    Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
    (1) During my growing up years, my siblings and I were taught - both at home and school/ to worship the photos and idols of the deities of our respective religions. When we grew a little older, we were introduced to scriptures like the Bhagwad Gita, Bible normal Quran; we were told that there are lot of life lessons to be learnt from these holy books. We were then introduced to mythological stories, through which we learnt about ethics and morality. I also learnt to be respectful towards my parents who made my life comfortable with their love and sacrifice/ and my teachers who guided me to become a good student and a responsible citizen.
    (2) Much later in life, I realised that though we learn much from our respective scriptures, there is a lot to learn from our surroundings. This realisation dawned upon me when I learnt to enquire and explore. Everything around us-sun, moon, stars, rain, rivers, stones, rocks, birds, plants and animals-teach us many valuable life lessons.
    (3) No wonder that besides the scriptures, in many cultures, nature is also worshipped. The message that is transmitted is that of maintaining environment and ecological balance. People are taught to live in harmony with nature and recognise that divinity is everywhere.
    (4) Nature is a great teacher. A river never stops flowing. If it finds an obstruction in the form of a heavy rock, the river water fights to remove it from its path or finds an alternative path to move ahead. This teaches us not only to be nurturing but, also to be progressive in life; keeping the fighting spirit alive.
    (5) We learn a lot in nature's lap but are unwilling to comprehend it. Rather than being considerate to our surroundings and environment, we are being senselessly insensitive. Overcome by greed, we are destroying the nature, the extent of which is so profound that we are frequently facing natural disasters like drought, flood and landslides. We refuse to accept that nature is angry with us. We forget that if the dam of patience bursts, the result is destruction.
    (6) However, it is never too late to learn, if we imbibe the life-giving and nurturing aspects of the Mother Nature, the quality of our life will improve dramatically.
    (i) What do the mythological stories teach us?
    (ii) What is the message given by the writer about nature?
    (iii) What lesson of life do we learn from rivers?
    (iv) What are the causes of frequent natural disasters?
    (v) Find a word in Para 1 which means the same as 'gods'.
    (vi) Find a word in Para 2 means the same as 'examine'?
    (vii) Find a word in Para 3 which is the antonym of 'received'.
    (viii) Find a word in Para 6 which means the same as 'assimilate'.
