    Condensed version of India After Gandhi

    The book covers up the ground that might not have been covered in India after Gandhi. This is not say that two books could be compared or India after Gandhi was not exhaustive but certain areas where one would have been more interested in were there.

    The book takes us inside the different political parties and some movements which have taken place in India post independence. The commentary is very strong and apolitical and since it is a collection of essays, in depth examination of particul...

    Expected a better product

    You get to know about Hindu terrorism and how it is more dangerous than any other form of terrorism. It was not expected of a historian of such prestige to look at a whole community from one glass. He perceives the movement led by Anna Hazare as an opportunist stunt played by a patriarch brahman. It is really disgusting to read his opinions on Dayanand Saraswati when he terms him as a mere proselytizer. This man definitely has something against Hinduism. I don't know why his attacks on Congr...

    short and insightful

    I have been following books by Ramchandra Guha for some time - beginning with the classic " India after Gandhi". This book is also very well written - especially essays like " A short history of Congress Chamchagiri". The authors astute observations find resonance with your own feelings. The chapter devoted to the Nehru Memorial Library is also an eye-opener. Though the author is known more for being a historian,I am looking forward to more books by him on contemporary topics.

    Immensely readable. Especially for pieces on NMML and EPW.

    Some might criticize him for Belle-Lettrism, some for giving way too much importance to individuals rather than the fluid streams of history. And some of that might be true as well. Still, Ramchandra Guha's books are very readable and give a unique sense of pleasure. A strongly worded liberal, always ready to voice opinion against intolerance and fascist tendencies of any kind, he does make history much more accessible to the lay person. Though this book is more a collection of memoirs than a...
