SECTION III : POETRY

Q3. (A) Read the following extract and do the activities:

This fatal likeness even dogged

My footsteps, when at school,

And I was always getting flogged,

For John turned out a fool.

I put this question, fruitlessly,

To everyone I knew,

What would you do, if you were me,

To prove that you were you?

Out close resemblance turned the tide

Of my domestic life,

For somehow, my intended bride

Became my brother’s wife.

In fact, year after year the same

Absurd mistakes went on,

And when I died, the neighbours came

And buried brother John.

If

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, not talk too wise :

If you can dream and not make dreams your master;

If you can think and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two imposters just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth, you’ve spoken,

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,

And stoop and build, poem up with worn-out tools :

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings, nor lose the common touch;

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

And which is more you’ll be a Man, may son !

-Rudyard Kipling

SECTION IV:NON-TEXTUAL PASSAGE

Q.4. (A) Read the following passage and do the activities:

This is a brief review of the career of a women who nearly 100 years ago opened the eyes of the world to the new science of nursing. We know her as Florence Nightingale, but to the soldiers she was better known as the Angel of Crimea or simply as the Lady of the Lamp.

Florence Nightingale was born 125 years ago in Florence, Italy. Unlike so many of our other pioneers, she was the daughter of wealthy English parents and reared more or less in luxury. As a young woman, she became somewhat of a problem to her parents. They saw she was not happy in being just a young lady of fashion. She had, what was to them, an unheal thy and unnatural interest in Nursing. Nursing in those days was far from what we know today. A hundred years ago the majority of hospitals were centers of misery, suffering and in too many cases, dirt.

But, despite all this, Florence still wanted to be a nurse, and finally persuaded her parents to let her attend the Deaconess Training School at Kaiserwerth in Germany. For two years she studied and worked under rigorous conditions but instead of being discouraged, she wrote her mother. “This is Life! I wish for no other world but this.” About this time, the Crimean War between England and Russia broke out and a vicious battle was fought on the little Black Sea Peninsula. The British were victorious but the joy at home was shortlived. Resorts began to filter back to London of the terrific loss of life-not so much on the battlefield but in the military hospitals. In fact, over 400 out of every thousand in the hospitals were dying. Sidney Herbert, British Secretary at War and friend of the Nightingales, was at a loss as to just what to do until he thought of Florence. And she, in turn, saw this as just the chance for which she had been waiting. So, after carefully collecting a large store of supplies, she arrived at the battlefront in November 1854 with her 38 nurses just after the Battle of Balaklava.

Lady with a Lamp

Florence Nightingale, born in Florence, was a problem for her parents as she didn’t want to be a fashionable young lady. Her parents did not support her interest in nursing as the hospitals then were full of misery, suffering and dirt. Still she convinced her parents and after working for two years rigorously she was contented. During the Crimean War, there was a great loss of life. Florence got the much awaited chance. She collected supplies and went to the battlefront. So the soldiers knew her as the Angel of Crimea.

(B2) “Say no to Polybags”

Respected teachers and my dear friends.

It’s a great pleasure to talk to you all as the secretary of the Environment Club on the occasion of World Environment Day. Today, I take this opportunity to appeal to everybody present here to make efforts to save the environment.

Though, the government has put a ban on polybags, we are still using them. They are very harmful for this earth and the environment. These bags when thrown
away, remain in the environment for a very long time and keep on releasing toxic gases in the atmosphere. As a result there is an urgent need to find an appropriate alternative for polybags and start using it.

We should start carrying paper bags or cloth bags whenever we are going out for shopping. As responsible citizens, we should start taking the initiative and let others follow it. We should think about the disastrous impact it can have on our earth and the environment.

So I appeal to all of you to join hands to keep our earth clean. Thank you all!

A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

The proverbial expression is quite meaningful. Those who are our true friends stand by us in joys, in sorrows as well as difficulties and help us in every way possible. A
true friend is recognised during hardships or tough conditions. Those who swarm around just for the sake of pleasure usually leave in difficult times.

Ram was a rich merchant. His business kept on flourishing. He had a group of ten friends and they used to enjoy life together. Once during the rainy season, there were fierce floods everywhere and Ram’s shops were destroyed. All his friends left him in his ruin and none showed readiness to help him except Umesh. Umesh rushed to save whatever was possible from the shops. Later he even offered some money to Ram to start his business once again after five years. Ram once again started doing good business and realised the meaning of true friendship.

It clearly shows that adversity makes only true friends stay with us. Adverse conditions help realise the worth of our friends. True friends are our true wealth.

Schools Encourage Kids to Take Up Reading

Pune, August 19, 20xx

All the leading schools of Pune are taking great efforts to encourage the kids going to schools to start reading books to collect a vast store of information by establishing new equipped libraries full of books and introducing supervised reading period in their schedule.

The authorities of many schools conducted a meeting last month for finding solution for kids who have not taken up reading. Quick decisions were not just taken but implemented rapidly. Many schools have allocated new rooms for libraries and special funds were also created to fill them with variety of books, journals and magazines. Then a special period of one hour was introduced in the schedule of the schools and special teachers were appointed to supervise the reading periods. Various workshops and lectures were organised to make children understand the importance of reading and also to know what they should read and why. As a result many children are seen reading religiously in the libraries and are asking thought-provoking questions to their teachers on various subjects. This is a good change taking place due to the initiative implemented by school authorities.
