    Expand the ideas of ‘Friends – a real treasure ’. (A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed.)

    Hints: Explain the concept (introduction), give example (related story) , illustrated the idea and give moral. 

    Ans‘Friends – a real treasure.

              This proverb means a friend who stands by us in our risk or difficult condition. Or we can say: if someone supports you, in such conditions that’s a real friend. In our life, we have so many friends. But all friends are not true. The following story proves it. 

         Once upon a time, two friends had great love for each other and promised to help each other, in the hour of need. They were passing through a deep forest, suddenly a bear came in front of them. One of them climbed a tree, leaving his friend alone.

        The other friend was unable to climb the tree, he laid on the ground and held his breath pretending to be dead. The bear came up to him and smelt him. Found him a dead, the bear left the place. Then the other friend came down and asked, “What did the bear say to you?” The friend replied that the bear warned me not to trust someone who leaves you in danger.’

          We have heard many stories of true friendships such as friendship of Krishna and Sudama, Duryodhana and Karna, etc. Such friends were the real treasure of life.        

           It’s important to know the difference between good and bad friends. A true friend sticks by you through all situations, while a selfish friend sticks by you only for his benefits who leaves you in your hardship. Trust is earned, and real friends earn it. so “The true friends are priceless.

    Expand the ideas of proverb. ‘A little learning is a dangerous thing.’

    [Hints: Explain the concept (introduction), give example (related story) , illustrated the idea and give moral.]

    Ans: ‘A little learning is a dangerous thing.’

                The phrase, ‘A little learning is a dangerous thing’. we have experienced, in the period of Corona, we have watched videos on the social Medias about how to protect us from the corona, but most of the information misguided us due to which many people did not take proper medical guidance and lost their lives. 

             Let’s see a story which will clear our idea; one day, a camel entered the melon field and stated eating melons. By chance, a melon got jammed in the camel’s throat. The animal began to make noise. When the owner of the camel saw it, he understood the matter at once. He got a blanket and wrapped it around the neck of the camel and hit it hard with a wooden mallet. The melon broke and the camel swallowed it easily.

            A man who came late there saw this half process. He thought it was a treatment for a goiter. In the next village, he pretended to be a doctor who could cure goiters. The villagers brought an elderly woman to him for treatment. The man asked for a blanket and a mallet, just like he had seen before. He wrapped the blanket around the woman’s neck and hit her hard with the mallet, thinking it would help her. Unfortunately with that forceful blow, the woman passed away instantly. The villagers caught the quack doctor and handed over the police. Finally he was sent to prison for his little knowledge.

        Listening to the advice of someone who is less educated can lead to wrong choices in life. It gives us a moral that A Little Knowledge is Dangerous Thing

    Expand the ideas of proverb, “A book cannot be judged by its cover”.

    [Hints: Explain the concept (introduction), give example (related story) , illustrated the idea and give moral.]

                   The proverb, “A book cannot be judged by its cover explains that a book with a very attractive cover may not have readable material inside. On the other hand, a book with a very dull cover may be very interesting. This is true of everything in life. or one can say what we see is not true.

     Let’s see a story which will clear our idea; a doctor entered the hospital in a hurry for an urgent surgery of a boy. The boy’s father was waiting in the hall for the doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”

     The doctor smiled & said: “I am sorry, I wasn’t in the hospital, but I came as fast as I received the call…… And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work.”

      “Calm down?! If your own son dies now, what will you do?” said the father angrily. The doctor smiled, changed his clothes and went into the operation theater. After some time, the doctor came out happily,

           “Thank goodness! Your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply, he absolutely ran away from there.

             “Why is he so arrogant? He couldn’t wait some minutes so that I ask about my son.” said the father. The nurse answered, with the tears “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now after saving your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.” The father had no words to speak.

                  Even when we judge people we should not do so by their looks.  So, it is only fair to say that all that what we see is not true.


    Extra point :

     A famous detective, Sherlock Holmes says in the novel “the sign of four,” “It is of the first importance, not to allow your judgment to be biased by personal qualities.  He further says to Dr. Watson. “I assure you that the most winning woman I ever knew was hanged for poisoning three little children for their insurance – money and the most repellant (horrible) man   of   my acquaintance (familiar) is a philanthropist (helper) who has spent nearly a quarter of a million upon the London poor.”

    Expand the ideas of proverb. ‘Manners Maketh Man’.

    [Hints : Explain the concept (introduction), give example (related story) , illustrated the idea and give moral.]

    The proverb ‘Manners maketh man’ means that politeness and good manners are essential to humanity. Polite words like please and thank shows courtesy. When you pass this courtesy to others, it becomes a circle. We have seen it in our lesson, “On saying please.” Let’s see the importance of the words please and thank you.

    There was once a peaceful King, who wanted that without punishing his people, they should obey him. He made an announcement to give me a suggestion for it. A young man heard the announcement and went to the king with the solution. The King was very happy. The young man gave him two small pieces of paper with colourful writing on them and said “These are the spells (magic) that I have prepared for you. Use the first word, before saying work which you want your subjects to do, and use the second word, when they have done it. Everyone was curious to hear the spells.  One day a servant came to him carrying a letter. The King said to him, -“Please, Ramsingh , come here.”

           Ramsingh, surprised, because he had never heard him to say ‘please’ before. The King took the letter and said, -“Thank you, Ramsingh, you may go now.” And the servant left, smiling. The king started to use it with every one and they started to follow the king. It had worked! And all   remained under the King’s power happily. Really it was the effect of politeness.

             The teaching of manners is very necessary since the childhood. The background of most criminals also reveals an unhappy and sad childhood, that affects their character, and their manners in future.
