1 SISTERS - Saleem Peeradina The Poem is about two sisters described fondly by their father, who is the persona of the poem. The speaker draws a clear picture of the younger daughter but the picture of the elder daughter can be inferred from the poem.

3  One of the sisters is not yet quite ten years old but she is ahead of the other, the younger one, by five years.  The difference is always going to remain.  The elder of the two is at the receiving end most of the times and always it is she who is blamed.  Even as she withdraws into a simmering silence, she stands her ground knowing too well that her father is being unfair.

4  The lesson is how to overcome fathers and challenge their authority, and by extension the authority of all elders.  Saleem Peeradina shows how youngsters feel and understand the behaviour of the grown- ups, even though they remain silent about it.  It is difficult to generalize the behaviour of these three characters but the younger children are not always as described in the poem.  The advice to the elders and the behaviour of the parents are normally the same everywhere.
