Summary of The Last Leaf Class 9 English Moments with Hindi Summary

The story is about young artists: Sue and Johnsy. They lived in the same flat. One day, in November, Johnsy was affected with pneumonia. She used to lie on the bed and gaze out the window. She would count the leaves of the ivy creeper. She thought that she would die when the last leaf fell. Johnsy's friend Sue tried to convince her that it was autumn and so it is pretty normal that the leaves should be shed. But Johnsy didn't listen to her words. She kept on counting backwards. To make her active Johnsy thought of talking to her about interesting things like clothing and fashion. But Johnsy lay still in her bed. Then Sue said that she was going to draw the painting of an old miner. So she went to call her neighbour Mr Behram to act as their model. Meanwhile, Sue shared her worries about Johnsy to Behrman. He came to see Johnsy and found that Johnsy had fallen asleep. Then Sue opened the windows and shown him the last leaf from the ivy. After seeing that Mr Behram left the place. In the night, there was a heavy storm and wind. On the following day, Johnsy asked Sue to open the curtains. When Sue opened the curtains, they found that the last leaf didn't fall and it looked green and healthy. After seeing that, Johnsy realised her foolishness and started recovering from her health. Then the doctor came and examined Johnsy and said that her health was improving. Meanwhile, he informed that Mr Behrman was affected with pneumonia. The next day, Sue told Johnsy that Mr Behrman had passed away. He had been in the out when the heavy storm blew. Sue asked Johnsy whether she knew why the last leaf was not falling. She informed her that it was Mr Behrman's masterpiece.

The Last Leaf Summary

A girl named Johnsy catches pneumonia. Her bed was near the window which overlooked the brick wall of the opposite house. A very old ivy vine climbed halfway up the brick wall. It was winter and its leaves were falling. A strange idea took hold of Johnsy's mind. She began to think that when the last ivy leaf fell, she would also pass away. Her condition went from bad to worse with the falling of each leaf from the ivy. Her friend, Sue, tried her best to get this foolish idea out of Johnsy's mind but in vain. When only one leaf was left on the ivy, Johnsy began to prepare herself for death. Then Sue thought of a plan to save the life of her friend. When Johnsy was asleep at night, Sue went to an old painter named Behrman. It was raining hard and the last ivy leaf fell during the night. Behrman painted a leaf in green colour, which looked exactly like the real leaf.
Next morning when Johnsy woke up, she began to wait for the last leaf to fall. But the leaf didn't fall even after two days and two nights. It filled Johnsy with a new hope. Her condition began to improve. When she was completely out of danger, Sue told her that the last leaf was not the real leaf, but a mere painting by Behrman. She also told her that Behrman worked in rain during the night and caught pneumonia. He died the next day.
Behrman had desired all his life to paint a masterpiece but had never been able to begin it. But the last leaf that he painted before his death, really proved a masterpiece.

The Last Leaf Summary in Hindi

जॉह्रसी नाम की एक लड़की को न्यूमोनिया हो जाता है। उसका बिस्तर उस खिड़की के पास था जो सामने वाले घर की ईंट की दीवार की दिशा में खुलती थी। एक बहुत पुरानी सिरपेंचे की लता ईंट की दीवार की आधी दूर ऊपर तक चढ़ी हुई थी। शरद ऋतु थी और उसके पत्ते झड़ रहे थे। जॉह्रसी के दिमाग में एक अजीब विचार आया। वह सोचने लगी कि जब सिरपेंचे का आखिरी पत्ता गिरेगा तो वह भी मर जाएगी। सिरपेंचे से प्रत्येक पत्ते के गिरने के साथ उसकी हालत बद से बदतर होती गई। उसकी सहेली स्यू ने जॉह्रसी के दिमाग से यह मूर्खतापूर्ण विचार निकालने की बहुत कोशिश की किन्तु सब व्यर्थ गया। जब सिरपेंचे पर केवल एक पत्ता रह गया तो जॉह्नसी स्वयं को मृत्यु के लिए तैयार करने लगी। तब स्यू ने अपनी सहेली की जान बचाने के लिए यह योजना सोची। रात को जब जॉह्रसी सोई हुई थी तो स्यू बरमैन नाम के एक बूढ़े चित्रकार के पास गई। जोरों की वर्षा हो रही थी और रात को सिरपेंचे का आखिरी पत्ता गिर गया। बरमैन ने एक पत्ते को हरे रंग में रंग दिया जो बिल्कुल असली पत्ते की भान्ति प्रतीत होता था।
अगली सुबह जॉह्रसी जागी तो वह आखिरी पत्ते के गिरने की प्रतीक्षा करने लगी। परन्तु दो दिन और दो रातों के बाद भी पत्ता नहीं गिरा। इसने जॉह्रसी के मन में एक नई आशा भर दी। उसकी हालत सुधरने लगी। जब वह पूरी तरह से खतरे से बाहर हो गई तो स्यू ने उसे बताया कि वह आखिरी पत्ता असली पत्ता नहीं था बल्कि मात्र बरमैन के द्वारा की हुई चित्रकारी थी। उसने उसे यह भी बताया कि रात को बरमैन ने वर्षा में काम किया और उसे न्यूमोनिया हो गया। अगले दिन वह मर गया।
बरमैन की जीवन भर एक उत्तम चित्र बनाने की इच्छा थी लेकिन वह उसे कभी आरम्भ नहीं कर पाया था । किन्तु अपनी मृत्यु के पहले उसने जो आखिरी पत्ते की चित्रकारी की थी, वास्तव में अति उत्तम कृति सिद्ध हुई ।
