Columnist, historian, and die-hard cricket fan Ramachandra Guha has emerged as the most prominent chronicler of India's past and of its present. His acclaimed history of India from 1948 onward, India After Gandhi: The History of the World's Largest Democracy, is seen as the most unbiased account of India's checkered past. Now, after agreeing in March to a seven-book contract with Penguin that includes a two-volume biography of Mahatma Gandhi, Bangalore based Guha is just getting started.
