Q.1 Read the following passage carefully and answer the question given below :(15)

Ecology teaches us the  interdependence of all  life  forms. Yoga goes a step further and  teaches us the  unity of all forms.

With the  wider and  deeper understanding of Ecology man  has  come to  understand his link with nature better . he has shed  hisanthropocentric arrogance . it  is hoped that he will take a step further and  come to  Amrit of yoga as many ecologists have  already done.

Sir  Jagdish Chandra Bose noted the  ability of plants to react to its environs. That was  in the  1920. After  his  demise  the  research was  given up . it was  left to the  modern day scientist to produce irrefutable proof that  plants cannot only establish yoga with living things around them , including man , but also can  read our minds and  intentions. Clever Backster says, “ There is no  doubt in my mind that  we are  all one.”Most of the  top  scientists of the  world echo  these scientists , or  rather  this  conviction. All say, “ we  are unity”. And in the  spectrum of we every living thing on this earth  is included. The language of the  hoary yogis may be  unintelligible, the  ground they trod may be  terra incognita to us . Now , however, scientist are speaking in a  scientific parlance, which we  can comprehend. But shall we  even  heed them ? we have  the  various traditional paths to yoga,karma yoga, Tantra yoga and  other s . for  the scientifically inclined modern man  , a new  path has been discovered. Let us name it Ecology Yoga.

Q.2    Read the passage carefully and answer the question give below it :(10)

`       Books are by far the most lasting products of human  effort.  Temples fall into ruin, pictures and  statues decay, but books survive, time does not destroy the  great thoughts which  are as  fresh today as  when  they first passed through their author’s  minds ages ago . what  was  then  thought and said  still speaks to us  as  vividly as  ever from the  printed pages. The  only effect of  time has  been to throw out of  currency the bad  products, for nothing in  literature can  long survive but  what is  really good. Books introduce us into the best society, they  bring  us into the  presence of the  greatest minds that have  ever lived. We hear what they said and did , we  see them as if  they were really alive, we  sympathise with them  enjoy with them  and grieve  with them . in a  way we  move in their company and  their  Experiences becomes ours, without books no  fresh ideas are  possible  and  with out fresh  ideas  no  cultured society is  possible. No  wonder that world keeps its  books with great care.
