Abstract: The idea of India as a modern and democratic nation state was imagined and articulated by the emergent Indian middle-classes during the later phase of the British colonial rule over the subcontinent. Over the last two decades, the Indian middle-class has been celebrated for its economic achievements in the new global economy. It has also been expanding in size, providing critical market base to the process of economic growth and stability to democratic politics.
