    Excellent source to interpret contemporary India in light of historical events

    This book is an excellent assortment of essays on crucial social and cultural issues by Dr. Amritya Sen. The facts and rationale used to explain underlying topic is exemplary. Many essays are quite relevant in contemporary India and urges us to look for and different dimension of the issue at hand. I think the ways rationale was backed with multiple references from history dating back to 400 CE makes this book as an exceptional read. I feel delighted while skimming pages of this book.
