The story of the forging of India, the world’s largest democracy, is a rich and
inspiring one. This volume, a sequel to the India’s Struggle for
Independence, analyses the challenges India has faced and the successes it
has achieved in the light of its colonial legacy and century-long struggle for
freedom. It covers the framing of the Constitution and the evolution of the
Nehruvian political and economic agenda and basics of foreign policy; the
consolidation of the nation and contentious issues like party politics in the
Centre and the states, the Punjab problem and anti-caste politics and
untouchability. These, along with objective assessments of Jawaharlal Nehru,
Indira Gandhi, Jayaprakash Narayan, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Rajiv Gandhi,
Vishwanath Pratap Singh, Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Manmohan Singh,
constitute a remarkable overview of a nation on the move.
