Building new portfolio - need advise

I started investing in 1997 using my father’s retirement funds in IPOs. I bought HDFC, TTK , Jindal steel and some other stocks. Later I moved to US and didn’t follow Indian market much. I lost few of the stock certificates. Recently I sold a property and invested partly in mutual fund. This forum inspired me. Now I want to build a long term portfolio. Please review my picks and guide me
