For students of history, she advises, “For Ancient and Medieval Indian History, the good old NCERT seems to be reliable source. Its author is RS Sharma. Some chapters in the above even serve as a great source for Art and Culture section.
“For Modern Indian History, Spectrum’s Modern History and Bipin Chandra’s Indian Struggle for Independence are great.”
Among other interesting features are Sahibaans of Kashmir, Tina at 25 and My Inner Rumi.
