Afghans cherish custom but abhor rules.And so it was with kite fighting.The rules were simple:No rules.Fly your kite.Cut the opponets.Good luck.To this day,I find it hard to gaze directly at people like Hassan,people who mean every word they say...And that is the thing about people who mean everything they say.They think everyone else does too.fifteen years of marriage had turned us into mind readers.
Taliban,阿富汗政治组织，主要由普什图人组成，1994年在坎大哈成立，推行原教旨主义，禁止电视、录像、音乐、跳舞等，随后于1996年执政，直到2001年被美国军队击溃。I see America has infused you with the optimism that has made her so great.That is very good.We are a melancholic people,we Afghans,aren`t we?Often,we wallow too much in ghamkhori and self-pity.We give in to loss,to suffering,accept it as a fact of life,even see it as necessary.Zendagi migzare,we say,life goes on.But I am not surrending to fate here,I am being pragmatic.I have seen several good doctors here and they have given the same answer.I trust them and believe them.There is such a thing as God`s will.But I hope you will heed this:A man who has no conscience,no goodness,does not suffer.I hope your suffering comes to an end with this journey to Afghanistan.Sometimes,I think everything he did,feeding the poor on the streets,building the orphanage,giving money to friends in need,it was all his way of redeeming himself.And that,I believe,is what true redemption is,Amir jan,when guilt leads to good.Quiet is peace.Tranquillity.Quiet is turning down the volume knob on life.Silence is pushing the off button.Shutting it down.All of it.Sohrab`s silence wasn`t the self-imposed silence of those with convictions,of protesters who seek to speak their cause by not speaking at all.It was the silence of one who has taken cover in a dark place,curled up all the edges and tucked them under.
