English Beehive Chapter 6
Chapter 6 is an extract from “Wings of Fire”, the autobiography of Dr A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. My Childhood Class 9 English text tells us about the childhood experience of Abdul Kalam. He was born in a middle-class Muslim family in 1931 in Rameshwaram. He was greatly influenced by his parents, his teachers and his friends in his childhood. His father was not well educated, but he was so generous and provided all the necessities for his children. Kalam inherited self-discipline, honesty, faith and kindness from his parents. They visited Hindu temples and participated in festivals. They have respect in all religions. Kalam earned his first wages in Rameshwaram by helping his cousin, who distributed newspapers.
Abdul Kalam has three friends who belong to the orthodox Brahmin families. Ramananda Sastry, Aravinda and Shivaparakasan. When he was in the fifth standard sitting in a front row with his friends, a new teacher asked him not to sit with the Hindu children. Then the children explained the incident in their house, and Sastry’s father called the teacher and rebuked him. The teacher realised his mistake and apologised. One day his science teacher invited Kalam to his house for dinner. His wife refused to serve him as he is a Muslim boy. Then the teacher himself served the food and ate with him. The teacher’s wife could notice nothing changes in Kalam’s face, and she realised her mistake. When he was invited for dinner, the teacher’s wife served the food for Kalam and was happy.
Abdul Kalam asked his father for permission to go for higher studies. Though he knew that he had to leave his parents, his father agreed and sent him to Ramanathapuram. His father convinced his mother and said that we should not dominate our children because they too have their thoughts and desires. We should give them the freedom to fulfil their thoughts.
