This book proves why casual readers need historians like Ramachandra Guha I gather Bipan Chandra is a highly respected name among those who prepare for civil services I was disappointed with History of Modern India because I was expecting opinions from an IAS preparation text book People find history boring in school because it deals merely in facts dates and names A study of history is incomplete unless we form opinions about it We talk about it discuss argue and even demolish mosues because of our interpretation of history A book that simply lays out the facts without the author giving his own touch is too academic for my taste In fact I think even academic study can be sexier It is the story in the history appeals to the casual reader I'm off to buy Guha's Makers of Modern India

I've always wondered why do we even need to read history books We can't change it we can't meet the people who were involved and doesn't matter how good an author is we never really feel the actual urge that the characters of the story must've had felt This book starts from decline of the era of Mughals that means basically from the era of Aurangzeb and has concluded on 15th August 1947 the day we got our independence But if I just said that history was not a worthwhile endeavor then why am I starting a story here Precisely because of this reason only as I stand corrected I've always heard my parents telling me that they in their graduation days have read this author and it was a treat I totally agree with them In 25 years this author has neither lost his charm nor he has got any competition In this particular book as i mentioned earlier he started with Aurangzeb but just try to soak in the depth of description that he has given From Aurangzeb he has mentioned every Mughal ruler who led to its demise which means Bahadur Shah Zafar I Jahandar Shah Farukh Siyaar Muhammad Shah Shah Alam II Akbar II Bahadur Shah Zafar II and this is just the list of Mughal Emperors Now while the disintegration of Mughal empire was going on various kingdoms surfaced during this time which includes Hyderabad Mysore Kerala Maratha Rajput Sikhs etcBritish Empire has enjoyed special attention in the whole book though From the entry of British East India Company in 1608 in India The journey continues as they make their first major move regarding the acuisition of political power in India when they defeated Siraj ud Daulah in connivance with Mir Jafar in battle of Plassey in 1757 and from there on the Britishers never looked behind as they came to this realization that in order to further their economic causes in India it's easier to indirectly acuire the political leadership and keep making exceptions for the EIC Dastak documents are one such example in which the Britishers had secured a farman from the Mughal empire where they didn't have to pay taxes for the entry or exit of their goods in Bengal But the real twist of nationalism and communal ism came into the picture around 1900 1940 when all the important leaders from Raja Rammohan Roy to Jawahar Lal Nehru Mahatma Gandhi and many others decided that enough is enough and nothing would be satisfactory to us apart from Poorna SwarajLahore session of Congress in 1929I won't rob you off the thrill and seuential bliss that this book is and though it is mostly favored and read by people who are preparing for upsc i feel that every Indian should read this book as this one is the best collection of historical events presented in an impartial manner that I have come across as of now


History of Modern IndiaOry such as the establishment of the British East India Company which led to a tightened grip of the British over India Chandra also explains that the major reason behind the colonial rule was to exploit India by means of investment and trade The chapters in this book are arranged in chronological order starting from the British Rule to the independence of the country This piece of literature provides its readers with loads of information on the nationalist movement throwing light on the contributions made by several different individuals This book is a must have for history students as well as for those who want to gain insight into the history of modern Ind. Greatly disappointed with this book It vilifies the British badly and I have never read such an anti British book ever Did not think Bipin Chandra would ever present history in such a manner He seems very biased about certain social reformers and leaders I fail to understand how could this book be on the NCERT syllabus Not worth Civil Services prep for sure
