As we forget the history of mass massacre and communal violence because the emergent political class promises bullet trains and smart cities, the book – first published in 1998 – acquires a new meaning. While it critiques a techno-militaristic model of modernization, it visualizes alternative possibilities to give a distinctively new meaning to our modernity. For social science students and researchers, teachers and visionaries, the book, despite the passage of time, continues to be relevant. With its lyrical style, its philosophic insights, its sensitivity to deep religiosity and life-affirming femininity, and above all, with its sociological imagination the book engages the reader, and makes her/him dream of a new road to modernity – beyond its present contradictions and paradoxes.
