    Misleading title

    As per author 'Makers of Modern India' have
    - original thinking
    - wealth of literature(books/articles/speeches)

    This leaves out people who
    1. Made modern india, but didn't write literature(Sardar Patel)
    2. Wrote literatures but author didn't find it to be original (Leftists, Naxals).

    It also includes people who happen to have written literature(with original thinking) even if they didn't have any impact on society(Tarabai Shinde & Hamid Dalawi)

    Overall armchair thinkers have been credite...
