A Study on Human Relations in the Novels of Khaled Hosseini
and Atiq Rahimi

J. Dhivya Silvester, Full-time Research Scholar in English



Abstract

As the purpose of literature is mirroring human life and experience, authors try their level best in creating convincing and relatable characters with the readers. As realism dominates literature, modern literature too shows the multiplicity of human characters. The present study highlights the human relations in the novels of Khaled Hosseini and Atiq Rahimi.

Longing To Be Happy with Kith and Kin

All species are given certain life skills to flourish on earth. Human beings are very much in need of interpersonal skills to have happy and content life on earth. When they lack those skills they find vacuum in their life. As Mother Teresa says, “We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless. The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our homes to remedy this kind of poverty”.

The longing to be happy with one’s own kith and kin is the crux of the novels of Hosseini and Rahimi. Being Afghan born diaspora writers they have in their novels themes of diaspora literature. In all circumstances the characters don’t lose their faith on love and humanity. That adds beauty to the novels.
