·         I don’t think I’ll mind being deaf for a day­–at least not much.
·         But being blind is so frightening.
·         Only you must tell me about things.
·         Let’s go for a little walk.
·         The other bad days can’t be half as bad as this.
Ans. The paragraph is as under:
Let’s go for a little walk. Only you must tell me about things. I shall be so glad when today is over. The other bad days can’t be half as bad as this. Having a leg tied up and hopping about on a crutch is almost fun, I guess. I don’t think I’ll mind being deaf for a day­–at least not much. But being blind is so frightening.
B. Answer the following questions:
Q1. Why do you think the writer visited Miss Beam’s school?
Ans. The writer had a great deal about Miss Beam’s school, so he went to see in what way Miss Beam’s school is different from other schools.
Q2. What was the ‘game’ that every child in the school had to play?
Ans. Every child had to play the game of misfortune which was way of acting as a blind on blind day, a lame on lame day, deaf on deaf day, injured on injured day and dumb on dumb day.
Q3. “Each term every child has one blind day, one lame day….” Complete the line. Which day was the hardest? Why was it hardest?
Ans. Each term every child has one blind day, one lame day, one deaf day, one injured day and one dumb day. The blind day seems to be hardest as per the writer because it is very hard to walk when eyes are bandaged and one needs help with everything.
Q4. What was the purpose of these special days?
Ans. The purpose of these special days was to realise the children about the misfortune of disabled children and also make them share their joys with them so that they would feel that they are not among the misfortune children.
