Now being read..
800 odd page tome that contains the history of India after the death of Mahatma Gandhi.
I believe that Ramachandra
n Guha, has done a great job researching and writing this book which brings out little known facts about what happen after we gained independence.
The events of the last 60 years or atleast a major part of it should now qualify as History, and not just the events before 1947 which is all that is taught in school. Phizo, Sriramulu, Mannath Padmanabhan, MGR; these stalwarts – the heroes of post independent India.
