His First Flight Q&A, Very Short Questions

1. Why was the young seagull afraid to fly? Do you think all young birds are afraid to make their first flight, or are some birds more timid than others? Do you think that even a human child gets a challenge to take his first steps? (V. Imp.)

2. “The sight of food drove him mad.” What does this reveal? What compelled the young seagull to finally fly?

3. “They were going to him, calling the shrine.” Why did Seagal’s father and mother threaten him and tell him to fly away?

His First Flight Q&A, Answer

1. The young seagull was afraid to fly. When he tried to flap his wings, fear caught him. I think all birds are afraid to fly for the first time. Secondly, some birds are more timid than others. I think a human child also has difficulties taking the first step. His shaking legs and weak movements show him.

2 . This suggests that food initially gave flight to seagull risk. Control over the flying fear finally blew him.

3 . Seagal’s father and mother made him fly. This was because if he did not fly, he would have died.

4 . Yes, I had a similar experience. My parents made me ride a bicycle. They made me sit on its saddle. Then they gently pushed him. I was afraid that if they let me go alone, I would fall down. I was scared in this way or before. But courage and confidence came to me. I controlled the bicycle. (For discussion in groups)

5 . My success was not guaranteed. What was important was that I should try. Trying to do things, not results – success or failure. If one is afraid of failure and takes no action, it fails. It is trying that matters the most. Writing

His First Flight Q&A, WRITING

His First Flight Q&A, Answer

When I learned how to swim

I remember what problems I faced when I learnt swimming. I feared the village pond greatly. I felt like running off the scene. But when I saw children of my age swimming, I felt to be like them. I was seven then. So one day I descended in the pool in the presence of my father. He held me with my back. The water was four or five feet deep. Fear gripped me. But somehow I moved my hands and legs just around my father. I saw that I could swim. But very soon I caught my father. He asked me to do that again. I did. But another boy hit me from below. I was scared that it could be a grave danger. But my friend popped out his head. I felt relieved. Other children laughed at my inability to swim then. But very soon I began swimming after practising it again and again.
