The year 1947 was one of change. After almost 200 years of British rule, India became a united political entity. Only one question rang loud: What type of nation would the new India be?
This book traces the country's whirlwind journey, giving us a look at the last seventy years. Against a political backdrop, it provides glimpses of India's vast and rich culture, its many languages and remarkable diversity, its eminent personalities and notable achievements in all spheres. Featuring bite-sized information, fun facts, charming illustrations and detailed maps, this special book sums up the logs of India's independence in a fitting way.
