1.     Read the following passage carefully  :                                                      

 It is  well known now that addressing  the problem  of climate  change requires lifestyle changes. Some solutions might be difficult but others are not so. Consider handicrafts for example.  A range of jute products-hand  bags, files,  office bags, table  cloth  and decorative wall hangings-can replace many utility and decorative pieces produced in factories. Utility and decorative items made by skilled artisans using bamboo, different kinds of grass and leaves are equally graceful and artistic.

Most states in India have hundreds of such biodegradable handicraft items.  The classic Odissi paintings from Orissa, the delicate wood work of Bastar district of Chhattisgarh, the bamboo products from the northeast, the fine metal work  from Tamil Nadu and Karntaka, Aranmula  Kannaadi  art work  of Kerala,  terracotta and Kalighat  paintings from West Bengal, the chikankari    work  of Uttar Pradesh, the Madhubani  paintings from Bihar,  miniature paintings  from Bundi the Batua craft of Bhopal and the Kangra paintings from Himachal Pradesh are some examples of India's thriving craft traditions. Such a rich legacy, notwithstanding. India's share in global handicraft market is only 2 per cent.  The country's  Export Promotion  Council  is  alive  to such concerns. It has pegged the handicrafts  export target at Rs. 25,000 crore  per annum by 2010.On the face of it, the target does not seem unrealistic.  Eco-friendly products are regarded savvy in the West and the developed world.   This could work to the benefit of India's more than five million artisans  provided  we have the right  policy.  But nurturing age - old skill  amid commercialization  might not be easy. Selling  handicrafts  is  easy but preserving the age - old skill is difficult.  History is testimony to that fact the mass production is inimical to the  artisan's skill.

The market too demands diversity.  But in the mad rush to produce for the market, the artisan  does not get the time  and support for quality and innovation.  The design  of mass produced items has been watered down or averaged to a level where idiosyncrasy has almost disappeared,  and often is  not valued.  Artisanal  production is  contingent on moment - by - moment decisions,  on innovations.  Inmodern times this has given way to rules, standards and procedures.  So a number of artisans  have lost  the ability to create unique pieces in response to varying needs.The government must identify senior artisans and give them the wherewithal  and the time to bring innovation

(a)    Use of eco-friendly goods can bring about :

(i)      change in life - style of people.

(ii)    degradation  of climate.

(iii)   problems in one's life.

(iv)    comfort in one's life.

(b)    India's  Handicraft export target doesn't  seem unrealistic  because :

(i)      India has more than five million artisans.

(ii)    we have the right policies to nurture the age old skill.

(iii)   eco - friendly products are quite popular in the west and developed countries.

(iv)    India contributes 2 percent in global  handicraft.
