Section – A (Reading)
1. Read the following passage carefully:
A bookshop is not something you find everywhere these days. Books, which werem once a staple diet for youngsters in their formative years, are fading out of their list of managements. Ask any youngster which is the latest book he has read and he will be baffled. Apart from a few consistent readers, others just befool themselves with a best-seller‟s name or lament the curriculum load for justifying themselves, like this seventeen year old school goer who says, “I just read my physics book.” Television has been blamed much for this calamitous situation, which is producing square-faced people and a bookless society. Furthermore, today‟s children are under pressure to be smart and popular, to succeed on a social level. Moreover, the computers, video games, internet, swimming lessons, cricketing and every youngster‟s passion for hour long tete-a-tetes on telephone with friends eat up all their leisure time. A child who is constantly under pressure to live up to his parents‟ expectations, at times unreasonable, does not like to throw himself into another set of books after the laborious school work unless the child comes from a family of readers where intoxicating works of Shakespeare and Dickens are just a matter of pulling them out from the shelves. Many parents also believe that today‟s children have become aware and demand logical reasoning for everything. They can no longer be fooled by fairy tales or animal stories, as they have seen no fairies or animals except for those old tired ones in the city zoo.
