The Saga of Indian Science Since Independence: In a Nutshell by Pushpa Mittra Bhargava and Chandana Chakrabarti; Manohar Books, Delhi, 2003;
ASHOK PARTHASARATHI The book is a survey of the scientific scene including policy organisational and aspects relating to science from the period up to 1800 to the present day. However, the bulk of the book is on the period since independence, with the period up to 1947 essentially in the nature of a backdrop. The authors deal with the agencies and organisations for scientific research in considerable detail with their comments; other sections look at with science academies, professional scientific societies, scientific journals and non-governmental organisations involved in science and technology, significant successes and failures, reasons for failures and the future outlook.
