The Kite Runner - A Novel by Khaled Hosseini

A week since I finished reading it

Am still reeling from the impact
Still trembling before the human tragedy
The enormity of it

They haunt me
Those tear streaked faces of children
Orphaned, hungry, terrified
The worst wounds of decades
Of political unrest

Where the clear stream of reason has lost its way
Into the dreary desert sands of dead habits
Tagore’s words –how true of Hosseini’s fictional world

How I wish it were just that
A fictional world


  1. nicely written... reminiscent of ak ramanujan...

  2. Hey the Archives do not show your older posts. Since you started blogging in 2005, I am guessing there should be a lot buried under archives, but no links to reach there. Could you remedy this?

    Sorry for using this space to say this!
