    EBOOK / PDF [Makers of Modern India] To make the Indian experience central to global debates is one aim of this book Another and perhaps greater aim is to make Indians aware of the richness and relevance of their modern political tradition After such bold claims I was disappointed to find that the book is in fact an anthology of Indian political writing I strongly feel a commentary would have been better to meet the professed aims of the book and

review Makers of Modern India

Makers of Modern India free read µ 6 Modern India is the world's largest democracy a sprawling polyglot nation containing one sixth of all humankind The existence of such a complex and distinctive democratic regime ualifies as one of the world's bona fide political miracles Further India's leading political thinkers have often served as its most influential political actor. Historian author and columnist Ramchandra Guha s recently published book Makers of Modern India is a sincere effort at profiling some of India s most prolific thinkers and doers whose ideas have had a defining influence in the shaping of our republic The book through speeches articles and essays by these great personalities tracks Indian s political social and cultural history over the last two centuries giving the reader a comprehensive idea of how the country has come to evolve In a detailed introduction Guha talks about how political activism has mostly gone hand in hand with theoretical reflection in our country and most of its greatest thinkers have all been in the thick of political action This is of course not uniue to India But one of the reasons that makes the compilation of such a book a worthwhile exercise is because many of those ideas remain relevant to present day India says GuhaAmong the 19 individuals chosen by the author there are the obvious names of course But on first glance there are several others who seem to be missing from the list In the introduction the author explains his choices clearly Two iconic leaders of Indian national struggle Vallabhhai Patel and Subhash Chandra Bose are not included and Guha says this was owning to the paucity of original ideas contained in their published works and because both were out and out doers The others missing are either because their influenced has passed with age or because their ideas didn t extend far beyond a certain class The Indian Marxist finds no representation and Guha explains why their work has been derivative and no novel contributions have been made to the ideas of Mao and LeninThe rest is at

The book Makers of Modern India by Ramachandra Guha gives you first row seat of the India in making through the thoughts and ideologies of such varied personalities Irrespective of the fact whether they are remembered today or not it can t be denied that they contributed most of the bricks that laid the foundation of our nation India which still remains the greatest experiment in democracy everThe book has a slow start and I was only left wondering why did I picked it But it gradually gathers pace and towards the last is just unputdownable Some of the readers may disagree with the author s chosen selection of the personalities included in the book but then author does gives a satisfying explanation in the first few pages for he has chiefly included those whose voice or ink produced reflections that are relevant even todayThe book introduces to range of myriad figures which includesRaja Rammohan Roy Sir Syed Ahmad Khan Jyotirao Phule Tarabai Shinde Gopal Krishna Gokhale Bal Gangadhar Tilak Mahatma Gandhi Rabindranath Tagore BR Ambedkar Mohammed Ali Jinnah EV Ramaswami Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru MS Golwalkar C Rajagopalachari Rammanohar Lohia Jayaprakash Narayan Verrier Elwin and Hamid Dalwai Out of these I was really impressed with C RajagopalachariRajaji of whom I regret to have read so littleThe thing I liked most about the book is that it focuses on the thoughts of these thinkers instead of their lives themselves in their own voice By this way writer and historian Mr Guha achieves his purpose of highlighting India s experiment and making it central to various global debates Kudos to him for such a brave attempt but a lot lefts to be desired specially the focus on individual thinking over the collective oneI recommend it to anyone who is curious about our nation and it s radical architects The book may disappoint for in the end one may feel that so little has been included but then may be there lies its strength for it will left you hungry and yearning for

Makers of Modern India free read µ 6 Lt the first major anthology of Indian social and political thought Makers of Modern India collects the work of nineteen of India's foremost generators of political sentiment from those whose names command instant global recognition to pioneering subaltern and feminist thinkers whose works have until now remained obscure and inaccessibl. I have long believed India to be the most interesting country in the world This is the impartial judgement of a historian not the partisan claim of a citizen India may also be the most exasperating and the most hierarchical and the most degrading country in the world But whatever ualifier or adjective one uses or prefers it remains the most interesting too truer words couldn t have been saidI rather liked the fact that it was an anthology of works by the makers of modern India I had been wanting to read a short compilation like this one for uite some time sure I wish there were a few other additions and from other fields too but the ones that are included are most definitely readworthy not that I agree with all of the ideas expressed but the writings and speeches tell you why these people are revered or criticised or idolised so much plus the prologue and intros are exactly what you might expect of Guha brilliant AND I am ashamed to say I hadn t heard of people like Verrier Elwin and Tarabai Shinde don t agree with all that she said still she uestioned stuff back in the 19th century So mighty good that I got to read this book
