1.                 Why did you want to get brinjals?

2.                 From where and how did you get them?

3.                 To whom did the brinjal field belong to and what did he do to you?

4.                 What lesson did you learn after this bad experience?

Hi, I am Drona. I lived in a small village. I loved brinjal sambhar a lot. Near the village there was a field where lots of brinjals grew. It belonged to Bhairav.

 

I went to the field, but did not take a brinjal and run away. Instead, I bent down beside the brinjal plants, so that my mouth would be close to the ground. I asked the field for permission to take the brinjal. Pretending myself to be the field, I permitted myself to take as many as I wish . I took a dozen brinjal and went home. I wanted to eat some more brinjal sambhar, so I went to the field the second time and then repeated the same.

 

Bhairav was the owner of the field, he knew somebody was stealing his brinjals. He was a giant and the most hard working man in the village. He decided to keep a watch on his field. One night he saw me going to the brinjals and asking the field for permission to take the brinjals, as usual. But before I could move to pluck the brinjals, Bhairav pounced on me and carried me to the edge of a pond. Then he dip me hundred times or even more in a pond. I got home very late that night.

 

After that incident I never stole any brinjals again. I learnt a lesson that stealing is taking something that belongs to another person. The honest way of getting goods is to buy them with money.

Grade 4 Comprehension Answer Key

                            ANDROCLUS AND THE LION

In Rome there was once a poor slave whose name was Androclus. His master was a cruel man, and so unkind to him that at last Androclus ran away. He hid himself in the woods for many days; but there was no food to be found, and he grew weak and sick. One day he crept into a cave and lay down, and soon he was fast asleep. After a while a great noise woke him up. A lion had come into the cave, and was roaring loudly. Androclus was very much afraid, for he felt sure that the beast would kill him. Soon, however, he saw that the lion was not angry, but that he limped as though his foot hurt him.

 Then Androclus grew so bold that he took hold of the lion's lame paw to see what was the matter. The lion stood quite still, and rubbed his head against the man's shoulder. He seemed to say,— "I know that you will help me."Androclus lifted the paw from the ground, and saw that it was a long, sharp thorn which hurt the lion so much. He took the end of the thorn in his fingers; then he gave a strong, quick pull, and out it came. The lion was full of joy. He jumped about like a dog, and licked the hands and feet of his new friend.

Androclus was not at all afraid after this; and when night came, he and the lion lay down and slept side by side. For a long time, the lion brought food to Androclus every day; and the two became such good friends, that Androclus found his new life, a very happy one.

One day some soldiers who were passing through the wood found Androclus in the cave. They knew who he was, and so took him back to Rome. It was the law at that time that every slave who ran away from his master should be made to fight a hungry lion. So a fierce lion was shut up for a while without food, and a time was set for the fight.

 When the day came, thousands of people crowded to see the sport. They went to such places at that time, very much as people now-a-days go to see a circus or a game of baseball. The door opened, and poor Androclus was brought in. He was very afraid, for the roars of the lion could already be heard. He looked up, and saw that there was no pity in the thousands of faces around him.Then the hungry lion rushed in. With a single bound he reached the poor slave. Androclus gave a great cry, not of fear, but of gladness. It was his old friend, the lion of the cave.

 The people, who had expected to see the man killed by the lion, were filled with wonder. They saw Androclus put his arms around the lion's neck; they saw the lion lie down at his feet, and lick them lovingly; they saw the great beast rub his head against the slave's face as though he wanted to be petted. They could not understand what it all meant. After a while they asked Androclus to tell them about it. So he stood up before them, and, with his arm around the lion's neck, told how he and the beast had lived together in the cave.

"I am a man," he said; "but no man has ever befriended me. This poor lion alone has been kind to me; and we love each other as brothers."

The people were not so bad that they could be cruel to the poor slave now. "Live and be free!" they cried. "Live and be free!"

Others cried, "Let the lion go free too! Give both of them their liberty!"

And so Androclus was set free, and the lion was given to him for his own. And they lived together in Rome for many years.

Grade 8 Comphrehension

I.     Read Passage A carefully, and then answer questions given below. 

 

Passage A : In this extract from a story called 'The Hound of the Baskervilles', Dr Watson walks across moorland to track down a mysterious and frightening stranger. 

The man in the hut

 The sun was already sinking when I reached the summit of the hill, and the long slopes beneath me were all golden-green on one side and grey shadow on the other. A haze lay low upon the farthest sky-line, out of which jutted the fantastic shapes of Belliver and Vixen Tor (names of hills). Over the wide expanse there was no sound and no movement. One great grey bird, a gull or curlew, soared aloft in the blue heaven. He and I seemed to be the only living things between the huge arch of the sky and the desert beneath it. The barren scene, the sense of loneliness, and the mystery and urgency of my task all struck a chill into my heart. Down beneath me in a cleft of the hills there was a circle of the old stone huts, and in the middle of them there was one which retained sufficient roof to act as a screen against the weather. My heart leaped within me as I saw it. This must be the burrow where the stranger lurked. At last my foot was on the threshold of his hiding-place — his secret was within my grasp. 

As I approached the hut, I satisfied myself that the place had indeed been used as a habitation. A vague pathway among the boulders led to the dilapidated opening which served as a door. All was silent within. The unknown might be lurking there, or he might be prowling on the moor. My nerves tingled with the sense of adventure. Throwing aside my cigarette, I closed my hand upon the butt of my revolver, and, walking swiftly up to the door, I looked in. The place was empty. 

But there were ample signs that I had not come upon a false scent. This was certainly where the man lived. Some blankets rolled in a waterproof lay upon that very stone slab upon which neolithic man had once slumbered. The ashes of a fire were heaped in a rude grate. Beside it lay some cooking utensils and a bucket half-full of water. A litter of empty tins showed that the place had been occupied for some time. In the middle of the hut a flat stone served the purpose of a table, and upon this stood a small cloth bundle. It contained a loaf of bread, a tinned tongue, and two tins of preserved peaches. 

Outside the sun was sinking low and the west was blazing with scarlet and gold. Its reflection was shot back in ruddy patches by the distant pools which lay amid the Great Grimpen Mire(an area of marshland) .There were the two towers of Baskerville Hall, and there a distant blur of smoke which marked the village of Grimpen. All was sweet and mellow and peaceful in the golden evening light, and yet as I looked at them my soul shared none of the peace of Nature, but quivered at the vagueness and the terror of that interview which every instant was bringing nearer. With tingling nerves, but a fixed purpose, I sat in the dark recess of the hut and waited with sombre patience for the coming of its tenant. 

 

And then at last I heard him. Far away came the sharp clink of a boot striking upon a stone. Then another and yet another, coming nearer and nearer. I shrank back into the darkest corner, and cocked the pistol in my pocket, determined not to be discovered until I had an opportunity of seeing something of the stranger. There was a long pause, which showed that he had stopped. Then once more the footsteps approached and a shadow fell across the opening of the hut. 


4a.Re-read the passage and mention ten points focusing on the             features of the lands Dr Watson travelled through and his thoughts and feelings on his journey.    (10)                                                                 

4b. Then summarize the points in your own words. It should be in about 130 words.  (5)
