In the poem an elementary school classroom in slum
1. What does want to suggest from the dream about the squirrel in the trees.
2.on the cream walls hung the donation given by rich people. What is it significance

Dear student,

1. The children in the slum live in a bleak, dingy world. The young boy had acquired his father's diseases. His eyes dream of living in a world and experiencing the things that the books talk about. He dreams of squirrel's games in a tree rather than the present reality he is condemned to live in.
2. The dirty cream walls are a symbol of the decaying world that the children live in. In contrast, the pictures on the walls that are donated by rich people have beautiful domes, resplendent buildings, world maps. The glaring difference in the two worlds is evident.
