The Chimney Sweeper
When my mother died I was very young,
And my father sold me while yet my tongue
Could scarcely cry ‘weep! weep! ‘weep! ‘weep!
So your chimneys I sweep and in soot I sleep.
There’s little Tom Dacre, who cried when his head,
That curled like a lamb’s back, was shaved: so I said,
“Hush, Tom! never mind it, for when your head’s bare,
You know that the soot cannot spoil your white hair.”
And so he was quiet, and that very night,
As Tom was a-sleeping he had such a sight!
That thousands of sweepers, Dick, Joe, Ned, and Jack,
Were all of them locked up in coffins of black;
And by came an angel who had a bright key,
And he opened the coffins and set them all free;
Then down a green plain, leaping, laughing they run,
And wash ina river and shine in the sun.

a. Who is the speaker in the poem ?
. Why did Tom Dacre cry ?
. What is Tom’s hair compared with ?

This morning the city of Paris looks slightly fuming; the sky is overcast,
and it is drizzling too. But it does no harm to me. I have decided to go
out for a visit or an observation tour. I had asked Nirmal bhaai for a list
of museums in the vicinity of Paris yesterday. He brought me some
brochures with the names and addresses, and street maps of Paris Museums
in the evening. Paris has more museums than temples and gods in
Kathmandu, he says. I am new to Paris, staying here for only one week.
Hope these maps and brochures will show me Paris metro zones and
guide me to some museums today. Last week Nirmal bhaai showed me
Pompidou Centre, ‘a complex building of high-tech structure’. This visit
has emboldened me to explore further.
I guess I can cover a maximum, of two museums today. It means just
giving a cursory glance. This is my plan. They say Cezanne is quite far
away, Paul Cezanne, the post-impressionist painter, may be in the
outskirts. I cannot visit him all alone, and cannot cover two museums in
a day. So I chose to visit a museum nearby in the heart of the city.
Likewise, Braque is far, Du Champ is farther away. So I have decided as
per Nirmal’s suggestion to start with Rodin’s. Maybe I will go to Monet’s

Pokhara gears upto welcome 2019
POKHARA. The tourism scene in Pokhara swayed between on-season and
off-season until a decade ago where in March, April, May, October,
November and December were considered to be peak seasons while the
rest of the months witnessed a slack in terms of incoming tourists in the
However, of late, the influx of tourists has remained untouched by the
set definition of peak and slow seasons, further encouraging travel and
tourism entrepreneurs here.
Keeping the current trend in mind, tourism entrepreneurs are looking to
project and establish Pokhara as a sought after destination for celebrating
Christmas and New-Year. In the same line, preparations are currently
underway for organizing Pokhara street festival here in the city.
The 20th Pokhara Street Festival, which was known as REBAN Street
Festival until 2007, is being held from December 28 to January 1, 2019
at Lakeside, organized by Restaurant and Bar Association of Nepal
REBAN Pokhara along with a team of tourism entrepreneurs have been
engaged in preparations for the festival while also establishing Pokhara,
Lumbini and Chitwan as the ‘Silver Triangle’. It must be noted that
these three districts hold major attraction points for internal as well as
According to former President of REBAN Pokhara, Surya Bahadur
Bhujel, the street festival also aims at marketing Pokhara as a destination
for celebrating New Year, somewhat reflecting Goa’s current image as a
popular New Year destination.
The event will be celebrated as Nepal Carnival in the days to come,
added Bhujel. According to him, the Gandaki Province government is
also a patron for this event.
The festival will be held along a stretch of 3.5 kms of street in Lakeside,
said President of REBAN Pokhara, Budharaj Bhujel.
At the event, cultural shows from Nepal along with Japan, South Korea,
China and India will be exhibited along with cuisine representing various
countries from across the globe at over 150 different stalls.
