Talk about it

1. Bholi’s teacher helped her overcome social barriers by encouraging and motivating her. How do you think you can contribute to wards changing the social attitudes illustrated in this story?

Ans: We can change social attitudes with the help of spreading education. The light of education drives away the darkness of superstition and many other social injustice. Ignorance is the cause of social barriers and education can remove ignorance.

2. Should girls be aware of their rights, and assert them? Should girls and boys have the same rights, duties and privileges? What are some of the ways in which society treats them differently? When we speak of ‘human rights’, do we differentiate between girls’ rights and boys ‘ rights?

Ans: In fact, girls should be aware of their rights and assert them. They should also be aware of their duties.

There should be some difference in case of rights, duties and privileges for boys and girls. But discrimination should not be made. But society treats girls inferior to boys.

In case of ‘human rights’ we can make no difference.

3. Do you think the characters in the story were speaking to each other in English? In fact, in which language were they speaking? (you can get clues from the names of the persons and the non-English words used in the story)
