In this explosive book, best-selling author Shashi Tharoor reveals with acuity, impeccable research, and trademark wit, just how disastrous British rule was for India. Besides examining the many ways in which the colonizers exploited India, he demolishes the arguments of Western and Indian apologists for Empire on the supposed benefits of British rule.

Shashi Tharoor has collated the outline of most situations during the British rule in India. The facts provided in this audible is informative. However, the 1940's and beyond only revolve around few Leaders. A lot more should have been said or at least he could have acknowledged the roles and sacrifices made by Freedom fighters like Bose (who was one of the integral members of the freedom struggle and also Congress).
