Directions  – Read the following passage carefully and answer questions 12 to 16.

   At the dawn of history India started on her unending quest and trackless centuries are filled with her striving and the grandeur of her successes and her failures. Through good and ill fortune alike she has never lost sight of that quest or forgotten the ideals which gave her strength. We end today a period of ill fortune and India discovers herself again.

    The achievement we celebrate today is but a step, an opening of opportunity, to the greater triumphs and achievements that await us. Are we brave enough and wise enough to grasp this opportunity and accept the challenge of the future?

   That future is not one of ease or resting but of incessant striving so that we might fulfil the pledges we have so often taken and the one we shall take today. The service of India means the service of the millions who suffer. It means the ending of poverty and ignorance and disease and inequality of opportunity. The ambition of the greatest man of our generation has been to wipe every tear from every eye. That may be beyond us but so long as there are tears and suffering, so long our work will not be over.

   And so we have to labour and work hard, to give reality to our dreams. Those dreams are for India, but they are also for the world, for all the nations and peoples who are too closely knit together today for any one of them to imagine that it can live apart. Peace has been said to be indivisible, so is freedom, so is prosperity now, and so also is disaster in this one world that can no longer be split into isolated fragments.

   To the people of India whose representatives we are, we make appeal to join us with faith and confidence in this adventure. This is not time for petty and destructive criticism, no time for ill-will or blaming others. We have to build the noble mansion of free India where all her children may dwell.

  The appointed day has come- the day appointed by destiny-and India stands forth again, after long slumber and struggle, awake, vital, free and independent. The past cling on to us still in some measure and we have to do much before we redeem to pledges we have taken so often. Yet the turning point is past, and history begins a new for us, the history which we shall live and act and others will write about.

   It is a fateful moment for us in India, for all Asia and for the world. A new star rises, the star of freedom in the east, a new hope comes into being, a vision long cherished materializes. May the star never set and that hope never be betrayed!
