Subject- Repeated theft in Gobind Road.


Through the columns of your esteemed newspaper I’d like to express my views of the recent cases of theft in Gobind Road. The past few weeks have witnessed more than one hundred theft cases here. Sometimes a cycle is stealing from someone’s veranda or a bike is stolen from someone’s garden. This is not an occasional practice anymore. There are a group of unidentified people who are carrying this process ahead.

The local authorities have been informed about the scenario. A week ago, the residents of Gobind Road gave a written complaint to the local town Police and the Municipality so that the matter is taken care of. But even after the complaint there has not been any notable action from the authorities and the cycle of theft still continues.

If this continues, it will become really difficult to spend life here. This is a major issue now since a lot of people have gone through major losses. There is an urgent need for the higher authorities to interfere into the matter and appoint special forces to catch the thieves.

She removed the bangles and gave them away to Gandhiji.He used to talk jokingly to small girls and created distaste for ornaments and created a desire in them to part with the jewellery for the sake of the poor. He motivated them to donate their jewellery for social usage.Kasturbai didn’t appreciate this habit of Gandhiji. Once she stated calmly, ‘You don’t wear jewels, it is easy for you to get around the boys. But what about our daughters-in-law ? They would surely want them.“Well!” Gandhiji put in mildly, “our children are young and when they grow up they will not surely choose wives who are fond of wearing jewellery.” Kasturbai was very upset with the answer.Gandhiji was determined to keep the jewels to raise community fund. He was of the opinion that a public worker should accept no costly gifts. He believed that he should not own anything costly, whether given or earned. Kasturbai was a female with a desire to adorn.

Read the passage given below and complete the statements that follow choosing the most appropriate options from those given below.

Cheraw is the most colourful Mizo dance. Bamboos are used in this dance. Hence the dancer moves by stepping alternatively in and out from between and across a pair of horizontal bamboos, held against the ground by people sitting face to face at either side. They tap the bamboos open and close in rhythmic beats. Two bases support the bamboos, placed horizontally one at each end. The bamboos, when clapped, produce a shaip sound, which forms the rhythm of the dance. It indicates the timing of the dance as well. The dancers step in and out to the beats of the bamboos with ease and grace. The patterns and stepping of the dance have many variations. Sometimes the stepping are made in imitation of the movements of birds, sometimes the swaying of trees and so on.

Little is known about the origin of Cheraw. It may be possible that the forefathers of the Mizos brought it with them when they left home in far east- Asia. Cheraw is performed on any occasion these days. But so goes the legend. It used to be performed in earlier times only to ensure a safe passage for a dead child to paradise.
