    'Proper' social roles
    Here is a story from the Adi Parvan of the Mahabharata Once Drona, a Brahmans who taught archery to the Kuru princes, was approached by Ekalavya, a forest-dwelling nishada (a hunting community). When Drona, who knew the dharma, refused to have him as his pupil, Ekalavya returned to the forest, prepared an image of Drona out of clay, and treating it as his teacher, began to practise on his own. In due course, he acquired great skill in archery. One day, the Kuru princes went hunting and their dog, wandering in the woods, came upon Ekalavya. When the dog smelt the dark nishada wrapped in black deer skin, his body caked with dirt, it began to bark. Annoyed, Ekalavya shot seven arrows into its mouth. When the dog returned to the Pandavas, they were amazed at this superb display of archerty. They tracked down Ekalavya, who introduced himself as a pupil of Drona.  
    Drona had once told his favourite students Arjuna, that he would be unrivalled amongst his pupils. Arjuna now reminded Drona about this. Drona approached Ekalavya, who immediately acknowledge and honoured him as his teacher. When Drona demanded his right thumb as his fee, Ekalavya unhesitatingly cut it off and offered it. But thereafter, when he shot with his remaining fingers, he was no longer as fast as he had been before. Thus, Drona kept his word: no one was better than Arjuna.
    (i) Why did Drona refuse to nave Ekalavya as his pupil?
    (ii) How did Ekalavya react to the demand of his Guru?
    (iii) Mention two versions of Guru - Shishya Parampara mentioned in the given extract.

    Read the following paragraph carefully and answer the questions that follow:
    The Child Sad
    This is perhaps one of the most poignant descriptions by Bernier:
    At Lahore, I saw a most beautiful young widow sacrificed, who could not, I think, have been more than twelve years of age. The poor little creature appeared more dead than alive when she approached the dreadful pit: the agony of her mind cannot be described; she trembled and wept bitterly; but three or four of the Brahmana's, assisted by an old woman who held her under the arm, forced the unwilling victim toward the fatal spot, seated her on the wood, tied her hands and feet, lest she should run away, and in that situation the innocent creature was burnt alive. I found it difficult to repress my feelings and to prevent their bursting forth into clamorous and unavailing rage...
    (i) Why did Bernier consider this treatment as a crucial marker of the difference between western and eastern societies?
    (ii) What role did the Indian patriarchal society play towards this social evil?
    (iii) Compare the condition of the women of the era mentioned above to that of today.

    'British element is gone but they have left the mis-chief behind'
    Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel said:
    It is no use saying that we ask for separate electorates, because it is good for us. We have heard it long enough. We have heard it for years, and as a result of this agitation we are now a separate nation ... Can you show me one free country where there are separate electorates? If so, I shall be prepared to accept it. But in this unfortunate country if this separate electorate is going to be persisted in, even after the division of the country, woe betide the country; it is not worth living m. Therefore, I say, it is not for my good alone it is for your own good that I say it, forget the past. One day? we may be united ... The British element is gone, but they have left the mischief behind. We do not want to perpetuate that mischief (Hear. hear). When the British introduced this element they had not expected that they will have to go so soon. They wanted it for their easy administration. That is all right. But they have left the legacy behind. Are we to get out of it or not?
