Share your views on ‘Money is the root of all evils.’

SOLUTION:


Money seems to be the most coveted of all things in today’s world. We, humans, have eyed money since time immemorial, but the greed for obtaining more money has surely reached its culmination in present times. Crimes such as frauds, scams, embezzlements, and thefts have increased due to people’s insatiable greed. The pursuit of money has surpassed all social aspects of human life, wherein friends and relatives are ‘made’ and ‘unmade’ based solely on one’s bank balance, size of a car, or the prestige of residential address. Such a tendency of materialism has spoilt the social fabric that used to be based on human bonds. It has certainly become the root of all evils.



Do you lend money to your friend? Give reasons.

SOLUTION:




Yes

No

A friend in need is a friend indeed.

If the friend fails to repay the money, the friendship can go sour.

My timely help will earn me his trust.

The friend might misuse my trust and misspend my money

If I help him now I can expect him to help me in my hour of need.

I might have a tough time convincing my parents to give me money to lend to my friend.




‘Money does not mean everything in life’. Discuss with your partner and justify the statement by giving examples. Take the help of the following points.

Money cannot give you eternal happiness. 

Art, music, and literature can give you unending happiness.

Money is short-lived.

Money cannot purchase happiness and contentment.


SOLUTION:


The students can elaborate the given pointers in the following ways:

Money cannot give you eternal happiness

The happiness that is derived from money will wear off sooner or later as the excitement provided by material possessions ceases after a point.

 

Art, music and literature can give you unending happiness

Indulgence in fields of humanities can continually provide one with newer insights, while books can be one’s windows to different worlds enabling one to gather multiple perspectives from different genres. The sublime power of music has been proven time and again. The happiness derived from these indulgences last forever because the emotions experienced through them last forever. Art, music, and literature can have a life-changing impact on one’s life and can be a source of joy so great that everything else pales in comparison.

 

Money is short-lived

Money is of fickle temperament, it can take one from rags to riches and riches to rags too, due to circumstances beyond one’s control. Thus, one may not always have access to all the comforts and luxuries that money can buy. At such a stage, one would be forced to look for comfort in other things in life like friendships, relationships, etc.

 

Money cannot purchase happiness and contentment

With money, one can buy the most expensive things, but one cannot put a price on happiness. The feeling of joy and contentment comes from within. It cannot be purchased or sold. One can buy stuff that makes one happy, but that happiness will eventually wear off. The only way for one to be genuinely happy and content is to generate that happiness from within. A person who is content with self is content at all times.

Friends came knocking all day at the poet’s door.


SOLUTION:


Friends came knocking all day at the poet’s door because the poet had money and they thought that they could benefit from being with a wealthy man.



Poor men’s wives hum like bees.


SOLUTION:


Poor men’s wives ‘hum like bees’, meaning that they constantly talk, because despite the fact that their husbands work from morning till night, they are happy in their poverty.



Money makes the world go round. Explain it in the light of the poet’s experience.


SOLUTION:


‘Money makes the world go round’ is aptly proved by the poet’s experience. When he had money, many false ‘friends’ would come knocking at his door. But when the poet became poor, his circle had only a few friends left, who were nevertheless true to him.



Poor men need not go up so much as rich men should come down. Express your views regarding this statement.


SOLUTION:


The statement “poor men need not go up so much as rich men should come down” signifies that it is not required for the poor people to become rich because it is in poverty that they have found true happiness. However, it is important for rich men to become poor, only to realize the meaning of true happiness. More often than not, joy can be found only when one is poor because richness attracts all kinds of fake people who want to be around a person only to benefit from his/her wealth; whereas poverty attracts genuine people who stay with a person because they truly care about him/her and not about whether he/she is rich or poor.

Appreciation of the poem ‘Money’

The poem ‘Money’ is written by William H. Davies. It is a reflective poem that deals with the poet’s status as both, a rich and a poor man. Based on his own narrative, the poet has depicted a connection between money and personal happiness. The theme of the poem is the inverse relationship between money and happiness since the poet had many false friends during his times of richness, and much fewer but real friends when he has become poor. The poem has been written in five stanzas of four lines each and follows a different rhyme scheme for each stanza-

Stanza 1 – a a b a, Stanza 2 – c a d a,

Stanza 3 – e f g f, Stanza 4 – h i j i,

Stanza 5 – a k a k. 

The poet has beautified the poem by employing numerous figures of speech such as Alliteration, Antithesis, Consonance, Exclamation, Inversion, Onomatopoeia, Metaphor, Metonymy, Simile, and Repetition. An example of Onomatopoeia from the poem is “And how their wives do hum like bees” where the word ‘hum’ denotes the sound made by the wives as they constantly talk about their husbands working from morning till night. Among the special features of the poem, imagery and enjambment are more prominent. The use of imagery can be seen in the phrases “came knocking all day at my door”, “...a child that holds a trumpet that he must not blow”, “...and seen how poor men’s hearts are light”, “wives hum like bees”, “hear poor ones laugh”, “see rich ones coldly frown”, “go up” and “come down”. Each line of the poem runs into the next line, thus making enjambment a key feature of the poem. The poet follows a simple, narrative style to convey his thoughts. Through this poem, the poet is trying to spread the message that wealth is not required to be truly happy. In fact, happiness lies in having genuine people in life, which makes the poor man truly wealthy; as he might not have monetary wealth or a lot of people in his life, but the ones he does have are true to him, thus making him wealthy in the true sense. In my opinion, the poem aptly describes the allure of money, which often draws a lot of fake people in one’s life. It is only when one is poor does one realize the meaning of true happiness, because that is when one finds out who actually are his/her real friends.
