Must Read BOOK: Makers of Modern India edited by Ramchandra Guha




Those who are interested in the history of modern India should read this book.

http://www.makersofmodernindia.com/

Some famous quotes:

1.India did not exist before the arrival of the British and it was stitched up by the British for their convinience.

2.Nitish Kumar of Bihar should become the Prime Minister of India.

3.Rajiv Gandhi did not know Nehru(political heritage).

4.E.V.R.Periyar thoughts reformed the tamil brahminical movement BUT it is more relevant today for other religions.

5.Karnataka stopped developing after Ramakrishna Hegde was potrayed a future PM of India.

6.India has handled the Kashmir problem the wrong way both politically and constitutionally since 1947.

Based on the NDTV interview I watched a few minutes ago, this books looks like a good primer for many of us who are writing about India with a pigeon hole view.
