‘Great’ is a label that sits easily with Gandhi. But who, after the Mahatma, is the greatest Indian to have walked our soil? Which Indian has touched and changed our lives for the better, forever? Which Indian has made us hold our heads high and inspired us to aspire?

  1. Outlook has to make Gandhi as the FIRST greatest indian.
    If we look at Gandhi’s life, and his arguments with Dr. Ambedkar, in his articles at “Harijan” magazine, we can see that how biased Gandhi was with a religious obligation to Rama, his God.
    Ambedkar, on the contrary, though criticized Hinduism’s casteism, he gave an outlook for all Indians, both oppressing and oppressed castes. Unless Hinduism is purified (“Hindu Code Bill” , “Hindu Purification Act”, by Ambedkar), we can not make India a stable nation.
    People were not ready at that time, with religious emotions, not with logical reasons.

    The question to ask is that who is the greatest indian? Buddha , I think was the greatest first, then comes Ambedkar.
    Instead, outlookIndia already crowned Gandhi as greatest.
    Any decisions based on religious sentiments and emotions can not stand the test of time. Nobody cares about Gandhi’s peace, Hindus and Muslims living together, and his village economical development.
    Ambedkar clearly mentioned that Hinduism and Islam are antithesis to each other (“Pakistan or Partition” – Dr. BR. Ambedkar), and hence can not co-exist. Hence division of Pakistan is inevitable.
    Now a days, focus had been shifted to cities ONLY now, with IT industry leading, and Chidambaram’s mining industrian creed killing tribals in villages. People forget that Gandhian village development is the center for indian development and city life is the continuum of villages.
    Gandhism is vanishing, being ignored.
    Ambedkar’s work is based on logical reasons, not religious.


  2. Dr.Ambedkar has given INDIAN CONSTITUTION which controls our judicial system and our social life while execution of such type of soulful work BABA SAHAB can’t get proper attention from their citizens ,this is so shameful for us so think about it very seriously without any biased attitute..
