is a very young girl , who plays an important role in the first part of the
story. She is extremely talkative and curious about
the things around her; she wants to

justification for everything. She just doesn't allow her father to complete th3 seventeenth chapter of his novel
as she wanted answers to her innocent and naïve questions. This chatty behaviour
quite liked by her mother.
Her first conversation with the kabuliwala shows how shy she is infront of

She had her own little jokes to share with the
kabuliwala. The Young mini would laugh and giggle
with the Afghan man. Even when he is arrested by the police ,
she doesn't see the blood
stains but only sees him and does not hesitate to have one last
conversation with him despite the fact that he was being taken away and was
held for doing something wrong. This innocent Mini soon grew up to be a quiet
women as seen in the latter half of the story.
