Read a Book
The History of India for Children (From the Mughals to the Present ) Volume 2 by Archana Garodia Gupta & Shruti Garodia (Age: 8+ years)
This book is all about how India’s history changed with the coming of the Mughals, followed by the British Raj. This book is full of interesting, historically significant incidences that one does not read of in school textbooks.

For example, did you know, Mahatma Gandhi took his goat Nirmala, with him everywhere he went an even shipped it to London, so he could have fresh goat milk! If you are a trivia or history buff, read this book. Published by Hachette India and available on Amazon.in
