Recently I started reading this book: India after Gandhi. Almost all of the history books that currently exist conclude at the time when India gained its independence. The evolution of current India after that period is hardly recounted anywhere. The author of this book set out to fill this void and does an awesome job at it. For history buffs like me, this is a great read. Highly recommended.
I have gifted this book to two of my friends and they have both been delighted at reading it.
Its voluminous (but in no ways less exciting) to carry around and I wish that the publishers would release a Kindle version of it soon.
Till then, happy reading.
