Kindness to Animals Questions and Answers, Summary, Notes
Papa is so nice that he gifted me a friend “Rabbit”, a gift none of my friends have. The rabbit is white like cotton and her eyes are beautiful like pomegranate seeds, but a little bigger. She has beautiful long ears. Papa, Amma and I decided to call her “Sweety”.
Amma- takes care of Sweety. Sweety loves to eat carrots and raw vegetables. Amma says vegetables eaten raw after washing, are good. So my friend Sweety and I eat together in the evening.
When I come from school, I see Sweety waiting for me. She jumps on me and I carry her. I kiss her and we play in the small garden we have behind the house. Lots of flowers grow there. It is a very beautiful garden. On Sunday morning, I water the plants.
Uncle Roshan came from Mangaluru. He liked my friend Sweety. When I was playing in the living room, uncle Roshan, who is my father’s friend said, “I have not eaten rabbit meat for a long time.
Can I take it while I go back tomorrow? You all don’t like eating meat and w- don’t get to see rabbits this daada. My family and I will have a feast.” My Papa and Amma became angry but they did not talk. They kept quiet and continued to watch T.V. Uncle Ram got up, went to the table and started doing his office work.
I ran to see where Sweety was. She was playing on the lawn. I immediately carried her to my friend’s house. I asked my friend to keep sweety for a day and said I would collect her the next day. I left some carrots for her too and came home. Since I take care of Sweety, Papa and Amma did not know what I had done.
Early morning, after breakfast, Uncle Ram asked for Sweety. Papa and Amma kept quiet, uncle Ram looked around. Nowhere could he find her. And then he left for Mangaluru. My Sweety is safe forever.

Kindness to Animals Summary in English
“The given poem ‘Kindness to animals’ is penned by an anonymous poet. In the poem, the poet is requesting little children to never give pain to all things that feel and live. He pleads with them to let the gentle robin (a small brown bird marked with red on its breast) to come and eat the crumbs of food that we have saved in our home.
If you allow him to feed on the ‘Meat’ (crumbs), he will be grateful to you, and in return for that favour, he will sing a sweet song to cheer you.
Again the poet pleads the children not to hurt the timid hare, peeping frantically from her green grass lair. He requests the children to allow it to come and play on the lawn during the evening and you can watch it playing and entertain yourself.
The poet gives vivid imagery of a little lark that goes soaring high into the bright sky. It sings cheerfully as if it was spring every day. The little lark is so active that he does not get tired of fluttering and singing all day long.
Hence the poet pleads with the children to let him sing his happy song and never ‘do wrong’ i.e, never hurt or kill these gentle creatures.
