Jallianwala Bagh, 1919, The Real Story
The Jallianwala Bagh massacre of 1919 not only shook the conscience of leaders like Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore, Motilal Nehru but it also left an indelible mark on the psyche of Indians.
In fact, the massacre which the British did at the Jallianwala Bagh is a blot on the history of the British Empire.
Although, Indian civilization believes in the creed of forgiveness. But, Indians needs to remember that, Forgive but don’t forget.

The life of Mahatma Gandhi by Louis Fischer
You can love Mahatma Gandhi, you can hate Gandhi but you can’t ignore Mohandas karamchand Gandhi, especially in India. The Father of the nation to the people of India. Although, people have different notions about Gandhiji but miniscule of people have tried to read about him.
The life of Mahatma Gandhi by Louis Fischer is one of the best biography books that you will find on him. That’s why I suggest anyone who is interested in reading about Gandhi to start with this book. Although, the font of this book is too small but the content is worth reading.

The Great Partition by Yasmin Khan
Although, there are several books available on the partition of India but the one which nearly covers all the aspects of partition is written by Yasmin Khan. I strongly recommend this book to all those who are eager who know the reasons and the circumstances which led to the partition of India.

An Autobiography by Jawaharlal Nehru
Jawaharlal Nehru was not only the first prime minister of independent India but he was also one of the most important founding fathers of India. He remained as the Prime Minister of India for almost 17 years, democratically. That’s a feat in itself. To understand the modern India we Indians need to read about the man who remained as the captain for almost two decades.

Half Lion, How P. V. Narasimha Rao Transformed India by Vinay Sitapati
Although, India gained its independence in August 1947 but that was political independence as such. But, in June 1991, India gained its economic independence when P. V. Narasimha Rao dismantled the infamous license-quota raj policies of the previous Governments and integrated India with the rest of the world.
Today, India is a $3 trillion dollars economy. This achievement wouldn’t been possible without the craftsmanship of Narasimha Rao.
