About the poem :-

In this poem William Shakespeare has compared this entire world to a stage on which acts of drama are performed. He has compared the people of this world to the actors of drama. Just like the actors who once finish performing their respective acts, have to quit, all the people of this world eventually die after going through 7 stages of their lives.

The first stage of a man’s life is of an infant. This is the phase of the human’s life in which he takes birth. Once he come out of his mother’s womb, he is in the arms of a nurse. He cries a lot and pukes in her arms.

The second stage of a man’s life is of a whining school boy. In this stage his parents decide to send him to school so that he starts his studies. The boy is very unwilling to go to school but his parents still force him to go there. He cries while going on his way to school. He is going very slowly. Writer has used a simile ‘ creeping like snail ‘ to express how slow he’s walking.

The third stage of a man’s life is of a lover boy. In this stage the boys finally begins to love some girl or woman. Say if the boy proposes the girl and she denies his proposal or he gets rejected, or say even if girl accepts his proposal and her parents forbid him from meeting her then the boy becomes really depressed. The suffering of separation causes him tremendous pain. He keeps remembering his beloved and writes an entire sad song thinking of her.

The fourth stage of a man’s life is of a soldier. Here, the word ‘soldier’ doesn’t necessarily means the soldier who fights on the border and protects his nation. It means that the man has finally become somebody who fights in order to defend what’s precious to him. It can be his pride, his loved ones, the ones whom he loves, the ones who respect him and the ones whom he respects. In this stage the man starts seeing big dreams and starts taking strange oaths in order to make them come true. He starts to grow beards which is the sign of his manliness. He becomes very intolerable and very quick to pick up fights with others to protect or maintain his reputation even when he is cornered.

The fifth stage of a man’s life is that of a judge. Here, the word ‘judge’ does not necessarily means the judge of the court. It means that the man has finally become wise and knowledgable and has a really good ability to tell what is right and what is wrong. He is middle-aged, looks healthy and has seriousness in his eyes. He has seen or been in a lot of difficult situations. He shares is experiences and tells other what to do and what not to do.

The sixth stage of a man’s life is that of an old man. In this stage, the middle-aged healthy man turns into lean and thin old man. His manly voice becomes childish and when he speaks, slightly whistling sound comes out. He feels insecure so he keeps most of his things very close to him.

The final stage of a man’s life is that of second childishness of the old man. The writer has termed this stage ‘mere oblivion’ which means that the old man is in the state in which he has no idea of what’s going on around him. All his teeth are gone. He has lost his eyesight so he can’t see well. He can’t taste food. In this stage the man has lost everything or everyone he had. Basically writer wants to say that some of the people who the old man loved in past are dead and rest of them have turned their backs against the old man. So he’s left with nothing and is waiting for his death.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME

Today is 17th of November 2018 and I am 19 years old now. Even though it’s my birthday today somehow it doesn’t excite me at allπŸ˜’πŸ˜’πŸ˜’. When I was kid, my birthday used to be celebrated but now it doesn’t happen. There is no one to talk to and share my true feelings with. Of course you can’t share you feelings with someone who has no value or respect for it. It’s feels I am very alone. Well, I have never been a person who likes to be in group and have a lot of long term good friends but still it hurts not to have someone around who make you happy when you are depressed or not feeling well😞😞😞. There are some specific people with whom I like to spend some time. Some of them are my brothers and some of my childhood friends but I am not very Frank to them. So I can’t share everything that I feel. Also, I can’t expect anyone to sit with me and listen to all of the nonsense stuffs that I have to say. So there’s that.

I love to do certain things to keep myself happy.

Playing Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle :- I have been playing this game for pretty much 8 or 9 months and I absolutely love it. It’s a gatcha game so sometimes when I get shafted on my multi-summons then I stop playing it for a while but in few days I do start playing it again.

Composing poems :- Actually I am not much of a writer πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…. If you read my poems then y’all notice that some of my poems are good and rest of them are not. The ones which are good are composed from my random thoughts on little things that I see or try to imagine. And the poem which seem not very good are the one which I decided to write and I had to look for some words to match the rhyming scheme. πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Watching animes :- I love certain animes for example Dragon Ball, Eon Kid and Bakugan etc. So I watch them. It’s a lot of fun to do so.

These are the things which help me get over my depressions. There are some other things I do but if I mentioned them here and somebody from my family and some teachers read it then they will start thinking that I’m true evil.πŸ˜ˆπŸ‘ΏπŸ‘ΉπŸ‘»πŸ’€πŸ‘Ί

I will not write anything about my study here in this post because there is nothing to write about it in my mind.πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

Thanks for reading this post. I hope you keep supporting this website.

The Earth (Summary)

In a village there lived an old man named Johnson, his wife and his son named Benjy. Johnson had some land, a two wheeled cart, a mare and some tools for farming. Benjy was a simple boy and very different from other boys. One day Johnson took him to a hospital for treatment. The doctor advised him to give Benjy some hens. Johnson gave Benjy 12 hens and he also made a wire coop to keep hens. Benjy learnt everything about hens and took care of them. The hens started laying eggs. He sold eggs door by door and gave the earnings to his mother. His mother told him that the money that he is earning will be deposited in the bank and will be rightfully his when he turns 21 years old. Slowly the number of hens increased and number of eggs increased as well. Now, Benjy started to use wheel-truck to take eggs to market and the amount earned increased and it was directly deposited to the bank.

One time with a sequal of unfortunate things happening, the crops of Johnson were destroyed. The eggs given by hens kept increasing further and so Benjy started to use mare and cart to tansport the eggs.

Now, Benjy finally turned 21 years old. His mother gave him the passbook of his bank account in which his total earning was deposited. He saw the amount which was 230 pounds, closed the passbook and kept it in his pocket andleft. This made his parents hurt. One day they asked to Benjy what he was going to do with the money and Benjy replied that he was going to buy 4 acres of land from Mr. Whitestone. The parents became happy after hearing that Benjy is going to use money for constructive purpose. The land that Johnson had was not his property, it benlonged to a person named Sanders and he hand rented it Johnson. Sanders told Johnson that the land was on sale because people want building to live and if he wanted the land for himself then he will have to pay for it. Johnson wanted to buy land but he had no money. Later Sanders told Johnson that the land was bought by Benjy. Johnson became very happy to hear that the land or ‘the earth’ was finally his. Meanwhile, Benjy kept few servants to take care of hens because his business of hens grew larger. One day he struck a maid whose name was Florence and she was so ugly but Benjy was in love in her at the very first sight. He told his parents the was going to marry that girl. Parents disliked florence but Benjy married her.

Now things started changing. Benjy started taking control of the house. He took the room of his parents and sent them to live in the back room. After few days, he told his parents to go and eat in the kitchen and after few more days he shouts at his parents and tells then to get out of the house. He sits in his van and drives them far away for the house and leaves them on the road.

In the beginning Johnson had the earth and now he had nothing.

I Love You, You Love Me

I love you,

You love me.

Me saying this,

This that we,

We are made,

Made for each other.

Other people might say,

Say that I’m a lier.

Lier I am not,

Not at all.

All those people,

People who say,

Say such things, don’t want us,

Us to get along, but

But we will live together because,

Because, I love you,

You love me.

The Frog And The Nightingale ( Summary)

The poem ” The Frog and the Nightingale ” has been written by Vikram Seth. He is an Indian poet who likes to write about animals. He generally writes poems to aware the humans to have confidence in their own quality or art and not to lose their confidence in influence of cunning people.

In this poem, there are two main characters. The first one is the Frog 🐸 and the second one is Nightingale.

Frog is fond of singing and wants to be a singer. So, he used to sing songs daily. But his voice was annoying therefore whenever he started to sing, all of the people(animals) around him used to get disturbed.

One day when the frog was practicing to sing, a nightingale came and started to sing. To listen her melodious song, a lot of people (animals) gathered over there. When the nightingale finished her singing and the audience left, the frog said to nightingale that her song was good but it was lacking something but he could help her to rectify her mistakes or lackings. The nightingale was very happy that their was someone who made critic about her song and now wants to help her improve. She agreed to learn singing from frog. The frog started to teach her art of singing but his real aim was to get rid of her. He made her sing continuously even in the rain and while practicing the song, one of the vien of nightingale burst and she died.

In this poem, poet Vikram Seth has made a good collection of figure of speech. Example :- Irony and alliteration, etc.
