Kabulowala Kabuliwala by Rabindranath Tagore we have the theme of connection, love, escape, trust, friendship, sadness and charity. Mini though at first afraid of Rahman gets to enjoy the time that she spends with him. She is intrigued by the goods he sells and rather than accepting the money for the purchased items. Rahman hands Mini back the money her father has given her.

However he always seems to be brought back down to rzbindranath by family life. There is also an element of trust in the story.

After Raham has been sentenced to jail for seven years. Mini after a period of time and as other girls would do forgets all about her friendship with Rahman. However despite the passing of time Rahman has never forgotten Mini.

There is also a sense that Mini does not recognise Rahman. There is no talk of their past and the meeting between the two ends abruptly.


This is more than hurtful for Rahman because he knows that he has a young daughter the same age as Mini in his village and she too most likely will not recognise Rahman. She knows what can happen on the streets of Calcutta and that Mini could easily be kidnapped.

To live her life to the best of her ability. Particularly when it comes to Rahman who has something that he can teach Mini. Rahman though he may have attacked a man with a knife over an unpaid debt has never brought any danger to Mini or her family. He at all times has been polite and good-natured when it comes to his engagement with Mini and her family.

He knows that Rahman has a daughter and he knows that it is better for him to visit his daughter. The life he had previously lived in Calcutta is no more. It affords Rahman the opportunity to not only see his daughter again but there may also be a possibility that Rahman can become a Kabuliwala again. A life that reader knows Rahman very much enjoyed. So too can Rahman be with his daughter back in his village. Rahman will be able to put behind him the seven years he spent in jail and start a fresh life all over again.
