Famous Indian - Indian Celebrities
Indians are argumentative by nature and it is this inherent quality that has played a vital role in shaping India in its present form. With a rich civilization heritage of over 5000 years Indians are probably among the few people in the world who have a continuous uninterrupted past. The Indian nationality consists of many regional ethno-linguistic groups, reflecting the rich and complex history of India. The history of the Indian people goes back to the Indus Valley Civilization and since then there have been many Indians who have left their lasting legacy in different fields, be it philosophy, science, arts, culture and sports. Great philosophers like Buddha and Mahavira showed people an alternative way of life and gave birth to new religions. Ancient Indian mathematicians Aryabhata, Bhaskara and Brahmagupta invented the concept of zero and the decimal system. Great Indian writers like Kalidasa, Premchand, Rabindranath Tagore and others vividly portrayed the social life during their era and made the world of literature a lot richer by their contribution.
