In the short story, “The Man From Kabul” by Rabindranath Tagore, there was a man known as the Kabuliwallah. He was a man from the mountains of Afghanistan, who made his living as a peddler of fruits and nuts. He had left his family behind to make his way through life, and during this time he began longing to see his daughter. Then one day he came across a young girl named Mini whom he felt resembled his daughter and he became attached.
Through the beginning of their relationship the Kabuliwallah and Mini were the best of friends. They would sing and laugh together for hours on end and some days the Kabuliwallah would bring the young girl dried fruits and nuts, but instead of paying the usual price for these goods the Kabuliwallah would give them to the young girl not out of personal profit but out of sheer happi.
