NBSE Class 11 English Chapter 2: No Men are Foreign

Through the poem “No Men are Foreign” the poet James Kirkup tried to make the people of the world, irrespective of nation, race, ethnicity etc. to understand that despite the differences, all of us are at the end the same. We feel the same emotions and breath the same air. We live in the same world and when we die, we are buried in the same soil. But most often than not we don’t understand or rather focus on the aspects that connect us and instead concentrate on our insignificant differences, creating enmity. This enmity eventually leads to the defilement of the Earth.
