  1. The other day watching a TV Channel, there was a comparison done between Anand and Sachin as who is Greater among the two sports personalities. It is unfair to do comparisons between Sachin and Anand. The Reason being both represent two different sports : chess, cricket.
    Chess – Indoor, Cricket – Outdoor. We can compare two sportsman in the same categories i.e. Sachin or Sir Don Bradman, Anand or Kasparov but not two.

    I disagree with Michael Ferreira’s views quoting as “Anand Greater than Sachin”.

  2. the greatest human that time was only Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. they did smart work for Dalit and make best Indian Constitution. I would like to mention here that What hell is going on in india somebody making ambedkars cartoon and wrote wrong massage’s. I m great lover of Media but what “Bulshit” Happens with that i didn’t understand. Dr.Ambedkar did satyagraha for ‘Water’ which is free from nature, they took education in bad condition and they are real hero of our country that is why my vote to ‘ Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. 

  3. for me the greatest indian is sachin tendulkar who has got his impact on so many indians nobody other than him has got such an imotional attachment with each indian.
     

    • Its very difficult to Judge the greatest Indian After Mahatma Gandhi, father of the nation
      because there are greats like Mother Teresa, Dr Ambedkar, Dr A.P.J Kalam, Mr Narayana Murthy, Sir Ratan Tata, Lata Mangeshkar, Amitabh Bachchan and many more greats in different fields.

  4. Dr. Ambedkar is the greatest Indian ever. His was the only bloodless revolution recorded in the entire humankind. It was not easy to overthrow a system as lasting as Varnashram which lasted for   
    more than 2500 years. This even Gandhi, Nehru, Patel, Maulana, Vinoba,  altogether couldn’t do it. 

    • Dr.Ambedkar was founder of reservation system in India and this is shame that his rule is followed even in modern India in which all people are called “same level”…..so why this unfair things happens where all are same???

      • How can u told india is modern? R u not watch TV- Newspaper that several cases of castism? avaling the modern facilities is not a modern india it is depends upon your thinking and behavbiour.

      • How can u told india
        is modern? R u not watch TV- Newspaper that several cases of castism? avaling
        the modern facilities is not a modern india it is depends upon your thinking
        and behavbiour.

  5. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar is not only “Bharat Ratna” he is a “Vishva Ratna”, because CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY, LONDON displayed the list, out of 100 the first talented person is Dr. B. R. Ambedkar, but india’s media does not show this news.
    INDIAN MEDIA SHEM-SHEM

  6. 1:On which base Dr.Ambedkar is compared with Tendulkar? Both have different personalities,goals, expertise and the biggest differentiating factor is: their working time.

    This is applicable to all. you can’t say mother Teresa is greater than Lata or reverse is also true.2: Where is Bhgavan OSHO in your list?

  7. First of all this competition is wrong. How did some  of the other country people decided that Mr. Gandhi is the greatest Indian. Mr. Gandhi also was to be included in the competition. It should have been left over to the Indians to decide who is the greatest Indian.
    Mr.Gandhi was already decided as greatest Indian b’cause, those people knew that if it would have been left over to Indian people to decide the greatest Indian, Mr. Gandhi will loose the competition. This is the only reality.

  8. Dr. B.R. Ambedkar is one and only Greatest indian . His thoughts are more relevant to today’s era. Gandhian theories are dead philosophy for 2012 .Gandhi like Chaturvarna Ashram mean Caste system. Dr. Ambedkar wants equality in all Indians. Other people like Lata and Sachin they Zero in front of Indira and Neharu. Thats why Dr. B.R. Ambedkar is One and onely Greatest Indian Than Mr. Gandhi. 

  9. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar is one and only greatest Indian than Gandhi and any other than one. Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Give to all Indian woman freedom of education and vote. Babasaheb make rule in Constitution One man One Vote One Value. Babasaheb Ambedkar Destroy Untouchability. Dr. Ambedkar make Employment Offices for labors and workers. Dr.B.R. Ambedkar  Freed O.B.C.,/B.C/.,S.C.,/S.T./N.T./ S.B.C./ V.J.N.T. 85% people are free from Brahmin rule only because of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar. My Vote To only Dr.B.R. Ambedkar is the only one greatest Indian than Gandhi.      

    • Dr.Ambedkar was founder of reservation system in India and this is shame that his rule is followed even in modern India in which all people are called “same level”…..so why this unfair things happens where all are same???

      • reservation established by Manu, 1000s yrs ago was the foundation of ineqality.Reservations founded by Dr.Babasaheb is only an attempt to establish equalit.you biased people enjoyed reservations for 1000s of yrs n complainig of 60 yrs reservatoins,shame on you.

    • there is no competition between Gandhi and Dr. Ambedkar,
      Gandhi ideology lead to slave the shudras and women  as  in Hinduism
      Dr. Ambedkar ideology lead to r freedom for  Shudras and women
      Dr. Ambedar was and is only revolutionary Indiad fought for humanity.

      • this is proof of your backward mind and thought which is fruit of your own Hindu culture which can not make simple difference between right and wrong, black and white ,good and bad so go start reading some books and keep your brain open my friend.

    • yes ajit ji you are right, Ambedkar want equality. Dr Ambedkar freed 85 persent Indian people. He us greatest intellectual and scholar in the world So, Dr B R Ambedkar is the greatest Indian since Mahatma Gandhi.
