SECTION -I: PROSE

 

(Reading for Comprehension, Language Study, Summary and Mind Mapping)

 

Q. 1. (A) Read the extract and complete the activities given below: (12) [16]

   At a corner of Sixth Avenue electric lights and cunningly displayed wares behind plate glass made a shop window attractive. Soapy took a stone and dashed it through the glass. People came running round the corner, a policeman in the lead. Soapy stood still with his hands in his pockets, and smiled at the sight of brass buttons.

“Where’s the man that done that?” inquired the officer agitatedly.

“Don’t you think that I might have had something to do with it?” said Soapy, with a friendly voice, as one greets good fortune.

The policeman refused to accept Soapy even as a clue. Men who smash windows do not remain to chat with the police. They take to their heels. The policeman saw a man half-way down the block running to catch a car. With drawn club he joined in the pursuit. Soapy, with disgust in his heart, drifted along, twice unsuccessful.

On the opposite side of the street was a restaurant of no great pretensions. It catered to large appetites and modest purses. Its crockery and atmosphere were thick; its soup and napery thin. Into this place Soapy betook himself without challenge. At a table he sat and consumed beefsteak, flapjacks, doughnuts and pie. And then he told the waiter the fact that the minutest coin and himself were total strangers.

“Now, get busy and call a cop”, said Soapy. “And don’t keep a gentleman waiting.”

“No cop for you,” said the waiter, with a voice like butter cakes and an eye like the cherry in the Manhattan cocktail. “Hey, Con!”

Neatly upon his left ear on the callous pavement two waiters pitched Soapy. He arose, joint by joint, as a carpenter’s rule opens, and dusted his clothes. Arrest seemed now but an elusive dream. The island seemed very far away. A policeman who stood before a drugstore two doors away laughed and walked down the street.

Q.2. (A) Read the extract and complete the activities given below: (12) [18]

"I don't believe in taking the right decisions. I take decisions, I take decisions and then make them right." One of them make them right. One of the Ratan Tata's inspiring words which made me dream beyond shadows. I feel fortunate that I discovered him in the early stage of my life and now I am using his teachings to mould my future the way I want.

Even though Ratan Tata was born in a very posh family of India, he never took money and power for granted. He graduated from Riverdale country from New York, Ratan Tata began his career in the Tata Group working on the shop floor of Tata Steel. After working for almost 10 years he was appointed as the director-in-charge of the National Radio and Electronics Company Limited (NEL.CO) in order to help its struggling finances. He worked hard building a better consumer electronics division but the economic recession and union strikes prevented him from achieving success and this success helped Tata to be appointed as the chairman of the Tata Group of companies. He started with a very basic job in his father's company and today he owns a billion-dollar company.

The tag of greatness does not come without making any sacrifices and this tag on Ratan Tata suits to its best.

Tata group launched its passenger car Tata Indica in the year 1998 but Tata Indica was a failure in its first year and the experiment seemed to be failing. Many people started advising Ratan Tata that sell the passenger car business. Ratan Tata also agreed to this and a proposal was given to Ford, they showed interest too. The three -hour meeting at Ford headquarters in Detroit, chairman of Ford (Bill Ford) said to Ratan Tata, "why did you enter in the passenger car business when you were not knowing of it. It will be a favour if we buy this business from you."

         Ratan Tata decided to move back home. While 4avellimg he was very tense as the feeling of being insulted was on his mind. After earlier failures, Tata Motors did well with its business of passenger cars but in the same period, Ford did very bad. In 2008 when Ford was on its way of bankruptcy, Tata Group offered Ford to buy its luxury car brand, Jaguar Land Rover. P Ford arrived in Mumbai for the meeting. In the meeting, Bill Ford said to Ratan Tata, you are doing a big favour for us by buying- Jaguar-Land Rover is now owned by Tata Group and is currently making profits.

(a) He was appointed as the Director-in-charge of the National Radio and Electronics Company Limited.

(b) Tata Group launched its passenger car 'Tata Indica' in the

(c) Bill Ford said to Ratan Tata, "You are doing a big favour for us by buying Jaguar-Land Rover."

(d) He graduated from Riverdale country from New York.

A2. Explain: (2)

The writer says, "I don't believe in taking right decisions, I take decisions and then make them right."

A3. Give reasons: (2)

Ratan Tata decided to sell his passenger car business.

A4. Personal Response (2)

Right decision at the right time is important for success. Express your opinion.

A5. Grammar: Do as directed. (2)

Henceforth I whimper no more, postpone no more, need nothing,

Done with indoor complaints, libraries, querulous criticisms,

Strong and content I travel the open road.

I do not want the constellations any nearer,

I know they are very well where they are,

I know they suffice for those who belong to them.

Is anybody happier because you passed his way?

      Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you?

 

Did you give a cheerful greeting to the friend who came along?

      Or a churlish sort of "Howdy" and then vanish in the throng?

Were you selfish pure and simple as you rushed along the way,

      Or is someone mighty grateful for a deed you did today?

 

Can you say tonight, in parting with the day that's slipping fast,

     That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed?

Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said;

     Does a man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead?

Points:

(i) Title of the poem, name of the poet.

(ii) Theme

(iii) Poetic devices, language

(iv) Values

(v) Your opinion about the poem.
