All the countries those who have experienced the colonial occupation had to undergo a change in their culture and civilization. Similarly, the people of the colonized states dwelt in a situation in which they would become liminal characters. The present study explores the liminal characters in Twilight in Delhi by Ahmed Ali. Liminality is one of the issues of postcolonial studies which has been propended by Homi Bhabha, and the researcher has taken postcolonialism as a general framework of the study. The critical study of the novel shows that the major character, as well as minor characters of the novel, are liminal ones.
