Mother Teresa of Calcutta has been voted the greatest Indian since the country's independence in 1947 in an Indian magazine survey (BBC, 12 August, 2002)
Top ten Indians
Mother Teresa
Jawaharlal Nehru
Vallabhbhai Patel
Indira Gandhi
JRD Tata
BR Ambedkar
Dhibhai Ambani

She was the only one on the list not an Indian by birth, led the tally in most of the states in India and across all age groups in the survey carried out by leading English-langauge magazine, Outlook.
