Indian history, culture and philosophy right from Indus valley till 1946.A peek into the strategy of Indian National Congress during the freedom struggle.

If you haven't already read 'India After Gandhi' by R.Guha, this book is a perfect background setting for it. Nehru's understanding of India and her problems is just amazing.

The book kinda makes you wonder how things went so terribly wrong in the first 40 years of independent India despite such detailed and flawless vision, which still kinda remains unfulfilled. Reading this book made me blame Indira Gandhi more for the problems of India prior to 1991.
