India After Gandhi: The History Of The World's Largest Democracy (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 524

India After Gandhi: The History Of The World's Largest Democracy is an intricately researched book that captures India’s triumphs and failures in the last sixty years.

Summary Of The Book

India After Gandhi: The History Of The World's Largest Democracy, published in 2007, takes an in-depth look into the history of this country, since its independence from the British Raj in 1947. The author has skillfully reconstructed the last six decades of India’s past. Guha explains how the country was divided by religion, caste, language, and yet it established itself as an independent, united, and democratic nation.

India After Gandhi: The History Of The World's Largest Democracy studies the conflicts and glories that the world’s largest and least likely democracy has gone through. This book focuses on the integration of Muslims and Hindus post-partition, the defeat against the Chinese, and the extraordinary execution of elections. Guha has also given fresh insights into the life of India’s first Prime Minister, Jawaharlal Nehru. This book also focuses on Indira Gandhi’s resolve lead to the liberation of Bangladesh. Furthermore, the book speaks of the dark days of the Emergency, which lead to the abolishment of civil liberties and judicial independence. In addition to analysing well-known personalities, Guha has also covered the lives of farmers, musicians, tribals, and workers.

India After Gandhi: The History Of The World's Largest Democracy presents the contrasting picture of India, and shows readers how India’s strength lies in its democracy. The book has been meticulously researched, and beautifully written. It won the Sahitya Akademi Award for English in 2011, and has been chosen as the Book of the Year by The Wall Street Journal, The Economist, and Outlook.

A novel on India

The beauty with which Ramachandra Guha has penned this book makes it such a pleasant read that you feel it is a novel and not an account on history.

Well written...but

About Flipkart, awesome quick packaging and delivery and a great deal.
About the book, it is extremely well documented, which was great. However, the author seems to be in love with the Nehru-Gandhi family and thinks that the sun shone out of every orifice of the family, which sometimes looks li…

Detailed account of india between 1950-2007

I liked the way Ramachandra Guha has chronicled the development of India right since independence. Its a beautiful narrative and the book is a very detailed account of India since independence. Ramchandra guha is a Nehruvian. He writes equally about Hinduism but as the book proceeds he continues more to give it a bashing like a secularist. The book is very long. Guha has done extensive research in order to write this book. The book is one of the most comprehensive one and traces a history and goes up to 2007.I must say its a must read for people interested in history. He does give his own pers

Not for UPSC. But definitely good read for today's youth on the turmoil called Independent India.

As the author himself notes, India is an experiment in democracy. That so since nobody has embarked on such an notion of a nation without a common feeling of nation-state like Europe with so many diversities. But yet we are still together and united. The turmoils and challenges after independence has been described in great detail and it is a wonderful read.

But caution to those, who suggest this book to cover the topic of " Post-Independence consolidation of India" for the UPSC exam. This book is not aimed at such an analysis, though the broad contours of the consolidation can be understood

Best book about India's modern history

India After Gandhi: The History of the World's Largest Democracy is one of the best non-fiction books I have ever read. As the name suggests, this book deals with Indian history after 1947 and history assumes the form a of a story in this book. It is not everyday that you want a voluminous history book to never end. I wonder why Indian history post independence is not taught in schools. In my opinion, this book is a must read for anyone wishing to know about India's modern and contemporary history.


What I loved:

1. Wide array of topics: The book gives an account of almost all watershed even

India as we don't know it!

Read this book for many reasons:

1. To know how diverse we are!
2. To comprehend the fact that some things which are taken for granted by relatively younger generation is actually not so straight forward.
3. To appreciate the efforts that have gone into making India what it is today.
4. To understand the context of a lot of political events since Independence.

A must read if you remotely like to think before making sweeping statements about politics. This book force you to think and that is its redemption!

Very poor paper quality.. seems like a pirated one..!! :(

As always, Flipkart is amazing with delivery of the books with delivering India After Gandhi at my Office in less thatn 24 hours of placing the order..
But to my surprise, the paper quality of the Paperback book is so poor that I am forced to think that it is as bad as pirated books...
5 stars to delivery and Zero for book paper quality... :(

Finally authentic history writing has arrived in India

Since ages, India has been quite bad in recording her history. Most of our ancient history, as we read in books, is not authentic, because it's not based on any recorded history. It's mainly based on fragments from scriptures or other religious books, whose historicity and authenticity can't be vouched for. A good example is the Mahabharata, which is believed to be written by Ganesha, as narrated by Vyasa. No one knows correctly who the original author was or how this was written where as there's not much ambiguity about the authorship of Homer. The same is true for modern or medieval history.

A good reading

If you are interested about knowing and reading about Indian History after Independence or say Mahatama Gandhi than you must read the book.
A lot research and personnel interviews and experiences has been put forward by the writer in such a way that you would like to go through the whole books as soon as possible.
At some places you will be feeling yourself leaving with the events.
I think a must for the History part of your study.

Quite a good insight into India after Independence....

This is my first non-fiction. I bought it because I got bored with fiction and wanted to shift to Non-fiction. As it turned out this book was a good choice for starting a non-fiction. The author gave quite a good insights into the India after Independence. It was like reading a story. Because of its continuity and the nature of the issues addressed by the author it is an interesting book to anyone who is curious about the recent past of India. Although it took quite an effort to complete the book (its quite a thick book), it was worth it. I can't comment about how authoritative the book is but

Insightful and a page turner!

This book is very well written in the true GUHA style. Previous to this book i had one more of his book and found the lucid language of the book almost addictive...
This book starts from the time India got independence and i was amazed to read the amount of planning which had gone into every aspect of making India a democratic nation in spite of the Worlds doubts whether democracy would be successful in our nation or not...
The respect which i had for leaders like Patel and Ambedkar has grown manifold after reading this book... Patel was instrumental in getting all the princely states under th
