This site invites visitors to 'encounter' visionary Indian leaders in a unique manner. Thoughtfully assembled video-clips provide a rich gallery of images paired with eloquent words - audio and text - to make these personalities come alive. The idea is not only to provide thumbnail biographies, but also to facilitate user-friendly exploration of the life and work of the men and women whose dreams and visions have left an indelible imprint on the life of our nation. We begin with four illustrious Indian leaders, and gradually intend to add other distinguished sons and daughters of India.
