The Fun they Had

The Road Not Taken (Poem)

In this poem, the poet stands at the end of two roads and is in a dilemma which road he should choose. One road looks frequently travelled and the other one looks less travelled and grassy. The poet takes the second road and hopes that he would take the first road some other day although he is not sure whether he would ever come back. The two roads serve as a metaphor for the choices we make in life. Life throws up many alternatives. If the choice made by us happens to be not correct, we have to face the consequences as steps once taken cannot be retracted.

The Sound of Music

The story is divided into two parts. In the first part, we will know about Evelyn Glennie who is a virtuoso percussionist. She can play about 1000 instruments with  perfection.

As a five year old boy, he played gilli-danda near a pond. He used to visit Bihariji temple and sing Bhojpuri Chaita there. At the age of six, he  moved to Benaras. He learnt playing Shehnai there from his uncle Ali Bux. Being devoted  to music, he used to spend most of his time practising on the bank of the river Ganga. He got the best performer award of the All India Music Conference in Allahabad in 1930. In  1937 he bagged three medals at a music conference in Kolkata. He was invited by Pandit  Nehru to play the Shehnai from the ramparts of Delhi’s Red Fort in 1947.

Wind (Poem)

This poem describes the power of the wind on nature and human life. When troubles come in life the weak people are affected more. If the structures in the path of the wind are weak, then wind will destroy them. This shows that when troubles come in life, the weak are more affected. So the poet asks the readers to become strong so that they can solve their problems.

The Little Girl

This story show inter-personal relationships between parents and their children. Kezia’s father was a busy man. Being an over disciplined man, he was strict with Kezia. He never had those soft feelings for his little daughter nor did he pat her for a while. All he did was giving her a perfunctory kiss rather than a loving one. His presence at home frightened  Kezia and she felt relieved when he was gone. Kezia was able to speak without stuttering but in her father’s presence she stuttered and had all those speech problems. Despite this all, Kezia’s father had a loving heart.
The Macdonalds who lived next door had an exuberant, lively, playful family. Kezia saw the five children playing with their father, turning a hose at him and the father tickling the children. When compared with her scary father who never played with her, Kezia saw the height of love between father and children next door and she loved the Macdonald family.

She joined a course at Uttarkashi’s Nehru Institute of Mountaineering. Within twelve months, she scaled the Everest a second time.

A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal (Poem)

The poet describes how a snake is trying to get away from a man who is chasing him with a stick. The poet tries to say that all snakes are not poisonous. Some of them are quite harmless.

Otherwise, it is as harmless as any other creature. But sadly human beings always try to kill a snake as soon as they see it.
