Ans: NCERT Class 8 English Honeydew Chapter 1 is The Best Christmas Present in the World by Michael Morpurgo. The author wants to tell that no matter who wins or who loses, war is futile, destructive and inhumane. It only brings sadness, anxiety and trauma to the people and the world. One should try to resolve their tussles with peace so that harmony exists and mankind doesn't lose faith in humanity. Irrelevant of our country, religion, race, we all are humans and war has never ended in anything good for any human.
