Famous People From India

India boasts of a rich cultural and spiritual heritage and when we talk of Indian men, one of the first images that comes to one’s mind is that of Mahatma Gandhi, fondly known by the Indians as ‘Father of the Nation’. Along with spirituality, Indians are also famous for their sharp intellect and their contributions to the world of science and mathematics. From Aryabhata to Brahmagupta, from Satyendra Nath Bose to C. P. Ramanujam, the influence of Indian men in the field of mathematics has been tremendous. World famous scientists like C. V. Raman, Homi Bhabha, and Meghnad Saha were also born in India. Indian men like Rabindranath Tagore, Prem Chand and Bankim Chandra Chatterjee have enriched Indian literature with their prolific writings while artists like Raja Ravi Varma and M. F. Husain have beautified not only Indian art but have also left their influence on world art.
