India Since Independence (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 347

An insightful narration on how the world’s largest democracy, India, was forged, India Since Independence is the sequel to India's Struggle for Independence and was first published in 2008.

Summary Of The Book

India Since Independence gives a succinct analysis of the various obstacles and challenges India had to face and overcome in her past, and her proudest and most successful moments in the century until independence.

The book narrates how the Constitution was drafted, and the development of economic and political agenda heavily influenced by Nehru. It also provides an insight into the fundamentals of foreign policies and an in-depth analysis of the different reforms in the Indian economy since 1991. The author scrutinizes various aspects like the problems in Punjab, the predominant practices of untouchability, and party politics in the Centre and states.

In addition to providing information on the decline of the National Democratic Alliance in 2004, and the resultant rise of United Progressive Alliance's power, it also discusses the deal that unravelled political consensuses, the Indo-US Nuclear Deal.

The book includes chapters like The Initial Years, The Colonial Legacy, Foreign Policy: The Nehru Era, The Rajiv Years, Agriculture Growth and the Green Revolution. The book has 41 chapters in total.

This edition provides an updated and revised overview of the Indian economy, and with a consolidation of objective assessments by public figures like Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Indira Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, this new edition includes an overview of the Indian economy in the new millennium.

A book from Bipan Chandra! What you expect from a book from BIPAN ji is crystal clear information and erudite observation for arriving at appropriate conclusions, and I must say, that this book is marginally better compared to many books on the same subject, it is wondering how an author from JNU co… (View complete review)

informative but biased

The book certainly is not critical of the leftist forces and leaves the readers ignorant of the rightist wing that too had an undeniable impact in the making of modern India. There are few authors in India like Guha who are equally critical to the both Congress and BJP . The contributions of Golwalkar and Shyama Prasad Mookherjee in providing an alternative for the Congess has been neglected. None the less the book is a journey and account of the struggle and accomplishments of India since its making.

Good if you are preparing for UPSC but useless if you want an impartial view.

I,being a UPSC aspirant was recommended this book.very quickly i would write the review pointwise.


1.good insight into the govt. policies and will help in writing pro-govt. type of answers.
2.a strict NO if you want a neutral view of the happenings.( talks almost nothing abt the NDA Govt's achievements and brings up useless things to demean the nda govt. in kargil war and pokhran tests and other things )----reports about 1984 riots in half page and godhra riots in 4 pages.Also it defends lackadaisical action of police in 1984 anti-sikh riots by citing that police had been busy in making the

crap!

its a shit book which has a biased left to centre view of everything.
it has not understood the rss, the communist party, the jp movement or lal bahadhur shastri.
india after gandhi by ram chandra guha is far better factually, philosophically and ideologically

Biased Writing

Though this book though sometimes gives a feel good factor about how everything went well in india.. but eventually readers are bound to feel that it is like a tribute to congress and gandhi family .. the whole agenda of books is to project anyone associated with congress as heroes. And people associated with BJP and RSS as communalists.

For instance of all the examples : in the starting of book Authors mention democraticaly chosen Govt of Kalyan singh as a rag tag coalition of criminals.
Godhra has been made prime example of communalism . As if they are judges giving verdict in courts.

Informative for the Ignorant but left-inclined.

I liked this book very much as it is very informative for people like me who hasn't got an in-depth idea of India's modern history but would like to have one. Though this book is a good read to gain knowledge, I found that the writers are biased towards left-leaning centrism. They do not have a single good word for the rightist forces who also had a major contribution towards India's development. As a historian, one ought to have unbiased opinions. And also, I felt no matter how bad a Congress leader might have been, which they even mentioned, in the end they projected them to be the real hero

SUCCINCT IN TOTAL BUT LACKS IN ESSENTIAL

Good book to read who had great knowledge, for others one should be careful in reading it is a culmination of opinions not facts, Read it like an editorial in news paper. In my opinion History become more analytical now It is no more same as our Old scholars( authors) thinks, authors missed lot of points in this book and included which was irrelevant now. For more clarity opinions are fact based analysis and thoughts of a person, here person always environment ( Place(India,State,Didtrict..etc),Religion,Caste,economic classes,age groups etc) and Heredity(origin of his body physiology and psych

very basied and very poor book; dont waste your money:

this is what money can buy fame; for if you ask a writer to project you and your family and your party in this case congress and Nehru family. the write has done what we call intellectual prosti****n. who ever pay: get what he/she want. some day I will ask bipin candra to write about me or will I if have have consciousness?

There is no objectivity and balanced view no critical analysis.Its congress calisha like hanuman calisha more you read it more hanuman become stronger.

dont buy it for exam.
instead buy ramchandra guha india after gandhi or any other book

Must read atleast once

The ideas that shaped our present political system are emereged from our past political thinkers and leaders who desigened the frame in which we are flourishing today. This book clearly mention the views and stands of post independent thinkers and leaders. Clearly mention the stand of Congress towards secular state, hindu and muslim ideologies, one can say that this book is little anti-RSS and pro congress in character, sometimes you can find that author is trying to defend the congress national and foreign policies, but actually the account of Bipin Chandra gives you detailed facts and figure

Must read book for every congress party activist..please don't buy any other people

I am giving 1/5 credit only for the Knowledge not for the content in the book...Author tried very hard to project Every Congress person as National Hero and represent all others as communists....Must read book for accloders of Gandhian Family.......please don't buy and don't waste your money and time..
