Long Walk to Freedom

1. That day had come about through the unimaginable sacrifices of thousands of my people, people whose suffering and courage can never be counted or repaid. I felt that day, as I have on so many other days, that I was simply the sum of all those African patriots who had gone before me. That long and noble line ended and now began again with me. I was pained that I was not able to thank them and that they were not able to see what their sacrifices had wrought.
 
Questions :

a) Which occasion is the speaker talking about?

b) What did the people of South Africa suffer from ?

c) What does Nelson Mandela consider himself to be?

d) Which word in the passage is synonym of ‘bravery’?

2. My country is rich in the minerals and gems that lie beneath its soil, but

I have always known that its great wealth is its people, finer and truer than the purest diamonds. It is from these comrades in struggle that I learned the meaning of courage. Time and again I have seen men and women risk and give their lives for an idea. I have seen men stand up to attacks and  torture without breaking, showing a strength and resilience that defies the imagination.

Questions :

a)What opinion does the writer has about the people of his country? 

b) When do men and women risk their lives, according to the passage?
 
c) What does courage mean to Mandela?
 
d) Trace a word in the passage that means ‘ ability to deal with any kind of hardship’ is
 
3. No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. Even in the grimmest times in prison, when my comrades and I were pushed to our limits, I would see a glimmer of humanity in one of the guards, but it was enough to reassure me and keep me going
