata Group as its chairman for 21 years, jumped to the fourth position from sixth last year in the survey.

 

For the first time, the name of legendary industrialist late Dhirubhai Ambani also featured in the list. He was ranked second in the business category.

    When Anna is at No. 1 position means it clearly indicates that the new generation hardly knows much about Mahatma. When famous people like Nelson Mandela & Obama derived inspiration from Mahatma but In India people like Anna who inspired by Mahatma’s teachings have become the icons. Mahatma is consigned to the sidelines of our history and slowly becoming thing of the past. May be some historians are trying to keep his values away from us because of his stand on issues like Harijans & minorities.
