5.0 out of 5 stars An Eye Opener, 3 May 2009
This review is from: India After Gandhi: The History of the World's Largest Democracy (Paperback)
Growing up in the 70's in the political capital of India, a lot of questions about the Union of India remained unanswered. Most importantly how the idea of India was transformed into the union and what makes us tick as a nation given the diversity. This book is truly an eye opener and elements from ths book should be incorporated in the school history syllabi for the future generations to appreciate the journey we as a nation have travelled and to truly understand what we represent. Take my journey as an example: I went to a Catholic missionary boys school with all religions of the world represented in a class of 50 where religion as a subject only came up as part of curriculum. I felt prviliged to be exposed to this diversity resulting in an appreciation and tolerance which is sadly changing in todays India. I hope this book creates a discussion in what we as a nation truly stand for - great book and superb read.
