9th class -cbse english (NCERT BOOK-Moments)(long answers) chapter-1 (the lost child)(Mulk Raj Anand)


Answer following questions in about 100 words.

Q1) Why would the parents, as the boy thought, turn down his request?
Ans1) The boy was going to fair with his parents. Place was full of his favorite things. But he did not make a request to his parents for purchasing any of them. Because he knew that his parents’ reactions would be negative. They would have one or the other reason to refuse. If he ashed for ‘burfi’, they would have said that he was being greedy. For Gulmohur they would say it was cheap. They would refuse balloons also by saying that he was older to play with balloons. According to his parents the music of the snake-charmer’s flute was rough.

Q2) Compare the attitude of the child before and after his separation from the parents.
Ans2) In the beginning the child was with his parents. He was very happy and excited. He wanted to buy many things like Burfi, toys, garland, balloon etc. But he knew that his parents would refuse all his demands. Then he saw a snake charmer and liked the music of his flute. He wanted to enjoy the ride of roundabout. He was so absorbed in watching the roundabout that he got separated from his parents.
Now, his mood changed completely. He started crying. He rushed towards a crowed temple. He tried to enter the shrine but stuck at the gate. A kind hearted person picked him up. He offered him many things but the child had lost interest in them.
