Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
Unable to stand his persuasions any more, his mother agreed to see the picture on the last day. They went to the night show. She sat in the women’s class. She had to screw up all her courage to sit down for the picture. She had a feeling of great relief as long as the slide advertisement, and trailer pieces lasted. When the picture began, her heart beat fast. Her husband talking to his wife on the screen, playing with his child, singing, walking, dressing, same clothes, same voice, same anger, same joy-she felt that the whole thing was a piece of cruelty inflicted on her. She shut her eyes several times, but the picture fascinated her; it had the fascination of a thing which is painful. And then came a scene in which he reclined in a chair reading a newspaper. How could he sit absorbed in a newspaper! In their years of married life, how often had she quarreled with him for it! Even on the last day, he had sat thus after dinner, in his canvas chair, with the newspaper before him; she had lost her temper at the sight of it and said, ‘You and your newspaper! I could as well go and sleep of the rest of the day,’ and left his company. When she saw him later, he had fallen back in his chair with the sheets of newspaper over his face…… This was an unbearable scene. À sob burst from her.
Sambu, sitting in his seat on the men’s side, liked to see his father in the newspaper scene because the girl would presently come and ask him what he was reading, annoy him with questions, and get what she deserved; father would shout: ‘Kumari! Will you go out or shall I throw you out!’ That girl didn’t know how to behave with father. And Sambu intensely disliked her…………..
While awaiting eagerly the snubbing of the girl, Sambu heard a burst of sobbing in the women’s class: presently there was a scramble of feet and a cry. “Put the light on! Accident to someone!’ The show was stopped. People went thither. Sambu, cursing this interruption, stood up on a bench to see what the matter was. He saw his mother being lifted from the floor. “That is my mother! Is she also dead?’ screamed Sambu and jumped over the barrier. He wailed and cried. Someone told him, ‘She has only fainted. Nothing has happened to her. Don’t make a fuss. “They carried her out and laid her in the passage. The lights were put out again, people returned to their seats and the show continued. Mother opened her eyes, sat up and said, ‘Let us go away.’
How long did Sambu’s mother feel relieved in the theatre?

Read the passage given below and answer the questions,
Swami Vivekananda was born in aristocratic Bengali Kayastha family of Calcutta on January 12, 1863. Vivekananda’s parents influenced his thinking-his father by his rationality and his mother by her religious temperament. From his childhood, he showed an inclination towards spirituality and God realization. His guru, Ramakrishna, taught him Advaita Vedanta (non-dualism); that all religious are true and that services to man was the most effective worship of God: After the death of his guru, Vivekananda became a wandering monk, touring the Indian subcontinent and acquiring first-hand knowledge of conditions in India.
A spiritual genius of commanding intellect and power, Vivekananda crammed immense labour and achievement into his short life. The youthful Vivekananda embraced the agnostic philosophies of the Western mind along with the worship of science.
At the same time, vehement in his desire to know the truth about God, he questioned people of holy reputation, asking them if they had seen God. He found such a person in Sri Ramakrishna, who became his master, allayed his doubts, gave him God vision, and transformed him into sage and prophet with authority to teach.:
After Sri Ramakrishna’s death, Vivekananda renounced the world and criss-crossed India. His mounting compression for India’s people drove him to seek their material help from the West. Accepting and opportunity to represent Hinduism at Chicago’s Parliament of Religions in 1893, Vivekananda won instant celebrity in America and a ready forum for his spiritual teaching. For three years he spread the Vedanta philosophy and religion in America and England and then returned to India to found the Ramakrishna Math and Mission. Exhorting his nation to spiritual greatness, he wakened India to a new national consciousness. He died July 4, 1902, after a second, much shorter sojoum in the West. His lectures and writings have been gathered into nine volumes.
