THAROOR'S INDIA FROM MIDNIGHT TO THE MILLENNIUM AND BEYOND: A CRITICAL ANALYSIS OF PRE AND POST INDEPENDENT INDIA

Mr. Bhupesh O. Gupta

Abstract :

The purpose of the present paper is to study the comprehensive analysis Tharoor did in his book of all walks of Indian life, post-1947. It is a critical evaluation of the country’s first fifty years of Independence. Very skilfully, Tharoor examined some of the greatest challenges India has faced over the past five decades as well as what lies ahead for the nation. In the chapters devoted to such diverse topics as caste, Indian democracy, the troubled legacy of Indira Gandhi, partition of India and Pakistan, sectarian violence, corruption, the author tries to define what makes India one country. He writes of these problems with a sense of optimism about the future. With a lucid and lively style he discusses India’s transition from a socialist economy to a free market and expresses satisfaction at the Indian leadership’s realization that economic interdependence is not incompatible with political independence. Keeping in mind the limitation of time and space, the researcher would prefer to give overview of all chapters rather than a detailed discussion.
