Pambupatti is a peaceful village.
It is inhabited by different people
speaking different languages.
They follow different
but they honour all
equally.
religions
religions
They trust and help one another.
They are kind and hospitable.
Prem has seen religious frenzy
among the people of his village.
The people of his village fight in
the name of religion. Therefore,
he was determined not to return
to his village.
Makara dislikes tortoises because
they are slow and stupid and
carry their houses on their backs.
He dislikes snakes because they
are slimy and weird creatures.
He dislikes lizards because they
have strange habits and some of
them change colour every minute.
To begin with, the jungle was full
of a strange smell the smell of
rot. No one was left to eat rats.
So they became bold and took
over the forest. They even ate
the
eggs
of
lizards
and
crocodiles.
Frogs also became nuisance. Thus
all kinds of awful things began
to happen in the forest.
Prem wants to tell the story of
reptiles to the people of his
village so that they may live in
peace.
They
should
consider
the
importance of each other. No, I
don’t agree with the view. The
powerful can befool others for
some time but they cannot do so
for all the times.
The powerful is one whereas the
weak are many. When the weak
gain courage, the power of the
strong slips away.
If I were a baby crocodile, I
would tell Makara that he was not
only wrong but unjust also.
A powerful man should treat all as
equals. He should not distinguish
between them.
Ques1 In what way is Pambupatti different from any
other village?
Ans1 Pambupatti was different from other villages
because many kinds of people lived there—dark,
fair, tall, short. They spoke many languages. Some
ate meat, some did not. Some prayed in a small
temple at the edge of the forest. Others prayed in a
mosque some miles away.
Ques2 Why is Prem determined not to return to his
village?
Ans2 Prem was determined never to return to his
village because he burned with shame at the
hate and violence in his village.
Ques3 Why did Makara dislike tortoises, snakes
and lizards? Write a line about each.
Ans3 Makara disliked tortoises because he thought
they were slow and stupid, and they carried
their houses on their backs. He disliked snakes
because according to him they were slimy and
made funny noises. The reason he disliked
lizards was because they had the strangest
habits and some of them even changed colours.
Ques4 What went wrong when the tortoises, snakes and
lizards left the forest?
Ans4 When the tortoises, snakes and lizards left the
forest, everything went wrong. Awful things
began to happen. The dead bodies of animals
started rotting, and the smell of rot spread all
over the forest. The rats grew bolder by the day.
The frogs grew bigger and started eating the
baby crocodiles. The insects were there in
millions, and they were growing bigger and
nastier by the day.
Ques5 Why do you think Prem wants to tell the story
of the reptiles to the people of his village?
Ans5 Prem wanted to tell the story of the reptiles to
the people of his village so that they would realize
their mistake. He wanted them to stop hating
each other and put an end to the violence.
Ques6 Do you agree that it is difficult not to go along
with someone who is very strong and powerful?
Express your views frankly and clearly.
Ans6 Yes, it is very difficult not to go along with
someone who is very strong and powerful. This is
because of the feeling of fear. However, one
should remember that it is difficult, but not
impossible.
Ques7 If you were a baby crocodile, would you tell
Makara that he was wrong? What would
you say to convince him?
Ans7 Yes, if I was a baby crocodile, I would tell Makara
that he was wrong. I would tell him that all the
awful things like the rot in the forest and the
increasing populations of rats, frogs and insects
were because he had sent the tortoises, snakes
and lizards away.
