Chapter 1. A LETTER TO GOD
Q1. What were Lencho’s feelings when the hail stopped?
Ans. When the hail stopped, Lencho’s soul was filled with sadness. He was very much troubled. His com was totally destroyed. He said, “The hail has left nothing. This year we will have no com. We will all go hungry”.
Q2. Why did the postmaster send a reply to Lencho’s first letter addressed to God?
Ans. The postmaster was a generous and amiable man. He was impressed by Lencho’s firm faith in God. To sustain that faith, the postmaster sent a reply to Lencho.
Q3. What was Leneho’s pride and possession?
Ans. Lencho lived in the solitary house on the crest of a low hill in the valley. From here, he could survey and see the river and his pride, the field of ripe corn dotted with flowers. These always promised a good harvest.
Their only wish was a downpour and Lencho, who knew his fields intimately, predicted rain. His prediction turned true when it started raining during dinner. He went out to feel the rain and surveyed with satisfaction, his crop draped in a curtain of rain. He regarded rain drops as a new silver coins.
Q4. Describe Lencho’s qualities in light of his faith in God. Do you have faith in God like Lencho? Was Lencho’s reaction towards post office employees’ right?
Ans.: Lencho was a poor farmer who totally depended on the harvest to survive and fulfil basic needs of his family. Once his crops were destroyed due to heavy rainfall and hailstones and he was afraid to think how his family would survive. He believed that God would help him in this plight. He had firm faith in God; he believed that God would not let him be hungry. Now-a-days faith in God like Lencho is almost impossible and unseen. People are very much aware that nobody is willing to help others without any self interest. Lencho’s reaction towards post office employees was not right or justified but it was just because of his innocence as he could not believe that God had done such a mistake. They were only the post office employees who had stolen money according to him.
Q5. Lencho seemed to be an impulsive man who felt suddenly elated at the rainfall and later became sad to see the destruction which the rain had caused. Did he lack of tolerance? Did he not have the courage to face the challenges of life? Elucidate it discussing the values one must possess to face any type of situation.
Ans. Lencho was a hardworking farmer. He had grown corn in his field and was anxiously hoping for a good rain. He was very happy to see the rain but he became despair on seeing the de stroyed crop in his field by the storm. No doubt he had tolerance and the courage to face the challenges in his life. He had a very firm faith in God and after the destruction of his field he was still hopeful that everything will be alright. Although Lencho was a very strong man and working hard in his fields, but his firm faith in God made him write a letter to God. And the tolerance in him only kept him waiting for the reply. He asked for hundred pesos from the God and was confident of receiving the amount. He accepted seventy pesos and again faced the situation by writing a second letter, demanding for the rest of the thirty pesos.
His faith in God was not shaken, he tackled the situation bravely. In the same way we should face all situations courageously. We should be tolerant and never lose faith in God.
