41. Narrate the story, ‘I Can’t Climb Trees Anymore’, in your own

words.

  • Lesson : I can’t climb trees anymore
  • Author : Ruskin Bond
  • Character : Self, Boy, and mother
  • Theme: A possibility becomes an impossibility at times

Here is the story of my visit to my ancestral house. We had lived in that house for about twenty years. I went there to see it. It was very old but it looked majestically. I remembered the old saying. ‘Old is Gold’. I stood near the well painted old gate, staring at the house. He invited me to his house. His mother was there. His father had gone on an official tour.

My eyes searched for the house. I told his mother about the precious thing that we left when we sold this house. I took them into a room inside the house. I climbed on a ladder and looked for it in the upper shelf. It was never opened since we left. In the midst of certain old things, I saw it. I was extremely happy. They were surprised to see it. It wasn’t rusty.

It was an air gun my grandfather had been using. He had given it to me. I brought it down carefully. They were surprised to see my precious treasure. They allowed me to take it home. I left the place saying goodbye to the boy and the mother. I walked down the road with my treasure having my eyes filled with tears of joy.

42. Describe how his anger kept growing.

  • The poet confessed that when he was angry with his enemy, he did not reveal his anger to his enemy. He feared that if he expressed his anger to him, his enemy would do harm to him. So he suppressed his anger. Day and night he shed tears thinking about the ill or the injustice that had been caused by his enemy to him. Thus, he watered the tree of anger with his tears, allowing the anger to grow. He also aroused his anger with his false smiles and cunning tricks towards his enemy. Since the poet kept his anger within himself and had his own fear and tears, his anger kept growing every day.

43. Describe Margie's mechanical teacher and her classroom in your own words.

  • Tommy found the book on 17 May 2157. It was a very old book. The pages, were yellow and crinkly, and it was awfully funny to read the words that stood still instead of moving the way they were supposed to, on a screen. The mechanical teacher had been giving her test after test in geography and she had been doing worse and worse until her mother had shaken her head sorrowfully and sent for the county inspector.

IV.Activity

1.Write a letter to your friend telling about how your house was burgled when your family was away on a holiday

36, Gandhi Road

Chennai – 45

04 August 2018

Dear Ramesh,

How are you? I feel sad to inform you that my house was burgled last week when I was on a holiday. Burglars might have known from the accumulated newspaper pile that I had gone away. When I came back last Sunday, I found the back-door lock broken. I could have forgotten to bolt the back-door from inside and they should have entered through it. My room was ransacked. They took my laptop and other valuables. I must have deposited the jewellery in a bank locker to avoid this loss. I should have informed my neighbours about my week-long trip. Well, I have registered an FIR with the police. They are investigating the case. They have assured that I would get my jewels back. The burglars will be caught very soon. Convey my regards to all at home.

Yours lovingly,

Murali


Address on the envelope :

Mr. Ramesh,

50, Bharathiyar Street,

Namakkal.
