Answer the following question in about 80-120 word.

Write a paragraph on ‘The Grumble Family’ and their attitude towards other folks.

SOLUTION

A family lived in the Street of Complaining. Nobody liked them, as they were always complaining. They found fault in everything. They were never satisfied with anything. They growl at everything whether they are in a good position or a low position, they find fault in it and complain about it. When the weather is too hot or cold, they complain about it. They scold alike if it is winter or summer. Everything goes wrong with the people living down on that sad complaining street. It is a fact that their growling never gets completed or stopped. And if everything pleased them, there is no doubt, that they would grumble that there is nothing to grumble about.

Exercise | Q B.2 | Page 48

Answer the following question in about 80-120 word.

If you were to live in the Complaining Street, how would you deal with the people who grumble?

SOLUTION

If I were to live in the Complaining Street, I would never allow the pessimism of others to keep us from reaching the heights of victory. Many times, we come into contact with people who have nothing good or positive to say. All of their comments are negative and critical. Their focus is only on the bad. So with these people, I would always try my best to be an optimist, who sees the good and not the bad. I would communicate words that bring honour and. glory to God. I would deal with all the matters in a diplomatic way and advise the people who grumble, to be happy with what they are blessed with. They should be smiling and make their life a happy journey.

Exercise | Q B.3 | Page 48

Answer the following question in about 80-120 word.

From the poem ‘The Grumble Family’ what kind of behavior does the poet want the readers to possess?

SOLUTION

The poet wants the readers to be optimistic. He suggests that it is the wisest to keep away from going into the complaining street. We should never growl for whatever we do. Otherwise, we would be mistaken as grumblers. We should therefore learn to walk our way of life with a smile and a song. We should not bother ourselves, no matter, if things go wrong or if we are in a good or a low position. We should never belong to the family of Grumble. We should never be a complainer. But rather be one who praises God in all things he has blessed us with. We should trust that all things will work together for us if we have faith in God.
