The Western narrative of Modernity, an ideological growth of capitalism, has disciplined and shaped India's dream of development from the colonial era to the globalised present. An integral part of the colonising/civilising project, the myth of modernity stood for a market-driven industrial economy, bureaucratic government, liberal-democratic politics, and Western education. These would supposedly help backward nations achieve the status of developed nations once they prepare themselves for it. Modernity was a myth that validated imperialism by plotting India's position on the lower segment of the graph of development in a vision of history that advanced towards the perfection of civilization.
