Value –based questions

Q1. Exploitation is a universal phenomenon. The poor indigo farmers were exploited by the British landlords to which Gandhiji objected. Even after our independence we find exploitation of unorganized labour. What values do we learn from Gandhiji’s campaign to counter the present days problem of exploitation?

Ans :Indian peasants- victims of exploitation (by landlords or British)- present day – politicians exploit- Gandhiji wanted to liberate the oppressed farmers- urged leaders to visit villages to help poor if they really wanted to liberate the countrymuch to learn from Gandhiji’s campaign – selfless and devoted to the cause of the poor- compassion for poor and their suffering – today too we should inculcate compassion for downtrodden – if we want to give power to the powerless – voice to the voiceless – compassion and empathy lacking in present day politicians – sincerity lacking – Gandhiji’s campaign can be effective if we fight hunger and deprivation – such charismatic leaders can alleviate the sufferings of millions.

Q2. “None of them know that it is illegal for children like him to work in the glass furnaces with high temperatures in dingy cells without air and light”

Ans : These words from’Last Spring’ throw light on grinding poverty that forces many children in India to lead a life of exploitation. Driven by a concern for such children who lose their childhood and who go through an unjust treatment, write an article in about 100 words on ‘Child labour in India’

Child Labour- legal and social offence, banned under law. More than 10 million children employed in hazardous and dangerous trades and industries – tender age – work for 10-15 hours – sub-human working condition – exploited – underpaid, illfed, physical torture – grim and famished faces, eg. Mirzapur Carpet industry, thousands of children in weaving – eyes more adjusted to dark – risk of losing eyesight, strict measures to be adopted to execute ban on child labour – future will be doomed otherwise – birthright of every child to live his / her children

Q3. In the story “The Rat Trap’ the peddler undergoes a change of heart when he received compassion and understanding. The story gives us the message that no one os born criminal. Circumstances make them criminals. Based on the story of the Rat Trap Peddler write a paragraph on the topic ‘Fellow Feeling’ is the corner stone of humanity’

 Ans :‘Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see’ – Mark Twain’ Kindness – universal language – comprehended beyond humanities – showing kindness to others gives a feeling of joy to the recipient – doer blessed by a feeling of warmth – religions preach – mute animals wave their tails as a return gesture to kindness shown to them – plants grow, bear fruit – response to the kind behavior of the caretaker. Showing kindness to neighbours and collegues help in developing a positive social environment – kindness can reform one – who has gone astray – kindness will be always returned – hence be kind to yourself give space to trivial mistakes.
