    The poem Of Mothers, Among Other Things is about motherhood. From the very beginning, the poet seems to be talking about his mother. In the poem, the poet describes how his mother struggled a lot for the sake of their children.

    The poet describes the three phases of his mother’s life – her youth, her middle and and her old age. In each phase of her life, she had to face hardships. In the first part, the phrase “I see my mother run back from rain” shows her sacrifices for her children.

    In the second part, the poet tells that she was crippled in the garden by mouse trap, again a part of her struggled life. In the final part, we see how she kept working even when she has no energy.

    So the whole poem is about motherhood. Through this poem, the poet tells us that we should not consider mother as an ordinary commodity. The poet seems to be regretting in the final part and so does every person who has talked harshly to his mother in the past.

    In English, both the phrases “in what year” and “in which year” are correct. However their use depends on the situation.

    “In which year”

    The word which is used for specific thing. e.g. if I have to choose from a number of shoes, I will say, “Which shoes should I wear”.

    Similarly, we want to go for a picnic, we will ask, “Which place should we visit”.

    Hence the phrase “in which year” can be used when we have to choose from specific number of years. E.g. “in which year America got independence?” or;

    “In which year, you got the job?”

    “In What Year”

    We use “what” for general queries. In other words, the word “what” is used when we don’t have something specific in our minds.

    E.g. “what are your plans for today”

    Hence the phrase “in what year” is used for something which is not specific and the outcome will be from out of all the possible years.

    E.g. “in what year Renaissance began?”

    The play Final Solutions, written by Mahesh K. Dattani discusses the theme of communal riots, hatred and bitterness of Hindus and Muslims against each other. The plot is set in Gujarat (after the 2002 Riots). The communal hatred is at peak. It can be seen when we find Hindu mob chasing Javed and Bobby after knowing that they are Muslims.

    Next, we also come to know other complex stories like love affair of Smita (who is a Hindu) and Bobby, Javed’s story of adopting extremist way, Ramanik’s grabbing of Javed’s land (after burning his shop) etc.

    We find that Ramanik blames Javed and his community and vice versa. But deep inside, Ramanik’s conscience does not allow him to live in peace because of the sin which he committed in the past.

    There is another issue which is discussed in the play. It is the orthodoxy which is inherited among the believers of every religion. They consider people from other communities as untouchables. Aruna’s denying Bobby and Javed from spending night at their home depicts this.

    So, throughout the play, we find ample of problems and the playwright has not given any solution. Instead, he has let the audience to decide. Hence, the final solutions are, in real, no solutions to these communal problems. We people need to know what makes us hate others.
