According to wikipedia, cricketer Suresh Raina, born in Gaziabad city in Uttar Pradesh state in India on 27 November 1986, is a Brahmin while another popular site = surfindia says Raina is Kashmiri pandit which is vertually the same thing. Not sure about surfindia but most of the information put forward by Wikipedia is accurate and since both are same similar things, I guess it settles it.

Think about country by up lifting of your thoughts from cast-ism. Firstly be an Indian. When anybody plays at world level, He should feel only an Indian, not alana falana of anything.

It's too sad to say that still our casteism system is more strong than our nationalism.
