    Detailed account of india between 1950-2007

    I liked the way Ramachandra Guha has chronicled the development of India right since independence. Its a beautiful narrative and the book is a very detailed account of India since independence. Ramchandra guha is a Nehruvian. He writes equally about Hinduism but as the book proceeds he continues more to give it a bashing like a secularist. The book is very long. Guha has done extensive research in order to write this book. The book is one of the most comprehensive one and traces a history and...

    Best book about India's modern history

    India After Gandhi: The History of the World's Largest Democracy is one of the best non-fiction books I have ever read. As the name suggests, this book deals with Indian history after 1947 and history assumes the form a of a story in this book. It is not everyday that you want a voluminous history book to never end. I wonder why Indian history post independence is not taught in schools. In my opinion, this book is a must read for anyone wishing to know about India's modern and contemporary hi...

    Not for UPSC. But definitely good read for today's youth on the turmoil called Independent India.

    As the author himself notes, India is an experiment in democracy. That so since nobody has embarked on such an notion of a nation without a common feeling of nation-state like Europe with so many diversities. But yet we are still together and united. The turmoils and challenges after independence has been described in great detail and it is a wonderful read.

    But caution to those, who suggest this book to cover the topic of " Post-Independence consolidation of India" for the UPSC exam. This ...

    India as we don't know it!

    Read this book for many reasons:

    1. To know how diverse we are!
    2. To comprehend the fact that some things which are taken for granted by relatively younger generation is actually not so straight forward.
    3. To appreciate the efforts that have gone into making India what it is today.
    4. To understand the context of a lot of political events since Independence.

    A must read if you remotely like to think before making sweeping statements about politics. This book force you to think and that is...

    Finally authentic history writing has arrived in India

    Since ages, India has been quite bad in recording her history. Most of our ancient history, as we read in books, is not authentic, because it's not based on any recorded history. It's mainly based on fragments from scriptures or other religious books, whose historicity and authenticity can't be vouched for. A good example is the Mahabharata, which is believed to be written by Ganesha, as narrated by Vyasa. No one knows correctly who the original author was or how this was written where as the...

    Very poor paper quality.. seems like a pirated one..!! :(

    As always, Flipkart is amazing with delivery of the books with delivering India After Gandhi at my Office in less thatn 24 hours of placing the order..
    But to my surprise, the paper quality of the Paperback book is so poor that I am forced to think that it is as bad as pirated books...
    5 stars to delivery and Zero for book paper quality... :(

    A good reading

    If you are interested about knowing and reading about Indian History after Independence or say Mahatama Gandhi than you must read the book.
    A lot research and personnel interviews and experiences has been put forward by the writer in such a way that you would like to go through the whole books as soon as possible.
    At some places you will be feeling yourself leaving with the events.
    I think a must for the History part of your study.

    Quite a good insight into India after Independence....

    This is my first non-fiction. I bought it because I got bored with fiction and wanted to shift to Non-fiction. As it turned out this book was a good choice for starting a non-fiction. The author gave quite a good insights into the India after Independence. It was like reading a story. Because of its continuity and the nature of the issues addressed by the author it is an interesting book to anyone who is curious about the recent past of India. Although it took quite an effort to complete the ...
