INVESTIGATING POINT OF VIEW IN AHMED ALI’S TWILIGHT IN DELHI
The main objective of the research is to investigate how a character in Ali's Twilight in Delhi is constructed in relation to point of view and transitivity patterns. The study demonstrates that five of the characters—Asghar, Mir Nihal, Begum Nihal, Begum Jamal, and Bilqeece—are stereotypes of significant members of Indian Muslim families. These stereotypical individuals provide Ali with a backdrop against which to highlight his sociopolitical philosophy. Ali, who represents the intolerant yet indifferent citizen, exhorts him to get up and battle to alter his society by systematic adjustments in the transitivity patterns Mir Nihal is linked with. Through transitivity patterning among the numerous narrative views employed in the work, the study sheds light on point of view variances in the portrayal of character. The study supports the transitivity model's assertion that a text's linguistic characteristics typically reflect its ideational concerns. Additionally, it has ramifications for future narratology, stylistic, and studies of Twilight in Delhi.
