When a poll is conducted to know the current popularity of musician or actor or players etc belonging to different genre in a casual or non professionals manner, it is bound to throw up such weird results. The result would be quite different if the questioner had been designed by a professional who uses psychological and statistical analysis tools to give proper weightage to arrive at the final result. If the result are arrived at by just arithmetic totaling of the answers and target group is not balanced then the poll results should not be taken seriously.

Because the present day generation of those voted might not have even heard of Sankar Jaikishan, Lekshmikant Pyarelal, Kalyanji anandji etc.

Younger generation votes for musicians whom they know well...3-4 decades from now new musicians will be in the top list.
