Detailed account of india between 1950-2007I 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… (Expand)

Esp. recommended for the young!As a student, I remember how drab and detached histrory lessons were. Moreover, if one did not pursue history/political science in class XI and XII, one was deprived of any knowledge or insight into the happenings of this great nation post-Independence. To all those young people who, like me, have a thirst for knowing about the events, thoughts and ideas that have shaped modern India but feel that they have to grudgingly satisfy themselves with tid-bits of information in newspapers, Tv and internet, "India after Gandhi" is a book not to be missed.

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.

Best book about India's modern historyIndia 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.

India as we don't know it!Read this book for many reasons:

Finally authentic history writing has arrived in IndiaSince 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.… (Expand)

A marvellous launchpad for a political noviceI have no words to thank this wonderful book which has set me off on a learning spiral. I have been looking for a book like this to clear the basics in order to make sense of daily political news. This is a perfect book to give you a perfect launchpad of political history of independent india and will definitely make you an interesting reader to follow-up and understand ongoing political developments. I humbly request Mr.Guha to please write a continuation of this book to cover the political developments till 2010.
