From The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini:
Was there happiness at the end, they wanted to know. If someone were to ask me today whether the story…. ends with happiness, I wouldn’t know what to say. Does anybody’s? After all, life is not a Hindi movie. Zendagi migzara, Afghans like to say: Life goes on, unmindful of beginning, end, kamyah, nah-kam, crisis or catharsis, moving forward like a slow, dusty caravan of kochis.
