Vote for your favourite Indian! This list is a random one with only some names that we are proud of.
A R Rahman
He defines the modern Indian sound not only for us but for the world at large. Allah Rakha Rahman reached the height of the music world when this year he won two Oscars for Slumdog Millionaire- the first by any Indian.
APJ Abdul Kalam
He is often known as the father of India’s nuclear missile program, but Abdul Kalam likes to be known as a motivator for youth. After taking the office of President to a new vibrancy, Kalam spends his time igniting minds and gracefully getting checked at airports. Mother Teresa
She was born in Albania but the call of God brought her to heal the downtrodden of Kolkatta. Picking up the diseased and hungry from streets and caring for them like a mother, not just earned her the Nobel prize, but the reverence reserved for saints in this country. Lata Mangeskar
The Nightingale of India figures in the Guinness Book of world Records for singing the largest number of songs and even that is not enough as she continues to mesmerise generations with her soul stirring vocal talent. Sachin Tendulkar
The ‘Little Maestro’ has consistently brought laurels to the country over the years, and he continues to be an icon and a true role model with his calmness and dedication. A personification of grit and genius, he has not just broken records but set benchmarks for the world to follow. Satyajit Ray
His Pather Panchali is considered the Bible for any film-maker throughout the world. A filmmaker with a difference, Ray as a writer was known for his love for the esoteric and eeriness in his fiction as much as for his acumen in crafting amazing scientific tales. His creations, the gifted sleuth Feluda, and Professor Shanko have attained immortality in Bengali literature. Amartya Sen
From Shantiniketan to Oxford, the journey of this economist has been the most amazing one. He won India its first Nobel Prize for Economics. His Human Development Theory has been guiding India and many nations to the path of development. Abhinav Bindra
He brought unprecedented pride to the nation with his Beijing Olympics feat. The ace shooter has proved that greatness can be achieved if one has the right approach towards the goal. The first Indian to bag an individual Olympics gold is also an apt role model for the youth of the nation Amitabh Bachchan
He is unarguably the big daddy of Bollywood. Having starred in numerous blockbusters since the 70s, Bachchan’s claim to fame is larger than any Indian silver screen star. In an age when most hang up their shoes, he continues to inspire the younger generation of actors by his work. G. Madhavan Nair
Nair, a leading technologist in the field of rocket systems, made significant contribution to the development of multi-stage satellite launch vehicles, achieving self-reliance in independent access to space using indigenous technologies. He led the team of elite scientists that made India only the sixth country in the world to have reached the Moon. Now he has promised us Mars!
