Central Idea of the Poem

परीक्षा में Poetry भाग की किन्हीं भी दो Poems के नाम दिए जाते हैं, जिनमें से किसी एक Poem का Central Idea लिखना होता है । ( इसके लिए 3 अंक निर्धारित हैं। )

‘Amanda’ is a poem about child psychology. The poem tells us about a little girl, Amanda. She is constantly and continuously being scolded most probably by her mother. But, Amanda is lost in her own world. The frequent interference make her very unhappy. She wants freedom from all restrictions and dreams to lead a life of a mermaid in the emerald sea where she is the only inhabitant. She feels that an orphan has more freedom than her. The little girl does not pay attention to what her mother is saying. The poem then points that parents must give some freedom to growing children. Constant scolding may adversely affect a child’s development.

कविता ‘अमाण्डा’ बाल मनोविज्ञान के विषय में है। यह कविता हमें एक छोटी बच्ची ‘अमाण्डा’ के बारे में बताती है। वह हमेशा एवं निरन्तर रूप से सम्भवतः उसकी माँ से डाँट खाती रहती है। किन्तु, अमाण्डा स्वयं की दुनिया में खोई हुई है । यह बार-बार होने वाली दखलंदाजी उसे बहुत नाखुश कर देती है। वह सभी पाबन्दियों से मुक्ति चाहती है तथा एक जलपरी के समान जीवन जीने का स्वप्न देखती है, जहाँ केवल वह चमकीले हरे समुद्र की निवासी हो। वह यह महसूस करती है कि एक अनाथ बच्चे के पास उस से ज्यादा आजादी है। यह छोटी बच्ची अपनी माँ द्वारा कही गई बातों पर ध्यान नहीं देती है, कविता फिर यह तर्क देती है कि अभिभावकों को बड़े होते बच्चों को निश्चित रूप से थोड़ी आजादी देनी ही चाहिए। लगातार डाँट लगाना सम्भवतः बच्चे के विकास पर प्रतिकूल प्रभाव डालता है।

Short Answer Type Questions

परीक्षा में Poetry के पाठों से 1 Short Answer Type Question पूछा जाएगा। इसके लिए 3 अंक निर्धारित है।

Q1. Justify the title of the poem ‘Amanda’. कविता के शीर्षक ‘Amanda’ को उचित सिद्ध कीजिए

Ans. The title of the poem ‘Amanda’ is very appropriate. The poem is about a little girl, Amanda who is constantly scolded by her mother. Throughout the poem, the focus is on Amanda and her world of imagination. In this world, she lives a free and peaceful life without any interruptions.

Q2. Why does Amanda wish to be a mermaid, an orphan, or Rapunzel? अमाण्डा जलपरी या एक अनाथ और रेप्यूनजल बनने की कामना क्यों करती है?

Ans. Amanda wishes to be a mermaid, an orphan and Rapunzel to live a life of freedom. She is constantly scolded by her mother. So, she escapes into her own world of imagination wherein she lives a peaceful life, all alone. As a mermaid she would be the sole resident of a beautiful sea and as an orphan, she would enjoy freedom. Finally, as Rapunzel she would live a carefree life.

Q3. Why does Amanda seem moody most of the time? अमाण्डा अधिक समय उदासीन क्यों लगती है?

Ans. Amanda seems moody most of the time because she is so involved in her world of imagination that she does not pay attention to her mother. Amanda often escapes from reality into her world of fantasy to get away from the continuous scoldings. Her day dreaming makes her look moody and uninterested.

Q4. Do you think it is Amanda’s fault in the poem? Justify your answer. आपको लगता है कि कविता में अमाण्डा की गलती है? अपने उत्तर को उचित सिद्ध कीजिए ।

Ans. No, Amanda is not at fault. In the poem, Amanda is constantly instructed and scolded by her mother. Her mother restricts her freedom. Amanda desires the peace and freedom which is not granted to her. So, she escapes into her own world where she enjoys the calmness.

Q5. Does Amanda’s mother have a nagging behaviour. Justify your answer. क्या अमाण्डा की माता का व्यवहार अवगुण दुढ़ने वाला है? अपने उत्तर को तर्कसंगत सिद्ध कीजिए ।

Ans. Amanda’s mother has a nagging behaviour. She is always instructing Amanda and finding faults within her. Her mother constantly tell her the do’s and don’ts. Such a nagging behaviour affects

Amanda who feels that her freedom is restricted. Amanda’s mothers responsibility to instill (develop) good manners in the child makes Amanda retreat (escape) into her imagination where she seeks peace

and freedom.

Q6. Would you call Amanda a disrespectful child? Provide one reason to justify your opinion. क्या आप अमाण्डा को असभ्य बच्चा बुलाएगें। अपने विचार को उचित सिद्ध करने के लिए एक कारण दिजिए।

Ans. Yes, we can call Amanda a disrespectful child because she does not respond to her parent’s repeated instructions. She is lost in her imagination and does not even look towards her mother when she is yelling at her.
