Long Answer questions (120-150 words)

Answer: Wanda is a poor girl. She always wore one dress in the school. In order to avoid embarrassment, Wanda tells that she has hundred dresses. They laugh at her answer. This becomes a game for them. But Wanda considers this a daily torture.

In real life we come across such situations. Students from rich family make fun of poor students. Some students become part of this just to avoid embarrassment for themselves.

Social inequality prevails everywhere in the society. Parents should teach their kids about human values. Teachers should support equality in schools. Better aspects of being a good friend should be taught. Various competitions should be organized in school to bring about talent of every student. Thereby a message can be given that every student is not good at everything but every student is good at something or the other.

Such initiatives would help strengthen human values, mutual respect and companionship among students.

 

Answer: Maddie was herself a poor girl. She could easily understand difficulties of Wanda. She could also empathize with Wanda. But she did not dare to lose friendship of Peggy. Nor she wanted to become the next target of her friends.

Being a friend has a lot deeper meaning than merely being a companion. A real friend is one who is able to identify strength and weakness of his friend. He also has the courage to politely point out area of improvement and stop his friend taking a wrong direction. It may require several discussions before one realizes his wrong doings.

Friendship is a matter of mutual respect. Friends do not bully each other. Thus fear of losing friendship because of difference of opinion is ill founded. A healthy discussion is of mutual benefit.

Such values should be taught by parents at home and teachers in the school.
