10 Heroes of "60 years of Independent India"

August 14th, 2007

On the occasion of Sixtieth year of Independent India, Outlook, an Indian Business Magazine has released a list of Sixty Great Indians in 60 years of our Republic. The list is picked by three eminent jury B.G. Verghese, Mushirul Hasan and Mukul Kesavan. I am bit disappointed by the fact that Mushirul Hasan thinks Sardar Patel doesn’t deserve a place in “Sixty Great Indians”. Sardar Patel is one of the name which I will always keep on top, considering his contribution towards the integration of “Republic of India”.

Here is my list of 10 Great Indians of Independent India.

  1. Sardar Patel
  2. Indira Gandhi
  3. Homi Jahangir Bhabha
  4. Narayan Murthy
  5. JRD Tata
  6. Raj Kapoor
  7. Kapil Dev
  8. Balbir Singh
  9. Mother Teresa
  10. Amartya Sen
