Beijing, Apr.29 (ANI): Yuan Longping, known as the father of hybrid rice, has been named China's soul-richest person.

The China Social Sciences Press said in Beijing that Yuan's contribution with hybrid rice was invaluable to the world, but the man had never sought fame and wealth and still works on his farmland as a plain farmer.

Also on the list are Chen Guangbiao, a famous philanthropist; Li Shufu, founder of China's Zhejiang Geely Holdings; Han Han, a professional rally driver, best-selling author and China's most popular blogger; and Hu Shuli, chief editor of CAIXIN Media, the China Daily reports. (ANI)
