Think About It



Question 1.
Has Lushkoff become a beggar by circumstance or by choice?
Answer:
Rushkoff has become a beggar not by circumstance but by choice. This is clear in his talk with Sergei. To him he pretends that he can’t get any work.

Question 2.
What reasons does he give to Sergei for his telling lies? (CBSE)
Answer:
Rushkoff gives out the reasons that he can’t get along without lying. No one will give him anything when he tells the truth. So he tells that he can’t do anything except telling lies.

Question 3.
Is Lushkoff a willing worker? Why, then, does he agree to chop wood for Sergei?
Answer:
Rushkoff is not a willing worker. He agrees to chop wood for Sergei. It is because he fears that if he doesn’t, Sergei would report to the police.

Question 4.
Serggi says, “I am happy that my words have taken effect.” Why does he say so ? Is he right in saying this ?
Or
‘Sergei looked satisfied with the performance of the beggar. He was happy that his words had a positive effect on him.’ How effective were his words? (CBSE 2016)
Answer:
Sergei says so because his words are morally good for Rushkoff. They change him into a good human being. Rushkoff becomes a worker from a beggar. So Sergei helps to change Lushkoff into a responsible human being.



Question 5.
Rushkoff is earning thirty-five roubles a month. How is he obliged to Sergei for this?
Answer:
Earlier Sergei did not earn his livelihood honestly. He begs but he can work. So begging is morally wrong on his part. Now he earns his livelihood by hard work. He can raise his head in self-respect. This all is due to Sergei. So he feels obliged to Sergei for this.

Question 6.
During their conversation Lushkoff reveals that Sergei’s cook, Olga, is responsible for the positive change in him. How has Olga saved Rushkoff?
Answer:
Olga knew that Lushkoff won’t work. So she felt pity for him like a sincere mother and worked for him. She sat down opposite him. She rebuked him when he didn’t work. Very soon this changed his heart. And he started working. He stopped drinking and became a good man.
