Q.11 Make a precis of the passage given below about one-third of its length. Also give a suitable title: [1+3=4]
Democracy is based on the principle of equal freedom, equal opportunity and equal rights for all. This is possible if people develop the right democratic temper which can be made possible only by mass education. Equal opportunity means that all should have the opportunity to receive education. Our education should be useful for boys and girls and should build up their character too. In past days education was confined to the people of high or rich class. But it should be open to all. In the distribution of educational opportunity no discrimination should be made between the rich and poor.
A man comes in the world when he is born and he leaves it when he dies. He plays, works, eats and sleeps. Sometimes he peels into laughter, the next time he sheds tears. His main purpose of living in the world is to attain pleasure and to avoid pains. He comes across success and failure in his attempts to get pleasure. He makes some people his friends and other people his enemy. He maintains his good and bad relations with the people of the world. He earns name and fame. health and wealth. knowledge and power. He thus gets maturity of body and mind. Curiously enough all his achievements come to an end one day, when he leaves this world and goes empty handed to the other world.
