Sources for History

In this post you can find the list of sources that I have studied History from.

  • Culture Part
    • Karim sir’s notes (RC Reddy Study Circle)
    • Reading about architectures of different ages in Wikipedia by looking at pictures
    • GKToday material for Dances, Music and Paintings
  • Modern India
    • Karim sir’s notes (RC Reddy Study Circle)
    • Bipan Chandra (old NCERT and India’s Struggle for Independence)
      • I personally feel that India’s Struggle for Independence in an overkill. I have not read any other book to recommend, so I advice the aspirants to choose a smaller book based on other toppers’ recommendations.
    • Internet for topics that have come up in newspapers (Ex: Rani Gaidinliu)
  • Post Independence
    • Bipan Chandra – India Since Independence
    • Internet
  • World History
    • NCERTs
    • Mastering Modern World History by Norman Lowe (selectively)
    • Internet for topics like Nelson Mandela, Lee Kuan Yew etc.

  1. Could you please tell which all chapters of Norman lowe did you refer for the preparation of world history? Also, did you refer to the new ncerts or the old ncerts for world history?
