Joan Didion ‘ In Bed ’, an essay by Joan Didion depicts her personal experiences with migraine headache, which she inherits from her parents. She presents something unusual about the disease in a more philosophical and meditative domain of thought. Joan spends her day in bed there almost five times a month because of the migraine headache. She knows that she is going to be attacked by the headache when she feels some sort of irritation and flow of blood in the vessels of her brain. To avoid the attack she takes some medicines and starts to work. In her earlier days, she thought that she would get rid of the disease just by denying it. Sometimes she even tells lies saying that she did not have the attack frequently. But the truth was that sometimes the attack was quite violent and long lasting. However, she feels good that she does not have any other physical problems, such as brain tumor, eyestrain or high blood pressure. She also tries to do all her normal work in spite of i


-Arthur Guiterman The main theme of this poem is that it’s useless to be proud of our earthly greatness and achievements. These things  aren't  permanent. The only permanent thing is   ‘Time’ . Everything else including our earthly greatness and achievements has to bow before time. “ On the Vanity of Worldly Things ” is written by Arthur Guiterman , an American poet and journalist. He is best known for his humorous verse. Through humor, he has tried to depict the reality of human beings and animals caused by the change in time. It shows the bitter reality that the power of animals or human beings doesn't remain same when time and situation change. We always run after reputation and prestige. We become or want to be great and we think it will remain the same forever. We earn reputation and prestige and we think it will remain the same forever. We earn reputation and we think that the credit won’t be lost but actually we won’t think that is destroyed in due course of time.

-Rabindranath Tagore CHARACTERS: King Queen Malini: Hindu Princess Kemankar: Strict, traditional Brahman who is the leader of Brahmin Supriya: Very intimate friend of Kemankar Brahmins              Subject Matter :  Clash between Hinduism and Buddhism CHARACTER SKETCH OF SUPRIYA From the very beginning of the novel, Supriya does not intend to banish the innocent girl. He even does not believe that gathering would determine truth and reality. He criticizes those scriptures which fitted their own narrow hearts. He assures Kemankar that his friendship with him is older than the new religion. Anyway, Supriya deceives his friend Kemankar. Supriya is firm and determined in his action but he only doubts when he begins to debate. As a whole, Supriya performs the role of betrayer because when Kemankar was warning him telling that his heart might be drawn from him by the novelty of the falsehood, at that time, Supriya assured Kemankar that falsehood may be new but t
