The Top Ten
1 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

If one tries to study his work, he will come to know that Babasaheb is the greatest man ever. I don't have words to express his greatness. To understand his greatness, one needs to acquire tremendous knowledge in several disciplines.

People are not even able to match his educational achievements even after a century, which he achieved against all odds. Then think of his other great achievements in several other fields.

He was the most intelligent person of that time. His work done for society is now benefiting the weaker sections. He was the best freedom fighter and the king of the pen.

I think Babasaheb is the only person who sacrificed his family and children for the welfare of society and for equality. Dr. Ambedkar was a great personality and truly the father of the Indian Constitution.

2 Martin Luther King Jr. Martin Luther King Jr. (born Michael King Jr.; January 15, 1929 – April 4, 1968) was an African American minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the civil rights movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968.

He was an incomparable and devoted champion of rights for all. No one can compare to him. He had the most inclusive and forgiving vision of them all.

4 Jyotirao Phule Jyotirao Govindrao Phule was an Indian activist, thinker, social reformer and writer from Maharashtra.

He was the greatest humanitarian, who along with his wife Savitribai, worked hard against social inequality to educate women and the downtrodden. Jyotiba's efforts to uplift the so-called lower caste Harijans and suggest British Government agrarian reforms aimed to remove the poverty of farmers and the working class. He spent his entire life against all odds, which is unparalleled in human history.

If the father of modern India, Dr. Bhimrao Ambedkar, considered him his teacher, then imagine how great he was. Great salute to Mahatma Jyotibaa Phule.

5 Nelson Mandela Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid activist who served as the first president of South Africa from 1994 to 1999.

6 Savitribai Phule Savitribai Jyotirao Phule was an Indian social reformer and poet. Along with her husband, Jyotirao Phule, she played an important role in improving women's rights in India during British rule.

Because of her work, the doors of schools are now open to all women.

She fought for women's education and is revered like a goddess by all women and girls.

7 Guru Gobind Singh Guru Gobind Singh; born Gobind Rai, was the 10th Sikh Guru, a spiritual master, warrior, poet and philosopher.

He sacrificed his whole family for mankind. He was a spiritual leader, philosopher, poet, and a great warrior. He introduced the Five Ks and commanded the Khalsa to wear them at all times. He sacrificed his father, mother, and four sons but never complained, accepting it as the will of God.

Guru Gobind Singh ji sacrificed his four sons, mother, father, and everyone for the sake of mankind.

He sacrificed his whole family. There's no other sacrifice in world history like his.

Salute to you a thousand times.
