A Journey through India's Past

Summary of the Book


The book presents the history of our great nation from the earliest times to the 7th century AD when the last of the Hindu emperors, Harshavardhana, ruled over a major part of India. The author has presented the chequered history in a brief manner, and with meticulous regard to authenticity of facts. He has deftly touched upon differing views on controversial matters pinpointing the most likely scenario in an objective manner.


The book meets the long-felt need of a nationalist, yet independent, appraisal of our past in a concise manner. It avoids the preconceived notions of foreign historians and their blind followers, at the same time without attempting undue glorification of the past.

The book is certainly a laudable attempt to bring our glorious heritage alive!
