Since independence in 1947 India has been transformed from an impoverished agrarian nation into a potential global economic superpower. India presides over the world's largest democracy, embracing not only countless cultures, languages and religions but also a population exceeding one billion. Despite taking great strides in addressing poverty, there remains a distinct rural-urban economic divide and India's emerging image as a global economic force sits uncomfortably with the harsh reality of its human development statistics.
However, in midst of all odds and difficulties, India has great many scholars and scientists who are capable to put India in line with the developed countries of the world.
Here an effort is made to present the autographs of such scholars and scientists who have brought glory to India by putting its name on the map of the world.
