THE HUNDRED DRESSES – 1

GIST

Wanda Petronski, a Poor Polish girl had immigrated to America along with her family. She studied in a school with other American students. Every day she came to school in a faded blue dress which was never ironed. She sat in the corner of the class room where some noisy boys sat. Wanda was an introvert. The other students would wait for her, pass comments and make fun of her outside the school. Peggy and Maddie often talked to her but they too, made fun of her. Wanda was close to Maddie. Peggy would often ask Wanda about her dresses in her closet. Wanda would reply that she had a hundred silk dresses. Peggy and Maddie would laugh and ask about Wanda’s shoes. Wanda would reply that she had 60 pairs of different shoes. Maddie was unlike Peggy. She was poor and wore old clothes usually given to her by others. She disliked all when they laughed at Wanda and wished Peggy would not tease her.Wanda’s absence from school went unnoticed.
All the students waited anxiously for the announcement of the names of winners of the drawing and colouring competition. Peggy was expected to be the winner. The drawings were displayed all over the class. Miss. Mason announced that girls had sent only one or two drawings, but a girl had sent hundred beautiful drawings. To everyone’s surprise, Wanda Petronski was declared the winner.Unfortunately, Wanda was absent on that day to hear the applause that was due to her.

Answer. Peggy and Maddie were two close friends. They belonged to different financial and cultural backgrounds. Peggy was pretty and had many beautiful dresses. Maddie, on the other hand, was from a poor family. Peggy used to hand over her old clothes to Maddie. Maddie’s mother would cover up the old clothes with new trimmings which would make it difficult for the other classmates to recognize them.
The girls would sit on the first row .Peggy was very good at drawing. Everyone felt that Peggy would win the girl’s medal in the drawing and colouring competition.Maddie felt uncomfortable when Peggy teased Wanda and wished she would stop doing so.


Question. What did Peggy and other girls think about Wanda Petronski? How was she different from other girls?

Answer. Peggy and other girls hardly noticed Wanda Petronski’s presence or absence in the class.Wanda sat in the last row in the class. Only ‘rough boys’ who never got good marks and made a lot of noise sat in that corner. A lot of dirt and mud could be found on the floor there. Nobody knew why she sat there. Wanda lived at Boggins Heights and her footwear carried a lot of dry mud with her from there. Girls found her coming to school and going home alone. She had no friends. Peggy, Maddie and others talked to Wanda only when she was outside the class. Peggy particularly enjoyed making fun of Wanda. Maddie would mockingly ask Wanda uncomfortable questions about her hundred dresses and sixty pairs of shoes. None believed that a poor girl like Wanda who usually wore a faded blue dress could have a hundred dresses. Peggy thought that Wanda was telling a lie. Maddie was different. She didn’t like Peggy making fun of Wanda. She wished Peggy would stop teasing Wanda in that manner.

 

Unseen Passage Class 10 English

1.Read the following passage carefully:

1. It is simple: when we buy a product, we check its manufacturing or expiry date. But we rarely check the ingredients. For example, most shampoos and soap contain the chemical sodium lauryl sulfate(SLS) which is carcinogenic, most toothpastes have very high sugar content, deodorants contain aerosols which deplete the ozone layer and harm the skin, and washing soaps clog drains and do not degrade easily. In short, almost all ‘washing and cleaning’ agents, including toothpastes, contain surfactants (like SLES or SLS)and other harmful chemicals that contribute to carbon emissions during their manufacture.

2. So using a herbal hair wash powder or a shampoo that has no SLS will keep your hair and you healthier. Substitute ayurvedic tooth powders for toothpastes. If you are inclined, you can make your own washing soap at home for use in a washing machine, which is far more eco friendly that the readymade detergents(recipes are available on the Net).And always remember if you are eating something that your grandmother or mother cannot make at home then you are inviting trouble.
