3 Mahatma Gandhi Mahatma Gandhi Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was the preeminent leader of the Indian independence movement in British-ruled India.

The greatest ever to walk on earth

This man changed the world, a man that we knew and could relate. Different from religion he focused on spirituality and for that reason he deserves my vote.

If I ever become dictator of the world, I will rule using his ideals. I will use peace and my primary goal will be to make everyone happy without disrupting the earth.

Name proves it all

He was an awful person, but at the same time he changed billions of lives and set the stage for modern conflicts.

Although he is the man of hell, we all can agree he is very important to our everyday history. Without Adolf, our world would be completely different!

Just because he was a horrible man doesn't mean he was not important.

He was the country's first black chief executive, and the first elected in a fully representative democratic election.

A selfless leader, modest, popular and yet a down to earth global icon who paid most of his attention to people he leads and "suffer little children" thus the Mandela Children Fund came to being. He's one African who walk the talk..

Thank you South Africa owes you a big thanks for all you have done to the country

20 Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system, X rays, Radio, Remote Control, Laser, and electric motors. Tesla developed and used more.

Nikola Tesla accelerated technological progress by unquantifiable amounts. He was the Leonardo the Vinci of the 19th and early 20th centuries. Trying to put his contributions into perspective is difficult - without him, we would have a massively inefficient electric grid powered by DC current. We wouldn't have wireless recharging. The development of the electric motor would have been delayed by several decades. With the ability to instantly memorize everything he saw or read, Nikola Tesla's mind was so unbelievably strong that we'll likely be discovering things he had imagined hundreds of years from now.

He was one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity - pele10brazil
