QUESTION6

Maharashtra Board Class 10 English Solutions Unit 1.2 The Thief’s Story

Think and write in your own words, in your notebook.

(a) Why did Anil employ Hari as a cook, although he could not afford to pay him?

SOLUTION

Anil wanted someone to cook for him. He felt that perhaps Hari could cook for him, and in i return he could feed him, as he could not afford to pay him. Anil was also kind-hearted and probably felt / sorry for Hari.

(b) What did Hari learn from Anil in the beginning?

SOLUTION

In the beginning, Anil taught Hari to cook and write his name.

(c) Why didn’t Anil hand over Hari to the police? What effect would it have had on Hari?

SOLUTION

Anil was probably too kind-hearted to hand Hari over to the police. He might also have thought that he could try to make an honest man of Hari. If he had handed Hari over to the police, Hari would’ probably have been very bitter and angry, and would have continued in his dishonest ways. Not handing him over to the police had a positive effect on Hari, and may have changed the way he lived his life.

(d) Do you feel Anil’s way of handling a thief like Hari was effective? Justify your answer.

SOLUTION

Yes, Anil’s way of handling a thief like Hari was effective. Anil knew that Hari was not a hardened seasoned thief. He had realized that Hari really wished to learn to write whole sentences, get an education and become a big man. So by forgiving him and giving him the motivation to learn, he changed Hari. Handing him over to the police would have branded Hari a thief for life and the sudden reform might never have been possible.

(e) What tact had Anil used to change Hari’s dishonest ways?

SOLUTION

Anil had ignored Hari’s attempts at robbing him. He had then encouraged Hari by saying that they would start writing sentences, for he knew that I this was what Hari wished for wholeheartedly. Anil provided motivation for Hari to change his ways.

(f) ‘And the smile came by itself without any effort.’ Say why. When do people give fake smiles?

SOLUTION

People give fake smiles when they are not happy with the situation they are in, or they realize that the other person is trying to cheat them or they want to get something.
