He could run, run, run, run! The woman was sitting on the daybed. After a while she said, “I were young once and wanted things I could not get.” There was another long pause. The boy’s mouth opened. Then he frowned, not knowing he frowned.”
“2. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

In another corner of the room behind a screen was a gas plate and an icebox. Mrs. Jones got up and went behind the screen. The woman did not watch the boy to see if he was going to run now, nor did she watch her purse, which she had left behind her on the daybed. But the boy took care to sit on the far side of the room, away from the purse, where he thought she could easily see him out of the corner of her eye (نظر بچاکر)if she wanted to. He did not trust the woman not to trust him. And he did not want o be mistrusted now.”
“3. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

She was a large woman with a large purse that had everything in it but a hammer and nails. It had a long strap, and she carried it slung across her shoulder. It was about eleven o’ clock at night, dark, and she was walking alone, when a boy ran up behind her and tried to snatch her purse. The strap broke with a sudden single tug the boy gave it from behind. But the boy’s weight and the weight of the purse combined caused him to lose his balance.”
“4. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

Sweat popped out on the boy’s face and he began to struggle. Mrs. Jones stopped, jerked him around in front of her, put a half nelson about his neck, and continued to drag him up the street.

The boy could hear other roomers laughing and talking in the large house. Some of their doors were open, too, so he knew he and the woman were not alone. The woman still held him by the neck in the middle of her room.”
