New Delhi: Even though APJ Kalam is no longer the first man of India, but he continues to ignite young Indians along with Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata, as both are voted as the most trusted in a list of 100 public figures from across India, according to survey done by Reader's Digest.
The list of most trusted people also features Amitabh Bachchan, Kiran Bedi, Sachin Tendulkar and AR Rahman. Indians also reveal some new preferences with the inclusion of Congress Party leader Rahul Gandhi, E Sreedharan and Abhinav Bindra in the top 30.
Among the most trusted professions in India, teachers lead the list followed by firefighters and humble farmers, while politicians, real estate agents, government officials and police officers are at the bottom of the Trust Survey of 40 everyday Indian professions.
The survey, which is conducted for the first time in India, carries fascinating findings from the Digest's exclusive, independent poll, which reveals the people and professions we trust and those we don't. Around 750 Indians were surveyed online and asked to rank the shortlisted individuals and professions they have the most faith in.
