Although this is real, they are the minority and in reality the only thing that counts is the opinion of the greatest number of people. Also, you can say that there is not a clear division in the Afghan society, because Amir and Hassan are friends, but is this real? Do both children feel right with this friendship? The answer is no. According to Amir in page 25: ‘’the curious thing was, I never thought of Hassan and me as friends either (…) because history isn’t easy to overcome.
Amir and Hassan cultures interfered with their friendship. Amir says, “I was Pashtuns and he was a Hazara, I was Sunni and he was Shi’a and nothing was ever going to change that” (Hosseini 25). Not lonely that they had different cultures they also had different personalities. Hassan was loyal and faithful to Amir no matter what was happening; however, Amir was not
The answer to every single one of these questions is no, and that is the reason Asoka is an enlightened ruler: He did the exact opposite of what a ruthless conqueror would do. In conclusion, Asoka Maurya of the Mauryan empire was an enlightened ruler because of his Buddhist beliefs and his rejection of violence.This could change the way one looks at their leaders and respects them
After the battle, Asoka sat under the Bodhi Tree that Buddha had once sat under. And Asoka found enlightenment that day, Asoka was forever a changed man. Document C reads, ' 'A rejection of the path of violence...he gave rich gifts to the poor...consulted local communities about proper goverment". Asoka did for his people once he found inner peace. He granted prisnors a respite for three days, so they could talk and say a final goodbye to loved ones before they were killed.
Most Hazaras worked for Pashtuns, in this case, Amir is a Pashtun and Hassan is a Hazara that works for him and his father. In this society it is very difficult to find your true identity, a lot of factors come into play, whether it is people or events that you encounter. Due to the large difference in both Pashtuns and Hazaras, the idea of power plays a strong role. People with power end up abusing it, which leads to the corruption of power. The core of identity is figuring out “who am I” and learning who you are is the core of your life’s journey.
Amir abuses his privileges over his servant and loyal friend, Hassan and then fails to come to his aid when Hassan is being raped after a kite-fighting tournament. He is seen as selfish, a horrible friend, yet the readers feel compassionate for him.“That was a
This is a very significant theme as it sculpted the entire adult life of Amir. After Amir and Baba had moved to San Francisco, Amir attended community college in hopes that he would be a successful writer. However, in the year 2001, he received a call from Baba’s former business partner Rahim Khan, whilst at home with his wife Soraya. Rahim Khan always acted as a father figure to Amir and gave him the love that he always lacked from Baba and for this reason, Amir was happy to hear from him. During their conversation, Rahim Khan told Amir that “there was a way to be good again” to which Amir instantly knew the reason for his statement.
In Ancient India, the people named their flag after Asoka. He did great things for the Mauryan Empire that gave a good ending, but were the means of the ending just? Asoka ruled Ancient India and changed the history of it doing good and bad things for himself but for his empire. Was it being Ruthless or Enlightened? His responsibility for many deaths, his wanting of unfair wars, the unjust laws all clearly imply that Asoka is a Ruthless Conqueror.
it is said by Ashoka himself a country will not exist if communities with different interests are not there in the country. Not only the people living inside the boundaries of kingdom can enjoy this but it also includes all the tribes and people living in forest which tell us that if anyone tries to follow evil practices (as explained by Ashoka) will give the right to ruler to punish them and the punishment will be equal for all, talking of punishment in Ashoka’s Dhamma punishments are not meant to be harsh and if it is possible to forgive the person committing crimes and evil practices they should be forgiven, killing a person for his misdeed is the least acceptable punishment one can give hence giving respect to the life of all the creatures(human beings as well as animals). Rock Edict XIII explains how everyone is encouraged to be equal towards people from all the sections of society and should respect everyone.Conquest by dhamma is considered to be the best by Ashoka instead of conquest by war as it results in loss of life which is considered to
