A good read

A very lucidly written book on the history of India's Geography. It does not sound like a boring lecture that you were forced to attend on a subject that was not particularly engaging. The book is easy to read and has some very interesting information about the importance of Mapping in India and how… (View complete review)

Different Perspective

The content of this book brings a different perspective to Indian History, the way we have read or studied it.

Its a fantastic read for someone who is interested in knowing the landscape as it was in old days and how they influenced politics, culture, wars and people.

Read it in a week :)

I was intrigued by the title and ordered this "geography" book. Sanjeev has this knack of weaving huge amount of information into an interesting story. I read this book with in a week.
Most of the book in a single day. I wish he has written more about cholas though.

A Book Every Indian, Young and Old, Must Read

In a recent interview with Aung San Suu Kyi she was asked about 'India' and she replied - "I prefer to refer to it a a land, it is so much more romantic." The title of this book reflects that beautiful sentiment and its pages thrill and surprise you with little known facts about our land, the sub continent, withouts its modern political borders.

Did you know that the Aravalli's are part of Rodinia, which pre dates Pangea and Gondwanaland, one of the oldest, if not the oldest land mass in the world. And that it may have been as high as the Himalaya's hundreds of million years ago. That t

Excellent Read

This is an excellent book. For a history buff like me, this book is a treasure trove of information with an expanse that covers 5000 years. From Aravalis, Rodinia, the mythical Sarswati, Ghaggar, to Maurya empire to Mughals to present day urban planing - the expanse of the book is really what makes it a must have in any personal library.

One further advice - In the past few years the democratization of media that has taken place due to advent of social media has altered many a perspective on what we considered to be truth earlier. Similarly, this book sheds complete new light, and with histo

Awsome Book

Nice book it has some really mind boggling facts of pre independence and Indian History.
A must buy for people who have an interest in Indian History...

Some topics are really nice like the comparison of River Saraswati with Ganga, Mahabharat, Ramayan are they real or just a story created, rise & fall of great kingdoms like Maurayans, Mughals, trade history of India with rest of the world this book really digs deep into the facts and really makes you think......

Good book on Indian history and geography

Its a quick read and doesn't bore you.
The author has thrown light on the fact that through centuries India progressed through urbanization, whether it was Harrappa,Pataliputra or Kolkata.
It has got a different view on the Aryan-Dravidian race angle.
Laced with interesting facts about India should be made school textbook.

misleading title

The book received good reviews on flipkart.com. So, I ordered it.

Initially it is more like a book by Romila Thapar, I.e explained geology and then started real history. This technique is followed till the end of Harappan civilization. After that the economist in the author woke up and delivered opinions on historical develoments. The economic view of history is really interesting.

History was explained in a linear fashion till Mughals. From that point, he started on hopping. Author mentioned importance of lot of things in and around Delhi which are not famous tourist spots. Few anecdotes ,

A book that clears a lot of propaganda

A very nicely written book. I specially liked this book since it tried to uncover the layers of propaganda on our historical outlook brought about because of so many years of foreign domination.

The only area I found the book lacking is, I expected more maps and pictoral representations etc. Guess it could have raised the cost.

Overall a book every Indian should read and should encourage their children to read.

Kudos Sanjeev Sanyal.

Land of the seven rivers

A wonderful book and must read for all Indians. The author has really done a commendable work. This book is very informative and joins many dots in the history of India. Once you start reading this book it is difficult to stop. It touches upon all aspects including flora and fauna also. Importance of lion in the history is dealt in a very elaborate manner.

a great book.

this book provides us a new angle to look into in our history. historians in colonial time like max muller, vincent smith were not above doubt. sometimes they misinterpreted our ancient texts like vedas, and puranas by mistake or may be knowingly. because our ancient texts were older than the history of christianity. so, there came a controversy over validity of christianity. according to old testament bishop usher calculated that the gensis took place in around 4000 bc. but, in puranas, the idea of four eons (chaturjug) had smashed the idea of bishop usher. it threatens the foundation of chri

Very Good book for history, a must to read

Book is necessarily a history book. At first i thought it as a geography book but i found it useful in the way that it connects the two. Learning history through geographical land marks is really fantastic ans fascinating. Reading this book gives you a feeling as if the whole scene narrated in the book is actually being played in front of eye of the reader. How India actually changed geographically, culturally, habitually, sensually, everything is covered. It essentially tells how India has changed over the large span of time.
It covers topics like The great flood, arrival of aryans, Ramayana

A must read

This is a wonderful book and has uncovered a number of untouched aspects in India's geography and history. Best thing is Sanjeev does not seem to have any kind of baggage, a typical historian might have. He has analyzed the facts very objectively and all the assumptions have been made on a very sound logic. Also the book is easy to read and divided very judiciously in various sections and readers are less likely to get confused navigating through the book. Anecodotes are also intelligently interspersed. All in all a great book for anyone wanting to know more about some uncovered facts about ou
