Although some contradict, but We all believe and agree on that the Greatest Indian is Mahatma Gandhi. But who is the next greatest one after 1947. Recently the history channel has done a television special on Greatest Indian after 1947.
B R Ambedkar – The man behind India’s constitution.
Jawaharlal Nehru – India’s first prime minister.
APJ Abdul Kalam – India’s former president and also known as the missile man.
Mother Teresa – The Albanian nun whoe made India her home country and the founder of the Missionaries of Charity.
A. B. Vajpayee – Former Prime minister of India
Indira Gandhi – Former Prime Minister of India and the Iron Lady
J. R. D. Tata – Industrialist
Lata Mangeshkar – Most famous Singer
Sachin Tendulkar – The one and only Sachin – India’s most famous cricket stars
Sardar Vallabhai Patel – First Deputy Prime minister of India and the Iron man..
Why not add Ms Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi to this list as well as they all sacrificed themeselve for the country… 🙂
Millions of Indians voted for the Father of the Indian Constitution, Bhimrao Ambedkar to be the greatest Indian after 1947.
We all love the Dalit leader, Ambedkar who wrote our constitution and we proud of him.. But have you ever read our constitution? It’s compiled version of many constitutions around the world. (Mostly taken from United States and United Kingdom). What this constituion has done for us? It has enabled corruption in the society and harboured corrupt politicians and beurocrats. Did you all forget about Anna Hazare’s movement?
We strongly believe that this should have gone to Jawaharlal Nehru, the man who was equally responsible with Mr Gandhi for bringing freedom to our country. The man who put India in a global map, the man who lead India thru it’s inception time after the independence…
How did we get this wrong?
