Contrary to the argument that increased modernization and interactions among people across nations unleashed by the forces of globalization would dampen the inclination among people to cling to their national, sub-national and ethnic identities, the article argues that modernity has not replaced tradition as the latter enjoys mass appeal not only because it provides a sense of rootedness amidst economic, political and social changes, it has also scientific and rational elements (the core elements of modernity) within it. Therefore, modern states provide sufficient space for construction of identities and the article discusses construction of identities in Bhutan in the larger context of evolving modernity.



Modernity, Tradition, Identity Politics, Buddhism.
