dc.description.abstract Stories are always fascinating to every walk of life, but stories with magical or fantastical elements with of fairies or ghosts always amuse people. However, being a student of literature, I got an opportunity to look beyond this contemporary vision of magic realism. In postmodern literature, the attribution of magic realism is used to express the historical, cultural and ideological domination of the postcolonial regimes by its dictators. Therefore, in this dissertation I will discuss how all the magical elements are used by different postcolonial writers such as Marquez and Rushdie to express their postcolonial position in conjunction with the postmodern condition en_US
