Hence, would rate it as more appealing to older children or adults than to young children.
Through the book, one can appreciate the various forces at work during independence & partition. Like Hindu Maha Sabha, Muslim League, Revolutionary group, Backward Classes rights group, pitched against the man who believed in 'One Integrated Nation' as a conglomerate of diverse elements and in Ahimsa, nonharming. How through two 'smart moves' - one, of a 2nd round table conference with various representatives of India in the country of their oppressors having various agenda never meeting at any common point. & two, by announcing separate electorates for Muslims & 'Untouchables', how Britain divided India's commonmind into pieces that never really joined together as a massive united whole ever again. How it put Hindus against Muslims, low caste Hindus against caste Brahmins et al. Even today we see the ramifications of the same & these policies still poison our society from within...
Brings back the truth that they was really no 'India' before our great leaders who fought for her - it was separate countries rule by umpteen kings, some good, some bad, some worse than the worst. & reminds us, that when Babar attacked, no Indians were spared - whether they were Hindus or Muslims or others! Same when Portugal attacked or Britain did. Same when internally our kings fought each other whether it be Akbar or Tipu Sultan. Why we label each of them separately today & get bigotted assuming they attacked only a select/opposite group! Each had looting, expanding borders and/or conversion as aim of course but sufferers were an united whole of Indians or rather residents of what we call India today.
A must read for every Indian, especially in current scenario where the old divide & rule venom seems to torture in our collective veins, yet again.
