    India after Gandhi: The History of the World’s Largest Democracy, written by Ramachandra Guha, is a compelling account of how India has been growing immensely as a nation despite its issues and diversity. The book especially talks about the contributions of great leaders in building the largest democracy in the world, which is still functioning as the best and the most interesting in the world.

    Summary of the Book

    Dr. Guha’s scholarly genius is proved yet again in this authoritative work. Although the country has gone through and is still facing caste, class, religion and caste issues among others, it is still making its progress as the most interesting and the largest democracy in the world. It has not yielded to autocratic rule, nor has it doomed due to heterogeneity and poverty, like many had predicted. The book, while talking about history, also brings out the biographies of some of the extraordinary leaders, including Gandhi, and Nehru. The book also describes the political lives of Sheikh Abdullah, M. G. Ramachandran, Angami Zapu Phizo, and Jayaprakash Narayan among others.
