Amir frequently doesn’t succeed to live up to Babas values. The failure relies on Babas disregard of love towards his own son. Instead he would give his attention and appreciation to his servant’s son Hassan when he would be extraordinary or successful. Babas idea and understanding of being strict holds to be true of looking after number one.

However he redeems himself, after Rahim Khan declares that there is a way to be good again, by rescuing Sorab from his harmed homeland. Amir learns to make peace with his incident with Hassan and at the end of the novel is able to use one of Hassan’s most heart wrenching quotations, “for you a thousand times over”, to build a relationship with Hassan’s orphaned child.

However, Amir does not become a man when he brings back the kite for Baba because he sacrifices his loyal brother Hassan for the paper kite. Amir finally understands what it takes to become a better man in his moment of redemption when he instead, retrieves the kite for Sohrab.

The benevolent spirit gave him motivation to share this experience with others through this essay and apologize the young man. The narrator (hero) thinks that what if in place of the young man would be his own son so in order to avoid any problem in future he conveyed his message of helping others “ The thing I would want to someone to do, if they ever found my son crying in an elevator”. At this moment I can see the narrator resembling to Karma and this reminded me of the movie “Let alone” about Karma what you do in your life effects your future.
Night: Passage Analysis Troubling thoughts consumed young Elie because he saw the ways in which father-son relationships are torn asunder by the camps. He watches as sons deny—or at least consider denying—care to their fathers, putting their own interests before their loved ones. Elie struggles with the same conflict when his father becomes ill, and when his father finally dies, Elie is profoundly sad though also proud that he never wholly compromised his own beliefs about family.
