India has undoubtedly been the source of knowledge and wisdom since the days of the Vedas. Innovative ideas and creative activities have brought many Indians to the forefront in different spheres, bringing to the country Nobel Prizes in literature, science, economics and peace.

They include the Noble Laureates and others who have carved out a niche for themselves.
