Covering the story of a millennium in India's history, this book discusses India's advancement from a country which existed and fought on its own into a country on the global scale. Beginning with the global situation in the 800s, Satish Chandra describes the political map of the world at that timeline and then progresses to India and her city-states. Describing the Chola empire to the South, he progresses to showcase the difference between the scenarios by bringing in the North, where the Turks were ready to advance. He describes how the Delhi Sultanat was established and how it organized the entire north. It shifts back to the south and discusses the rise of the Vijayanagara Empire, and the advent of the Portuguese to the south. A majority of the book discusses the Mughals and the Afghans and how the Mughal Empire rose, and eventually fell, in India. This Hindi translation of the original beautifully captures the story of India between the 800s and the 1700s.
