“And The Mountains Echoed”,is the third novel of Khaled Hosseini.He was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. In 1980 he moved to  United States.

It is a story of a poverty stricken family,their need for financial support, separates them from one loving member.

The story takes place in Sadbagh,Kabul, San Francisco ,Paris and the Greek island of Tinos.

The characters are: Pari , Abdullah, Saboor,  Parwana,  Nabi,  Mr. And Mrs. Wahdati.

Pari and Abdullah are the daughter and son of Saboor, Parwana is the stepmother of Pari and Abdullah,  Nabi is the uncle of Pari and Abdullah and the brother of Parwana, Mr.and Mrs. Wahdati are Nabi’s boss.

The most important part in the story is Pari is given up for adoption.

While I was reading the book,I wondered if Pari and Abdullah will be reunited. When they were little they  promised to live together forever.They  were separated   when they were very young. I was pleased when they finally saw each other.

Khaled Hosseini’s purpose  I think is to show how poverty makes one completely helpless.

He is a very skillful story writer. He has a unique way of describing the people and places in his stories,it helps the reader to imagine what the people and the places are like by his written representation.

Sir Muhammad Iqbal

There are quite a few things happened in my life,which I can  say are ugly or distasteful .I find solace in thinking,maybe something good will come out of it.

I spent days and months watching hideous shows.I did not learn anything from them,I only wondered why do they waste their time creating something that is teaching nothing good but everything ugly and repulsive.All these I watched on YouTube. Suddenly I saw an actor, singing a song,I loved the tune,I continued to watch it. I wanted to know who he was, I read about him and my interest in this person, led me to another famous personality,his name is Allama Mohammad Iqbal, I was able to get all the information about him through the internet. It is a tool where  you can get a lot of good and bad things.It depends on our preference. I took online courses offered through Iqbal Academy.I was delighted I was learning something useful. My time was used wisely.

I no longer watch shows to pass my time. I am actually gaining knowledge I didn’t have. From online courses I added blogging in my list.I’m having a whale of a time.I read posts by other bloggers,I get recipes posted by them,gorgeous photographs by bloggers and a whole bunch of things.Everyday I learn something new from WordPress and from bloggers. I can definitely see the silver linings now more than ever. The encouraging comments from bloggers  helps  me to keep on writing.
