Question:  Read the passage given below.

1. Maharana Pratap ruled over Mewar only for 25 years. However, he accomplished so much grandeur during his reign that his glory surpassed the boundaries of countries and time turning him into an immortal personality. He along with his kingdom became a synonym for valour, sacrifice and patriotism. Mewar had been a leading Rajput kingdom even before Maharana Pratap occupied the throne. Kings of Mewar, with the cooperation of their nobles and subjects, had established such traditions in the kingdom, as augmented their magnificence despite the hurdles of having a smaller area under their command and less population. There did come a few thorny occasions when the flag of the kingdom seemed sliding down. Their flag once again heaved high in the sky thanks to the gallantry and brilliance of the people of Mewar.

My Aim in Life (English Essays) #eduvictors #essays

I want to be an engineer in life. Life is full of variety. There are different types of careers. Because of differences in the natures and abilities of persons, people take up different careers. Opportunities also matter. Sometimes people may have abilities but not opportunities. Then they have to be satisfied with something different. I am lucky in this respect.  My father is an officer with the Government of India. I am the only child of my parents. Luckily I am a good student too. So,if I am selected for the engineering competition, money will be no problem. And I am confident that I will be selected. I am training myself to study seriously from that angle.

CBSE Class 10 - English Literature - Poem - Fire and Ice (Summary and Questions and Answers)(#class10English)(#cbse2021)(#eduvictors)

CBSE Class 10 - English Literature - Poem - Fire and Ice (Summary and  Questions and Answers)



Summary:

‘Fire and Ice’ is a short poem by Robert Frost. In this poem, the poet says that people knit two croaking notions about the destruction of the world. Some say it will end in fire while others say it will end in ice. According to the poet  experience about human desire, he mentions that the ‘fire’ stands for desire, greed, avarice or lust. The more you try to satisfy them, the more they grow. There is no end to it. They spread rapidly like fire and engulf your whole life. One becomes selfish and sometimes cruel also. On the other hand, ‘ice’ according to the poet, stands for hatred, coldness and rigidity. One becomes insensitive and indifferent towards the feelings of others. The poet says that both fire and ice are growing with such a rapid speed that the world will soon perish either way, in fire or in ice. The poem, very artistically, underpins the philosophy that if we don’t control our emotions and let them rule us then they would bring the world to a catastrophic end.
