  1. Its ver good Effort.. I appriciate… But You have not included one of the most prominent person who changed the thought process of every Indian.. Swami Vivekananda 12th January 1863-4th july 1904….

  2. It soo useful fr mr… becoz m doing numerological , mystical analysis … survey..

  3. Ustad Bismillah Khan (March 21.3.1916 – 21.8.2006)), Bharat Ratna (2001), Fellow of Sangeet Natak Akademi (1994), Talar Mausiquee from Republic of Iran (1992), Padma Vibhushan (1980), Padma Bhushan (1968), Padma Shri (1961), Sangeet Natak Akademi Award (1956), Tansen Award by Govt. of Madhya Pradesh, 3 medals in All India Music Conference, Calcutta (1937), “Best Performer” in All India Music Conference, Allahabad (1930). Bismillah Khan was perhaps single-handedly responsible for making the shehnai a famous classical instrument. He brought the shehnai to the center stage of Indian music with his concert in the Calcutta All India Music Conference in 1937

  4. it is very much important data thank you for giving us free pdf to download ……………..keep it save and update it as early as possible day by day……………………….thanks

  5. I am really ashamed because i didnot find the great indian, father of nation mahatma jyotirao phule’s birthday mentioned in the list. It might be because he was from bahujan samaj & fought for women & dalits’s human rights. Today 11th April 1827 is his birthday date. I hope you will add his birthday date & honour him.
