If If you can keep your head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies, Or being hated, don’t give way to hating, And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise.
If you can dream and not make dreams your master; If you can think and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two impostors just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to broken, And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools.

भाग V: भाषा II हिन्दी

निर्देश: गद्यांश को पढ़कर निम्नलिखित प्रश्नों (प्र. सं. 121&129) में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। सृष्टि के चेतन पदार्थों का जो नियम है कि वे कभी एक से नहीं रहते वरन् दिन प्रतिदिन परिवर्तन की सान पर चढ़ते ही जाते हैं। यह नियम भाषा के सम्बन्ध में पूरी रीति पर लगता है। क्योंकि कुछ ऐसा मालूम होता है कि रुधिर और अस्थि मनुष्य के शरीर से उतना निकट सम्बन्ध नहीं रखते, जितना उनकी भाषा रखती है और इसी कारण बड़े से बड़े पंडित के आगे कोई अशुद्ध संस्कृत शब्द बोलिए तो वह इतना न खटकेगा जितना एक सामान्य से सामान्य बेमुहाविरे हिंदी शब्द कान को चोट पहुँचाएगा, क्योंकि संस्कृत अब बोल चाल की भाषा नहीं रह गई है। विचार कर के देखिए तो जो हिंदी हम आजकल बोलते हैं, वह पहले क्या थी और अब क्या है। अब फारसी उर्दू शब्द उसमें मिलते जाते हैं क्योंकि जब आपके बड़े-बड़े प्रमाणिक हिंदी कवियों ने फारसी अरबी के शब्द ग्रहण किए हैं तो वह हमारे और आपके निकाले वे सब जो हमारी भाषा के नस-नस में अंत: प्रविष्ठ में हो रहे हैं कैसे निकाले जा सकते हैं। बल्कि, विरुद्धता दिखलाना वैसा ही है जैसा किसी वेगगामिनी नदी के प्रवाह को अकेले एक हाथ से रोककर उलट देने का प्रयत्न करना है। जिस तरह ये शब्द सर्वसाधारण अपनी भाषा में प्रचलित कर लेते हैं या जिस तरह के शब्द अपने नित्य के बोल चाल से लोग निकालकर फेंक देते हैं और उस पर आप को कुछ भी अधिकार नहीं है। आप मनुष्यों की भाषा तभी बदल सकते हैं जब जुलू या हबशी की जात का कोई आदमी इन देशों में पैदा कर सके या इससे भी बढ़कर कोई दूसरा प्राकृतिक अनर्थ जो सर्वथा प्रकृति विरुद्ध हो कर सकें। क्योंकि यह कैसे संभव है कि प्रबल कालचक्र अपनी निशानी सब चीजों पर न छोड़ जाए। मुसलमानों के अत्याचार का फल जैसा हम अपनी रीति-रसम सामाजिक व्यवहार अपनी और अपने यहाँ की स्त्रियों की दशा सब में पाते हैं तब यह क्यों।

निर्देश: गद्यांश को पढ़कर निम्नलिखित प्रश्नों (प्र. सं. 130&135) में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। ‘शब्द की आकर्षण शक्ति’ न्यूटन की आकर्षण शक्ति से लवमात्र भी कम नहीं कही जा सकती, बल्कि शब्द की इस शक्ति को न्यूटन की आकर्षण शक्ति से विशेष कहना चाहिए। इसलिए कि जिस आकर्षण शक्ति को न्यूटन ने प्रकट किया है वह केवल प्रत्यक्ष में काम दे सकती है। सूर्य पृथ्वी को अपनी ओर खींचता है, पृथ्वी चन्द्रमण्डल को, ऐसे ही जितने बड़े पदार्थ हैं, सब छोटे को आकर्षित कर रहे हैं। किंतु एक पदार्थ दूसरे को तभी आकर्षित करता है जब वे दोनों एक दूसरे के मुकाबले में हों। पर शब्द की आकर्षण शक्ति में यह आवश्यक नहीं है कि शब्द की आकर्षण शक्ति तभी ठहर सकती हो जब नेत्र भी वहाँ योग देता हो। इन शब्दों का जितना ही अधिक समूह बढ़ता जाएगा उतनी ही उनमें आकर्षण शक्ति भी अधिक होती जाएगी। प्रत्येक जाति के धर्म ग्रंथ इसके प्रमाण हैं। वेदादि धर्म-ग्रंथ जो इतने माननीय हैं सो इसीलिए कि उनमें धर्म का उपदेश ऐसे शब्द समूहों में है जो चित्त को अपनी ओर खींच लेते हैं और ऐसा चित्त में गड़ के बैठ जाते हैं कि हटाए नहीं हटते। न्यूटन ने जिस आकर्षण शक्ति को प्रकट किया वह उनके पहले किसी के दिनों को आकर्षित न कर सकती थी। वृक्ष से फल का टूट कर नीचे गिरना साधारण-सी बात है पर किसी के मन में इसका कोई असर नहीं होता। न्यूटन के चित्त में अकस्मात् आया कि ‘‘यह फल ऊपर न जा नीचे को क्यों गिरा?” अवश्य इसमें कोई बात है। देर तक सोचने के उपरांत उसने निश्चय किया कि इसका कारण यही है कि ‘‘बड़ी चीज छोटी को खींचती है।” पर शब्द की आकर्षण शक्ति में इतना असर है कि वह मनुष्य की कौन कहे वन के मृगों को भी मुग्ध कर देती है।
Q130. लेखक के अनुसार न्यूटन की शक्ति से अधिक महत्त्वपूर्ण क्या है?
