      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      Sellers without Flipkart Assured may or may not add a delivery charge to your Order. This is subject to Seller discretion.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Indian History is an ideal read for those looking to gain deeper insight into the history of the nation, right from the ancient times, moving on to medieval and modern history.

    Summary Of The Book

    Indian History is an ideal study manual for students appearing for competitive or civil service examinations. It is systematically divided into three sections and every section features a chronological chart at the beginning. This chart shows the order and sequence of events, allowing students to take a quick glimpse of it.

    The first part of the book concentrates on ancient history. It talks about the Indus valley civilization and the Vedic society. The Mauryan era covers Chandragupta and Asoka and also focuses on the rise of Jainism and Buddhism in India. This section even covers the Guptas and their successors.

    The next section focuses on medieval history and covers topics like the Mughal empire, Shivaji’s rule and reign, and more. It covers the various dynasties that came to power in India, like the Cholas, Rajaputras, Lodis, and the Vijaynagar empire. With the Sultans' rule, an Indo-Persian culture flourished during this period.

    The final section of the book is dedicated to modern history. It deals with the rise of Gandhi, the formation of the Indian National Congress, and the struggle for independence. Readers also learn of the British impact on the Indian economy. The various civil and national movements that erupted out of national consciousness are depicted. India's conflict with China over border control has also explained.

    Indian History also contains model papers for students to practise and revise what they have learnt and test their knowledge. Certain maps of relevance are also featured in this book, to make identification of historical places easy. It even features a table that denotes the genealogy of famous historical personalities.

    best for beginners

    1. lucid format of writing ( info on a topic is all divided as subtopics which is good rather than reading everything as one )
    2.covers entire syllabus
    3.mcq's after each unit
    4. practice tests at last of book(13)
    5. flowcharts of kingdoms in the front part of the book
    6.provides all the info about a topic up to the required extent
    7.the only thing required is more maps at the same time there are only
    8.few tabulated representations of information
    book best (on others*)
    * as per my opin...

    needs improvement

    the book is very detailed and analytical for ancient India. Ok for medieval period. But the modern section require major revision, modification and most importantly addition. many areas are not adequately dealt with or are simply ignored. it seems the author may have become tired by the time he reached the modern section and just wanted to finish the book in a hurry!

    Good but not the best !

    Though the book provides a comprehensive overview of Indian history , the approach is more factual without an analytical background. Majumdar's An Advanced History of India is a better book in terms of in-depth analysis of events.

    Good book for systematic study

    The approach used in the book makes it very easy to get hold of important concepts. It would be better for beginners to start with Tata Mc Graw HIll General Studies book for gettingan initial idea before jumping into this one.

    Poor content but good stock of MCQs at the end of each chapter. But plz don't use this as your text book. There are much better books available in the market. U can use old NCERTS. Thanks to flipkart for its as usual swift delivery.
