To this, Ram Sampath replied that he agrees with the twitter user. He said that its a sign of 'scarce mentality'. He added that Indians have to learn to appreciate things without having to make 'stupid charts' where one person deserves to be at the top. 

Another Twitter user agreed with the tweet. He tweeted that people having these debates are 'very dumb'. He said that normal people do not even have the right to compare music because of their 'scarce knowledge'. He mentioned that music is an 'ocean' and everybody should 'flow freely in it'. 

Another Twitter user replied that she cannot believe that people are actually comparing Kishore Kumar and Mohammed Rafi. She said, "They both are amazing and completely different from each other". Take a look at what she has to say.
