I. Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow: (12 marks)
1. For Swaminathan, events took an unexpected turn. Father looked over the newspaper he was reading under the hall lamp and said, “Swami, listen to this: ‘News today is one of the bravery of a village lad who, while returning home by the jungle path, came face to face with a tiger…’” The paragraph described the fight the boy had with the tiger and his flight up a tree, where he stayed for half a day till some people came that way and killed the tiger. Swaminathan said, “I think he must have been a very strong and grown-up person, not at all a boy. How could a boy fight a tiger?” 2. “You think you are wiser than the newspaper?” Father sneered. “A man may have the strength of an elephant and yet be a coward: whereas another may have the strength of a straw, but if he has courage he can do anything. Courage is everything, strength and ages are not important.” Swami disputed the theory. “How can it be, Father? Suppose I have all the courage, what can I do if a tiger should attack me?” 3. “Leave alone strength, can you prove you have courage? Let me see if you can sleep alone tonight in my office room.” A frightful offer, Swaminathan thought. He had always slept beside his Granny, and any change in this arrangement kept him trembling and awake all night. He hoped at first that his father was only joking. He mumbled weakly, “From the first of next month I’ll sleep alone, Father.” 4. “No, you must do it now. It is disgraceful sleeping beside Granny or Mother like a baby. You are in class seven and I don’t at all like the way you are being brought up,” he said, and looked at his wife, who was rocking the cradle. “Why do you look at me while you say it?” she asked. “I hardly know anything about the boy.” “No, no, I don’t mean you,” Father said. “If you mean that your mother is spoiling him, tell her so; and don’t look at me,” she said, and turned away. Swaminathan’s father sat gloomily gazing at the newspaper on his lap. Swaminathan rose silently and tiptoed away to his bed in the passage.
5. Presently, Father came and stood over him. “Swami, get up,” he said. Swaminathan stirred and groaned as if in sleep. Father said, “Get up, swami.” Granny pleaded, “Why do you disturb him?” “Get up, Swami,” he said for the third time, and Swaminathan got up. Swaminathan looked at his Granny, hesitated for a moment, and followed his father into the office room. On the way he threw a look of appeal at his mother and she said, “Why do you take him to the office room? He can sleep in the hall, I think.” “I don’t think so,” Father said, and Swaminathan slunk behind him with bowed head. “Let me sleep in the hall, Father,” he pleaded. “Your office room is very dusty and there may be scorpions behind your law books.”
