In the early 19th century, the elites of the sub-continent ruled by the British started to conceive the French culture as an instrumental factor in modernity making. From the 1870 onwards, the attempts of the British authorities to contain their emancipation increased the interest of the Indian elites in French language and culture. If this effort towards emancipation from the British rule takes the Indian elite closer to the country of the revolution and of the lingua franca of the cosmopolitan elite.;;Samuel Berthet, historian researcher, is a specialist on contemporary India. He is a research coordinator of the European project, Europe-India maritime history.
