Answer the following in 120-150 words:
How does Jo show her independent thinking in the story, ‘Should Wizard Hit Mommy’?
How did Tiger King succeed in killing ‘hundred’ tigers?
It is true that Jo shows her independent thinking in the story. After reading the text, we come to know that Jo’s world is a dreamy world of romance and beauty. She can’t afford to see her hero Roger smelling bad. He must smell of roses. Jo’s perspective is very different from the adults. Children look at this world from a different perspective. Their perspective on life reflects simplicity and innocence. Jo has deep sympathy for Roger Skunk. Jo’s main anger is against the, “stupid mommy” of Roger. It was she who forced the wizard to make Roger smell very bad again. The hero of the story is always a role model for children. Jo wants that Roger’s mommy should be punished. The wizard must hit her head hard with his magic wand.
The Maharaja was very anxious because one tiger was to be killed to achieve the tally of hundred tigers. His anxiety reached a fever pitch because he has killed almost all the tigers of his kingdom. Then he received news from the villagers that there was a possibility of a tiger living in a hillside village. The Maharaja announced a three-year exemption from all taxes for that village. He set out for the hunt at once. The tiger was not found there, but the Maharaja refused to leave the forest. Now the danger was at the Dewan’s head. So, he arranged a tiger from the people’s park Madras. He was left in the forest where the Maharaja was hunting. Maharaja killed the tiger but actually, tiger survived. Tiger was not killed by the Maharaja he got faint, and Maharaja’s bullet missed its mark. But Maharaja was not aware of this. He doesn’t know that the hundredth tiger was not killed by him. So the hundredth tiger caused his death, and that tiger which killed him was not a ferocious beast. A wooden toy-tiger was the cause of his death.
