Bharat: Gandhi Ke Baad Duniya Ke Vishaaltam Loktantra Ka Itihaas (Hindi) documents the history of India after it received independence from the British rule.
Summary Of The Book
Bharat: Gandhi Ke Baad Duniya Ke Vishaaltam Loktantra Ka Itihaas (Hindi) is a book that makes its mark starting from its title. Most history textbooks and reference texts end at the most important date in Indian history, 15 August 1947. In reality though, a large chunk of Indian history lies hidden in the era after independence. During this time, India and Indian democracy, survived vicious attacks and threats of division along the lines of religion, class, caste, and language. The republic of India has however remained strong and united. It’s this experience of our nation post-independence that fills the pages of this book.
Ramachandra Guha explains through this book the struggle, pain, and humiliation endured by the world’s largest democracy. He also writes about the large number of strikes, protests, and conflicts that haunted India for long. He, however, doesn’t stop at that. He also writes about the various Indian accomplishments that made the country proud during this period.
Considering the history of India, it’s certain that this nation would have had its fair share of extraordinary people. The readers will come across fresh insights and most likely view things in a different light when reading about these personalities. Guha then goes on to document the feelings and thoughts of the lesser-known people, such as the tribals, peasants, workers, and women, that make India what it is today.
Bharat: Gandhi Ke Baad Duniya Ke Vishaaltam Loktantra Ka Itihaas (Hindi) is extensively researched. Guha’s objectivity in studying and writing about India’s history is easily visible. The writing is elegant and the work is scholarly. The book is an easy read because Guha adopts a lucid style of narration.
