Another man asked permission to put his boat (which was very old and unsafe, and which the harbor master had condemned) out to sea . The king granted all these requests.

He found he had to behave so carefully and keep such state in it that he longed to go back to his comfortable little hut where he was happier. The old woman came complaining also that she found she had lost all her customers, for they came first of all to buy clothing from the neighboring stall, and then stoopped to buy fruit before they went home again.

Directions-Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it-
Several arguments have been advanced by supporters of the proportions that higher education in India should not be open to all. In the first place, they maintain, making higher education open to all leads to the deterioration of standards of education. There is a steady decline in the educational standards in India . A graduate of the times when higher educational facilities were available to a selected few , had much higher standard than the graduate of today. The reason is that every Tom, Dick and Harry has not the capacity and the ability of comprehencing higher truths of life which higher education seeks to discover, Even in ancient India . Taxila and Nalanda University had very rigid and stringent rules regarding admission of students. Student seeking admission in this university had to pass several tough tests before he could be allowed admission in them. By these rigid rules and regulations these universities maintained one of the highest standards of teaching and learning in the world . The graduates of these universities were the very glass and essence of humanity , whose scholarship evoked admiration of the mightiest and wisest of rulers of those times. Great sancity was therefore attached to these temples of higher learning . Higher education in India at present finds itself in a mess.There is nothing like standards . Things have come to such a pass that one who is adept in copying and cheating can easily pass higher examinations. Efforts have been made to prevent the students from indulging in unfair practices. But to no avail.

They had realized fully well that India’s sorrow had originated from disunity and the ugly spirit of mutual rivalries. They made Herculean efforts to weld this country again into strong bonds of unity. But their resourceless efforts were pitted against a power which on the strength of her abundant resources and her ugly policy of divide and rule had prevented the different communities of India from being united in close bonds of unity .

Directions-read the following passage carefully and answer the questions below it-
Citizens are made, not born. Though men may be social animals, they are very apt to regard society as made for them, and as far as possible to use it for their own ends. It is an individual, not a member of a community , that issues from the womb, though these individuals have to live in the state and must learn how to do it . All human beings have the capacity to be citizens, but mere capacity is not enough. It needs developing and training. The vocational and personal sides of education will help little here. Men must learn how to earn their living; they must have the chance of developing body , mind and character to their full capacity. But earning a living and developing a personality are private matters, a concern of the individual, they will make a man more useful member of the state but not necessarily a better citizen; they are no guarantee that he will serve it, study its interests, carry out his duties. Indeed of overemphasized , they may, and obviously often common good , vocational and personal training are dangerously incomplete without the discipline which teaches men how to play their part in the state and make them wish to do it. Education is a trinity, and one of its members is training in citizenship.
