Ans -2 The most common figure of speech in Subramania Bharati's "Wind" is Anaphora. The repetition of the word "don't" in the first three lines of the poem is an example of Anaphora. Another figure of speech that can be found lies in the method in which the poem has been written. There is a sense of continuous movement.  Finally, the entire poem is a Metaphor, because it ends on a note of application to humanity to stand against all ravages natural or man-made. She asks the reader to be firm of heart, steadfast and it is an appeal to humanity as a whole. Thus, on the final few lines of the poem the figure of speech, Metaphor can be used. 

Ans -3
In Bharati's poem, the wind is a destructive force. The wind is meant to wreak havoc which leads him to exhort people to fortify themselves. It functions as a spiritual entity with awe-inspiring power.  Bharati seems to have an insightful take on the wind, he realises the destructive force of the wind but also holds out hope that it is possible to befriend it and not just live in dread of its power. The poem is an attempt to understand human mortality and fragility in the face of nature's permanence and strength.
