    I still recall how Prof Dasgupta had explained this poem to us in our English Literature class at the Presidency College, Calcutta! He had made this poem alive before our eyes! This poem once again illustrates that the opinion we have/
    express about others, merely reflect our own thoughts & prejudices - majority of the time! Rating of this poem should be nothing less than 20/10!
