Maithil Brahmins were the most prosperous community in India at one point of time. Their contribution in the Indian Politico-economic scenario cannot be neglected. At one point of time, most of the top bureaucrats in India and many MPs. MLAs use to be Maithil Brahmins. Just because of their superior caste quality, they were respected on each walk of life. In fact no one can deny the fact they are the pillar stones of Modern India and India would not had been India without this community.
Unfortunately post Mandal era, their importance has reduced drastically and they have become like any ordinary citizen. This is the high time that all the Maithil Brahmins should join hands and ask government of India for suitable reservation in the government jobs and politics before they become extinct.
