The little old house was out with a little new shed In front at the edge of the road where the traffic sped, A roadside stand that too pathetically pled, It would not be fair to say for a dole of bread, But for some of the money, the cash, whose flow supports The flower of cities from sinking and withering faint. The polished traffic passed with a mind ahead. a. What does the 'little old house' refer to? b. What is the condition of the roadside stand? c. What was the real purpose of setting up of a roadside stand? d. Explain: 'too pathetically pled.' e. How would this money help the country folk? f. How do the passers-bi react? Is their attitude right?
a. The little old house refers to a roadside stand. b. The roadside stand is not very presentable as the owner is not well enough to maintain the property. Though within his little means he had renovated the shed to make it look more inviting. c. The true purpose is to earn a little extra elevate their standard of living. d. The roadside stand seemed to be in a pitiable state as if it was pleading to all passers-by to halt and buy some wares from them. e. The city money would elevate their standard and give them a chance to rise in life. f. The passers-by are unperturbed and move on in their cars. Their mind is set to reach their destination. No, the poet finds their attitude quite annoying and he feels they atleast must carry some obligation towards their rural counterparts.
