Passage-5

Directions (1-10) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate  them while answering some of the questions-

Peacemaking may well have been the intent behind Samajwadi Party patriarch Mulayam Singh Yadav’s summons to his warring son and brother at a party meet in Lucknow on Monday. But the gathering soon lapsed into a tawdry spectacle of blame-calling and weepy confessional, with all three airing their grievances petulantly in full view of the assembled party faithful. Since September 13, when Mr. Yadav replaced son Akhilesh Yadav, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, with his brother Shivpal Yadav as the SP’s State unit chief, the party has been hurtling inexorably towards a split, in a blaze of sackings and accusations.

The occasional restoration of one or the other of the dramatis personae to a lost post has failed to check the feud. Monday’s developments have all but foreclosed the possibility of any resolution that could put the SP back together again in time for the Assembly elections in a dangerously polarised landscape. Ever since he became Chief Minister in 2012, Akhilesh Yadav has functioned in the shadow of his father and “uncles” — relatives and party stalwarts.

This has cut both ways for the young Chief Minister. He has had to field questions about his authority with charges that U.P. in effect had “four and a half CMs” — but it also allowed him to separate himself from the SP’s worst instincts. Their overbearing presence allowed his government an alibi for failing to maintain law and order. Their continuance served as a reminder of the generational shift he effected, from their traditional resistance to English education and computers, and their “boys will be boys” excuse-making for the politics of patronage and rent-seeking.Till the meltdown over the last couple of months, it seemed that all that the SP was headed towards was a final transition from the old guard towards a more aspirational politics.

A convincing transition is now all but impossible, and the timing of Akhilesh Yadav’s next steps could determine his future in public life. It is ironic that Mulayam Singh Yadav, a most pragmatic politician who left no bridge unbuilt across the ideological spectrum, is presiding over nothing more than a power grab among his family and friends. Mr. Yadav’s legacy includes the deepening of the Mandal politics of social justice, being a guarantor of the safety of minorities and getting a grip on the agrarian economy in the State.

It is unfortunate to see him publicly value a fellow-traveler primarily for keeping him out of prison, and not make any effort to transform a feud into a constructive contest of ideas. At a time when he has decided to openly take stock of his inner circle’s loyalty, he has let himself down the most.

Passage-4

Directions (1-10) :  Answer the questions given below very carefully after reading the passage . Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate  them while answering some of the questions-

To understand regionalism, we need to know various dimensions of the region. Region as a geographical unit, is delimited from each other. Region as a social system, reflects the relation between different human beings and groups. Regions are an organised cooperation in cultural, economic, political or military fields. Region acts as a subject with distinct identity, language, culture and tradition.

Regionalism is an ideology and political movement that seeks to advance the causes of regions. As a process it plays role within the nation as well as outside the nation i.e. at international level. Both types of regionalism have different meaning and have positive as well as negative impact on society, polity, diplomacy, economy, security, culture, development, negotiations, etc. At the international level, regionalism refers to transnational cooperation to meet a common goal or to resolve a shared problem or it refers to a group of countries such as-Western Europe, or Southeast Asia, linked by geography, history or economic features.

Top IBPS coaching Center in New Delhi

Used in this sense, regionalism refers to attempts to reinforce the links between these countries economic features.The second meaning of the term is regionalism at national level refers to a process in which sub-state actors become increasingly powerful, power devolves from central level to regional governments. These are the regions within country, distinguished in culture, language and other socio-cultural factors.

If someone is aspiring to or make special efforts to develop one’s state or region or to remove poverty & make social justice there, then that cannot be called as regionalism. Regionalism doesn’t means defending the federal features of the constitution. Any demand for separate state, autonomous region or for devolution of power below the state level is also, sometimes confused as regionalism.Roots of regionalism is in India’s manifold diversity of languages, cultures, ethnic groups, communities, religions and so on, and encouraged by the regional concentration of those identity markers, and fueled by a sense of regional deprivation.

For many centuries, India remained the land of many lands, regions, cultures and traditions.For instance, southern India (the home of Dravidian cultures), which is itself a region of many regions, is evidently different from the north, the west, the central and the north-east. Even the east of India is different from the North-East of India comprising today seven constituent units of Indian federation with the largest concentration of tribal people.

Q-1 According to passage  the Second meaning of term regionalism at national level refers to-

  1. a process in which sub-state actors become increasingly powerful
  2. a social system, reflects the relation between different human beings and groups
  3. an ideology and political movement that seeks to advance the causes of regions

Here are some important questions from Reading comprehension 2 Targeting Government Exams

 

 

Passage -2

In territorial animals it may be said that aggressions  that originally served the function of ensuring that the animal could compete with its neighbour in  the struggle for food has now come to serve the function of putting the distance between itself and its neighbor. There can be no doubt that man is also territorial anima. Even in circumstances so far removed from the primitive as contemporary Western Civilization, the countryside is demarcated by the fences and Hedges many of which carry notices stating that ‘trespassing will be prosecuted’ and the entry of our houses by unauthorised persons is resented as much as the loss of any property with which they may abscond.

On a national scale, the invasion of the Homeland by an enemy Evokes a more passionately aggressive response than does a battle with the same of on territory which belongs to neither.

 

Like other animals man also reacts badly to overcrowding. Those of us who live in towns have learnt to accommodate ourselves to some degree to the kind of congestion which seems to be an inevitable sequel of urbanization:But the closer we are packed the more easily resentful Of each other do we tend to become.It is probably on this account that many people find life in cities irritating and exhausting since they are compelled to control aggressive impulses which arise solely as a result of overcrowding.It is also probable that it is because of wider spacing between individuals Which is usual in the countryside that   rural folks are less tense, more neighborly and often better mannered then their urban  counterparts.

 

Directions (1-5) : Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it. Certain words have been printed in bold to help you locate  them while answering some of the questions-

Q-2  ‘An inevitable sequel to urbanisation’ here means

  1. A Final development of the overcrowding in cities
  2. An unavoidable result of the development of the cities
  3. A necessary conclusion of the overcrowding in cities.
  4. A logical byproduct of town planning.

 

 Q-3 The writer suggests that  city life is exhausting because it frequently forces people to –

  1.  behave badly towards other people
  2.  ward off would be trespassers
  3. keep aggressive ages in check the
  4. compete more strongly for a living

  

 

Q-4 According to the passage in the chief reason for regarding a man as an animal is that he-

  1. cannot control his aggressive behaviour.
  2. behaves in a Savage fashion towards others.
  3. has failed to develop as a civilized being.     
  4.   share certain forms of animal behaviour.

 

Q-5  The main purpose of the passage is to

  1. Show modern man differs from the primitive man
  2. Explain some of the behavioral City dwellers
  3. show that town life is inferior to city life
  4. share certain forms of animal behaviour

Reading Comprehension Cracking Strategies for SSC Exams

What one wonder, is the lowest common denominator of Indian Culture today. The attractive Hema Malini, the song of Vividh Bharati or the mouth-watering Masala Dosa! Delectable as  these may be, each yields pride of place to that false symbol of a new era-the synthetic fibers.

In less than twenty years, the nylon sari and the terylene shirt have swept the countryside, penetrated to the farthest corners of the land and persuaded ever common man woman and child that the key to success in the present day world lies in artificial fibres: glass nylon crepe nylon, tery mixes,  polyester and what have you. More than the bicycles, the wristwatch or the transistor radio, synthetic clothes have come to represent the first step away from the village square. The village lass treasures the flashy nylon sari in her trousseau most dearly: the village youth gets a great kick out of his cheap terry cot shirt and trousers, the nearest he can approximate to the expensive synthetic sported by his wealthy city bread contemporaries.

And the Neo-rich craze for “phoren”is no-where more apparent than in the price that people will pay for smuggled, stolen, Alas, borrowed second hand or thrown away synthetic. Alas, even the unique richness of the traditional tribal costume is being fast eroded by the deadening uniformity of nylon.
