This provocative work argues that India is experiencing a social crisis as a result of different aspects of Indian society developing at different rates. Focusing on communalism, political institutions, and general social codes, Saberwal argues that during and since the colonial period Indian
society has experienced dramatic social and technological development, yet most people continue to hold attitudes traditionally belonging to the much smaller universes of caste and village.
