What is the personification in Mending Wall by Robert Frost?

Technically, there is no personification (endowing non-human things with human qualities) in "Mending Wall".

It may be argued that there is one instance where the narrator of the poem is implying that the stones being replaced have the ability to hear and understand like humans:

And some are loaves and some so nearly balls

We have to use a spell to make them balance:

'Stay where you are until our backs are turned!' However, the words being spoken here are part of a "spell," and it isn't likely that it's being taken very seriously. These lines are jocular in tone, and it's unlikely that the narrator imagines the stones hearing him.

Later in the poem, the narrator says that his apple trees will never cross the property boundary to eat his neighbor's fallen pine cones. That is not personification. The implication is that his apple trees are not like cows, and cannot do his neighbor's property any damage.

How do you make up your own similes?

To make up your own similes, you need to think of how something can or is like something else. For example, rabbits can be fluffy like clouds. To make a simile out of that, you could say that the rabbit was as fluffy as a cloud. If something makes you happy, and you think the sun is happy, you would say you are as happy as the sun.

How old is the Grim Reaper?

Since the Grim Reaper is a symbolic character for death, then he is probably as old as life.

It all depends on what you believe. In the christian sense god did not have death until after Adam and eve were turned out of the garden of Eden. Some believe in the story of the Frog and the Toad, where god gave the frog a jar that contained death, and left it with him for safe keeping. Toad broke the jar one day and death was unleashed. Others believe it was when Satan was cast to rule in hell when he was banished from heaven. Of course, if you don't take the religious route, death has been alive since the dinosaurs haha :P

Could you provide an example for sensex calculation?

Example (provided by rediff.com reader Munish Oberoi):Source: http://www.rediff.com/money/2008/feb/21bspec.htm Suppose the Index consists of only 2 stocks: Stock A and Stock B. Suppose company A has 1,000 shares in total, of which 200 are held by the promoters, so that only 800 shares are available for trading to the general public. These 800 shares are the so-called 'free-floating' shares. Similarly, company B has 2,000 shares in total, of which 1,000 are held by the promoters and the rest 1,000 are free-floating. Now suppose the current market price of stock A is Rs 120. Thus, the 'total' market capitalisation of company A is Rs 120,000 (1,000 x 120), but its free-float market capitalisation is Rs 96,000 (800 x 120). Similarly, suppose the current market price of stock B is Rs 200. The total market capitalisation of company B will thus be Rs 400,000 (2,000 x 200), but its free-float market cap is only Rs 200,000 (1,000 x 200). So as of today the market capitalisation of the index (i.e. stocks A and B) is Rs 520,000 (Rs 120,000 + Rs 400,000); while the free-float market capitalisation of the index is Rs 296,000. (Rs 96,000 + Rs 200,000). The year 1978-79 is considered the base year of the index with a value set to 100. What this means is that suppose at that time the market capitalisation of the stocks that comprised the index then was, say, 60,000 (remember at that time there may have been some other stocks in the index, not A and B, but that does not matter), then we assume that an index market cap of 60,000 is equal to an index-value of 100. Thus the value of the index today is = 296,000 x 100/60,000 = 493.33 This is how the Sensex is calculated. The factor 100/60000 is called index divisor.

What does the idiomatic expression you re my sidekick mean?

I'm from Wyoming, and have spent many hours working horses. Like many such expressions that have become woven into the American cultural fabric, I believe the term "sidekick" derives from the "cowboy culture" so admired and romanticized by those who have never worked as one. Anyone who has ever spent time working cattle from horseback knows that, hundreds of times a day, you nudge (or "kick", for urgent maneuvers) your mount in the sides to steer this way or that, because your hands are busy elsewhere. You yourself become a "sidekicker". Working cattle is not for sissies, and cowboys sustain all kinds of minor injuries just in a normal day's work. You can get seriously injured or even killed if you aren't alert and working together as a team. Cowboys working cattle together learn to depend on the other "sidekicks" to help control and direct a herd. Your "sidekicks" become the people you work hard with, get to know and depend on, and develop special bonds based on trust.
