1. Read carefully the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:-

For the purpose of educating them; our purpose is to make them fit for life. As soon as we

realise this fact, we will understand that it is very important to choose the system of

education which will really prepare children for life. It is not enough first to choose the

system of education one finds or to continue with one’s system of education; without

examining it to see whether it, in fact, is suitable or not. In many modern countries, it has

for sometime been fashionable to think that, by making education free for all, whether rich

or poor, clever or stupid - one can solve all the problems of society and build a perfect

nation. But we can already see that free education; for all is not enough. We find in such

countries a far larger number of people, with university degrees than there are jobs for them

to fill. Because of their degrees, they refuse to do what they think low work, and infact work

with the hands which is thought to be dirty - and shameful in such countries. But we have

only to think a moment to understand that the work of a completely uneducated farmer is far

more important that of a professor; we can live without education but we die if we have no

food. In countries where there are no servants because everyone is ashamed of doing such

work, the professors have to waste much of their time doing manual housework. Infact when

we say that all for us must be educated to fit us for life, it means that we must be educated

in such a way that, firstly each of us can do whatever job is suited to his brain, aptitude and

ability. Secondly, that we can realise that all jobs are necessary to society, and that it is very

bad to be ashamed of one’s works, or to scorn someone else. Only such a type of education

can be called valuable to society.

Questions:

i) What should we keep in mind when we choose a system of education? 1

ii) Why do people refuse to do what they think low work? 2

iii) What is the definition of free education for modern countries?

iv) ‘An uneducated farmer’s work is more important than a professor’s work’. Do you

agree?

v) ‘Education is valuable to society’. Frame a question on this statement.

vi) Choose a word from the passage which is a synonym to ‘Contempt’. Education is not

an end, but a means to an end. In other words, we do not educate children only Why/

why not? 2

2. Write a postcard to your friend about the merriment you had in the play section of the mall

you visited in about 45 – 50 words.

3. You are Samar /Smarika. Write a letter to the editor of a national daily - The Hindustan

Times, Delhi, highlighting the problems of daily commuters during peak hours. Suggest some

solutions to overcome the problems.
