Short Summary Of The Open Window in English

The Open Window Introduction
The writer set the story in a rural area. The story revolves around an open window. Although it is an object the girl weaved a narrative around it. She concocted a story that scared away the guest. She again made up a story and gave the scene a new twist. The swiftness and brevity in her creating a narrative were extraordinary.

The Open Window Summary of the Lesson

Frampton Nuttel is the main character of the story. He reached out to the countryside to get cured of his disease. The story opened in a house where a girl was attending to her guest in the absence of her aunt.

She was a girl of fifteen years. He was apprehensive if he could find a cure for his nerve disease. He thought of his sister who advised and sent him to the countryside with a letter of introduction. She was skeptical of his improvement in health unless he visits a quiet and peaceful place.

After a few minutes of silence, the girl inquired if he knew anyone in the surrounding. He gently answered that he was new to the place and it was his sister who stayed there about four years ago. He also spoke in a regretful tone about the reference letter.

The girl tried to confirm if he really didn’t know the people around. Frampton pondered about the state of Mrs. Sappleton while looking around in the room. The girl started concocting a story about Mrs.

Sappleton that her husband and two brothers with spaniel went for hunting. They did not return. Their bodies were not found. That’s why she kept the French window open.

She often told her that her husband would enter with a waterproof coat over his arm and Ronnie her youngest brother would sing ‘Bertie, who do you bound?’ to tease her.

She further added that even she started believing. Then entered Mrs. Sappleton asking for forgiveness of delay. She was certain that Vera must have entertained him with her craft of telling stories.

She informed him about her family members who went out for shooting for snipe in the Marshes. She was worried about her carpet as they would spoil that with muddy shoes.

She kept on saying about the scarcity of birds and prospects for duck in the winter. Frampton was on his nerves when he related the two stories of the ladies of the house.

Frampton called it an unfortunate coincidence that he visited on the anniversary of such a tragic ailments. He told her that the doctor’s advised him to take complete rest, and to avoid anything in ‘the nature of violent physical exercise’.

Mrs. Sappleton’s eyes were anxiously waiting for her husband and then came shine in her eyes when she saw them approaching. Through the most horrified Frampton looked at Vera and stared at the window.

Three figures entered walking across the lawn towards the window carrying their arms. Then her brother teased her again by saying ‘Bertie, why do you bound?’.

Terrified with unnamed fear Frampton picked up his things and went away almost colliding with a cyclist.

Mrs. Sappleton told her husband about Mr. Nuttel about who asked at sudden withdrawal. Mrs. Sappleton was also taken aback at such a gesture. Vera explained that once he had experienced a horror of dogs.

He was once hunted into a cemetery and had to spend a night there. The story ended at the brevity and storytelling quality of the girl.

Ranji live in a town in Rajputana desert. Ranji was new to the place in Rajpur. He roamed around in the semi hill station and the nearby forest. His schools were closed.

He did not have friends as yet, so he preferred to take a look at the surroundings. The season was hot, with dry and parched earth, brown and dry grass lifeless trees. Everything came to a standstill and waiting for the cool breeze. Ranji wore vest and shorts.

‘One day, Ranji found a small stream in the forest. The water was clear with pebbles at the bottom of the pool. It was not rushing stream as it was watered during monsoon.

The small stream made a pool in the rocks. He was fascinated by the clear water and jumped into it. He was thin and dark. He belonged to an area where only sticky, muddy pools where buffaloes bathe and women washed clothes.

His fondness for swimming did not die. Even the next day, he remained in the water for sometime and rested at a smooth yellow rock in the shade of sal trees and kept on doing this.

He was observed by another boy observing him in an unfriendly way. He was older, to Ranji. Ranji overlooked him until the boy asked about his identification.

Ranji did not expect the unfriendly behaviour of the boy. Still he invited him to swim along. The boy rejected his offer and claimed the pool to be his. The boy tried to scare a way him and stood in a commanding position.

He said that he was a warrior. To which Ranji replied that he was a fighter. He kept on intimidating Ranji who was unwilling to Surrender. That led them to fight about.

Initially they tried to scare each other away. The boy punched hard on Ranji’s face waking him dizzy. They started hitting each other hard and then hold each other’s neck. They tumbled over each other.

They were exhausted still no one wanted to surrender before other. Then they put on their clothes and decided to continue the dual the next day.

Ranji told him that it was easy by stretching arms and allowing the head to displace his feet. The boy tried but failed miserably. He landed flat on his belly with a splash with crashing sound that scared away the birds.

He was asked to practice more. He was also astonished to see that Ranji could swim under water. Ranji supported him in every failed effort. They made a pact that Ranji would teach him swimming and the boy won’t scare him away.

The king gave away gifts on his birthday. Once he gave green parrots in a golden cage to all his daughters. The princesses were fond of the parrots and taught them to talk. ‘God save the king’ and ‘Pretty Polly’.

One day Princess September found her parrot lying dead in the cage. It was heart-rending to her. She kept on crying at the loss. Her maids of honor tried to comfort her but failed in their effort.

So they went to the queen who did not pay heed to her distress. The maid of honor was to go to a party left the princess crying in bed with taking supper. Then they entered a little bird and hopped into her room.

It started singing a beautiful song about the lake in the king’s garden, willow trees; goldfish etc. that made September forget all her sadness and hunger. The little bird offered herself in place of her pet parrot. Princess September was delighted to own such a melodious singing bird.

The next morning, he wished her good morning when the maid of Honour brought her breakfast; it was fed to him by the Princess. His singing impressed the audiences and the princess feels elated.

She then took him to tour to her sisters and parents’. Everyone was delighted by his performance. Queen did not like the parrots saying repeated lines.

Whereas the king admired the parrot saying ‘God save the king’. Yet condemned ‘Pretty Polly’. That discouraged the princesses and their parrot. September enjoyed the song of the bird.

That went on for a few days unless the other sister poisoned the mind. They said that she had to bear the death of her pet and they would arrange a parrot for her.

But September replied that she did not need parrot anymore as she had a better bird. They asked the whereabouts of the bird. To which she replied that the bird flew off to meet his father-in-law.

The princesses tried to scare her that he might not come back because he was not caged. Their persistent nagging made her uncomfortable.

Insecure Princess September felt that something might happen to him. She was worried that hawks or someone might have trapped his. All she wanted was his safety.

Then appeared the bird and started chirping in her ears. She grew angry. The bird told her that he would not have replied as his father – in – law was giving a party.

He wanted him to attend the party. But he knew that she would be worried so he returned. September was not willing to take any chance further, she decided to cage him she put him in the cage.

The bird was shocked at the sudden reaction of her. The reason she gave was that the queen’s cat might harm her. The bird agreed to it but for once only. He wanted to sing after supper but could not continue as he did not feel like.

The next morning he wanted to be free. His desperation grew, he beat against the door and shout but all his efforts went in vain. Rather eight princesses were delighted to see him in pain.

On the request to set him free, September replied that she knew what’s better of him. She wanted him to sing for her and offered him a piece of sugar. He could not sing inside the cage.

He wanted to see the trees, the lake and willow trees all by himself. He was not willing to see through the cage. He gave up eating and singing, then anxious princess turned to her sisters for their opinion.

They called him obstinate and wanted her to conform to her stand. September agreed to their suggestion and felt the same way. She assumed that he might be accustomed to bars of the cage.

The next morning she wished the bird but got no answer. She was shocked to see that the bird was lying unmoved in the cage. She took him out of the cage and started crying. When her tears fell on him, he looked up.

He pleaded that he could not sing inside the cage and if he could not sing, he would die.

She freed him then and there. He promised her that he would return to her. She sobbed and was feeling lonely. Her sisters mocked at her. But he returned to her and sang beautiful songs for her.

She kept her windows open to let him go or come whenever he felt like. She grew beautiful and got married to the king of Cambodia and was carried on a white elephant. Her sisters were married to the councilor only as they were not as beautiful.

Because he was not allowing his creations to blossom. When he broke the wall. Happiness and beauty surrounded him in terms of children and spring season. Detailing and personification of hail, snow is presented well.

The Selfish Giant Summary of the Lesson

The opening lines suggest that the children were fond of playing in the Giant garden. It was a lovely garden with soft grass and beautiful flowers. It had twelve peach trees that flourish with pink and pearl flowers in spring season turn into rich fruits in the autumn. The children listened to the songs of various birds and thus lived in ecstasy.

Their enjoyment had ended with the arrival of the Giant. Who was away for last seven years to a friend’s house. He was infuriated when he saw children playing in his garden. He started shouting and built a high wall around it. He put up a notice that trespassing from his property is prohibited.

The decision took a toll on children as they did not have a place to play because if they play on the road, there was a lot of dust and stones. They were very sad and depressed.

As the time passed by, spring season came and flowers blossomed everywhere and little birds were chirping all around. But it did not arrive in Giants’ garden. There were barren winters only.

Trees and flowers were not blossoming. No birds were chirping. However, the snow and the frost were happy. The snow-covered up the grass with her white cloak and frost covered trees.

The north wind was invited to stay by them. They brought chaos in the garden. Then they planned to invite hail, he fell on the roof of the castle and broke most of its spates. He was dressed in grey.

However, the Giant was waiting eagerly and was hopeful. One morning, the Giant heard the melodious song of a bird. Initially, the Giant thought that it must be the king’s musician passing by.

Then Giant rejoiced as he was sure that the spring has arrived. He looked out and found that children were back. Every tree was blossoming as a child was sitting on its branch.

The birds were flying, flowers were laughing except for a place where a small child could not climb the tree. The poor tree wanted the child as frost, snow and north wind were blowing on that. The Giant realized his mistake and decided to break the wall.

He went downstairs and opened the front door. But the children were frightened to see him. The small boy could not run away. The Giant lifted the boy and put him onto a branch of the tree. The tree blossomed at once.

The Giant’s behavior was changed and he allowed the other children. Then they entered the spring. Jubilant Giant took an ax and knocked down the wall. People were surprised to see the children playing with the Giant.

The Giant invited every child to visit his ground with special mention to the youngest child. But nobody knew him. The Giant was kind to every child. Years rolled by, the Giant grew old. He watched the children playing while sitting in an armchair. He said that the children are the most beautiful flowers of all.

The Giant no longer hated the winters. One winter morning, he was surprised to see the lovely white blossoms. Its branches were golden bearing silver fruit. There was the little boy sitting underneath.

He was very happy and rushed towards him. On seeing his hands, he grew angry. He wanted to punish the wrongdoer. But the child replied that those were wounds of love. The Giant was shocked to hear such an answer.

He then asked about him who replied gently that once he allowed him to play him in his garden. Now he would take him along. When children came to play in the afternoon, they found the Giant lying dead covered with white blossoms.

He found the life of the village better as compared to the city. Survival in the city is a constant struggle for the poor. Children work for survival instead of school. Their childhood is crushed under the cruel hands of poverty.

Children at Work Summary of the Lesson

The protagonist is an eleven – year old boy, ran away from home because of distraught in his family. He got down at Chennai Central carrying a small bundle by Kanyakumari express.

He rested on a platform for some time then he sat on a bench. He was surprised to see a mass of people. He observed that people were in a great rush. The frequent announcement attracted his attention, he found the surroundings chaotic.

Velu was sad and miserable. He hadn’t had anything other than some peanuts and jaggery. He walked down to Kannur for a day and then took the train to Chennai. He slept on the floor near the door.

His meditation was broken when a girl called him up. She was behind his bench. She wore banian had untidy hair, and holding a huge sack on her shoulder. She picked up garbage from the platform and put that in her sack.

She asked him if he had run away from his home. He was lost in his own thoughts that his father spent the money he and his sister earned on his drinks. She told him that so many children of his age come to the city to become rich.

She asked him if he was hungry and assured him to find something for him. Velu was in a dilemma about whether to trust and follow the girl or not.

The girl went ahead and was not much interested in seeing him following. However, he followed her to the road. He was scared to see so many vehicles on the road and could not cross the road.

The girl came to his rescue and helped him to cross the road. She warned him not to freeze in between the road. He was amazed to see huge signboards with the varied pictures. He could not understand the words written on them as they were in English.

The girl walked up to a bridge from where Velu peeped through the railing. She advised him not to get caught as they were passing beside the central jail. She moved ahead with a sack on her shoulder Velu was inquisitive to know what was she carrying in that yet could not dare to ask.

Velu realized that walking bare feet was intolerable on the road whereas he could easily roam around in the village. He tried to walk in shade and altogether kept pace with the girl.

It took almost an hour to reach a building where the marriage ceremony was going on. She led him behind it to a garbage bin which was stinky. She threw a vada towards him. When she was observed that he was hesitant, she told him that she did not have any money to buy food.

Velu surrendered before the high intensity of hunger. She asked if he was coming along or wanting to wait. He was aware of the fact that he could not manage alone so he ran after her.

He asked for her name and then they both moved further towards her home. He observed that the hutments were made of metal sheets, tires, bricks, wood, and plastic. He told her that houses in his village were built with mud and palm leaves.

She put her full sack and picked up another sack. She gave him shoes to wear.

He was puzzled with the utility of garbage for the girl. He knew the job of working in the land owner’s farm and taking cows to graze. He asked if there were any farms. Jaya told him that there were no farms. She called herself a rag picker.

She further added that they were selling their rubbish for money. She rebuked him for taking too long to decide. Velu was optimistic enough so he agreed to the job. He knew that he could switch over to a new & better job in the future.

At the beginning of the world, various animals started to work under the subjugation of man. There was a camel who was fed on sticks, thorns, and prickles was living in the middle of a Howling Desert. He was not interested in doing any work. Even if he was asked, his only reply was Humph.

On Monday, a horse approached with the saddle on his back and asked him to trot like the rest of them. The camel gave him a cold reply and said ‘Humph’. The horse went away and informed the man. Then came a dog with a stick in his mouth. He asked him to come along to do some work.

The camel said ‘Humph’ and turned a cold shoulder to him. Then the dog left to tell it to the man. There af¬ter came an ox with the yoke on his neck and asked to plow like him.

The camel replied ‘Humph’. The ox reported the man about this. At the end of the day they complained to the man. But the man asked them to work double-time to make up.

This annoyed the three and they held a panchayat on the edge of the desert. The camel listened to it but ignored them and left. Then appeared the Djinn who were in charge of all deserts.

They put forward their complaints before the Djinn. And then he decided to teach him a lesson. The Djinn wrapped himself in his dust cloak and went into the desert to find the camel.

The Djinn reproached the camel who was looking at his reflection in the mirror. He asked the reasons of his reluctance to work. It was expected from the camel to do three works since Monday.

Djinn waited for his reply who in turn said ‘Humph’. Djinn warned him by saying that he wouldn’t say ‘Humph’ again and again. He just wanted him to work. His adamant attitude annoyed the Djinn.

When the camel was seeing his reflection in Water, his back suddenly grew up a lump. Djinn explained to him that the camel had been in a state of denial when he was asked to work since Monday.

On Thursday, he got punishment of his wrongdoings. The camel was shocked to see that and asked him ‘how can I’ with this hump on my back. Djinn said that he could complete his work without taking any food or water.

Djinn also added that he favored the camel and now he should join the Three. He warned him to behave properly. However, he still doesn’t catch up with the initial three days that he missed at the beginning of the world. His hump at present is the penalty of his past mistake.
