    Description

    An insightful narration on how the world’s largest democracy, India, was forged, India Since Independence is the sequel to India's Struggle for Independence and was first published in 2008.

    Summary Of The Book

    India Since Independence gives a succinct analysis of the various obstacles and challenges India had to face and overcome in her past, and her proudest and most successful moments in the century until independence.

    The book narrates how the Constitution was drafted, and the development of economic and political agenda heavily influenced by Nehru. It also provides an insight into the fundamentals of foreign policies and an in-depth analysis of the different reforms in the Indian economy since 1991. The author scrutinizes various aspects like the problems in Punjab, the predominant practices of untouchability, and party politics in the Centre and states.

    In addition to providing information on the decline of the National Democratic Alliance in 2004, and the resultant rise of United Progressive Alliance's power, it also discusses the deal that unravelled political consensuses, the Indo-US Nuclear Deal.

    The book includes chapters like The Initial Years, The Colonial Legacy, Foreign Policy: The Nehru Era, The Rajiv Years, Agriculture Growth and the Green Revolution. The book has 41 chapters in total.

    This edition provides an updated and revised overview of the Indian economy, and with a consolidation of objective assessments by public figures like Atal Bihari Vajpayee, Indira Gandhi and Manmohan Singh, this new edition includes an overview of the Indian economy in the new millennium.
