There are also a couple of chapters on Jainism and Buddhism, and facts on the reign of different rulers in ancient and medieval India. The book holds essential information on the European Invasion of India, and Pandey has incorporated chapters like Governor Generals of Bengal, Governor Generals of India, The Revolt of 1857, and Social and Cultural Uprisings. This section ends with facts on the viceroys of India, important national activities, and battles in the history of the country.


The Geography section begins with an introduction to outer space and physical facts about the world. Pandey educates his readers on the superlative details such as the biggest, longest, highest, and largest among the world’s physical features. He talks about the chief rivers in India and the important towns along their banks, major ports in India, significant river valley projects, and also the principal crops grown in the country.

Other chapters introduced in this section are National Parks and Wildlife Sanctuaries, Foreign Towns Associated with Industries, World’s Geographical Surnames, Indian Geography, and Indian States on International Boundaries.


The segment on Indian Polity is an excellent blend of the fundamental and valuable components of the constitution of democratic India. It helps readers build some awareness about the composition of the Constituent Assembly and the Preamble to the Constitution. Other concepts covered include features of the constitution that were imbibed from those of other countries, the different parts and schedules of the Constitution, the new states that were formed after Independence, and the fundamental rights of the people. Some of the other chapters are Forms of Writs, President, Vice President, Prime-Minister, Chief Minister, Attorney General of India, Controller and Auditor General of India, and The Governor.

Pandey also provides a lucid and thorough understanding of the Parliament of India and the State Legislature, The Supreme Court and High Court, the Union Public Service Commission (UPSC), the Election Commission, and the important amendments in the Constitution.


The section on Indian Economy consists of 12 chapters that talk about the banking system in India, Reserve Bank of India, Imperial Bank of India, and nationalization of banks. There are also concise but thorough chapters on the five year plans, poverty and unemployment, the Green Revolution, important industries, the national income of India, and the Indian tax structure.


Important facts pertaining to the subjects of Physics, Chemistry, and Biology have been compiled in the General Science section, including significant inventions and discoveries, important scientific instruments, and explanations of common phenomena.

Full of mistakes

I can't understand why this book is getting good reviews! Are you guys even reading it? It's loaded with mistakes.
I can't mention all here but I'll point out one that should stop you from buying books by this author (Manohar Pandey) in future.

All Good Things Come In A Small Package

If you are still thinking why people are out here giving appreciations on a Rs. 25 book then you should buy this to see for yourself. Amazingly this books covers such a vast area and maintains such a great standard for a low cost book...ITS SIMPLY AWESOME.
Buying is SUPER RECOMMENDED...Place an order of Rs. 100 (add multiple items if necessary to save shipping price) and just add this book..Trust me your extra expense will turn out to be more than fruitful....Buy before this goes out of stock or the price is raised.
