History TV18 & CNN-IBN kick-off nationwide poll for ‘The Greatest Indian’

Over 40,000 votes received on the day one on the website; the initiative remained top tending topic on twitter

BestMediaInfo Bureau | Delhi | June 5, 2012

HISTORY TV18 and CNN IBN have revealed the names of 50 nominees for the channels’ biggest local initiative –“The Greatest Indian”. The list, being released for a nationwide poll, contains the who’s who of iconic Indians across various spheres, which have had the maximum impact on the nation since independence. One can cast his vote at www.thegreatestindian.in

From Jawaharlal Nehru and Lata Mangeshkar to Vikram Sarabhai and E Shreedharan, the list is a fascinating read on some of the greatest Indians who have shaped the nation in the last 64 years. Of 50 nominees, 15 have received the Bharat Ratna, 13 have played a role in the freedom struggle while 6 are women. Among the 31 super achievers, Pt. Ravi Shankar (92), M S Swaminathan (87) and A B Vajpayee (88) are the senior most, while Sachin Tendulkar (39) is the youngest.

The initiative is based on the path-breaking series featured on BBC called ‘The Greatest Briton’, and is set to trigger a national debate on who is the Greatest Indian after Mahatma Gandhi. Launched in 2002 in the UK, the initiative reached out to millions of viewers and broke significant viewership records there. An astounding 21 countries have successfully adopted this format since then, and it now promises to create history here in India too.

Commenting on initiative, Rajdeep Sardesai, Editor-in-Chief IBN18 Network said “We believe that this is a one-of-a-kind initiative in the life of a nation that should both excite and educate. I'm sure this series will trigger an enthusiastic debate in homes, offices & public places around the country. Just from the jury discussions and internal debates in the news room, I've got a real sense of how passionately people feel about the initiative. We hope that the series will continue to provoke debate and encourage people to cast their vote for the Greatest Indian.”

Speaking on the occasion, Ajay Chacko, President, A+E Networks | TV18, stated, “HISTORY TV18’s attempt has been to create interest across generations in the subject in an informal and entertaining way. This partnership with CNN IBN enables HISTORY TV18 to bring forth the inspiring figures over the years, after the Mahatma, who have had the maximum impact on the country's present and future. While the jury and nationwide polls will ultimately lead to the search for that one individual whose contribution to India has been overwhelmingly acknowledged as the most enduring, it also gives us Indians a chance to be aware of the contributions of many other great individuals from diverse fields.”

Dilip Venkatraman, CEO - CNN-IBN at Network18, added, “At CNN IBN, we have always believed in celebrating India with its unmatched spirit- its will to survive, succeed and thrive against all odds. What better way to be a part of this path-breaking initiative to find out who the Greatest Indian is.  An initiative such as this is all the more relevant today, with challenges our country faces, as it would be an interesting reflection of the mood of the nation.”

Myleeta Aga, General Manager & Creative Head of BBC Worldwide Productions India, said, “BBC Worldwide is thrilled to be partnering with History TV18 to bring this format to the Indian audience. We have no doubt that the interest and debate around identifying the “greatest Indian since Independence“will make the series a huge success in India as well. “

The jury for the entire process consists of a panel of 28 eminent Indians from different walks of life, the likes of Chairman, UIDAI-Nandan Nilekani; Editor-in-Chief, The Indian Express Group-Shekhar Gupta;  Three-Time World Billiards Champion- Michael Ferreira; Leading Author and Historian- Ramachandra Guha; Author and Member, Lok Sabha- Shashi Tharoor; Acclaimed Film Director, Writer and Editor- Raju Hirani; Film Writer, Director, Actor- Girish Karnad; Leading Political Scientist- Prof. Yogendra Yadav, Eminent Jurist- Soli Sorabjee, Leader of Opposition in the Rajya Sabha- Arun Jaitley, National Award Winning Actor- Shabana Azmi & Noted Jurist- Harish Salve among others.

The entire process, one of the most thorough and meticulous in the industry, is being audited by Grant Thornton. Along with the nationwide poll, equal weightage will be given to the jury’s selection as well as a separate market research poll conducted by The Nielsen Company.  This process will be followed in both phases of the initiative, the first being to arrive at a shortlist of the top 10 ‘Greats’ and the second, the selection of the ‘Greatest Indian’. The shortlist of top 10 ‘Greats’ is slated to be revealed on July 1 after which the second round of voting begins.

The initiative will culminate with the announcement of the Greatest Indian in a glittering ceremony to be telecast around Independence Day this year.

As part of the nationwide poll, viewers can cast they’re vote by visiting the website TheGreatestIndian.in or giving a missed call to a unique number assigned to their nominee of choice.

    Greatest Indian’ he is selfish(he is not giving single naya paise to his fans and he is not giving even his daughter’s marriage invitation to his fans and requested not to attend the marriage), rajini is chain smoker and rajini is doing antisocial activities like encouraging his fans to do cigarette smoking and cut-out installation before the theatres(fans are spending their hard earned money).he did not pay his INCOME TAX PROPERLY but mahatma GandhiJI not like this . Please don’t INSLULT OUR FATHER OF NATION to add this bullshit, so kindly remove rajini’s name in the 50 person after GANDHIJI. IF YOU WAND TO ADD THE RAJINI in top 50 after Gajini mohammed not GANDHIJI What achievement made by rajini for Indian society? ONLY CIGRETT SMOKING? THERE ARE LOT OF GOOD actors in Indian cinema like kamalhaasan(the first Indian actor to encourage their fans into social actitvity like blood ,donotion eye donation, he is first person to donate his all parts of body and he is paying regular income tax and also got award by income tax department,he also fighting against cancer and AIDS ) amirkhan,,mohanlal ,and surya,

    Hello freinds. for choosing of greatest indian after gandhi we have to independenty and without prejudicely evaluate the contribution of Dr. Ambedkar for the concury and mankind. We can say that in what the adverse cercumstances Dr. Ambedkar contributed for the nation, Dalits, womens and weaker section of society that is remarkable. This makes the Dr. Ambedkar greatest indian not only after the Gandhi but also before the gandhi.

  • Janbandhu C- 6 years ago

    Dr B.R.AMBEDKAR IS NOT ONLY GREATEST INDIAN BUT HE IS THE WORLDS GREATEST PERSONALITY WHICH IS PROVEN BY COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY BY HONOURING HIM AS SCHOLAR OF THE SCOLERS IN THE WORLD. Columbia University conducted prolong survey/study and selected 64 eminent scholars who had graduated from the university for last 250 years and about their subsequent contribution to humankind in their respective countries. Yes, I busted and overwhelmed with tear of joy that, Dr. B.R.Ambedkar stood first. So is the authentication and glaring fact that Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar is “MAN OF THE MILLENNIUM”,

  • Shekhar- 6 years ago

  • sagar jadha- 6 years ago

    Jai Bhim

  • Senthil- 6 years ago

    To be frank we have to accept onething. I totally dont understanding why some people are expecting money or help from Rajni. It is purly his wishes on how to spen his earning. It is just a bullshit that if we are pricing one person only if he is giving some money to others. we should avoid these kind of BEGGING mentolity. How much earning Mahathma gave to india, how much ambethkar gave to india..we have to learn the good things instead of stating nonsence statements. I personally felt this is the fantastic survey to think about our leaders and to think "Is there anybody with those leader's qualification' It will help every indian to atleast think about what is my responsiblity. After Mahatha NOBODY in India is very SIMPLE(even if highly wealthy) and without Headweight(while in Topmost level) and down to earth(aftern achieve millions of hearts) most importantly Genunity(while in the position to meat all BIG people).. ONLY RAJNI RAJNI RAJNI CAN BE..NO ONE DENAY THIS.. we have lot of this we can lear and follow from Rajni.. Cigarate, drink, spening his own earning..Need not to follow all these since it purly his personal..if some thing goes wrong only he will be suffer.. not public or indian. But the quality which I mentioned one step above goes wrong..then it will affect socity.. I hope, the person who have writtend about Rajni, Definitely he would have not came from South India..And everyone know the reason.. Please try to give some valid and useful statement in this survy instead of writting unwanted and scraps. Long live Tamil, Jay Hind..

    Each Person have its own identity because of his overall capacity to gives for other people's development.You can't compared Gandhiji With Babasaheb Ambedkar because both are whatever create which is pure thought of "Dhamma"-(Not any religion) and that is the life of every person. some people created like Gandhiji & Babasaheb some people are trying to reach that level. So if we really find out The Greatest Indian the first Name from my side is "Siddharth Gautam Budhha" because he is real man who shows how to live with other person . As per my knowledge the Greatest Indian stat from "Siddharth Gautam Budhha".

    Dr. B.R. Ambedkar had in the shaping of modern India.In modern India Dr.Babasaheb Ambedkar was multi-faceted personality, architect of India's constitution, a great social reformer, a humanist, champion of the downtrodden and proponent of national unity. One of the illustrious sons of India, he achieved fame because of his achievements in various areas as leader of the poor, a powerful orator, a constitutionalist par excellence, a jurist, an astute politician, renowned author and the exponent of "DHAMMA CHAKRA". It was he who initiated the movement for social justice and equality in India. As years pass by, his personality is progressively achieving a greater significance.

  • Ramakrishna- 6 years ago

    No Doubt, Dr B R Ambedkar is Greatest Indian. It’s a History TV18 & CNN-IBN’s intelligent move in rescuing Mr. M K Gandhi keeping away from Nominee list.

  • Chandra- 6 years ago

    No doubt, one and only greatest Indian Dr B R Ambedkar, my humble request to include Mahatma Jyotiba Phule. Thanks in advance…

  • Nelson- 6 years ago

    Who bestowed the title the greatest indian on Mr M K Gandhi.You three guys ( channels CNN IBN, TV18 and Outlook )have made a deliberate attempt to subvert and distort the facts of history to the younger generation of Indians by this campaign who is the greatest after Gandhi is the reflection of you guys inferior attitudes.I strongly believe that even a lay man will have fair mind to put the question correct as "who is the greatest Indian".Therefore I appeal you 3 and Jury members to include M K Gandhi also in the list and let People of India decide who is the greatest wheather it is Dr B.R.Ambedkar or Mr Gandhi. Why u 3 r protecting Gandhi by not including him in the poll.More over it is ridiculous that putting some 50 odd people i.e achievers of personal goals , Business,Arts ,cinema and sports with a person of Dr B.R.Ambedkar calibre he should be compared with only world personalities and not only he is the Champion of social causes in India but for the entire universe.He is the epitome of human intellect.So therefore re phrase your question as who is the greatest Indian.( Full stop).

  • Ankaiah- 6 years ago

    Nobody in list can be compared with DR B R Ambedkar, the word "Greatest Indian" would not be sufficient for him. As a leader who brought the views of DR B R Ambedkar in action was Kanshiramji. Hence my Vote is for Kanshi Ram 08082891006. And why the channels CNN IBN, TV18 did not included Mr. M K Gandhi among the Nominee list? Whether M K Gandhi do not deserve it? or You Guys have decided the poll as the Greatest Indian after Gandhi? I request the Channels CNN IBN, TV18 to research and reveal the true History, not the History which Congress had published so for since Independence. If that is done. Unanimously the every body will understand the "Greatest Indian" of modern History is always " Dr B R Ambedkar".

    The Greatest Indian is Dr B R Ambedkar. I voted for him because he is the man who has done a lot for the suppressed people of this country and achieved top level of political post even in a very worst economic & social condition and devoted his whole life to improve the condition of suppressed people. He made such a provision in the constitution that even a poor man of this country can be PM. He has given the right of vote to every adult indian, otherwise there was a plan during preparation of the constitution that only 15% so called upper cast would get right to vote and form the government and rule over 85% rest of the Indians. This is the incredible right by which the day will come the supremacy of the cast system will be demolished and all the social evils will be destroyed. The day will come poor people will be politically empowered and will do the best of best to eliminate poverty, unemployment and development for the country.

  • KRISHNA TUM- 6 years ago

    Jawahar lal nehru stands so tall amongst the political leaders that other's are pygmies in front of him.He strenghtened the institutions like judiciary,parliament,RBI.....etc which form the bedrock of any democracy.Strenghthening these institutions to act independently and at the peak of his popularity, defied the dictum "POWER CORRUPTS AND ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY".All visionaries are controversial that too governing india is an ardous task without succumbing to casteist,fascist.....or other forces.Look at the banana republics across our borders in south asia and at our INDIA.We stand tall ,media eventhough is free but has succumbed to sensationalism but remains a vigilant ,vibrant platform in keeping the citizens interest alive.Breaking the oligarchy,which is not visible ,but all of us feel has diminished to a small extent is one of the achievements which can be attributed to media and in turn India has to thank our greatest indian ever, inaccordance to my opinion Jawaharlal nehru.Strengthening the institutions,inviting critisms and also contrversies eventhough he had the popularity to be anything in our transition stages from a feudal seup....governed nominally by british and nurturing our democracy ...yeah..He is my choice for THE GREATEST INDIAN.

  • Joginder Pa- 6 years ago

    Ambedkar, Greatest Indian after Independence is a great news. The only defect in this exercise was that it was required to find out ‘Greatest Indian after Gandhi’. This was probably because of the reason to keep Gandhi isolated from this exercise whom India has already declared ‘father of the nation’ and can not afford to see any other person, declared the ‘Greatest Indian after Independence’. They are able to save their ego and humiliation by excluding Gandhi from this contest as even with Gandhi as the contestant, the result would have remained unchanged and Gandhi would have faced defeat at the hands of Ambedkar, once again through this contest. Media, in particular CNN-IBN, has once again saved the day for Gandhi, sixty four years after he was shot dead by his own countryman. This CNN-IBN survey is only a partial tribute to Dr. B R Ambedkar, who carries highest respect in the hearts of all forward thinking Indians and in particulars all Scheduled Caste, Scheduled Tribe, Backward classes, females etc. for whom he is not only the Greatest Indian but is a real Messiah and became instrumental in substantially uplifting their honour by providing them equal status and thereby helped India in National Building.
