    A quick walk into the minds of great thinkers!!

    Well the title is mis-leading with many "makers" which Mr Guha mentioned in the book didn't have significant impact on the society.It wold be better titled with "Thinkers of modern India"
    However,the book is a marvellous compilation of some of the greatest thinkers ranging from 18th century to present day.One will be amazed while sneaking into the minds of 18th century thinkers and writers with their clarity of thoughts and broad view.

    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...
