Gazette: Brothers running family firm make UK’s Asian rich list Brothers running family firm make UK’s Asian rich list

TWO brothers have earned a place on the UK’s Asian Rich List for 2014.

Suki and Harry Dulai, who live in Colchester, own and run Surya Foods, in Harwich.

The pair have been valued at £55million, which ranks them 96th out of 101 for the Asian Media and Marketing Group’s list.

Harry, 42, who has two children, said: “We weren’t expecting this.

“We just focus on doing our main job on a day-to-day basis.

“The biggest pleasure we get is walking into a store and seeing our products.”

I'm sure these brothers don't want to be portrayed as being a success just because they are Asian. Good luck to them and anyone else, irrespective of class, colour or ethnicity.

However, stories like this, which focus on specific ethnic groups in the UK, says so much more about current society that is wrong! They go further to create segregation rather than bring society together. So why segregate these guys achievements just because they are Asian and why is there a UK Asian Rich List? unless its just there to condone the segregation of our society?

Firstly well done to the pair!

I am not sure if I would call it segregation by promoting the award, it sends a number of messages. I like to focus on the positive such as if you are coming to this country to make a contribution and or start a legit business that creates jobs your welcome.

If you are coming to sponge and carve a career in benefits we have ample people both born in the UK and from abroad who have flooded that market!

Another point on an awards/events just for certain groups, of all the countries I have been to there is always an ex-pat community who promote events/club for people of their own nationality, nothing odd really.

Monkey,

Where does it mention they are Muslim? The surname sounds Hindu or Sikh to me.
