Super book on Indian history. Brings into focus a lot of people, whose stories often get missed while writing about India’s history.
Some of the interesting stories that I liked or were completely new to me are – Visveswaraya, Chidambaram Pillai, Birsa Munda, Krishnadevaraya, Basavanna, Malik Ambar, Panini, William Jones and Jamsetji Tata.
Names I felt that could have been given a miss – Mirabai, Nainsukh, Indira Gandhi, MF Hussain.
Overall, good book, and an interesting take on Indian history.
