Default 100 Geniuses of Bangladesh

Okay, I sent this notifications to all my "friends" in fb and didnt get much reply. Here it is again:
hey everyone

i am planning to compile a list of 100 geniuses of BD and publish a book about them....would deeply appreciate your suggestions....some of the entries include:

- car designer Nizamuddin Awlia Leepu as featured in Discovery Channel
- Oscar winning sound editor (Nafees Bin Jafar)
- female sculptor Dr Novera Ahmed
- artist SM Sultan
- pantomime Partha Pratim Majumdar
- architect of Smriti Shoudh Syed Moinul Hossain (apparently who is suffering from depression now)
- dancer Rawshan Jamil
- kid who saved a train collision with a flag
- cooking genius Tommy Miah
- fashion designer Bibi Rusell (debatable)

and of course the "obvious" ones like:

- economist, Nobel laureate Dr Yunus
- chess genius Niaz Morshed/ Rani Hamid
- philanthropist Dr R.P.Shaha
- philosopher G.C. Dev
- literary giant Kazi Nazrul Islam
- agriculturist Dr Shaikh Shiraz


etc....

so plz feel free to suggest some names whom you deem to be in the list...they can be from any category
like photography to atheletics, entomology to pottery making, astrology to astronomy...etcetera

Is there a reason why Kobi guru is #34? Do you like Shaq or something?
Also very surprised Dr. Sheikh Hasina didn't make the list.

The man invented partex
Salauddin.
Momen Munna (RIP)

Principal Gutli (inside joke)
Poet Ershad (must be a top three prospect). Do not challenge me on this one. Did any BD person had a kid after seventy? I thought so.
