    Abstract:
    Urdu Scholarship, which depends heavily on positivist paradigm, usually does not consider the social variables in interpreting the literary works. The social hierarchy prevalent in North India has strong imprints on Urdu literati of 19th century. In this article Sharar's Ghaib Daan Dulhan has been analysed from a social perspective. Representational techniques used by Sharar to differentiate characters belonging to different social backgrounds has also been discussed here.
