Question 12

Discuss the major regrets of the slain soldier in “Strange Meeting”.


The soldier regrets:

  1. his undone years; i.e. his lost years;
  2. his lost opportunity of experiencing love and making people laugh;
  3. his failure to fulfil his life’s aspiration of changing the world through honest

labour and humane deeds;

  1. that men will continue to agonize and fight each other continually;
  2. that he has no other option now, but to rest; etc.
Most of the candidates attempted the question and their performance was fair.
