(A) (a) Robichon enthrals the audience at Appeville-Sous-Bois. He captivated the audience with his voice and presence. Men and women were half charmed and looked at him in awe-half horrified. The way he addressed the audience was quiet and humorous. He further narrated his imaginary experiences of his childhood. And as he continued, his anecdotes became gruesome and hideous. He also spoke of the agony and shrieked his remorse. During his presence, there was a pin drop silence but when he left the stage there was thunderous applause.

(b) Nehru says that our duty towards the future is greater than our obligation to the past. This is because according to him, the past is past and is gone. We are done with it and we cannot change it. Future is very uncertain and is yet to come. It is our wish and works on how to shape it. Past made us aware of some part of the truth. The future is hidden and it invites us to search for it. One need to struggle a lot to leave his past behind and move forward with what our future awaits for.

(c) Even though the beggar tells the young boy that there is no 'magic formula', he still gives the boy tips on how to realize his dream. He said the boy to work for his dream and whatever he dreamt of, he should achieve it. The boy should move towards the dream all the time. He needs to overcome all the obstacles that will come in his way and keep moving. He also advised the boy to not to expect too much very quickly and one should desire for approval and recognition.

(B) According to me the human beings desires for approval and recognition is a very healthy and motive desire and it can be regarded as better, strong and more intelligent than other human beings or from other fellow scholars who is destructive. This is because they can be egoistic and can harm us and may be proved injurious to health. They may also be detrimental to the individual and society. Therefore, in schools teachers should not use this to motivate students to work.

According to Darwin’s theory of the struggle for existence and selectivity, competition between the individuals is unnecessary and that is very similar to that of the comparison between the ants of an anthill.


When Freda insisted Anne to play with Marian, it brought a protective streak in Anne. He then realized the discomfort that her daughter feels or experienced in the presence of other children out there. She then reminded of her foolish longings to have a child like Freda. She then feels envy and regrets upon looking at Freda. She was baffled by Marian’s questions if she would have Freda as her daughter. And later she realized that it is because of her attitude that her daughter is unhappy and shy. She then realizes her mistakes and reassures Marian.
