Q. I. Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

I stopped to let the car cool off and to study the map. I had expected to be near my objective by now, but everything still seemed alien to me. I was only five when my father had taken abroad, and that was eighteen years ago. When my mother died after a tragic accident, he did not quickly recover from the shock and loneliness.

Everything around him was full of her presence continually reopening the wound. So he decided to emigrate. In the new country, he became absorbed in making a new life for the two of us so he gradually ceased to grieve. 

He did not marry again and I was brought up without a woman’s care, but I lacked for nothing for he was both father and mother to me. He always meant to go back one day, but not to stay. 

He wanted to see the old folk again and to visit my mother’s grave. He became mortally ill a few months before we had planned to go and when he knew that he was dying, he made me promise to go on my own.

I hired a car the day after landing and bought a comprehensive book of maps, which I found most helpful on the cross-country journey, but which I did not think I should need on the last stage. It was not that I remembered anything at all. 

But my father had described over and over again what we should see at every milestone, after leaving the nearest town, so I was positive I should recognize it as familiar territory. Well, I had been wrong, for I was now lost.

I looked at the map and then at the speedometer. I had come ten miles since leaving the town, and at this point, according to my father, I should be looking at farms and cottages in a valley, with the spire of the church of our village showing in the far distance. 

I could see no valley, no farms, no cottage and no church only a lake. I decided that I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere. So, I drove back to the town and began to retrace the route, taking frequent glances at the map. I landed up at the same corner. 

The curious thing was that the lake was not marked on the map. I felt as if I had stumbled into a nightmare country, as you sometimes do in dreams. And as in a nightmare, there was nobody in sight to help me. 

Fortunately for me, as I was wondering what to do next, there appeared on the horizon a man on horseback, riding in my direction. I waited till he came near, then I asked him the way to our old village. He said that there was now no village. I thought he must have misunderstood me, so I repeated its name. 

This time he pointed to the lake. The village no longer existed because it had been submerged, and all the valley too.

The lake was not a natural one, but a man-made reservoir.

(b) Why did the author’s father feel lonely?

(e) How did the author’s mother die?

(g) Pick up the words from the above passage which mean the following:

(1) a being from another world 

(ii) to leave your own country to settle in another 

(iii) lake used as a source of water supply 

Ans. (a) The author was going to a new country. 

(b) The author’s father feels lonely because his wife died in an accident.

(e) The author’s mother died in the accident.

(d) The author was driven back to the town because he wanted to see old folk again and to visit his mother’s grave.

(e) The author could not locate his old village because his village has been changed in so many ways. According to the author’s father, his village has farms, cottages and a church in a valley. But there were no farms, cottages or churches. So, the author could not locate his old village,

(1) The author thinks that he would not need a map for the last part of his journey because he found a man who helped him. 

(e) (i) loneliness, (ii) abroad, (iii) reservoir

Q. 2. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

The present water demand in Delhi is about 750 million gallons per day whereas the supply from all the available sources is 600 mg (million gallons per day). The gap between demand and supply is widening with every passing day. The deficit is being partly met by the extraction of groundwater through wells, tube wells, hand- pumps, etc.

 Some of the areas in Delhi viz South and West Delhi are almost completely dependent on groundwater supply. No other city has grown so phenomenally as Delhi in the recent past. Its population has shot up to 135 lacks from pre-

independence figure of 17 lacks Relentless urbanization. industrialization and unprecedented growth have caused tremendous pressure on civic amenities including the availability of potable water.

Due to rapid urbanization infiltration of rainwater into the ground has decreased drastically and the recharging of groundwater has diminished. Over-exploitation of groundwater resources has resulted in a decline in water levels by 4 to 10 metres. 

Deterioration in the quality of groundwater with increases in salinity has made it unfit for human consumption, vegetation is also affected adversely. Wells and borewells are drying up. And we may be inching towards Rajasthan and Gujarat-like severe drought conditions.

(i) The rainwater that falls on the rooftop is guided to bore- wells/pits/new, old or abandoned wells through small diameter pipes to charge the underground storage which can be used later at the time needed.

(ii) If the entire rooftop area (approximately 140 sq. km) in Delhi gets utilized for rainwater harvesting, the expected rise in groundwater level due to additional recharge of groundwater would be 0-5 metres.

(iii) One cari captures and recharges about 65,000 litres of rainwater domestic water requirements of a family of four for 160 days.

The district administration in Dewas (MP) has made rainwater harvesting mandatory for all houses having tube wells. This has improved the soil moisture, and the groundwater level has risen. Chennai Metro Water Board also made rooftop rainwater harvesting mandatory under the city’s building regulations. There are several successful examples in Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat and Rajasthan. Rooftop rainwater harvesting in IIT, Delhi

The campus has led to a rise of 0-51 metres in water levels.

(a) Vegetation is also affected adversely. (b) Wells and borewells are drying up.

(c) Our land is going to severe drought conditions like Rajasthan and Gujarat. 

5. How we can store rainwater for future water demand? We can store rainwater by roof in filling our tanks.

harvesting mandatory for all houses having wells. Chennai Metro Water Board also made roof-top rain-water harvesting mandatory under the city’s building regulations, Rooftop rainwater harvesting in IIT, Delhi Campus has led to a rise of 0.51 metres in water-leach

(b) Summary: In Delhi present water demand is about 750 million per day. But supply from all the available sources is 640 million per day. The gap between demand and supply is widening with every passing day. Delhi is the most rapid state in population. Its population has shot up to 135 lakh from a pre-independence figure of 17 lakh, Relentless urbanization, industrialization and unprecedented growth have caused tremendous pressure on civic amenities including the availability of portable water.

Or, Write a letter to the Police Commissioner. (Traffic) about the inadequate parking facilities in the street area of Ranchi, which is causing a lot of inconvenience to the people.

Ans

Ratu Road Ranchi

May 10, 2008

To, The Police Commissioner (Traffic)

Ranchi

Subject: Inadequate Parking Facilities Sir,

The growing number of vehicles and the lack of parking facilities for them has become a great headache for the residents of the Commercial Street area in Ranchi. Commercial Street area is one of the biggest and the most glamorous business centres of Bangalore.

 The number of vehicles swells to an unmanageable limit during the peak hours. Inadequate parking facilities have made the place cramped and jampacked. The law of the jungle operates here. This confusion often leads to traffic jams. 

It also creates law and order problems. Pickpockets, anti-social elements and eve-teasers exploit such chaos on the roads.

The only solution to ease the situation lies in providing adequate parking facilities in the area. There should be a traffic control room to regulate the traffic. Heavy-duty vehicles must not be allowed during the peak hours.

I hope all these suggestions will be given due consideration and immediate steps will be taken at the earliest to ease the situation.

Yours faithfully

Rakesh

the country and gave the famous slogan ‘do or die’ to his countrymen. 

Though the movement didn’t prove to be an immediate success, the British did not grant independence to our country in 1947. This great son of India was shot dead on January 30, 1948. But he will live forever in our hearts for what he has done for India.
