Question: Why was the girl tied to a chair in Memories of Childhood? [CBSE SQP 2008]

Answer: The girl, Zitkala-Sa was refusing to accept the school’s decision to shingle the hair of all girls. According to her traditions and customs, a girl’s long hair was shingled only when captured by the enemy, in mourning or for cowards. She felt insulted and hid. She was finally caught and forcefully tied to a chair and her long hair was chopped off.
