The emergence on the outskirts of major Indian cities of real boomtown whose landscapes break with the rest of the former urban fabric, questions observers. Some see the emergence of a new urban model, described as postmodern, for the contrasts and social fragmentation that it generates. A rereading of the transposition of the concept of modernity in India casts doubt on the reality of an interpretation by the gap and the utility of the use of post-modernity to interpret these changes.
