Often we see that in news channels, big people like industrialists, celebrities and other famous people giving interviews, introducing themselves to world, showing their status and other related things, even their smallest of news make it to headlines and such is the world and if you flip the coin, you will be amazed by what you see. Whereas on side those big people have been continuously making their presence felt to the world, the other second side tells you about those people too who are known to the world but are rarely seen in media. They appear only on occasions and such people exist.
