The modern era (1850 AD to date) is divided into 'Sudharak Yug' or 'Narmad Yug' From the middle of 19th century, Gujarati, like other regional Indian languages, came under strong western influence, precisely due to colonial residence and colonial reign.

Munshi and, of course, the legend and nationalist himself, Mahatma Gandhi, gave it prominence in this age, 'Anu-Ghandhi Yug' (1940-1955 AD) where we find significant authors like In this era there is a dominance of poets like  Niranjan Bhagat, Rajendra Shah among others.
