www.100 Greatest Indians.com
The idea behind the compilation of the project of 100 Greatest Indians is to inspire the next generation of Indians. Those who contributed to Nation Building in the area of Freedom Struggle or in the fields of Arts, Civil Service, Economics, Literature & Education, Medicine, Military, Public Affairs, Science & Engineering, Social Work, Sports, Trade & Industry; and their work being attested and recognised and having impacted and continuing to impact the largest number of citizens are those who will be included in the list. The objective of compiling this list is to inspire ourselves to emulate these heroes and achieve greatness ourselves in every field of life.
Our aim is to first make every Child and Youth of our nation a “Good Indian”. A Responsible Citizen. And then inpire them to transform themselves to be a “Great Indian”, by pursuing and “striving towards excellence” in their area of calling, utilising their gifting, talent and skills sets “in all spheres of individual and collective activity, so that the nation constantly rises to higher levels of endeavour and achievement.” (– linking this project with the project based on Article 51A(j) of the Constitution of India)
The lives of these 100 Greatest Indians will inspire our nation’s children and youth to wholeheartedly press on with their dreams for our nation and their deeds to build our nation. This will be a series of blogs, articles and stories covering the inspiring lives of these 100 Greatest Nation Builders.
This project aims to tell the story of our “Ideal Indians” and our “Unsung Heroes”.
Our 2nd Prime Minister – Bharat Ratna Lal Bahadur Shastri has been chosen by us as the ideal icon of a leader who we feel will be the ideal role model for the next generation. He was born poor and without resources; yet he lived his life with impeccable integrity and rose to lead his nation. He had a dream for his country as a young boy and he followed his dream to fulfilment by achieving greatness for the country. We believe it is possible to inspire and develop in our next generation the national dreams and passionate commitment to take action through “Gyan” and “Vigyan”.
It is said that “No legacy is as rich as HONESTY”. Lal Bahadur Shastri was a man of transparent sincerity and high character. An exemplary citizen who became an inspiring leader worthy of our honour. His life is an example for the younger generation of India and the World to follow.
A lot of hard work has been put in conducting a detailed research into the life of Lal Bahadur Shastri and we endeavour to author a book on his life. The past 7 years have been spent in extensive research on Lal Bahadur Shastri’s life, his character formative years, his inspiring moral values and his impactful works. This includes in-depth research of various available records combined with comprehensive interviews with his family members. We have met with each family member of Lal Bahadur Shastri upto the 4th generation, as well as the extended family and people close to Lal Bahadur Shastri. We have delved into various archives and travelled across India in our pursuit and research. Based on this extensive research, the following projects are works-in-progress:
A Feature Film on Lal Bahadur Shastri:
We are currently involved in raising funds for an international feature film on the life of an “Ideal Indian” – our Second Prime Minister Bharat Ratna Lal Bahadur Shashtri.

“It shall be the duty of every citizen of India to uphold and protect the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India.”
– Article 51A(c) of the Constitution of India
“It shall be the duty of every citizen of India to defend the country and render national service when called upon to do so.”
– Article 51A(d) of the Constitution of India
“It shall be the duty of every citizen of India to develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of enquiry and reform.”
– Article 51A(h) of the Constitution of India
LAMP Trust has organised several Concerts and events to commemorate honour our the spirit embedded in the above clauses of the Constitution of India through the project: “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan, Jai Anusandhan”. Going forward, we plan to organise these Events annually across top 100 Cities across India.
The slogan “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” was coined by the 2nd Prime Minister of India, Lal Bahadur Shastri, on 21st October 1965 in Uruva village in Allahabad District, Uttar Pradesh, to motivate and inspire the two pillars of India, the Soldier and the Farmer. He later reiterated the slogan at another public gathering at the Ramlila Maidan in New Delhi. The slogan became a very popular slogan with almost every truck plying across the nation bearing this slogan painted on its body. Underlying this is the inner-most sentiments ‘Jai Hindustan’.
Soon after Shastri took over the prime ministership of India after Jawaharlal Nehru’s death, India was attacked by Pakistan. At the same time there was scarcity of food grains in the country. Shastri gave the slogan “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” to enthuse the soldiers to defend India and simultaneously cheering farmers to do their best to increase the production of food grains to reduce dependence on import. Under his leadership India faced and repulsed the Pakistani invasion of 1965. It is not only a matter of pride for the Indian Army but also for every citizen of the country. The war of 1965 was fought and won for our self-respect and our national prestige. For using our Defence Forces with such admirable skill, the nation remains beholden to Shri Lal Bahadur Shastri. He will be remembered for all times to come for his large heartedness and public service.
This slogan reverberates even today through the length and breadth of the country and is very much pertinent in today’s India.
On 20th May 1998, at a historic address from the site in Pokhran where 5 nuclear tests were conducted by India a week earlier, former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee recognised the contributions of Science & Technology for India by adding “Jai Vigyan” to former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri’s famous slogan of “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan”.
Our Hon’ble Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, on 3rd January 2019, added “Jai Anusandhan” to former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri’s famous slogan of “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan” and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s “Jai Vigyan” when he spoke on “Future India: Science and Technology” while giving the inaugural address at the 106th Indian Science Congress at the Lovely Professional University (LPU) in Phagwara near Jalandhar, Punjab. The new slogan for New India becomes “Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan, Jai Anusandhan” going forward to building an India of our future.
Our Prime Minister said the life and works of Indian scientists are a compelling testament of integration of deep fundamental insights with technology development and nation building. “Today’s new slogan is Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan, Jai Vigyan and Jai Anusandhan. I would like to add Jai Anusandhan to it,” he said.
He called for research, which is a fusion of Arts and Humanities, Social Science, Science and Technology.
