NCERT Solutions for Class 9 Hindi Kshitij Chapter 16 Direction of Yamraj
(from the textbook)
Why did the poet never find it difficult to go south?
Telling about the mother that the house of Yamraj, the god of death, is in the south direction, it is never difficult for the writer to go to the south direction.
Why did the poet say that it was not possible to cross the south?
The earth is round. This is no Final Four. Therefore, crossing the south direction is not possible.

Today, goons, scoundrels and murderers have appeared everywhere in the society. They can commit murder from anywhere. Therefore, the south direction is not the only direction of death.
The feeling is clear –
Yamraj has palaces in all directions
and all of them together
sits with his blazing eyes
It was believed by tradition that the residence of Yamraj, the god of death, is in the south direction, hence death occurs in the south direction. But in today’s society murder can happen from anywhere. They live in luxurious palaces everywhere. It is difficult to identify them. They kill and go away, so we also stay there, wherever we put our feet and sleep, we are worried.
