Q. 1. Read the extract and complete the activities.

I placed on the summit the offering to God that I had carried with me. This is in accord with my religion. Both my wife and are Buddhists. I could not knee because of my clothes and equipment. But I offered a silent prayer in my heart.

The offering were biscuits, candy and little blue pencil. My youngest daughter, Nima had given me the pencil before I left home. She asked me put it on top of the mountain as her offering. It was an ordinary blue pencil, not even long one, but it was her prized possessions.

As I put it down, I pointed it out to Hillary. He gave me big smile, showing that he understood.

Then got out the flags which had on piece of string about four feet long, fastened one end to my ice axe and Hillary took pictures as I held it up. As I had to bring my ice axe down with me, l buried one end of the string in the ice on the top, and the other in snow on the slope down below. When we left, they were lying flat against the summit.

I was very thirsty. I took out a water tumbler for a drink, but found the water in the metal container had frozen so I couldn’t quench my thirst. I ate some biscuits and offered some to Hillary.

Eight years have passed

Since I placed my cherry seed in the grass.

“Must have a tree of my own “, I said,

And watered it once and went to bed

And forgot but cherries have a way of growing,

Thought on one’s caring very much or knowing.

And suddenly that summer near the end of May,

It was very small, five months child,

Lost in the tall grass running wild.

Goat ate the leaves, the grass cutter Scythe

Split it apart and a monsoon blight

Shriveled the slender stem….. Even so,

Next spring I watched three new shoots grow,
