  1. 1. “Of White Hairs & Cricket, Essay” [​Choice one:​Explore how the writer of “Of White Hairs and Cricket” deals with the passing of time.] In the story, “Of white hairs and cricket” the author, Rohinton Mistry, deals with the passing of time. The title directly tackles the theme of the story. On the one hand, this is a story of passing of time because the narrator's father was getting old. This kid doesn’t understand why he is put to do such an awful duty as taking out the white hairs off his father’s head. Later on, he realised that his father was getting old. The writer shows, as the first sign of insurrection in the story, that the child rebels against his father because he wants to spend his befitting time on something of his own interest. “I put the tweezers down and reached for the comics”, in this quote we can see his rebellion and also, that the boy can not understand what is going on yet. On the other hand, this is a story of passing of time because the kid realised that due to his father’s old age, he stopped doing an activity which he really enjoyed, cricket. He remembered that his father was not playing cricket anymore, because he was very tired. Thenceforward, one day, he went to Viraf's house, and he saw his father really ill, in bed. This is a specular moment, in which he realised that his father was growing old. From that day on, he wanted to take all his father’s white hairs off to stop him from growing old, and eventually dying. Because he wanted to spend more time with him. The kid loves what he used to hate!
  2. 2. To conclude, the writer of “Of White Hairs and Cricket” deals with the passing of time, because of all the arguments given before. By: Flor Claps and Juana Pérez Muñiz Mark: 8
