1. Why Kartik Poramanik is an inspiration for us?
I think Kartik Poramanik is an inspiration for us. Because he is a nature lover by heart. Being inspired by his father he started planting trees from his boyhood. Kartik had a passion of planting trees at a very large scale so that man and nature can be benefited from these trees. Kartik himself felt very pain when saw that people could not find any shelter in the shade of a tree in the midst of work when they get tired. With the idea that the shade of a tree could alleviate the suffering of tired people, he started planting trees in bazar, on the side of the road, next to the school. He would bear all the expenses by himself. Kartik usually remain busy during day time that is why sometimes he would water the trees at night so people thought he became mad. Kartik unselfishly plants trees for the benefit of the people. He used to take care of the trees himself. Kartik used to plant trees but did not expect fruits or other benefits. So I think Kartik Poramanik is the inspiration in the work for the present young generation and youth society.
2. Why do you think that the title is appropriate for the story ‘The Truthful Dove’?
I think the title is appropriate for the story because this passage deals with the truthfulness of the dove. In the story we see that the dove and bat were two friends. For certain reasons they took shelter to an owl. The bat was greedy. So he started to praise the owl falsely for getting more food. But the dove was not greedy, he was honest and truthful. He did not praise the owl falsely. By reading this passage we came to know that the truthfulness is always rewarded and falsehood never goes unpunished. Because of truthfulness the dove has gained a place at the heart of the poets. It has earned the status of being a source of passion for love by the poets as long as the world lasts to rhyme with ‘Love’. The two birds bat and owl got punishment for their ill-doing. Actually they were flatterer and insincere. On the other hand the dove gained reward for its being realistic and truthful. So we can say the title of the story ‘The Truthful Dove’ is appropriate and admirable.
3. A paragraph about how we can help the gypsy children with learning.
River gypsies are an ethnic group of people in Bangladesh. They are also locally known as ‘Bedey’ who roam from one place to another. Usually they lead a nomadic life. They are a community of underprivileged. They are deprived of the basic human needs specially education. The only means of their life is the boat. As they do not live in main land that is why an NGO runs a boat school in my area. So under the supervision of that school I along with some of my friends try to teach the gypsy children how to read and write because I think besides the government and NGO the educated young generation should come forward to educate them. We go to the gypsy family and try to make them understand about the importance of education and we could bring some of their children to school. We have made some plans for them. We have decided that we will provide them with basic textbooks as well as other education materials without any cost. At first you want to teach them the basic of English, mathematics, computer and other technologies. We can also teach them about morals and humanity. Besides we will make them aware about health, sanitation and nutrition. They deserve the chance to prepare them for living with mainstream society. We cannot but help them to ensure a better, happier and healthier life.
