Greatest Indians of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Insan (born 15 August 1967) is an Indian guru, music producer, singer-songwriter, actor, filmmaker, and convicted rapist. He has been the head of the social group Dera Sacha Sauda (DSS) since 1990... read more

He is a great Indian saint. He says that humanity is the religion. He is involved in 133 humanitarian works, such as blood donation, tree plantation, body donation for research, skin donation, eye donation, clean campaigns, and 127 others.

He has qualities that we don't expect from a normal human being. He is a singer, writer, director, and many more. He always says that he is the only man.

The humanitarian works that the saint is doing can't be imagined by others. A saint is one who lives for others, and Saint Gurmeet Ram Rahim truly embodies this. He is a true saint who sacrifices his life for the sake of others.

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

Yes, he had some flaws, but who doesn't? He had vision. He was a true visionary who understood the power of morality, non-violence (leading to a moral position), the masses (and how they are energized by a vision), and sacrifice (he gave up official leadership of a free India). He understood the importance of inclusivity, ensuring all religions and castes were part of the freedom movement. He also understood the importance of forgiveness - that not punishing or demonizing future generations of a particular caste, religion, or country for the sins of past or present generations presented the best and quickest way of achieving transformation.

So many countries obtained freedom from colonial rule, including the USA, but none achieved it in the unique way India did. None of them were led in their freedom struggle by a man with such unique vision, principles, and personality as Mahatma Gandhi!

3 A. P. J. Abdul Kalam Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen "A. P. J." Abdul Kalam was the 11th President of India from 2002 to 2007. A career scientist turned politician, Kalam was born and raised in Rameswaram, Tamil Nadu, and studied physics and aerospace engineering.

An inspirer, a scientist, a president, and a role model for all youngsters. He cannot be compared with anyone on this list.

He deserves to be on the top, not that moronic baba and Gandhi. Please vote for the Missile Man of India, because of whom we can proudly say that we have a strong military.

He is the true hero of our country. He provided valuable thoughts and contributions to India. Did you know that his property list includes three pairs of pants, six t-shirts, two coats, and one flat? The flat is also the property of the scientists' committee.

5 B. R. Ambedkar Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar (14 April 1891 – 6 December 1956), popularly known as Babasaheb or B. R. Ambedkar, was an Indian jurist, economist, politician and social reformer who inspired the Dalit Buddhist movement and campaigned against social discrimination towards Untouchables (Dalits), while also... read more

Dr. B.R. Ambedkar is the Karl Marx of India, a genius, and a true emancipator of the underprivileged and women. He is a man of great insight and vision, a great revolutionary. The entire country of India owes him a lot. If India is to evolve into the spiritual guru of the world, as Sri Aurobindo dreamed, it will only be possible when social justice is achieved.

May all the struggles of Dr. B.R. Ambedkar for social justice become fruitful! His success is the success of humanity! His success is the sure sign of human evolution!
