FROM PLASSEY TO PARTITION BY SEKHAR BANDYOPADHYAY PDF

From what I understand the author added it for the second edition as people complained the book ended too abruptly at independence. Unfortunately, he did not manage to do justice to it. Half of the chapter just deals with the nehruvian era till and overall has a very rushed feeling. Otherwise the book is quite decent. Instead they were local led movements which, after they had reached some success, were led by the Congress. In short, instead of a top down history, the author attempts to look at the different cacophony of voices which were part of the fabric of Indian history, while at the same time giving a very good broad outline of its movement towards freedom.

Now that the British has left the subcontinent 70 years ago this period our times is considered post-colonial or Independent India. Bandyopadhyay, who teaches history at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, has covered, as the title suggests, the history of Indian history has generally been divided in three broad periods: Ancient — from the dawn of history to the coming of Islam; Medieval — Muslim rule up to the Mughal Empire and the Modern — the colonial rule under the British.

Bandyopadhyay, who teaches history at the Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, has covered, as the title suggests, the history of India from the coming of the British till they left.

Any reading of modern Indian history invariably leads to a feeling of profound sadness. A 5,year-old civilization — a country that is more an experiment in syncretism than a nation — finds itself broken in three parts as two major religious communities are led to believe that, after 1, years, they can no longer stay together as neighbours.

And at what price! How do Pakistanis look at partition of the country and independence? But clearly the bitterness persists — to the detriment of all of us. All of us — Indians, Pakistanis and Bangladeshis — must realize that mutual recrimination will not take us anywhere. In the new millennium we have far deadlier demons to fight and defeat — population explosion, climate change, ecological degradation, malevolent and deadly use of technology and weapons of mass destruction, income inequality, dwindling natural resources, water scarcity and what you have.

At least we should. A signal contribution to the study of modern Indian history.
