Often war heroes are glorified so that they become a source of inspiration for the generations after them. In some case in India, warriors even enjoy almost divine status for the legacy that they leave behind. But what really separates great warriors from the good ones is that they not only are revered among their own masses but find profound respect among their enemies too.
India as a country has had rich, yet bloody past. Every once in awhile, someone has risen to the occasion to fight for the people and the country. In this land of brave hearts, who can be awarded the title of the greatest warrior in the history of India?
