Dilnoza Ramatjanovna Ruzmatova


This article gives information about the writing method of Afghan-born American writer KhaledHosseini, moreover,discusses the human relations and their importance in the society through his novel“The Kite Runner”. The reasonable contrast between two Afghan ethnic groups Hazara and Pashtun stands alone in the work and this phenomenon can demonstrate the country’s forever customs and traditions. Hosseini as a representative of his nation’s culture and history can fulfill his task successfully considering the acceptable consumption of real, factual, historical and fictional information. The relationship among a reader, the writer and the main characters makes invisible imaginary triangulation while accepting inborn humanistic qualities one asks himself/herself the same question “Who is guilty?” for the fate of the poor country Afghanistan. The writer’s talent lies on his clear cognition that the children who do not possess childhood, the women who cannot feel feminine, the men who never sleeps in peace and the country where a heap of ruins spread, all these unfortunate continuous pictures, are in a hurry and do not know how to stop, where to stop and when to stop. The major theme of the novel is the celebration of humanism/human relations in the bombing country.Hosseini through his main personages Amir, Hassan and Baba can point out that Afghan people are heroes in their blood, and it is shame to blame them for the actions happening in their land.
