SANTINIKETAN, Aug. 17, 1998 : The rainy season has returned, and the man is back at his work, He is Pannalal Patel, the man who has completed 96 years, and is still going strong.
Pannalal was once a ‘terrorist’. Then he turned into a Gandhian. At present his mission is ‘Meen Mangal’ or ‘the well-being of fish’, as he calls it.
Come the rains, and Pannalal would release millions of young salmons into rivers following through the neighbourhood. He says that water without fish is just as absurd as fish without water.
On Independence Day Eve he had, as if, an appointment with the Ajoy, the river he loves and adores.
Choked up with silt and sand from bank to bank, the river remains almost dry throughout the year except in the rainy season. Once called ‘the crazy river’ for often changing its course. Ajoy is now better known for the great destruction it causes, at intervals of some years, by flooding the villages on its banks. It then washes away people and cattle and houses, and brings great misery.
The appointed day arrived. It was a cloudy afternoon at Palitpur, the venue of the programme where a new bridge has been built across the river.
Short speeches were made. Songs were sung. Mr. Patel took a handful of the young salmon and threw them into the water–once, twice, thrice. Others followed him. The hero of the day looked happy, and a smile lit up his wrinkled face.
But some fisherman in the crowd were rather sceptical about the usefulness of the programme. Will the fish, when grown up, return to the same waters and be caught in their nets ? perhaps not. They talked among themselves.
Mr. Patel, However, does not bother himself about who catches how much fish in which waters. He himself is a complete vegetarian. His only concern is the well-being of fish.
63. Pannalal Patel, who is very old, is still—
(A) strong
(B) fond of fishing
(C) very alert
(D) can walk fast

(D) quite often
Ans : (C)
66. According to Pannalal, water without fish is—

(A) the fishermen

(C) society

(D) None of the above

Directions—(Q. 88 to 97) In question you have a brief passage with 10 questions. Read the passage carefully and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives.
We were in class when the headmaster came in, followed by a ‘new fellow’, not wearing the school uniform and a school servant carrying a large desk. Those who had been asleep woke up, and everyone rose as if surprised at his work. The headmaster made a sign to us to sit down. Then turning to the class master, he said to him in a low voice : “Mr. Roger, here is a pupil whom I recommend to your care.” The new boy was wearing a tight green jacket, yellow trousers and a strange cap which soon attracted the attention of the hole class.
The new boy was still holding his strange cap on his knees even after the prayers were over. ‘Rise,’ said the master. The boy stood up. His cap fell. The whole class began to laugh. He stood to pick it up. A neighbour knocked it down again with his elbow. He picked it up once more, ‘Get rid of your helmet,’ said the master, who was a bit of a joker. There was a burst of laughter from the boys, which so throughly shamed the boy that he didn’t know whether to keep his cap in his hand, leave it on the ground, or put it on his head. He sat down again and placed it on his knee.
‘Rise,’ repeated the master, ‘and tell me your name.’ The new boy articulated in a stammering voice an unintelligible name, ‘Again !’ said the master. The same sputtering of syllables was heard, drowned by the tittering of the class ‘Louder !’ cried the master; ‘louder !’ The new fellow opened a large mouth and shouted at the top of his voice as if calling someone the word ‘Charbovari’. A hubbub broke out; they shouted, barked,
stamped and repeated ‘Charbovari ! Charbovari !’

English Solved Paper
Directions—(Q. 1–10) In questions 1 to 10 you have a brief passage with 10 questions. Read the passage carefully, and choose the best answer to each question out of the four alternatives. You may think the sign of a good manager is to have a department where everybody is busy at work on their assigned tasks. But if your people are merely doing their jobs, they’re only working at about half their potential. A truly productive department is one in which every employee is actively thinking of better, more efficient methods of working ways in which to produce a higher quality product, in less time, at lower cost.
To get this kind of innovation from your people, you have to be receptive to new ideas; what’s more, you have to encourage your people to produce new ideas. Incentives are one way to motivate employees to be more productive. You can offer a cash bonus, time off, or a gift. But a more potent form of motivation is simply the employee’s knowledge that management does listen to him or her, and does put employee suggestions and ideas to work. When you listen to new ideas, be open-minded. Don’t shoot down a suggestion before you’ve heard it in full. Many of us are too quick, too eager, to show off our own experience and knowledge and say that something won’t work because ‘we’ve tried it before’ or ‘we don’t do it that way’. Well, may be you did try it before but that doesn’t mean it won’t work now. And having done things a certain way in the past doesn’t mean you’ve been doing them the best way. A good manager is open-minded and receptive to new ideas.
