Study of Socio-Cultural Transition in Twilight in Delhi with reference to Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory
The study investigated Socio-cultural aspects in novel ‘Twilight in Delhi’ by Ahmed Ali published in 1940. It analyzed the cultural and social transition that the sub-continent was going through during the British rule in the region. Vygotsky’s sociocultural theory has provided the theoretical framework for the study which describes how the society plays its role in learning and shapes the behavior of the individuals. Qualitative research has been used and the content analysis of the primary data has been made which has been taken from the text of the novel. The findings indicated how the behavior of the main characters was transformed as they come under the influence of two different cultures. It was identified that younger generation mainly represented through the character of Asghar was more influenced by the British culture than his elders like Mir Nihal primarily because both grew up in different socio-cultural settings.
