Couple of Indians like you make rest of us ashamedly unprideful.

By the way ... who is Tendulkar? Is that the billionaire who sells stuff in television ads? Selling shaving creams and soft drinks ... yes, makes him a legend all right.

By the one more of by the way way ... you didn't list Saina in the list ... hardly any Indians knows her accomplishment either neither.
Looks like sarci you again.

Anyway, for general public info, these are world champions in the respective sports. In fact 3 of them are in billiard and hve won multiple times (Michael Ferreira, Pankaj Advani and Geet Sethi). Michael ferreira was the one who refused an award lower than Gavaskar. Prakash Padukone was the first world cup winner in badminton, but guess less than 1% of his daughter's fans would know him.. The only non world champ but olympic champ is Abhinav Bindra. His gold in 2008 was the first ever Individual gold in olympics for this 1.2 Billion country.

One person i forgot is Vishwanathan Anand. Saina will make it to the list if she wins the world cup. Winning the australian series does not make her a world champ.
