He is considered an authority on Modern Indian History and is one of its most popular scholars.

While there are conspicuous ideological biases here and there, mostly centre-left, the writers overall do a pretty decent job keeping their objectivity intact. The book is goodthe book is presenting our Freeeom through a novel type writing, that's why the main key points are not well arranged.
This is why it didn't seem fair to give it 5 stars.

And a very hard read for a rookie. This book contains oral and written narratives from different parts of the country, making this book historically rich and diverse.
The book also covers the rise of communism and socialism in the country and the effect of the Russian revolution of on the leftists. Maneesh Kumar Chaudhary Certified Buyer.
