Let us talk
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö In your home too, do people quarrel over fans, TV, newspapers,
chairs or anything else?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö  In your home, who settles such quarrels?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö  Talk about an interesting incident at home when there was
a quarrel over such things.
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Have you ever seen people quarrelling over something
elsewhere? What?
Why the Difference? Why the Difference? Why the Difference? Why the Difference? Why the Difference?
It is 7 o’clock in the evening. Pratibha is hurrying home from her
friend’s house. Her brothers Sandeep and Sanjay are busy playing
round the corner with their friends.
They are in no hurry to go home.
Even if they are late, nobody
will scold them.
Pratibha thinks that
this is not fair. Why
should there be one rule
for her and another for
her brothers? But what
can she do?
Let us talk
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Does this kind of thing happen in your house or in any of
your friend’s house? What do you think about this?
Ö Ö Ö Ö Ö Do you think that there should be different rules for girls and
boys, women and men?

Pilloo Aunty Pilloo Aunty Pilloo Aunty Pilloo Aunty Pilloo Aunty
One day, Pilloo Aunty took Phali and Nazu and their friends  to
the beach. What a good time they had! They played in sand
and water, and then went for a ride on the Giant wheel. After
that they ate bhelpuri and bought balloons. Then everybody
enjoyed some icy cold kulfi. When the kulfi-seller asked for
money, he made a mistake. He charged for five kulfis instead of
seven. The children thought, “Hurrah! We have saved money.”
But Pilloo Aunty paid the money for seven kulfis to the kulfi-
seller.
The children will always remember what Pilloo Aunty did
that day.

Akshay loves his grandmother
very much. She loves him dearly
too. She talks to him about
many interesting things.
Anil is Akshay’s friend.
His grandmother likes
Anil too, but one thing
that she tells Akshay
again and again is that
he should never eat or
drink anything at
Anil’s house – not even
a glass of water! “They
are very different from
our family,” she says.
One day there was a volleyball match in the big ground near
Anil’s house. It was a hot day and everybody was tired and
thirsty after the match. Anil invited everybody home. Anil’s
mother gave water to all of them, and they drank it. When Anil
handed Akshay a glass of water, he suddenly remembered his
grandmother’s warning. Akshay stared at Anil, not knowing
what to do.

Dhondu comes from a very
large family. His elder uncle
looks after the family – their
fields, money matters, etc. He
decides about all the small and
big things for the family.
Dhondu has always worked in the
fields. But now, he wants to do something
different. He would like to borrow some money from a bank
and buy a chakki machine to grind grain. There is no such
machine in their village. Dhondu is confident that this new
work will help him earn more money for his family. Father has
agreed to let him try the new work. But his elder uncle is not
agreeing to this.
For the teacher: These examples reflect some situations that we face in our
daily life. These often affect us in different ways. Encourage children to
think about these and to express how they feel about them.
