Teachers always advise their students to dream big. Yet, the same teachers in your classrooms find fault with Sophie when she dreams. What is wrong with Sophie’s dreams?

Question: Teachers always advise their students to dream big. Yet, the same teachers in your classrooms find fault with Sophie when she dreams. What is wrong with Sophie’s dreams? [CBSE Delhi 2016]

Answer: It is good to dream but one needs to be practical too. Sophie belonged to a mediocre family she aspired to own a boutique, though she had no means or money to fulfil her dreams. After school, she was likely to work in a biscuit factory. Her dreams are unrealistic. She loves to indulge herself without even thinking of how to achieve it. In her heart of hearts, she knows that her dreams have little possibility of coming true and are only a product of adult fantasizing. She also dreams dates Danny Casey, an Irish football player. She gets so pulled into her date story told to her brother Geoff that she was supposed to meet Danny. Irrespective of all this Sophie fantasizes about her hero, unperturbed. Dreaming within limits is good. Unless one is impossibly ambitious, hardworking, and have loads of patience and perseverance, such dreams are best kept under lock and key unless one likes to be disappointed.

Draw a character sketch of the old General in the lesson, ‘The Enemy’

Question:  Draw a character sketch of the old General in the lesson, ‘The Enemy’.  [CBSE (AI) 2011] Answer:  General Takima, being the head of the Japanese army, was more concerned  about himself than the general people of his country. Dr Sadao was a surgeon. He  could be a boon for the wounded soldiers during the world war. But the General asked  him to stay back for himself only because he may require an operation any time. Thus,  he was a selfish man. It was said that he used to hit his wife. But he was a kind man  also. Though the General promised to get the POW killed he desisted from his plan.  It is also hoped that he forgot to send the assassins to wipe out the American soldier or  he was concerned with the security of the doctor and his family as the public knowledge  of POW could harm them. For the General, it was very important that no harm comes to  his surgeon. More Question According to Zitkala-Sa what does ‘eating by the formula’ mean? How did Zitkala-Sa’s first da
