Format: Paperback
I'd say this book is good for someone who is in college. Needs the time and effort to read it as it is a long read (as well as intense at times). Nehru-ji impresses the reader with the breadth of his knowledge - both of India and the world. I wish at times he explained what those phrases in French meant ! He makes a compelling case of why the reader should be proud of India's culture and heritage. With ample examples, he brings that out very well. At times though, it feels repetitive to hear his arguments for how the British rule has spoiled the economy but he backs all those with facts. It is not jingoism when you express how superior the country is as long as the statements are scientific and fact-based. Talking of which, his penchant for scientific inquiry stuck me the most. I wish the countrymen (especially all politicians of his day) shared that.

Liked: his fact-based, scientific inquiry of India's history & his pride at being an India
Dislikes: some arguments repeated multiple times & the minor French references :)

Overall, worth reading.

I have received the book as per the delivery date specified by Amazon and they have promptly communicated the position through SMS and the packing is very good. The book is also very light weight and good and worth reading.
