Boundless Information and insightThe book divides the growth of Indian economy into 3 eras: 1942- 65, 66-91 and 91- 2005. At the beginning of each chapter, the book explores the socioeconomic effect of the policies of each era on the life of the author. Thus an interesting narrative acts as a preamble to the insightful commentary on the policies enacted then and their implications. A person in the present generation would have heard a lot of isolated information about the years before without much understanding the reasons and their implications well. Hardly does anybody know why India prefers being a closed economy. It answe… (Expand)

Changed my view towards Top Business Houses of India...a must for MBA'sI am thankful to Mr. Gurucharan Das for such a lovely composition. Why i call composition because the book was less like a text and more of a music composition. Like the rhythm of any music raises and falls and captures you from every corner, like the tones takes you into your control and you happily surrender yourself to the surrounding created by the music and then when it ends, you feel a different world around you, exactly the same way the book takes us to the 1947 and before. It teaches us the every possible situation that resulted our nation to attain independence....independence from pr… (Expand)

Not what I wantedThe cover design was changed, edition was different. I had specially selected this blue cover. Adding to the irresponsibility, packaging was worst I had seen in flipkart experience. It was loosely packed in with no sign of flipkart name, as if it was shipped by a local vendor. Flipkart please keep track of how your petty partners could affect your brand image.

An awesome book.I read this book when I was trying to learn the fundamentals of Indian Economy and boy I must say that I got really lucky. The author has explained Indian economy in such a way that I can bet on this book to be the best book for any beginner and even seasoned economist can also learn a lot from it. So if you wondering what is right or wrong with our economy, just go for this book and be assured that you will not regret even a single second spent on this book. Highly Recommended.

A beautiful analysis of contemporary India and it's economics.This book takes one on a journey from the time of Independence to the present day India. The book is about Indian society and the successive government's economic policies. The book discusses the Nehruvian sociology alongside capitalism. Though all this sounds much to do with hard jargon of economics, yet the book will find great admirers among the simplest (non-economic background) of readers who want to understand what went wrong with India after Independence, a country which has a history of 5000 years and has seen some great teachers like Chanakya. The book is a great learning of our past … (Expand)
