    Please do tell. It will be a big advantage. Thanks.
    One day, perhaps, love may die of disuse, left to rust in wind and weather.
  • IMO this book is a good read for leisure, but from the exam point of view, Pradhanmantri tv series and pol science ncert should be sufficient
  • I have read this book from cover to cover. Not much useful from exam point of view. Full of anecdotes. Bipan chandra is quite relevant from exam point of view but blatantly biased.

  • I too third :p the above mentioned view...it's a leisure read but from examination point of view not very useful.
    Why to be a "dahi bhalla" when you can become fried split black gram dumpling smothered with sweetened yoghurt, tamarind and mint sauce.
  • bhaiyo what is this pradhanmantri series??
    Down-yes Out-No

    कोशिश करने वालों की कभी हार नहीं होती।
  • Yes..it shud be taken at leisure only..also becoz from past 2 years nothing coming from post indep directly..

    But the significance of this book lies in giving u a real picture of wat happened..Nd then u cN write on ur own with compassion..

    Pradhanmanti series is fixed number of episode or some ongoing serial? @ravi_newbie ?

    Chap names -
    Valley bloody
    Redrawing map
    Conquest
    Securing
    Exp of defeat
    Peace of
    Rights
    Riots - babri issue

    These chap names r not advised for exam pov..but understand the gravity of situation..dillemmas..etc..read only in leisure..
  • @Hriti it has 26 episodes. It is a good watch, but some episodes have political drama too!

    is pradanmantri a tv serial or documentary available in the market ? Available in English version as well ?

    Btw not a good idea to go with guha at this point of time. Better refer post independence chapter of bandopadyay new edition, concised into a single chapter at the end covering all significant events post 1947. Hardly 1 or 2 questions you could expect from this part of d history.

  • @kummys It is a tv series in Hindi by ABP news, available on YouTube. English subtitles may be available.

    It is a TV Series by ABV News or something. If you are able to cover it, you will have covered Post Independence Topics like a Pro :-)

    This would be a good way to prepare the topic in a more interesting Manner. You can get it on Youtube!

  • anyone has collected quotable quotes or fodder material helpful in essay from this book
  • Btw, Pradhanmantri series is wonderful but not sufficient sirs and mams...it mostly narrates the political events and barely goes in to other fields of national importance. You will have an outline of the all the political events occurring but events related to economy, foreign policy, society have to be prepared separately.

    The only word that I remember now is neo-malthusianism with respect to emergency and forced sterilizations by sanjay gandhi and co.
