Directions—(Q. 63 to 67) Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions which follow—

SANTINIKETAN, Aug. 17, 1998 : The rainy season has returned, and the man is back at his work, He is Pannalal Patel, the man who has completed 96 years, and is still going strong.

Pannalal was once a ‘terrorist’. Then he turned into a Gandhian. At present his mission is ‘Meen Mangal’ or ‘the well-being of fish’, as he calls it.

Come the rains, and Pannalal would release millions of young salmons into rivers following through the neighbourhood. He says that water without fish is just as absurd as fish without water.

On Independence Day Eve he had, as if, an appointment with the Ajoy, the river he loves and adores.

Choked up with silt and sand from bank to bank, the river remains almost dry throughout the year except in the rainy season. Once called ‘the crazy river’ for often changing its course. Ajoy is now better known for the great destruction it causes, at intervals of some years, by flooding the villages on its banks. It then washes away people and cattle and houses, and brings great misery.

The appointed day arrived. It was a cloudy afternoon at Palitpur, the venue of the programme where a new bridge has been built across the river.

Short speeches were made. Songs were sung. Mr. Patel took a handful of the young salmon and threw them into the water–once, twice, thrice. Others followed him. The hero of the day looked happy, and a smile lit up his wrinkled face.

But some fisherman in the crowd were rather sceptical about the usefulness of the programme. Will the fish, when grown up, return to the same waters and be caught in their nets ? perhaps not. They talked among themselves.

Mr. Patel, However, does not bother himself about who catches how much fish in which waters. He himself is a complete vegetarian. His only concern is the well-being of fish.

We were in class when the headmaster came in, followed by a ‘new fellow’, not wearing the school uniform and a school servant carrying a large desk. Those who had been asleep woke up, and everyone rose as if surprised at his work. The headmaster made a sign to us to sit down. Then turning to the class master, he said to him in a low voice : “Mr. Roger, here is a pupil whom I recommend to your care.” The new boy was wearing a tight green jacket, yellow trousers and a strange cap which soon attracted the attention of the hole class.

The new boy was still holding his strange cap on his knees even after the prayers were over. ‘Rise,’ said the master. The boy stood up. His cap fell. The whole class began to laugh. He stood to pick it up. A neighbour knocked it down again with his elbow. He picked it up once more, ‘Get rid of your helmet,’ said the master, who was a bit of a joker. There was a burst of laughter from the boys, which so throughly shamed the boy that he didn’t know whether to keep his cap in his hand, leave it on the ground, or put it on his head. He sat down again and placed it on his knee.

‘Rise,’ repeated the master, ‘and tell me your name.’ The new boy articulated in a stammering voice an unintelligible name, ‘Again !’ said the master.
