Born against a background of privation and civil war, divided along lines of caste, class, language and religion, independent India emerged, somehow, as a united and democratic country. Ramachandra Guha?™s hugely acclaimed book tells the full story - the pain and the struggle, the humiliations and the glories - of the world?™s largest and least likely democracy. While India is sometimes the most exasperating country in the world, it is also the most interesting. Ramachandra Guha writes compellingly of the myriad protests and conflicts that have peppered the history of free India. Moving between history and biography, the story of modern India is peopled with extraordinary characters. Guha gives fresh insights on the lives and public careers of those longserving Prime Ministers, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi. But the book also writes with feeling and sensitivity about lesser known (though not necessarily less important) Indians - peasants, tribals, women, workers and musicians. Massively researched and elegantly written, India After Gandhi is a remarkable account of India?™s rebirth, and a work already hailed as a masterpiece of single volume history.

i have got this book within a week of placing the order. the packaging was good and compact. the book is excellent and lucid in explanation and even a layman,one who is not familiar with the modern dynamics of Indian history, can comprehend it easily. the writer has tried to present the facts and possible implications accurately rather than imposing his ideas upon the readers. a great joy to read !!!!!
