Negligence or incompetence?
21 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It takes immaculate skill to make a documentary about the Indian civilization without even once mentioning some of the greatest names that ever walked on this part of the world. Steering the story of India completely clear of the likes of Guru Gobind Singh, Maharana Pratap, Shivaji Marhatta, Maharaja Ranjit Singh, Tipu Sultan, Bhagat Singh and Subhash Chandra Bose, as if they never existed on the face of earth, takes a lot of creativity and improvisation. My compliments to Michael wood and his team for their profoundly negligent research and erudite incompetence that distorts and twists the story of India like never before. In no other version of India's story will you find the East India company, Aurangzeb and Jahangir as contenders for the most benevolent regime that Indians witnessed.
