Answer 1:   (ISC English Language 2010 Class-12)

(a) ‘Incredible India’
The Image of India in Western countries is quite dull and negative. India has all along been dubbed as a dark, mysterious, backward country-a land of magicians, snake-charmers, flies and beggars. Only a few foreigners are aware of India which is really incredible – a country with amazing beautiful natural sights, rich flora and fauna and a large cultural diversity. E.Max Mueller, a great German scholar, proclaimed in one of his essays : “If I were to look over the whole world to find out the country most richly endowed with all the wealth, power and beauty that nature can bestow – in some parts a paradise on earth – I should point to India”.


It is this wonderful India that I plan to show to my friend John who is coming to India for a fortnight. First, I would like him to see the progress modem India has made in science and technology by taking him around Indian Institute of Medical Sciences (UMS), Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Delhi. I also wish to show him some centres of industry in and around Delhi – in Noida, Gurgaon and Faridabad, which may include Maruti Udyog, some units of computer software companies – a joy ride in the Metro, etc. If possible, I may take him to show some industrial units of Reliance, Tata, ONGC, etc.

Then I would definitely take my friend to show the Taj Mahal, the Sun Temple at Konarak, and one or two other famous places. A visit to Ajanta and Ellora caves is also on my mind. All these places reveal the wealth of art and culture India possesses. I have in mind a visit to the National Museum in New Delhi which provides a glimpse of India’s glorious past and present in diverse fields.

As a fortnight is not sufficient to show even the most important aspects of India, I would not think of a journey across the Southern states. However, I think a visit to beautiful beaches of Goa even for a day is a must. Goa gives an idea of the beauty nature has endowed our country with.

This is what I have in mind. I hope my friend would get a fair idea of the greatness of our country. When he would go back to Canada he would not regret having visited a ‘backward’ country. He would proudly tell his friend what India really is.

(b) ‘Relatives are a tedious and curious pack of people’.
It is true that we can choose our friends but not our relatives. We have to put up with all our relatives, good or bad, we cannot disown them as we cannot disown our parentage.

In the past relatives were always welcome. People were quite sociable and had plenty of time to spare. A visit even of a distant relative was an exciting event, and would make everybody happy. It was so because people were then less demanding. Relatives did not ask for special treatment, separate rooms to sleep, special dishes to eat, or parties in hotels and visits to tourist places. They used to be contented with whatever they got.

However, in present times relatives are no more welcome. With the decline in joint family culture, we have less time at our disposal to welcome our relatives and look after them properly. The pressure of workplace has deprived us of all pleasures of leisure. We remain busy to meet deadlines all the times, whether we are in office or at home. We have no time even to eat and dress properly. We often fail to find time to look after even the basic needs of our family. When a relative turns up in such circumstances, we only curse him and ourselves, though we pretend to be happy at his arrival.

Most of the relatives are insensitive people. They are tedious to deal with. Very often they expect us to take them round the city or take them to a place where they have some job to do or meet someone. They do not bother as to how much inconvenience they cause to their host by making such demands. They simply want all attention and expect to be treated like VIPs. They disturb the peace of the household and disrupt its routine badly.
