Bharat: Gandhi Ke Baad Duniya Ke Vishaaltam Loktantra Ka Itihaas (Hindi) documents the history of India after it received independence from the British rule.
Summary Of The Book
Bharat: Gandhi Ke Baad Duniya Ke Vishaaltam Loktantra Ka Itihaas (Hindi) is a book that makes its mark starting from its title. Most history textbooks and reference texts end at the most important date in Indian history, 15 August 1947. In reality though, a large chunk of Indian history lies hidden in the era after independence. During this time, India and Indian democracy, survived vicious attacks and threats of division along the lines of religion, class, caste, and language. The republic of India has however remained strong and united. It’s this experience of our nation post-independence that fills the pages of this book.
Ramachandra Guha explains through this book the struggle, pain, and humiliation endured by the world’s largest democracy. He also writes about the large number of strikes, protests, and conflicts that haunted India for long. He, however, doesn’t stop at that. He also writes about the various Indian accomplishments that made the country proud during this period.
Considering the history of India, it’s certain that this nation would have had its fair share of extraordinary people. The readers will come across fresh insights and most likely view things in a different light when reading about these personalities. Guha then goes on to document the feelings and thoughts of the lesser-known people, such as the tribals, peasants, workers, and women, that make India what it is today.
Bharat: Gandhi Ke Baad Duniya Ke Vishaaltam Loktantra Ka Itihaas (Hindi) is extensively researched. Guha’s objectivity in studying and writing about India’s history is easily visible. The writing is elegant and the work is scholarly. The book is an easy read because Guha adopts a lucid style of narration.

Guha's rare account in Hindi is more fascinating; a must read!India after Gandhi was without fail Guha’s magnum opus. A true masterpiece! When it came, it was appreciated all over and made it the best book of that year. For me, it was perhaps the most researched book on India’s political history since her Independence. A must read not only for the history students, but for every one who holds some stakes in our beloved country. Sushant Jha has translated a sensation, and, I must say, it couldn’t have been easy for him and surely grilled him pretty hard. Translation for any book seems easy if one has a command over that language, but, greatness lies in ma… (Expand)

Biased WritingLots of my friends recommended this book to me but some how i found it biased. It looks influenced by a particular political party a lot. All though good book for the one who don't know anything about India history. But i would recommend to check other references for the same incidents as mentioned in the book.

A Literary delight for Hindi ReadersFirst of all thanks to RC Guja and then to Sushant Jha for translating the Historical epic in vernacular language …..It’s always welcome for scholars and students to read such a voluminous compendium of history in Hindi which was either beyond their reach or they were oblivious of its availability.

Bharat Gandhi ke Baad, an apt translationIndia After Gandhi, no doubt is one on the most condensed works for one to get a feel of India's motley historical and political hues. But the translation done by Sushant Jha has made it possible for Hindi readers to savour this enlightening piece of work. Although I had read the english version, nevertheless I bought the Hindi version too and read it. I was most happy to find that the translator had kept in mind the emotional content of the author as well as kept the sctipt tight. Good work Sushant Jha!
