Class 11 English Solutions


Answer the following questions.

a. Why didn’t the mother recognise her son Gopi?

Answer 👉 The mother did not recognize her son Gopi because she had lost her memory and suffered from dementia.

b. Why is the sister living with her mother?

Answer 👉  The sister is living with her mother to take care of her and provide her with proper care and support.

c. What is the sister’s attitude towards her brother?

Answer 👉 The sister's attitude towards her brother is not specified in the given information.

d. Does the son love his mother very much? How do you know that?

Answer 👉  It is not specified in the given information whether Gopi loves his mother very much or not.

e. What does the mother actually need: a blanket or the warmth of her son’s love?

Answer 👉 The mother actually needs the warmth of her son's love. This is because, even though she was given a blanket to keep herself warm, she was still not comforted and asked for her son. This suggests that the love and affection of her son is more important to her than just physical warmth from a blanket.

f. What does the phrase the ‘tattered blanket’ mean? Is it only the blanket that is tattered?

Answer 👉 The phrase "the tattered blanket" refers to the physical condition of the blanket that the mother is holding, which is old and worn. However, it may also symbolize the mother's emotional state and the way she is clinging to the past, despite the changes that have taken place in her life.

g. The son says, ‘Amma can't remember who I am’. Do you think that he remembered his mother? Why didn’t he answer when his sister asked, ‘Do you remember your Amma?’

Answer 👉  It is implied that the son does remember his mother, as he refers to her as "Amma". He may not have answered his sister's question about whether he remembers his mother because he is feeling sad or overwhelmed by the situation, or because he is trying to protect his mother's feelings. It is not stated explicitly why he didn't answer the question.

Critical thinking

a. What can be the expectations of the parents from their offspring at the old age?

Answer 👉 The expectations of parents from their offspring at old age can vary depending on the family dynamics, cultural values, and personal beliefs. However, some common expectations include having the children provide emotional and financial support, respect, and companionship. In many cases, older parents might also expect to be taken care of if they are unable to live independently.

b. Some children who live in a distance tend to be indifferent to the feelings of their parents. Why do you think they are like that? Discuss.

Answer 👉  Children who live at a distance from their parents may be indifferent to their feelings for various reasons. Some may have busy lifestyles, work commitments, or family responsibilities that make it difficult for them to stay connected with their parents. Others might have developed feelings of resentment or anger towards their parents for various reasons, leading to a lack of emotional connection. In some cases, children may also be unaware of their parents' needs or feelings due to limited communication.

c. A mother's love is everlasting and indispensable. Justify.

Answer 👉  A mother's love is indeed everlasting and indispensable. The bond between a mother and her child is one of the strongest and most profound in the world, and it often lasts a lifetime. Mothers have a unique ability to provide unconditional love, support, and comfort to their children, no matter what their age or circumstances. This love is often characterized by selflessness, sacrifice, and a deep concern for the well-being of their children. In many ways, a mother's love can serve as a source of comfort, security, and stability for a child throughout their entire life.


Our country is put on lockdown for nearly three months due to COVID-19 pandemic. Following is an example of a diary entry about the feelings and experiences of a person who is locked up at home.

Answer 👉  

Day 1 of Lockdown:

I never would have thought that I would be locked up in my own home for months, but here I am. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken over the world and Nepal is no exception. Today marks the beginning of a three-month lockdown. I feel a mix of emotions - fear, frustration, and sadness. I am worried about my health, my family's health, and the health of my community. I am frustrated that I can't go about my daily routine or see my friends and family. And I am sad that this is the reality we are living in.

But, I am also trying to see the positive side. I have more time to read, write, and pursue hobbies I never had the time for before. I am grateful for technology that allows me to stay connected with my loved ones, even if it's just through a screen. And most of all, I am grateful for the privilege of having a roof over my head and food on the table during these trying times.

Day 30 of Lockdown:

I can't believe it's already been a month since the lockdown began. Time seems to have slowed down, yet it feels like it's flying by at the same time. I have fallen into a routine, and it's both comforting and monotonous. I wake up, work from home, exercise, read, cook, and then go to bed. Repeat. I am trying my best to stay positive, but some days are harder than others.

The fear of getting sick is ever-present, and I find myself constantly washing my hands and sanitizing everything. I miss going outside and feeling the sun on my skin. I miss going to the store and seeing the faces of people I know. I miss hugging my loved ones.

But, I know that this is temporary. I remind myself that the sacrifices we are making now will help bring an end to this pandemic sooner. And when this is all over, I will appreciate the simple things in life even more.

Day 90 of Lockdown:

Today marks the end of the lockdown. I can't believe it's finally over. It feels surreal. I am both excited and nervous to venture outside again. I have been cooped up for so long that I'm not sure how to act in public anymore.

Looking back, this experience has taught me so much. I have learned to be more patient, more grateful, and more appreciative of the little things in life. I have learned to slow down and enjoy the present moment. And most of all, I have learned the importance of good health and the love of family and friends.

I am grateful for this experience, as difficult as it was. And I am looking forward to a bright and healthy future.
