Question 1. Why did the children go to Yasmin Khala’s house?

Answer: While playing in the street, children broke the street light. They were upset and went to Rehana’s mother for advice. She told them that Municipal Corporation takes care for the replacement of the lights and Yasmin Khala recently retired from the Municipal Corporation so can tell better about the person for the maintenance of the street lights.

Question 2. List four ways in which the work of the Municipal Corporation affects the life of a city-dweller.

Answer: The work of the Municipal corporation affect the life of a city- dwellers in the following ways :

  1. It takes care of garbage collection.
  2. Supply of electricity and water.
  3. Maintenance of drainage system.
  4. Construction and maintenance of street lights, roads etc.

Question 3. Who is a Municipal Councillor?

Answer: A Municipal Councillor is an elected representative of the ward. He is also known as a ward councilor. They are elected for a fixed tenure of the five years but can be removed.

Question 4. What did Gangabai do and why?

Answer: Gangabai decided to go to Ward Councillor with her neighbours to inform them about the condition of the street.
She did that as there was garbage here and there all over the street and this was attracting mosquitoes, flies, dogs, and rats in the locality.

Question 5. List four ways in which the work of the Municipal Corporation affects the life of a city-dweller.

Answer: The Municipal Corporation earns the money to do its work in the following ways:

  1.  Property tax on house, land etc
  2. Tax on trade and business
  3. Fees on water facilities, electricity facilities.
  4. Income and rent earned from the institutions, property like the buildings, markets etc.

Question 6. Discuss In the two photographs you see different ways of collecting and disposing of garbage.

  1. Which way do you think provides safety to the person disposing of garbage?
  2. What are the dangers of collecting garbage in the manner shown in the first photograph?
  3. Why do you think that proper ways of disposing of garbage are not available to those who work in municipalities?

Answer : 

  1.  As shown in photo 2, it provides safety to the person disposing of garbage.
  2. In the first photograph, people collecting garbage might get injured or infected and may fall ill.
  3. This may be due to the lack of fund or careless behaviour of the officials and workers.

Question 7. Several poor people in the city work as domestic servants as well as work for the Corporation, keeping the city clean. Yet the slums in which they live are filthy. This is because these slums seldom have any water and sanitation facilities.
The reason often given by the Municipal Corporation is that the land in which the poor have set up their homes does not belong to them and that slum-dwellers do not pay taxes. However, people living in middle-class neighbourhoods pay very little in taxes compared to the amount of money the corporation spends on them in setting up parks, street lighting facilities, regular garbage collection etc. Also as you read in this chapter, the property taxes collected by the Municipality makes up only 25-30 percent of its money. Why do you think it is important that the Corporation should spend more money on slum localities? Why is it important that the Municipal Corporation provide the poor in the city with the same facilities that the rich get?

Answer: It is important that the Corporation should spend more money on slum localities because:

  1. The government should spend money on slum areas as they are also a part of society. If the Corporation do not provide them equal facilities then it is a discrimination on the basis of economic condition.
  2. The people living there contribute a lot for the society and also a major work population like domestic servants, workers and cleaners.
