Speaking and Writing

Question 1

Imagine you are the king. Narrate the incident of your meeting with the hermit. Begin like this: The wise men answered my questions, but I was not satisfied with their answers. One day I decided to go and meet the hermit…..

Man's Stomach

Man's Stomach

Answer:

When the king and the hermit removed the man’s clothing they saw the large wound on the man's stomach. The king washed and covered it with his handkerchief. Since the blood did not stop flowing, he re-dressed the wound until at last it stopped bleeding. When the man felt better, he gave him fresh water to drink. Then, with the help of the hermit, he carried the wounded man into the hut and laid him on the bed. This is how they helped the wounded man.

Question 2:

Imagine you are the hermit. Write briefly the incident of your meeting the king. Begin like this:

One day I was digging in my garden. A man in ordinary clothes came to see me. I knew it was the king….

Answer:

(i) The bearded man was an enemy of the king. The king had put the man's brother to death and had also seized his property. That is why he wanted to take revenge on the king.

(ii) The man knew that the king had gone alone to see the hermit and so had made up his mind to kill him on his way back home. When the king did not return he left his hiding place, but the king's bodyguard recognised him and thus, wounded him. He managed to escape, but would have died if the king had not taken care of him and dressed his wounds. Ironically, he was saved by the very person whose life he wanted to take. That is why he asked for the king's forgiveness.
