She was his third visitor. That’s because she was his class teacher’s daughter, and her mother made her visit him.
The other two, Rahul and Syed, weren’t really his friends, although they often ganged up with him against other kids to take away their lunch pocket money. Partha knew he wouldn’t have long to live. He could feel it, deep inside. Seeing his aunty crying after talking with the doctor confirmed it. His time had come. He didn’t tell his visitors, though.

Once Shanta left, he ripped a page off from his notebook and wrote— “Dear God, I know I messed up and nobody likes me. Please give me a second chance. I can show you what a good friend I can be.” He drew a map showing the way from the school to the hospital, walked shakily to the window, and let the balloon fly away, carrying his message towards God.
The balloon was heading straight to a telephone pole, but a gentle breeze blew it away just in time. It crossed the park and disappeared out of view.

him. “I find the balloon,” he said. “You are lonely?” He just nodded, too startled to talk.
“I lonely too.

भाग V: भाषा II हिन्दी

निर्देश: गद्यांश को पढ़कर निम्नलिखित प्रश्नों (प्र. सं. 121&129) में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। रवींद्रनाथ ने इस भारतवर्ष को ‘महामानव समुद्र‘ कहा है। विचित्र देश है यह; असुर आए, आर्य आए, शक आए, हूण आए, नाग आए, यक्ष आए, गंधर्व आए – न जाने कितनी मानव जातियाँ यहाँ आई और आज के भारतवर्ष के बनाने में अपना हाथ लगा गईं। जिसे हमें हिंदू रीति-नीति कहते हैं, वह अनेक आर्य और आर्येतर उपादानों का अद्भुत मिश्रण है। एक-एक पशु, एक-एक पक्षी न जाने कितनी स्मृतियों का भार लेकर हमारे सामने उपस्थित है। अशोक की भी अपनी स्मृति परंपरा है। आम की भी है, बकुल की है, चंपे की भी है। सब क्या हमें मालूम है? जितना मालूम है, उसी का अर्थ क्या स्पष्ट हो सका है? न जाने किस बुरे मुहूर्त में मनोजन्मा देवता ने शिव पर बाण फेंका था? शरीर जलकर राख हो गया और ‘वामन-पुराण‘ (षष्ठ अध्याय) की गवाही पर हमें मालूम है कि उनका रत्नमय धनुष टूटकर खंड-खंड हो धरती पर गिर गया। जहाँ मूठ थी, वह स्थान रुक्म-मणि से बना था, वह टूटकर धरती पर गिरा और चंपे का फूल बन गया; हीरे का बना हुआ जो नाह-स्थान था, वह टूटकर गिरा और मौलसिरी के मनोहर पुष्पों में बदल गया; अच्छा ही हुआ। इंद्रनील मणियों का बना हुआ कोटि देश भी टूट गया और सुंदर पाटल पुष्पों में परिवर्तित हो गया। यह भी बुरा नहीं हुआ। लेकिन सबसे सुंदर बात यह हुई कि चंद्रकांत-मणियों का बना हुआ मध्य देश टूटकर चमेली बन गया और विद्रुम की बनी निम्नतर कोटि बेला बन गई, स्वर्ग को जीतनेवाला कठोर धनुष, जो धरती पर गिरा तो कोमल फूलों में बदल गया। स्वर्गीय वस्तुएँ धरती से मिले बिना, मनोहर नहीं होतीं।

निर्देश: गद्यांश को पढ़कर निम्नलिखित प्रश्नों (प्र. सं. 130&135) में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए। कुटज अर्थात् जो कुट से पैदा हुआ है। ‘कुट’ घड़े को भी कहते हैं, घर को भी कहते हैं। कुट अर्थात् घड़े से उत्पन्न होने के कारण प्रतापी अगस्त्य मुनि भी ‘कुटज’ कहे जाते हैं। घड़े से तो क्या उत्पन्न हुए होंगे। कोई और बात होगी। संस्कृत में ‘कुटहारिका’ और ‘कुटकारिका’ दासी को कहते हैं। क्यों कहते हैं; ‘कुटिया’ या ‘कुटीर’ शब्द भी कदाचित इसी शब्द से सम्बद्ध है। क्या इस शब्द का अर्थ घर ही है? घर में काम-काज करने वाली दासी कुटकारिका और कुटहारिका कही जा सकती है। एक जरा गलत ढंग की दासी ‘कुटनी’ भी कही जाती है।
संस्कृत में उसकी गलतियों को थोड़ा अधिक मुखर बनाने के लिए उसे ‘कुट्टनी’ कह दिया गया है। अगस्त्य मुनि भी नारदजी की तरह दासी के पुत्र थे क्या? घड़े में पैदा होने का तो कोई तुक नहीं है, न मुनि कुटज के सिलसिले में, न फूल कुटज के। फूल गमले में होते अवश्य हैं, पर कुटज तो जंगल का सैलानी है। उसे घड़े या गमले से क्या लेना-देना है? शब्द विचारोत्तेजक अवश्य है। कहाँ से आया? मुझे तो इसी में सन्देह हैं कि वह आर्यभाषाओं का शब्द है भी या नहीं। एक भाषा-भाषी किसी संस्कृत शब्दों को एक से अधिक रूप में प्रचलित पाते थे, जो तुरन्त उसकी कुलीनता पर शक कर बैठते थे। संस्कृत में ‘कुटज’ रूप भी मिलता है और ‘कुटच’ भी। मिलने को तो कुटज भी मिल जाता है।
