ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on the argument of Partha Mitter against the universalized canon of Western modernism. He first mentions an Indian named Sir Sayed Ahmed Khan, an example of what Mitter has called a cosmopolitan Indian, one who initiates cross-cultural conversations as a way of decentering the coercive power of Western universalism. He notes Mitter's vision of modernism's potential for interconnecting humanity across the globe. He says that modernism in India is centered in something called a historical blush.
