A list of esential books?
#1
Similar to the podcast recommendations could Nirmukta compile an essential reading list? I became aware of several works from browsing the internet over the past few months. A centralized compilation by fellow humanists would be more helpful. The books,I think,should mainly be about Indian history,Hinduism,Philosophy. But the mods are free to change this:

My list:
India after Gandhi,Makers of Modern India by R. Guha
All works of Ambedkar,MK Gandhi
Discovery of India by Nehru
Indian Ideology by Perry Anderson

Something about the Vedas,BG,Upanishads?

I believe the 'books' forum of Freethought Arts ( Social Action) is a great place to start.
