Price : Rs 400
Praise for the book :
“A wonderfully readable collection of essays about the Maratha era. The collection is an important antidote to the mainstream narrative that the British conquered India from the Mughals; a story-line that was deliberately created in the colonial era to suggest that India was always an enslaved country. Aneesh has deftly torn down this biased history to present a vivid picture of dogged resistance against waves of foreign colonizers.”
– Renowned author Sanjeev Sanyal
“Painstakingly meticulous research and eminently lucid narration are hallmarks of Aneesh’s writing. He is doing yeoman service, by filling some of the abysmal gaps in our knowledge about our own rich history”
