Q.2 :- “The sight of the food maddened him.” What does this suggest? What compelled the young seagull to finally fly?
This episode can be an important lesson to develop self dependence. We human beings get the protection of our near and dear ones almost through out our lives. Even if somebody becomes adult his/her parents remain protective about him/her. It sounds good but more often than not this possessive behaviour hampers our mental development.
Had seagull’s parents continued to feed him, he won’t have tried to fly. But the hunger along with sight of tasty fish compelled him to fly and reach for the sky.
