6. Let’s learn some grammar:

(a) Read the following two sentences:

(i) We will spend the nigh in our bhelaghar.
(ii) We’ll carry as much vegetables as possible.

Note the following
(i) We can write we will as we’ll
(ii) We’ll is a shorter form of we will.

Now rewrite the following sentences using the short form of will.

      (i) Mahen said, "We will make a bhelaghar."
           Answer: Mahen said, "We'll make a bhelaghar."

      (ii) They will spend the night in the bhelaghar.
            Answer: They'll spend the night in the bhelaghar.

      (iii) Sanju thought, "When everyone is asleep, I will pick vegetables."
            Answer: Sanju thought, "When everyone is asleep, I'll pick vegetables."

      (iv) Mahen said, "We will help each other to cook the food."
            Answer: Mahen said, "We'll help each other to cook the food."

      (v) They will have an uruka adventure.
            Answer: They'll have an uruka adventure. 


(b) Now read the following sentences:

(i) We’ll carry as much as possible in our hands.
(ii) I shall wait to see who comes to steal my vegetables.

Note the following:

We use words like will and shall to talk about something that is going to happen in the future.

(c)Note the difference in meaning between the first two sentences and the third:

(i) We will spend the night in the bhelaghar.
(ii) We shall go and pick vegetables.
(iii) We spent the night in the bhelaghar.

The first two sentences express future time and the third sentence expresses past time.

(d) Note the forms of negative sentences:
(i) We will not spend the night in the bhelaghar.
(ii) We did not spend the night in the bhelaghar.

We use will not or won’t and did not or didn’t to express a negative meaning.

Now check your grammar. Rewrite these sentences by changing the underlined verbs to express future time.

(i)Mahen called his friends to his house.
(ii) Mahen jumped up in joy.
(iii) They decided to celebrate uruka together.
(iv) They planned to hold the feast in Mahen’s houuse.
(v) We went to pick vegetables from Shantiram’s garden.

7. Read the story and write down the words ending with -ly. One is done for you.

(a) Excitedly
(b) Gleefully
(c)Frantically
(d)Eerily

8(a) Read the paragraphs given below carefully. They describe what the friends did on Uruka night.

All the words highlighted in italics bold refer to actions that took place in the past.

Mahen and his friends decided to hold a feast together. They planned to hold the feast at Mahen’s compound. Mahen and sanju said that they would do the shopping for the feast at the nearby market. Mahen’s friends Nantu and Rinku suggested that they should cook for the feast themselves.

Rumon offered to cook the vegetables and the fish. Sanju and Nantu said that they would cook the rice, the lentils and the chicken. The five friends proposed that they would spend the entire night at Mahen’s compound.

As planned earlier, the five boys built a big shed using straw and bamboo. Rumon’s uncle helped them with the task. The boys joyfully cooked for the feast with a little supervision and help from Mahen’s mother. When the feast was over, Mahen commanded his friends to follow him on their nocturnal adventure. They made straight for Shantiram’s house at the end of the lane. The five friends tiptoed into his garden after crossing the nongola. Suddenly, they saw a black heap of garbage in the middle of the rows of vegetables. They thought it was inert and harmless. But when they boys stretched their hands to pick the vegetables, the heap suddenly moved. To their utter horror, they discovered it was none other than Shantaram himself, covered in a black blanket. Terrified, they fled from the scene. What a narrow escape they had?

Now sit in groups. Then, using verbs in similar forms, tell the groups how you celebrated one of your festivels this year. Did you have an adventure like Mahen or was it a rather ordinary experience for you?

Remember to include the following points to describe your experience:
1) How you planned for the festivel
2) With whom you celebrated it
3) What was prepared for the festivel
4) What you ate and who did the cooking
5) What adventures you had with your friends.
(b) Name a festivel that all indians celebrate in the month of january. Discuss with your partner and write a few lines on it.

(9) Read the verbs in column A and write their past forms in Column B, as ashown in the example:

Buy – Bought
Catch – caught
Teach – taught
Bring – Brought
Fight – Fought

10. What did you notice about the words in Column B above?
Notice that the ‘ght’ in all the past forms is pronounced as the ‘t’ is pronounced in ‘cot’.

Can you think of more words ending with ‘ght’? Work with a friend practise saying aloud the words you have listed.
