Ibn al-Vaqt, Culture, Identity, 1857, Nazir Ahmed, Literature.

Identity is the construction of the cultural process of a people, i.e. the social milieu in turn defines and shapes humans into the kinds of individuals they are. This shaping of identity is carried further and represented through the literature of a culture as well. It is the characters which come to stand for certain traits and the kinds of individuals which a particular culture consists of. This essay studies the characters of Nazir Ahmed’s Ibn al- Vaqt, juxtaposing them against each other, and exploring how their identities reflect post-1857 time in India.
