He got up the horse but it did not move. Aram had no idea now to kick on the muscles of the horse to get it moving. The only way Mourad could possess it could be by stealing. Ethics of a person differentiate him from others. The world, for Aram, at that time, seemed to be a delightful and extremely joyous yet mysterious dream.
The world, for Aram, at that time, seemed to be a delightful and extremely joyous yet mysterious dream. In 1943, Saroyan married actress Carol Marcus with whom he had two children, Aram, who became an author and published a book about his father, and Lucy, who became an actress. The story portrays a light irony. He loved adventure and singing. This is the story of the beautiful white horse. Aram has always wanted to ride a horse, but his family is too poor to afford one.
The story shows that values are more important than all the money one could have. They hid it from the rest of the world by keeping it in a barn of the deserted vineyard. He could not afford to buy such a lovely horse. But he paid no serious attention to it and repeated his words rudely. The horse had been taken only for fulfilling their amusement and not for the purpose of selling. Such was the boys' family famous for their honesty that the thought of his horse being stolen by the boys never crossed John's mind.
Who were Aram and Mourard? It is values which brings people together. These words were spoken by Mourad to Aram. In the days to follow, both the boys take out the horse from its hiding place every morning to ride in the countryside. One morning Aram is awakened before dawn by his older cousin Mourad, who is thought to be demented by everyone except Aram and has a way with animals. One of his most cherished dreams was to have a horse ride.
One fine day they came across John, the farmer. The Garoghlanian was or is an Armenian family that migrated to California. John recognizes the dentures of the horse and comments that it is identical to his own. Many of his stories and plays are set in his native Fresno. He had harboured hopes of actually riding one but at the same time he feared that it had been stolen.
In all probability he must have recognised his horse but he gave the boys the benefit of doubt keeping his faith in the impeccable reputation of their family for honesty and integrity. At the end everyone throughout the short story had a happy ending. The Garoghlanian tribe was always known for its honesty and still the older generations of the impoverished tribe uphold their trademark honesty but the new ones are no more ready to pretend. Aram was in a positive rebellion with Mourad. When Aram found out that Mourad was behind all of this he told Mourad to return it right away!! The author rubbed his eyes to make sure that he was not dreaming. He wished he also knew to have a way with horses just like Mourad.
Hence it cannot be called a stealing. Very cleverly he hid the horse in a deserted bam and took it out at daybreak for a joy-ride. One fine day they came across John, the farmer. Both Aram and Mourad were members of the impoverished Garoghlanian family. Meanwhile, Aram came to know that the horse was stolen from John Byro. They left the horse in the barn after patting it affectionately. He looks at the horse very eagerly and studies it tooth by tooth.
He took many happy rides on it. Since their family can never afford to pay for such a beautiful animal, Aram does not take too long to deduce that Mourad has stolen the house. This is a story of two tribal Armenian boys who belonged to the Garoghlanian tribe. However, the Garoghlanian family is noted not only for its poverty but also for its honesty, so it is unthinkable that Mourad would have stolen the horse. The setting of the story seems to be Depression time in California, which makes reading even more interesting. The following day they return the horse before everyone except the dogs is awake.
