1. Make a precis of the given passage and suggest a suitable heading:

We're dealing with a very dramatic and very fundamental paradigm shift here. You may try" to
lubricate your' social interactions with personality techniques and skills, but in the process, you
may truncate the vital character base. You can't have the fruits without the roots. It's the principle
of sequencing: Private victory precedes Public Victory. Self-mastery and self-discipline are the
foundation of good relationship with others. Some people say that you have to like yourself
before you can like others. I think' that idea has merit but if you don't know yourself, if you don't
control yourself, if you don't have mastery over yourself, it's very hard to like yourself, except in
some short-term, psych-up, superficial way. Real self-respect comes from dominion over*self
from true independence. Independence is an achievement. Inter dependence is a choice only
independent people can make. Unless we are willing to achieve real independence, it's foolish to
try to develop human relations skills. We might try. We might even have some degree of success
when the sun is shining. But when the difficult times come - and they will - We won't have the
foundation to keep things together. The most important ingredient we put into any relationship is
not what we say or what we do, but what we are. And if our words and our actions come from
superficial human relations techniques (the Personality Ethic) rather than from our own inner
core (the character Ethic), others will sense that duplicity. We simply won't be able to create and
sustain the foundation necessary" for effective interdependence. The techniques and skills that
really make a difference in human interaction are the ones that almost naturally flow from a truly
independent character. So the place to begin building any relationship is inside ourselves, inside
our Circle of Influence, our own character. As we become independent - Proactive, centered in
correct principles, value driven and able to organize and execute around the priorities in our life
with integrity - we then can choose to become interdependent - capable of building rich,
enduring, highly productive relationships with other people.

2. Read the following passage and answer the questions given at the end, in YOUR OWN
WORDS. (20)

We look before and after, wrote Shelley, and pine for what is not. It is said that this is what
distinguishes us from the animals and that they, unlike us, live always for and in the movement
and have neither hopes nor regrets. Whether it is so or not I do not know yet it is undoubtedly
one of our distinguishing mental attributes: we are actually conscious of our life in time and not
merely of our life at the moment of experiencing it. And as a result we find many grounds for
melancholy and foreboding. Some of us prostrate ourselves on the road way in Trafalgar Square
or in front of the American Embassy because we are fearful that our lives, or more
disinterestedly those of our descendants will be cut short by nuclear war. If only as" squirrels or
butterflies are supposed to do, we could let the future look after itself and be content to enjoy the
pleasures of the morning breakfast, the brisk walk to the office through autumnal mist or winter
fog, the mid-day sunshine that sometimes floods through windows, tne warm, peaceful winter
evenings by the fireside at home. Yet all occasions for contentment are so often spoiled for us, to
a greater or lesser degree by our individual temperaments, by this strange human capacity for
foreboding and regret - regret for things which we cannot undo and foreboding for things which
may never happen at all. Indeed were it not for the fact that over breaking through our human
obsessions with the tragedy of time, so enabling us to enjoy at any rate some fleeting moments
untroubled by vain yearning or apprehension, our life would not be intolerable at all. As it is, we
contrive, everyone of us, to spoil it to a remarkable degree.
