Argumentative Indian is a masterpiece on skepticism of Indian culture and tradition which was narrated by the Nobel prize winner in a striking manner. It also deals with the traditional history of Indian over two and half millennia. There is a lot of controversy over the religions that were born in India and the religions that came into India due to the Foreign invasions and Amartya Sen has given a complete cognition in a precise manner that is acceptable by all Indians. Amartya Sen has given the views of some of the greatest Indians such as the Mahatma and Gurudev "Tagore" who are of the sa…

Many essays are quite relevant in contemporary India and urges us to look for and different dimension of the issue at hand. I think the ways rationale was backed with multiple references from history dating back to 400 CE makes this book as an exceptional read. I feel delighted while skimming pages of this book.
Must read for those who have interest in history of Indian culture and social scenario
