Read the passage given below carefully and answer Question numbers 96 to 100 based on it.

        Dilip Chitre (b. 1938) was educated in Baroda and Mumbai. He has been a teacher, painter, film-maker and magazine columnist. A winner of the Sahitya Akademi Award, Chitre has lived and taught in Ethiopia and the USA and was invited to participate in the Iowa University International Writing Programme. He is a bilingual writer and writes mostly in Marathi. His major translations (from Marathi into English) include An Anthology of Marathi Poetry, (19451965) and Says Tuka (1991). Travelling in a Cage (1980) is his first and only book of English poems. Exile, alienation, self-disintegration and death are the major themes in Chitre's poetry. It belongs essentially to the Modernist Movement, as it reflects cosmopolitan culture, an urban sensibility, uses oblique expressions and ironic tones.
        'Father Returning Home', selected from Travelling in a Cage, is a deftly drawn word portrait of a commuter and his dull, drab and exhausting daily routine. Forced to return to stale food and painful isolation at home, the pathetic old man has no choice but to talk to himself. He is delinked from the present, including his family, and can only communicate with the buried past and unborn future dreaming about his ancestors and grandchildren. Characteristically, the poem is totally devoid of sentimentality despite its tender subject. The evocative imagery, subtle irony and the symbolic projection of the commuter as a modern nomad are the major devices which reinforce the theme of man's estrangement from a man-made world.
