COMPARISON BETWEEN MENDING WALL AND GITANJALI BY SAJEENA SHUKKOOR

COMPARISON BETWEEN MENDING WALL AND GITANJALI

Mending Wall and Gitanjali are the two poems which deal with lofty thoughts and sublime themes. Robert Frost’s ‘Mending Wall’ is a dramatic narrative poem composed in blank verse.

It reflects on the man-made barriers prevalent in the contemporary society. Tagore’s Gitanjali in eight lines represent the walls which narrow man’s mind within a shell.

The poem deplores....CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

HOW TO DEAL WITH SLOW LEARNERS ?

 How to teach  the  slow learners (in higher secondary)  English  ?


           When one of my colleagues raised this question,silence was the major response from the teachers who had gathered there from the different parts of the educational district as part of a cluster meeting of the higher secondary teachers on 25/01/2017.
         Perhaps most of the teachers chose to keep quiet as they might have thought the question out of context.We were discussing the new education policy that is being introduced in Kerala from 2016-2021.During the discussion I was pointing out that there are problems in our English classes which should be discussed in the clusters.One such problem is the presence of many students who are slow learners .Students who have no basics of the language and who can't learn in a usual class room .I cited an example of a student who told me after my class that he was so upset with his predicament during my class that he had always been waiting for the class to be over anyhow !
 I requested the group to discuss how we might address this issue.It was then one of the senior  teachers pointed out that the problem is that we , English teachers are not using English in our classrooms and then how can we expect the students to grasp the language.Then she  invited me to speak how I had been dealing with them !

My reply was that one thing I had been trying is that  I would  give the slow learners a chance to respond to a learning challenge providing multiple choices -three or four-  instead of asking a direct question in the class.

When the student comes out with -at least- a part of the sentence, I will accept it or modify it as the situation demanded.

Then  I told the meeting that there could  be other techniques which I would like to hear from my friends.

Then Vinayarajan master came out with suggestion of equipping the teachers with IT skills so that they would be able to teach effectively in a high tech class.Thus the discussion digressed to  the topic of  smart classrooms  , the need for teachers to undergo training in handling the required equipments and planning for such IT enabled classes.

The question I put forward remains unanswered.Hence the discussion continues..........

How can we make  the slow  learners feel interested in an English class ?.Please join in the discussion.

The importance of a lighter approach in life( A brief review of block 5 /12 reader /dhse ) )

 

The importance of a lighter approach in life( A brief review of block 5 /12 reader /dhse ) )
Sporting a sense of humour can make things easy for us.

The play 'Post Early for Christmas' tells us about taking a lighter approach in life. The lady assistant finds herself in big trouble towards the end of the play but she does not show any fear at all. Instead she makes a loud declaration that she is leaving the job because she dislikes it. It is better to be with animals than with the foolish costumers who turn up at the post office with silly remarks .This is a brave attempt to face the unexpected challenges that life throws out.

The poem "This is going to hurt a little bit" is also an attempt to alleviate the pain felt at a dentist's room with the help of a humorous analysis of the situation.

Again the story " Crime and Punishment " points out how badly a teacher  fails to rise to the occasion when a child persists on making mistakes deliberately. A lighter response would have helped him to avoid the predicament of having to dance to the tunes of a kid. He could have asked a different but simple question (Now ,tell me what is 8 multiplied by 3 ! ; perhaps to suit the answer "24"). Or he could have confessed to the parents about the mistake he had committed .

Life is all about having different perspectives and taking a lighter approach while facing a problem.-

A comparison of two poems -The Mad and Stammer,both by Sachidanandan

     The mad are not mad as we are.They go on walking restless because they know some thing better than we do.They know that the earth is boiling.They can meditate and understand the big bang theory.They know more about the origin of the universe and life than we do.That is why they are restless.We think that everything is calm and cool here.Most of us are not conscious of the subtle changes the humanity undergo.We have forgotten the realm of virtues and are poised for destruction and violence. But the mad have wings of fancy in with which they get close to God.The poet places  madness as a plane of   enlightenment where  flies are respected as divine  souls and grasshoppers as green gods.They may seem eccentric or excited but they are innocent, loving -Their love overflows in full moon-and realistic than we are.They don't live inside ideologies but we do. There is no life for us outside ideologies.We love slavery but they live above all kinds of bindings of caste religion or gender.The mad are better living beings than we are.This leads us to think about the ecological perspective evident in these lines.The beautiful images of flies,grasshoppers and moonlight remind me of the Green movement which is often interpreted as unrealistic,utopean and sheer madness.The poem seems to say that Kanden Pokkudan who spent all his life to protect the mangroves and thereby to save this earth was not mad as some of us thought.The Green movement is right.

 Sachidanandan ,as he has always done it in his other poems like stammer and cactus,presents a different perspective of life.Or all he wants to say is that life is about perceptions.In stammer,he humorosly brings out this idea of perceptions declaring that all of us are stammering at present,as we face many social challenges.This becomes evident in the times of demonitisation.Are we articulating our feelings as strongly as it should be?No. Instead the Indian society is stammering.At the same time we can see that there  is irony when the poet highlights Stammer as our language.Stammer is not a handicap.It is a mode of speech.There is self mockery when poetry itself is presented as stammering.At the same time stammer is highlighted as a language .Even the creator would have used this language at the time of creation and that is why we all stammer.!
 This irony and black humour is missing in the poem "The Mad".But one cannot miss the light touch of hidden humour, when the poet presents the shrugging of their shoulders as the shaking of the wings by some angels.Both the poems are written in free verse.Both of them engage the reader with their deep rhythm and lucid language.Both poems use analytical metaphors like "love is moonlight" in the 'the mad " and 'stammer is a mode of speech' in the stammer.Both poems seek the truth in concepts like God, Creation and Life.Analytical approach and philosophical tone are characteristics of the two poems.The different perceptions on madness and stammer are striking and revealing.
