    Description
    Mapping India presents an overview of important maps that eloquently reflect the changing social and political fortunes of India. These maps speak of the commercial interests and wars that led to the colonization of India, and show territories the size of countries that were conquered, ceded or controlled through treaties. They also record changed courses of rivers, routes taken by armies, people living in communities in new cities, places where famines occurred, how the highest peak was discovered and named, when native royalty gathered to pay respect to the British Emperor, and the destination to which Mahatma Gandhi marched with his supporters for the salt satyagraha. From the earliest chronicles of India to its post-Independence strides, Mapping India is the story of India recounted through its maps.

    Beautiful

    I've always found reading history very tiresome. Even in school I had the same opinion. So when I picked up this book at the local library, I did it more out of lack of alternatives rather than any particular interest. That changed very soon however, as I found myself stooping over its pages, awed by their meticulous detailing. This is a great way of understanding history. Maps are so easy to read and understand. Definitely better than some boring prose accounting historical events in a sombr...

    Eerie

    It was really strange for me, the experience of reading this book. I had always loved history in school and was good at it too. I'd read the history of the Indian subcontinent zealously and thought I knew a fair bit on the matter. But this book seemed to present that story in such a way that it all seemed new. History is mostly read, taught and understood through the evaluation of a subjective narrative of historical events. Maps on the other hand provide an objetive view of these events and ...

    Informative

    I was intrigued by the title of the book when i came across the the book in a bookstore. When observed through the historical and geographical lens of the nation, the book provides an account of all the important events during the establishment of the nation. The writer has wrestled to come to terms with the complexity that was involved in the formation of the nation, and how the different political states came into existence. A unique book that enables an insight into the nation's history.A...

    Great

    This book is one helluva ride….we all have some rough idea of the history of our country and surrounding regions and this book tells that same story….but in such a unique way that you’d almost feel as if you haven’t read this story. But you have….in the history books in school…..Imagine having a satellite view of all the events that happened in the Indian Subcontinent in the past 500 years. This book brings together…it seems….all the maps that have ever been made of the Indian subcontinent an...
