Question:

Read the two views on the revolution in the countryside. Imagine yourself to be a witness to the events. Write a short account from the standpoint of:

  • an owner of an estate
  • a small peasant
  • a journalist

Answer:

Sample views on the revolution are given below:

(a) An Owner of an Estate: Due to revolution, my labourers took away my land. Though they spared me and my family, now I am completely dependent on their mercy. They cut my huge tree and distributed the logs amongst themselves. They destroyed all my buildings. Now I even do not know whether they will give back my land in future or not.

(b) A Small Peasant: Finally, our struggle comes to an end. Now together we all labourers can earn more by sharing profits from the selling of grains. Earlier, landowners used to take all the profits of our hard work without doing anything. But now due to revolution this has changed for our betterment.

(c) A Journalist: The news of the revolt has been welcomed in the village by peasants as they overpowered the landowners and took over the industries to run them collectively. Now the profits have been divided among the peasants. Surely, the revolution has cleared up the way for the property of peasants at the expense of the landowners.
