21. ‘If I was a Tree’ is a satire on social discrimination. It criticises the discrimination on the basis of caste and creed. Being tired and humiliated by the social discrimination the poet wishes to be a tree. He feels safety purity and generosity and helping nature in the tree than in human beings.

Having a desire to be a tree he desires to escape to a better world from a world of ill-treatment. He says that being a tree is far more convenient than being a human. Then the bird wouldn’t ask what caste it is and sunlight would embrace it.

Its shadow would not be polluted. It can make friendship with cool breeze and rain drops would not go back thinking if he was an untouchable. The tree would feel happy with the touch of sacred cow and it would get the opportunity of providing shelter for three hundred thousand Gods.

The tree can become pure if it would be cut into dry pieces and can help the sinless dead body by becoming bier on the shoulders of four good men.


Education remained the privilege of the wealthy. The underprivileged of society did not have the dreams of being educated and coming up in life. They took menial tasks as the fate written on their forehead. However, the scenario is different now.

The initiative of intellectuals, social workers and the government, has resulted in the progress of the downtrodden and people belonging to the lower rungs of society are encouraged to be educated.

Special scholarships are offered to the economically backward sections and backward castes. There is a transformation in the whole educational set-up and we are moving slowly but surely towards an egalitarian society where all have equal opportunities for education and the underprivileged sections.

But, a man has no money, society condemns them to humiliation and eventually death. However, mankind does not deprive such people of food. It gives them food but along with food it also gives them suffering, humiliation and cruelty. This fear of getting humiliated and subjected to cruelty if they do not earn enough money makes people mad about money. That is why people crave for money so that they are not made to eat dirt.

The poet remarks that such an attitude of mankind towards those who do not have money is wrong. The poet suggests that we should regain our sanity in this regard. Otherwise, this collective madness for money will make us kill one another. He asserts that ‘bread, shelter and fire’ which are essential for survival, should be made available free of cost and without humiliation to anyone and everyone all over the world irrespective of whether a person has money or not.
