In the rays of the sun of York. Myth, statehood and imperial policy in North-West India. Baluchistan 1870-1914 - Language is a powerful tool for the creation and dissemination of myths. In this regard the Indian subcontinent was one of the places in which the British Empire wielded this tool with the greatest force. The mythical-symbolic construction of the tribal "nobility" of the proto-state of Kalat is a clear example of how that dynamic interfered with the local power structure.
