FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

1. The author talks about two people who were conscious of the variations among them and people who tried to attach these differences. Are you able to identify such people within the text?

The person who was conscious of these differences was the young teacher who came to teach Kalam’s class in the fifth standard. He ordered Kalam to take a seat on the last bench as he belonged to a lower caste. Sivasubramania Iyer’s wife, who was also his teacher, was a conservative Hindu Brahmin. She denied to serve him food as she doubted his presence would render the kitchen impure. The people that connected these differences were Lakshmana Sastry, Ramanadha Sastry’s father and Sivasubramania Iyer. The priest of the Rameswaram temple was Sastry. He scolded the young teacher and asked him to apologise for sowing the seeds of spiritual discrimination into the innocent minds of the youngsters. Finally, Sivasubramania Iyer gave food to Kalam and sat alongside him to eat which mended his wife.

2. What did Kalam’s father say about Kalam’s decision of leaving Rameshwaram? What did his words imply?

Kalam's father said that he knew Abdul had to go away from home as he had to fulfil his dreams. He gave the instance of the Seagull bird which flies endlessly over long distances and doesn't have a nest too. Kalam's father pacified Kalam's mother by quoting a couple of lines from the poem 'Your children' by Khalil Gibran. He said that her children weren't her possession but were ‘life's desire for itself’. She shouldn't impose her thoughts on them but should allow them to fulfil their thoughts. He wanted him to pursue higher studies allowing him to travel to Ramanathapuram.
