B.3.Complete the central idea of the poem by filling in only one word.

Ans- The poet agrees that one faces a lot of trouble and worries in life. There also are burdens which bend people double with their weight but in spite of all this one must keep on working and pursuing towards one’s goal.

He further says that everyone likes to remain idle and wait for the favourable time but one must always be ready to fight if need be.

My Dear Surbhi

I have gone through your letter and came to know that nowadays, you are facing a lot of problems because of your mother’s illness. You are a brave girl and these problems are temporary and will be sorted out soon.

However, you are trying your best to cope with the situation but I think your mother will get proper care in a hospital. So you should admit her for better care and treatment.

You say that you don’t get time to study. For this, I would advise you to keep extra domestic help and go for better time management. You can also encourage your family members to perform their works to themselves. You can also drop some unnecessary works until your mother gets well.

I hope that the above tips will certainly help you to deal with the problems at your home and you will get some time to study now.

Your friend
