Discovery of india - Jawaharlal Nehru

Quite a fascinating and interesting read.

It covers the 'history' of india over the millenia, and the pages are effused with Nehru's own insight and a conversational style of writing. It covers a lot of ground, going over not just the political powers, but also over the nature of society, its various influences, religious, artistics, cultural.

Although the beginning tends to be a drag, it still a pretty rewarding book, if you stick with it.
