CHARACTER sees the kite fighting competition as way

CHARACTER ANALYSISAMIR:         Amir is the central character of the story as well as the narrator. He had privileged upbringing. From his childhood he got everything he wanted but the only thing he felt is missing is his deep emotional connection with Baba.At the point when the author initially describes Amir’s youth, it appears like Amir lives a generally charming life. He has a great friend in Hassan, his dad is rich, he loves his dad. The first few years of Hassan and Amir’s friendship are full of joy and innocence but there is some jealousy and cruelty but the boys also share a bond full of loyalty and genuine affection. Amir believes that the hurdle between his and Baba’s relationship is the death of her mother who died giving birth to Amir. He thinks Baba believes that Amir is responsible for his wife’s death. He was also jealous of Hassan.  He admires his baba to no end but baba would always support Hassan as he has always stood up for himself and even Amir and he would participate and sports too. Baba was just confused by Amir’s lack of manliness. All of these tensions go to a limit during the kite fighting competition. Amir sees the kite fighting competition  as way to win Baba’s love. Amir then saw Hassan getting assaulted and does nothing. He then moved to California with baba  and it was a good way for him to overcome his regrets. Something really changes when he and baba lands in Fremont. Perhaps Amir adopts an easier way to live in America.It may be the case that Amir never again considers Baba to be an incredible father and just as a father. Or possibly Amir can disregard his feeling of selling out of Hassan.  Whatever the case Amir takes care of baba and meet a sympathetic and wonderful lady name Soraya whom he weds. After a month of Amir’s wedding baba dies and Amir’s generosity then increases even more. He wasn’t the narcissistic, malevolent kid anymore that we knew in Kabul. Despite all the improvements and good deeds, Amir remains silent about his past deeds. Baba dies without Amir ever telling him about the times he betrayed Hassan. Amir then flies back to Pakistan to meet Rahim Khan and discovers that Hassan is Amir’s half brother and Ali and Hassan have died and Hassan has a child named Sohrab. Back in Kabul, it appears as though Amir is at long last accomplishing something great in his life. After a few hesitations, Amir agrees to rescue Hassan’s child, Sohrab, from an orphanage in Kabul. The change in Amir’s character we find in the novel focuses on his development from a selfish youngster to a self-less grown-up. After allowing Hassan to be assaulted, Amir isn’t happy anymore. On the contrary, his guilt is relentless, and he recognizes his selfishness cost him his happiness rather than increasing it.HASSAN:                      Hassan is shown as a really decent and beautiful individual despite the fact that he’s had what’s coming to him of harsh circumstances. Hassan had a harder life than Amir from the earliest starting point. Not only Hassan loses his mom (like Amir), his mom level out rejected him. But unlike Amir, Hassan is self-less and joyful boy. Hassan gets even more saintly when Amir betrays him in the alleyway. Amir describes his expression as “the look of the lamb”. From the begin and through his demise,  Hassan remains the same: loyal, forgiving, and good-natured. From the beginning and through his demise, Hassan continues as before: steadfast, excusing, and amiable. As a hireling to Baba and Amir, Hassan grows up with an extremely specific part in life. While Amir gets ready for school in the morning, Hassan prepares Amir’s books and his breakfast. While Amir is at school getting education, Hassan helps Ali with household chores and grocery. Thus, Hassan discovers that it is his duty to sacrifice himself for others. BABA:In his words and activities, Baba sets a standard in the novel. At the point when Amir is a kid, Baba’s real worry about him is that he doesn’t have the boldness to go fight for himself, demonstrating that Baba places great value on doing what is right  On the off chance that Amir can’t take of himself as a kid, he stresses, he won’t have the quality to act ethically as a grown-up. When he and Amir went Kabul, he is willing to sacrifice his life to keep the Russian guard from raping the woman with them, and in doing so he sets the example that Amir will later follow when he must choose between saving himself or doing what he knows to be right. As Amir describes him, he is proud, independent, determined, but sometimes emotionally distant and impatient. Baba was a man torn between two halves, specifically between Amir and Hassan. Amir never sees Baba’s inner conflict because Baba has very much separated his outward appearance from his internal emotions. For instance, Baba builds an orphanage, which appears to be a simple act of charity. But as Rahim Khan explains, Baba built the orphanage to make up for the guilt he felt for not being able to acknowledge Hassan as his son. Baba’s hesitation to reveal his emotions causes Amir to feel that he never knows Baba completely, alienating Amir from Baba while Amir is growing up. The move to America is very difficult for Baba, who is used to being wealthy and well-respected in his community. He goes from having wealth and a position of power to working a low-paying job at a gas station and living modestly. Yet his relationship with Amir improves. Baba, as Rahim Khan explains in his note, felt guilty over his rich, privileged life because Hassan was not able to share in it. When he no longer has his wealth, his guilt diminishes, and with Hassan not around, he is not straining uncomfortably to act one way with Amir and another with Hassan. As a result, he is able to open up more with Amir, and the two grow much closer in Baba’s final years. Despite the fact that he lost everything he had as a refugee, he dies genuinely happy, feeling proud of Amir and perhaps happy that he was able to build the relationship he always wanted with at least one of his sons.ALI:        Father to Hassan and a servant of Baba. Ali is characterized by his modesty more than anything, and he works constantly as Baba’s servant. He loves Hassan deeply, though he rarely expresses his emotions outwardly. Poor and an ethnic Hazara, he suffers from partial paralysis of his face and walks with a limp caused by polio. Ali faces some serious abuse in the novel. Amir forces Ali and Hassan to leave Baba’s house. Finally, in the random violence now so common in war, Ali steps on a land mine and dies. However, like Hassan and Sohrab, Ali is a kind and good person. He remains faithful to Baba even though Baba dishonored Ali by sleeping with Sanaubar.RAHIM KHAN:                       The Friend of Baba and Amir. Rahim Khan is Baba’s nearest partner, who knows the greater part of Baba’s mysteries. For Amir, he serves a father figure, For Amir, he serves a father figure, often giving Amir the attention he craves and filling the holes left by Baba’s emotional distanceSANAUBAR:                      Hassan’s mother and Ali’s wife for a time. Though Sanaubar is infamously immoral in her youth and abandons Hassan just after he is born, she proves herself a caring grandmother to Sohrab when she reappears later in the novel.SOHRAB: Son of Hassan and Farzana. In many ways, Sohrab acts as a substitute for Hassan in the novel, and he is a central focus of the plot in the later sections of the book. He is also an ethnic Hazara and is great with a slingshot.FARID:            The first occasion when we experience Farid is the point at which he is driving with Amir. Amir is back in Afghanistan searching for Hassan’s child, Sohrab. Farid is a cabbie who has two spouses and used to have 7 kids. A land mine killed his two little girls, mutilated one of his feet and detached the greater part of the fingers his left hand. To state he has had it harsh is putting it mildly. While driving, Farid gives Amir a huge amount of state of mind and continues chuckling under his breath at everything Amir says. In the end Amir asks Farid for what reason he continues chuckling. Farid clarifies that he knows the sort of individual Amir is (despite the fact that the two have never met) he says that Amir was rich and had workers and never extremely comprehended Afghanistan. He tells Amir ”You’ve always been a tourist here, you just didn’t know it.’ In other words, Farid thinks Amir has no idea what Afghanistan is really like.We get another dose of what Farid thinks later when Farid is at his brother’s house with Amir. Farid’s brother asks Amir what brings him to Afghanistan. Before Amir gets a chance to answer, Farid butts in and says that Amir is here for the same reason everyone else is. To ”Sell this land, sell that house, collect the money and run away like a mouse. Go back to America, spend the money on a family vacation to Mexico.” Once again Farid expresses his bitter view that all the people who could make Afghanistan better are the ones who are leaving. Not only that but they are selling their homes and lands which means they are not committed to returning. Eventually, we learn that there is another side to Farid’s character. He can be humble and even apologize. When Farid learns that Amir is actually in Afghanistan to find Hassan’s son, Sohrab. Farid apologizes and says “It was wrong of me to assume.” Despite his blunt and somewhat bitter nature Farid clearly believes that the truth is very important. He could have the chosen to disregard the true nature of Amir’s visit but he helps him to find Sohrab.WAHID:        Wahid does not know much about Amir and is more open to finding out about him. He is a man who is less stoic with preferences about the general population who have left Afghanistan. He assumes the best about Amir by asking him for what valid reason he had returned. Which changes Farid’s impression of AmirZAMAN:          Zaman is the director of the orphanage that Sohrab was staying in. During the meeting with Zaman, Farid wanted to kill him. Zaman added another twist to the story. Amir and Farid had come to get Sobrab, but Zaman had stole him to the Talib official. Zaman seemed like a flat character but he affected Amir’s view. He became a dynamic character when he changed Amir’s path. Without him, Amir would be lost in the search of Hassan’s son.MARYAM:WAHID’S THREE SONS:
