History: A Brief History of Modern India
Written by Rajiv Ahir, this book covers all the important aspects of Indian history starting from the arrival of the British, to the establishment of colonial rule, to the early years post-independence. It is such a brilliant account of India’s past that it is even used as a reference for prominent examinations like the Indian Civil Service.
Historical fiction: The Immortals of Meluha (Shiva Trilogy)
This one has topped every bestseller list since its launch, and continue to do so. Authored by Amish Tripathi, it is the first book of the Shiva Trilogy. It tells us the story of Shiva, as a mere mortal who inhibited a land called Meluha, and not as Mahadev, the ‘God Of Gods’ as he is referred to today. Interestingly, its sequels ‘Secret of the Nagas’ and ‘Oath of the Vayuputras’ are also on the Historical Fiction best seller list.
Contemporary Fiction: The Alchemist
This Paulo Coelho brilliance is an obvious one in the list. It has been in the bestseller list for the longest time and is credited to have made a serious impact on readers around the world. It is the story of a shepherd boy, Santiago, travelling from Spain to the Egypt in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. Though it revolves around the theme of ‘finding one’s destiny’, it is more than just a self help book.
Politics: The Anarchy: The East India Company, Corporate Violence, and the Pillage of an Empire
The newly launched William Dalrymple book ‘The Anarchy’ already tops the list of bestseller books on Amazon. It tells the story of the arrival of East India Company to India, and narrates how one of the world’s most magnificent empires was reduced to a comparative nothingness after the plunder of a colonial power.
