5.0 out of 5 stars Glimpse of hope to disillusioned Indians, 24 Mar. 2014
By 
This review is from: India After Gandhi: The History of the World's Largest Democracy (Paperback)
'India after Gandhi' authored by one of the most accomplished historians, Dr. Guha, is nothing short of a masterpiece. It personally gave me immense hope and strengthened my faith in my country's democracy, at a time when I personally think it is going through an all time low; with a leadership crisis at the centre, steadily falling economic growth and sharp increase in incidents of brutality against women.
Detailed history of the nation from 1947 onwards, gives insight into some of the testing and challenging times faced by the country and its people which almost sometimes did bring the nation on the brink of disintegration but somehow we survived and the journey undoubtedly has been rough and patchy but also fulfilling. Dr. Guha is a fantastic story teller, he provides the most gripping account of wars and crises, of rise and fall of our political leaders, of highs and lows of our economy and democracy and upliftment and degradation of its people.
