Gandhi Meets Primetime investigates how cultural imaginations of national identity have been transformed by the rapid growth of satellite and cable television in postcolonial India. It examines the impact of the changing media on the idea of "community" in India and explores the influence of transnational networks on India's hybrid national identity, as well as the role that vernacular media plays in the discourse of electronic capitalism. With index.
