Quick Overview

History as it has been conceived and written in modern times has generally limited itself to the narration of events and based its interpretations almost entirely on the rational and objective approach ignoring all other psychological and subjective factors. This predominance is so great that most modern historians and some political thinkers have concluded that objective necessities are by law of Nature the only really determining forces, all else is result or superficial accidents of these forces. Scientific history has been conceived as if must be a record and appreciation of the environmental motives of political action, of the play of economic forces and developments and the course of institutional evolution. Indian history in particular loses much of its true significance when looked at only from this external view point. This book is an attempt to look at Indian history not only from the external but also from the psychological and subjective angle. It attempts to portray the history and culture of India from the subjective and spiritual point of view. Starting from the Vedic and Upanishadic ages it traces the evolution of India to the building of empires; it is followed by a description of the invasions of Muslim and English and the psychological impact that they had on the people of India. This is followed by detailed description of the Freedom Movement with special emphasis of the psychological forces that were in play till the attainment of Independence in 1947. Finally it concludes with a vision of the future India.
