NCERT Class 8 English Solutions for Exercise Think about it in Chapter 3 - Chapter-3 The Selfish Giant

Question 8 Think about it
  1. The little child’s hands and feet had marks of nails. Who does the child remind you of? Give a reason for your answer.

The marks of nails on the little child’s hands reminds us of Jesus Christ. When the Giant met the child for the second time, he noticed the imprints of nails on the little boy’s palms and feet. This made the Giant angry and he cried out loudly asking who had done such harm to the little boy. If we remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, it reminds us that there were similar nail imprints on his palms and feet. He had sacrificed his life for the sake of humanity and he had also forgiven those who caused him such pain and dishonour. Similarly, the little boy in the story told the Giant that these marks were the wounds of love.
