Reading (20)

  1. (A)Read the passage and answer the questions that follow.

When a brave mountaineer is assailing the Everest he is as great a hero as a

cosmonaut rocketing towards Mars in his space capsule, and thousands of men and

women in different countries back his progress with their good wishes and share

the thrills and anxieties of his hazardous journey to the roof of the world, while

scores of anxious scientists wish him success in the hope of obtaining valuable

information on atmospheric conditions in the upper regions of the earth.

Mountaineering is indeed a source of pleasure and a mine of useful knowledge

which is constantly enriching the scientific vocabulary of geologists, mineralogists

and glaciologists of the world.

Mountaineering is a perennial source of joy to those who have eyes that

can appreciate beauties of nature. Nowhere does nature reveal her charm in greater

abundance than as green and flowering mountain tops with transparent streams of

water flowing down their slopes or on snow-clad hills where sunlight weaves its

magic colours into their virginal whiteness. To lovers of mountains, the sound of

waterfalls is like the joyful clapping of merry, primitive dancers, and the howling

of night winds contains a musical pleasantness which surpasses the highly

sustained rhapsodies of man-made organs. Lakes in high altitudes, holding within

their cup-like mountainous enclosures the watery wealth of surrounding glaciers,

treeless plateaus covered with rare varieties of grass, plants and flowers and

yawning chasms into whose dark, unfathomable interior, nature’s countless species

of animals and plants carry on their fight for existence, are attractions so powerful

and irresistible that no man or woman who is a member of a mountaineering party

or club can turn a deaf ear to their call. These widely scattered, ever-alluring

treasures of nature are the climber’s greatest inducement to wander with a hungry

heart in search of beauty, adventure and fame along the dangerous slopes of sky-

embracing heights.

Mountaineering is an awfully risky venture in the case of those

ambitious souls who are dreaming of conquering such majestic peaks as

Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Everest, and who wish to be ranked among the world’s

greatest climbers, Sir Edmund P.Hillary and Tenzing Norgay. Dozens of

adventurers belonging to different nations with their hearts burning with a passion

to conquer the highest peak in the world perished in the immortal snows of the

Himalayas, after painfully inching their way to heights which were in close

proximity to the summit. Expedition after expedition turned back exhausted,

frostbitten , and utterly disappointed when the mighty Himalayas hurled icy winds,

snow storms and blizzards at those who try to conquer Everest, thus barring their

way to this pinnacle of glory. The bones of many men of unrealised ambition lie

buried in the glacial wilderness which is the home of the highest peak in the world.

Such awful setbacks, however, did not dampen the enthusiasm of succeeding

generations of mountaineers; the failure of early expeditions did not deter Colonel

Hunt and his brave companions from trying to plant on the summit the flag of the victory of human defiance of nature’s death dealing agents in high altitudes.

(a) Mountaineers are considered as heroes . Why? 1

of the earth’s crust.

(b) Lasting through the year.

(B). Read the poem given below and answer the questions:

A London Thoroughfare 2 A.M.

They have watered the street,

It shines in the glare of lamps,

Cold, white lamps,

And lies

Like a slow-moving river,

Barred with silver and black.

Cabs go down it,


And then another,

Between them I hear the shuffling of feet.

Tramps doze on the window-ledges,

Night-walkers pass along the sidewalks.

The city is squalid and sinister,

With the silver-barred street in the midst,

Slow moving,

A river leading nowhere.

Opposite my window,

The moon cuts,

Clear and round,

Through the plum-coloured night.

She cannot light the city.

It is too bright.

It has white lamps,

And glitters coldly.

I stand in the window and watch the moon.

She is thin and lusterless,

But I love her.

I know the moon,

And this is an alien city.

Amy Lowell

Wandering Singers

Where the voice of the wind calls our wandering feet,

Through echoing forest and echoing street,

With lutes in our hands ever-singing we roam,

All men are our kindred, the world is our home.

Our lays are of cities whose lustre is shed,

The laughter and beauty of women long dead;

The sword of old battles, the crown of old kings,

And happy and simple and sorrowful things.

What hope shall we gather, what dreams shall we sow?

Where the wind calls our wandering footsteps we go.

No love bids us tarry, no joy bids us wait:

The voice of the wind is the voice of our fate.


(Sarojini Naidu)
