He was motivated to write a page short story about two boys who fly kites in Kabul.
The parallels are pretty obvious, but I left a few things ambiguous because I wanted to drive the book clubs crazy. A lot of my childhood friends had a very hard time.
Some of our cousins died. One died in a fuel truck trying to escape Afghanistan [an incident that Hosseini fictionalises in The Kite Runner]. He was one of the kids I grew up with flying kites. His father was shot. Hassan is a successful "kite runner" for Amir; he knows where the kite will land without watching it.
Amir's mother passed away of illness when he was an infant while Hassan's mother simply abandoned him. Amir's father, a wealthy merchant Amir affectionately refers to as Baba, loves both boys.
He makes a point of buying Hassan exactly the same things as Amir much to Amir's annoyance. He even pays to have Hassan's cleft palate surgically corrected. On the other hand Baba jan is often critical of Amir, considering him weak and lacking in courage, even threatening to physically punish him when he complains about Hassan.
Amir finds a kinder fatherly figure in Rahim Khan, Baba's closest friend, who understands him and supports his interest in writing, whereas Baba considers that interest to be worthy only of females. In a rare moment when Amir is sitting on Baba jan's lap, he asks why his father drinks alcohol which is forbidden by Islam.
Baba jan tells him that the Imans are hypocrites and the only real sin is theft. Assef, an older boy with a sadistic taste for violence, mocks Amir for socializing with a Hazara, which according to him, is an inferior race whose members belong only in Hazarajat.
Notably Assef is himself only half Pashtun having a German mother and a typical blond haired blue eyed German appearance. One day, he prepares to attack Amir with brass knucklesbut Hassan defends Amir, threatening to shoot out Assef's eye with his slingshot.
Assef backs off but swears to take revenge one day.
One triumphant day, Amir wins the local kite fighting tournament and finally earns Baba's praise. Hassan runs for the last cut kite, a great trophy, saying to Amir, "For you, a thousand times over.
Hassan refuses to give up the kite, and Assef severely beats him and rapes him. Amir witnesses the act but is too scared to intervene. He knows that if he fails to bring home the kite, Baba would be less proud of him.
He feels incredibly guilty but knows his cowardice would destroy any hopes for Baba's affections, so he keeps quiet about the incident.
Afterwards, Amir keeps distant from Hassan; his feelings of guilt prevent him from interacting with the boy.
Amir begins to believe that life would be easier if Hassan were not around, so he plants a watch and some money under Hassan's mattress in hopes that Baba will make him leave; Hassan falsely confesses when confronted by Baba.
Although Baba believes "there is no act more wretched than stealing", he forgives him. To Baba's sorrow, Hassan and Ali leave anyway. Amir is freed of the daily reminder of his cowardice and betrayal, but he still lives in their shadow.
Baba and Amir escape to PeshawarPakistanand then to Fremont, Californiawhere they settle in a run-down apartment. Baba begins work at a gas station.Here's a compilation of Bollywood films that have made a business of over crores worldwide.
