Section 3 Reading Comprehension
PASSAGE 1: Progress in life depends a good deal on crossing one threshold after another. Sometime ago a man watched his little nephew trying to write his name. It was hard work, very hard work. The little boy had arrived at an effort threshold. Today, he writes his name with comparative ease. No new threshold confronts him. This is the way with all of us. As soon as we cross one threshold, as soon as we conquer one difficulty, a new difficulty appears, or should appear. Some people make the mistake of steering clear of thresholds. Anything that requires genuine thinking and use of energy, they avoid. They prefer to stay in a rut where thresholds are not met. Probably, they have been at their job a number of years. Things are easy for them. They make no effort to seek out new obstacles to over come. Real progress stops under such circumstances. Some middle-aged and elderly people greatly enrich their lives by continuing to cross thresholds. One man went into an entirely new business when he was past middle age and made a success to it. De Morgan did not start to write novels until he was past sixty. Psychologists have discovered that man can learn throughout the life. And it is undoubtedly better to try, and fail than not to try at all. Here, one can be placed in the category of the Swiss mountaineer of whom it was said, “He died Climbing”., when a new difficulty rises to obstruct your path, do not complain. Accept the challenge. Determine to cross this threshold as you have crossed numerous other thresholds in your past life. In the world of the poet, do not rest but strive to pass ’from dream to grander dream’.

Nationalism, of course, is a curios phenomenon which at a certain stage in a country’s history give s life, growth and unity but, at the same time, it has a tendency to limit one, because one thinks of ones country as something different from the rest of the world. Ones perspective changes and one is continuously thinking of ones own struggles and virtues and failing to the exclusion of other thoughts. The result is that the same nationalism which is the symbol of growth for the people becomes a symbol of the cessation of that growth in the mind. Nationalism, when it becomes unsuccessful sometimes goes on spreading in an aggressive way and becomes a danger internationally. Whatever line of thought, you follow, you arrive at the conclusion that some kind of balance must be found. Otherwise something that was good can turn evil. Culture, which is essentially good becomes not only static but aggressive and something that breeds conflicts and hatred when looked at from a wrong point of view. How are you to find the balance, I don’t know. Apart from the political and economic problems of the age, perhaps that is the greatest problem today because behind it there is a tremendous search for something which it cannot find. We turn to economic theories because they have an undoubted importance. It is folly to talk of culture or even of god when human beings starve and die. Before one can talk about anything else one must provide normal essentials of life to human beings. That is where economics comes in. human beings today are not in a mood to tolerate this suffering and starvation and inequality when they see that the burden is not equally shared. Other profit while the bear the burden.
