The phrase "Famous personalities of India" conjures up images of
well-known people for many of us, such Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar
Vallabhbhai Patel. There are a significant number of other Indians
who have made enormous contributions to the realms of politics,

icons stand as monuments to the nation's independence movement.

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was born in Porbandar, India. His
father was the minister of one of the princely states nearby. While
he was a young man, he finished his legal education at University
College London. He then worked as an advocate in Bombay, where
he had considerable success, before returning home to continue his
legal career. He embarked on a lecture tour across India after

politics and education. Jawaharlal Nehru was born in Allahabad on
November 14, 1889. (India). He attended Cambridge University and
Harrow School in London before deciding to pursue law, despite his

administrator. From 1966 until her assassination in 1977 by her
bodyguards, she held the position of prime minister. She was

respects. Because of her excellent sense of direction, for example, no
one could ever get lost when pursuing her (and this is why India is
still on top of its game today). It was impossible to control the large
crowds that gathered around Indira whenever she made an
appearance in public. She was a superb speaker, as well.
