Friendship is a very difficult word to describe in words,as it is an emotional relationship,an attachment between  two is not necessary that friends are of the same age,class,gender,religion,etc.anyone can be friends with the short story.we see a 5 year old girl Mini,befriending a Kabuliwala. the relationship between the two is not based on any selfish interests or motifs-it is merely that both of them enjoy the company of each other words,it can be said that friendship is a beautiful feeling that two people ,in this case-Mini and Kabuliwala share.
