Mr. Grasshopper, mentioned in the main textbook, symbolizes an idle man in society. The writer has presented the real nature of an idle man through a vivid description of his imaginary being, Mr. Grasshopper. An idle man always eats, sleeps and sings. He thinks he has a lot of time to spare. He dislikes others who work hard like Mr. Ant. He laughs at Mr. Ant for working hard. He always sings a song at leisure out of happiness. He never thinks of future life. He always spends time in merry-making. Many a time, Mr. Grasshopper prevents Mr. Ant from working in the field. He tells to find one to enjoy one’s companionship. But the future of Mr. Grasshopper is dark.
