2022 Activity Task (January)



Full Marks: 20

Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow :

I remember another funny incident about Bhola Grandpa related by my father. It had been a rainy afternoon. Bhola Grandpa, wild with excitement, told my father and his friends that he had seen a gang of pirates. They were buying a large box under one of the sand dunes on the seashore by our village. At once father and his friends started looking for the hidden treasure. Evening passed on to night. Moonlight came in through the clouds. A pack of jackals were howling. It was past midnight. At this point of time, Bhola Grandpa confessed that there was no real treasure. It was all a dream which he had during his midday nap.

Once Bhola Grandpa had a great adventure in the Sunderbans. In those days Royal Bengal tigers freely roamed the dense jungles of the Sunderbans. People took care to move about only in groups, particularly after sundown.

One evening, Bhola Grandpa Grandpa was returning from the weekly market. Suddenly at a distance of about five yards behind him, he heard the growl of a Royal Bengal tiger. Bhola Grandpa turned and found the bright gaze of the tiger on his face.

Bhola Grandpa instantly climbed up a nearby banyan tree. The tiger roared and circled the tree about a hundred times. Then it settled down under a bush without taking its eyes off him. With nightfall, the forest grew dark and silent. Bhola Grandpa could hear the tiger beating its tail on the dry leaves. Hours passed.

 A competition among Three artists

Once three artists lived in a city. They were all skilled artists. They held a competition to decide who was the best artist among them. There was a prize declared for the winner. The judge was also appointed for this purpose.

One of the artist painted flowers. The second of them painted a fruit. Last of them painted a picture of curtain. During the observation, they found the flowers so natural that a bee sat on for honey. The fruit was also so natural that an ox tried to eat it. The judge praised all these things. Then he went and saw the curtain. It was so real that he tried to move it to enter the room. Flowers deceived the insect. Fruit deceived the beast but the curtain deceived an intellectual man like him. Thus the third artist won the prize.

Moral: A fair Justice is natural and intellectual.
