Q.5 Transcribe the following paragraph. (7 marks)

Simple living said the Prophet Mohammed sets my heart on higher thoughts. There is
a need to follow simplicity in our life. In todays world of increasing pomp and show,
when everybody is joining the rat race of displaying his wealth, we should prefer to live
simply, without any artificiality. Mahatma Gandhis life shows us that simplicity in life
always encourages maturity of mind. Instead of wasting wealth in various socio-religious
ceremonies, we should be decent and undemonstrative. People who are really good
need not show that they are good. In the same manner, the sophistication of our life
style needs no raw display of wealth, it would rather appear in our character or in the
manner we carry ourselves. People, who work hard and are the best servants of
humanity, live in a quiet frugal manner. We should consider it a sin to waste money
when we are aware of the fact that millions of our compatriots are living below the
poverty line. Nowadays, in increasing consumerist culture, where everything is on sale,
we should adhere to the simple way of life if we want to preserve human attributes in us.
