Section A : Reading
Read the following passage and answer the questions 6 x 2 = 12 Marks

1.a)I can still remember my first encounter with the fear of supernatural. I was about 8 years old and my younger brother Sonu was 7. We lived in Meghalaya – a really beautiful part of India, and this was long before civilization really came to that part of the country. We were allotted a huge bungalow, complete with outhouse and servants quarters and sprawling lawns. The net result was that we were isolated from the hoi polloi .

It was about mid June, on a Saturday, my brother and I had just finished dinner. Our parents had gone to the club when it started raining in earnest. Father rang up to tell us that they would not be driving home in the storm and that we should lock the house up from inside after informing the guards. Now this left us alone in the huge house in the middle of what appeared to us in the night like a huge jungle. All of a sudden, there was a huge crack of lightning and the power failed. I was in my bed at that time – and started quaking with fear. My younger brother came running into my room absolutely terrified. Dee … dee, can I sleep with you ?

Now I could not admit that I was scared too. So like a very brave elder sister … I took charge. I smiled and told him “Sure, but let’s play knots and crosses”, a game he hated and I was addicted to. He agreed making a face. Both of us together lit a lamp, got out our pencils and some paper and started playing. As time went by, it was more like a night without parents and we were savouring our independence. We took the lamp and went to the kitchen, got ourselves some cookies, chips and sodas, and had a party. Then we sat down to laugh and discuss the daily happenings in school. The fear receded and we felt very brave and grown up – two children in a 7 bedroom house all alone. We both pretended that it was quite okay and together we could face anything. Soon the oil in the lamp went down and the wick needed trimming, the lamp-light became dim. So we decided that we should sleep together and got into my bed for the night.

There was a loud crash followed by a huge earthquake that woke us up. All pretence at bravery was over. The lamp had gone out and we did not even know what time it was. On the top of that, we could not find the matches. I had started crying and it was Sonu’s turn to be the brave macho brother. Both of us held hands, I was holding the lamp and we walked to the kitchen, Sonu leading the way. That walk is etched in my memory – a wooden floor with creaky floor boards, an open window slamming again and again in the storm, and tree branches rustling and groaning in the storm. We never reached the kitchen. We had reached the living room, which overlooked the boundary wall of the bungalow lawns – about a mile away. From the distance we could see the wall on and off in the flickering lightening. And all our fears were realized !!!! On the wall looking straight at us in the flickering light were two heads. I forgot all reserves and started wailing. The lamp slipped and fell out of my hands and broke. Sonu somehow managed to hold on to me and take me to the two seater sofa close by. Both of us sat down on the sofa with our eyes focused on the wall. We could not take our eyes away from the two people peering at us. I whispered to Sonu “Shall we scream for the guards” , Sonu did not even waste a minute and started yelling “Chowkidaar, chowkidaar” but most probably the guards were sitting inside the room, away from the cold rain and could not hear the screams of a terrified 7 year old boy. I had lost my voice and could not say anything – all efforts brought just a quavering “Help … bachao” from me.

Both of us kept sitting on the couch – our horrified eyes fixed on the heads that were looking at us menacingly all through the night. After a while, the tears and fear took its toll on us and we drifted into an uneasy sleep, cuddled into each other. I woke up with a start in the morning, weak sunbeams lighting up the room …. Our parents had just come home. Father and Mother came in to the house and saw us both on the couch, and woke us up. We had eyes for nothing but the boundary wall. What we saw had us speechless. Some one had apparently picked up coconuts from the palms growing near the gate, and placed on the wall were two halved coconut shells, and we had actually spent the entire night petrified because of two coconut shells.

1 What does the child remember about the bungalow? 2
2. What happened as result of lightning? What was the children’s reaction? 2
3. Why did Sonu agree to play knots and crosses? 2
4. How did the children enjoy the night without parents? 2
5. How were all pretences of bravery over? 2
6. When did the truth about the ghost come to light? 2

This is a poem by war poet - Siegfred Sassoon. It describes the atmosphere when peace was finally declared after WW2 , so evocatively...


Everyone suddenly burst out singing;
And I was filled with such delight
As prisoned birds must find in freedom,
Winging wildly across the white
Orchards and dark-green fields; on--on--and out of sight.

Everyone's voice was suddenly lifted;

My heart was shaken with tears; and horror
Drifted away...O, but Everyone
Was a bird; and the song was wordless; the singing will never be done.

Section A: Reading
Max. Marks : 20

Read the passage given below and then answer the questions which follow: 12 marks

1 In spite of all the honours that we heaped upon him, Pasteur, as has been said, remained simple at heart. Perhaps the imagery of his boyhood days, when he drew the familiar scenes of his birthplace, and the longing to be a great artist, never wholly left him. In truth he did become a great artist, though after his sixteenth year he abandoned the brush for ever. Like every artist of worth, he put his whole soul and energy into his work, and it was this very energy that in the end wore him out. For to him, each sufferer was something more than just a case that was to be cured. He looked upon the fight against hydrophobia as a battle, and he was absorbed in his determination to win. The sight of injured children, particularly, moved him to an indescribable extent. He suffered with his patients, and yet he would not deny himself a share in that suffering. His greatest grief was when sheer physical exhaustion made him give up his active work. He retired to the estate at Villeneuve Etang, where he had his kennels for the study of rabies, and there he passed his last summer, as his great biographer, Vallery Radot, has said, “practicing the Gospel virtues.”

2 “He revered the faith of his fathers, “says the same writer, “and wished without ostentation or mystery to receive its aid during his last period.”

3 The attitude of this man to the science he had done so much to perfect can be best summed up in a sentence that he is reputed once to have uttered, concerning the materialism of many of his contemporaries in similar branches of learning to his own: “The more I contemplate the mysteries of Nature, the more my faith becomes like that of a peasant.”

4 But even then in retirement he loved to see his former pupils, and it was then he would reiterate his life principles: “Work, “ he would say, “never cease to work.” So well had he kept this precept that he began rapidly to sink from exhaustion.

5 Finally on September 27, 1895, when someone leant over his bed to offer him a cup of milk, he said sadly: “I cannot, “ and with a look of perfect resignation and peace, seemed to fall asleep. He never again opened his eyes to the cares and sufferings of a world, which he had done so much to relieve and to conquer. He was within three months of his seventy-third birthday.

6 Thus passed, as simply as a child, the man whom the French people were to vote at a plebiscite as the greatest man that France had ever produced. Napoleon, who has always been considered the idol of France, was placed fifth.

7 No greater tribute could have been paid to Louis Pasteur, the tanner’s son, the scientist, the man of peace, the patient worker for humanity.

1.1 Answer the following questions:

a. Even accolades and honours did not change the simple man that Pasteur was. Why? 2 marks
b. How did Pasteur view those who suffered from diseases? 1 mark
c. How did Pasteur engage himself in the estate? 2 marks
d. What advice did he always give to his pupils? 2 marks
e. How did France, the country of his birth, honour this great scientist? 2 marks

1.2 Find the words from the passage which mean the same as: 3 marks

a. To give up (para 1)
b. People belonging to the same period (para 3)
c. Vote by the people of the country to decide a matter of national importance (para 6)

Question 2. Read the passage given below: 8 marks

Residents of the Bhirung Raut Ki Gali, where Ustad Bishmillah Khan was born on March 21, 1916, were in shock. His cousin, 94-year -old Mohd Idrish Khan had tears in his eyes. Shubhan Khan, the care-taker of Bismillah’s land, recalled : “Whenever in Dumaraon, he would give rupees two to the boys and rupees five to the girls of the locality”.

He was very keen to play shehnai again in the local Bihariji’s Temple where he had started playing shehnai with his father, Bachai Khan, at the age of six. His original name was Quamaruddin and became Bishmillah only after he became famous as a shehnai player in Varanasi.

His father Bachai Khan was the official shehnai player of Keshav Prasad Singh, the Maharaja of the erstwhile Dumaraon estate, Bismillah used to accompany him. For Bishmillah Khan, the connection to music began at a very early age. By his teens, he had already become a master of the shehnai. On the day India gained freedom, Bismillah Khan, then a sprightly 31 year-old, had the rare honour of playing from Red Fort. But Bishmillah Khan won’t just be remembered for elevating the shehnai from an instrument heard only in weddings and naubatkhanas to one that was appreciated in concert halls across the world. His life was a testimony to the plurality that is India. A practicing Muslim, he would take a daily dip in the Ganga in his younger days after a bout of kusti in Benia Baga Akhada. Every morning, Bishmillah Khan would do riyaaz at the Balaji temple on the banks of the river. Even during his final hours in a Varanasi hospital, music didn’t desert Bishmillah Khan. A few hours before he passed away early on Monday, the shehnai wizard hummed a thumri to show that he was feeling better. This was typical of a man for whom life revolved around music.

Throughout his life he abided by the principle that all religions are one. What marked Bishmillah Khan was his simplicity and disregard for the riches that come with musical fame. Till the very end, he used a cycle rickshaw to travel around Varanasi. But the pressure of providing for some 60 family members took its toll during his later years.
