Question 5. What do the last four lines of the poem mean to you?
Solution : In the last four lines, the poet inspires us to face the wind, which symbolises the hardships of our lives, courageously. He tells us that the wind can only extinguish the weak fires; it intensifies the stronger ones. Similarly, adversities deter the weak-hearted but make stronger those who have unfaltering will. In such a case, befriending the wind or the hardships of life makes it easier for us to face them.
Question 6. How does the poet speak to the wind — in anger or with humour? You must also have seen or heard of the wind “crumbling lives”. What is your response to this? Is it like the poet’s?
The poet speaks to the wind with anger.
Yes, strong winds are known to cause plenty of damage and destruction to both life and property.
Storms, cyclones, gales and strong winds cause havoc on land. They uproot trees, bring down houses, tear down electric posts and claim lives.
They also cause damage to boats and frighten the poor sailors and fishermen out at sea.
Yet, I do not agree with the poet that the wind only ‘crumbles lives’. The wind is responsible for bringing rain; it cools the land and makes the climate pleasant.
Today, wind energy is harnessed for several useful purposes including turning windmills, wind turbines and generating electricity.
Question 7. The poem you have just read is originally in the Tamil. Do you know any such poems in your language?
Solution : Yes, I have read another poem on wind. It is titled ‘Toofan‘ and was originally written in Hindiby Naresh Aggarwal.
