Directions (Qs. 1-8) : Answer the following questions 1 honey. This st. by selecting the correct/most appropriate options.
The art of Madhubani painting is the traditional style developed in the Mithila region, in the villages around Madhubani, Bihar. Madhubani literally means a forest of honey. This style of painting has been traditionally used by the women of the region, though today men are also involved to meet the demand. The work is done on freshly plan mud walls. For commercial purposes, it is now being done on paper, cloth, etc.
The paintings are basically of religious nature. They are done in the special rooms of their homes (in the Pooja room, ritual. area, bridal room), on the main village walls, etc., for ceremonial or ritualistic purposes. The women offer prayers to the deity before starting the work. Figures from nature and mythology are adapted to suit their style. The themes and designs widely painted are the worship of Hindu deities such as Krishna, Rama, Shiva, Durga, Lakshmi, Saraswati, Sun and Moon, Tulsi plant, court scenes, wedding scenes and other social events taking place around them.
Floral, animal and bird motifs, geometrical designs are used to fill up all the gaps. There is hardly any empty space in this style. Cotton wrapped around a bamboo stick forms the brush. The colours applied are prepared by the artists. The skill is handed down the generations, and hence the traditional designs and patterns are widely maintained. It is believed that the genesis of Madhubani paintings came about when King Janaka asked for paintings to be developed for his daughter Sita’s wedding.

Directions (Qs. 24 – 30): Answer the following questions by selecting the correct/most appropriate options.
A remarkable feature of Edison’s inventions was their basic simplicity. There were innumerable scientists possessing deep knowledge of electricity, chemistry, etc., but it was this unschooled genius who succeeded where they failed. What were his unique qualities? Firstly, he had an uncanny ability to judge the practical use of any scientific fact. Secondly, he was blessed with patience and perseverance. He would try out countless ideas till he found the right one. Third was his business acumen, which enabled him to earn the large sums of money necessary to conduct experimental work.
Edison’s enthusiasm for work and optimistic attitude ensured a long and productive life. Only after crossing the age of seventy-five did he start slowing down. During his final illness, his curiosity about his condition, medicines, and treatment, made the doctors think that that possibly he was taking this too as one of his scientific investigations! He passed away on 18 October, 1931, at the ripe old age of eighty-four.
During his lifetime itself Edison became one of the most famous men in the world. Honours were showered on him. Among them was the congressional gold medal in 1960, he was for his contributions to human welfare. In 1960, he posthumously elected to the Hall of Fame for Great Americans at New York University. But the tribute that was most eloquent was quite unintended. The authorities contemplated switching off the power supply in New York, the scene of his triumph in 1882, for two minutes as a mark of respect on his death. But 1931 was not 1882. Since normal life would have come to a standstill by the two-minute power cutoff, the idea was given up. There could be no greater tribute to the man than this negative tribute!
