Part III: Language I English

Directions: Read the given passage and answer the questions that follow (Q. 91–99) by selecting the most appropriate option.
The first detailed description of plastic surgical procedures is found in the clinical text on Indian surgery, the Sushruta Samhita, which incorporates the details of surgical tools and operative techniques. Sushruta wrote based on the lectures of his teacher, the famous surgeon king, Bevadas. He taught his pupils to try their knives first on natural as well as artificial objects resembling diseased parts of the body before undertaking actual operations. It is interesting to note that modern surgery stresses so much upon simulation, models and cadaver training before actual performance to increase and improve patient safety. He stressed on both theoretical and practical training and had famously remarked once: “The physician who has only the book of knowledge (Sastras) but is unacquainted with the practical methods of treatment or who knows the practical details of the treatment but from self-confidence does not study the books is unfit to practise his calling.” Sushruta considered surgery to be the most important branch of all the healing arts, and he had performed and described in detail several complicated operations. These include operations for intestinal obstruction, hernia repairs, bladder stone, but more importantly, several plastic surgical operations, including those for the cleft lip and nose reshaping, which are performed virtually unchanged even today from his descriptions about 3000 years ago;

भाग IV: भाषा II हिन्दी

निर्देश: गद्यांश को पढ़कर निम्नलिखित प्रश्नों (प्र. सं. 121 से 128) में सबसे उचित विकल्प चुनिए।
मनुष्य अपने विकास के लिए प्राकृतिक संसाधनों का दोहन करके अपनी विविध आवश्यकताओं की पूर्ति करता है। प्राकृतिक संसाधनों का संरक्षण, संवर्धन एवं मितव्ययितापूर्वक उपयोग मानव की कुशलता, लगन एवं समर्पण पर निर्भर है। प्रकृति के अमूल्य उपहारों, जैसे- वन, जल, खनिज आदि को अपने कल्याण के लिए संपूर्ण प्रयोग करना मानव-मात्र की इच्छा शक्ति व तर्क पर निर्भर है। मानव की प्रगति के सतत विकास का महत्त्व गांधीजी ने बहुत पहले ही पहचान लिया था। इसलिए सतत विकास हेतु मानव की आत्मनिर्भरता को ध्यान में रखकर संसाधनों के संरक्षण पर ज़ोर दिया। विकास का ध्येय जीवन के आर्थिक ही नहीं वरन् सामाजिक, आर्थिक, नैतिक और आध्यात्मिक स्तर को ऊँचा उठाना होना चाहिए। प्रकृति से संस्कृति की ओर बढ़ने की आकांक्षा हमेशा होनी चाहिए। जहाँ इस आकांक्षा की पूर्ति होगी उसे इतिहास में स्वर्ण युग का नाम देना उचित होगा न कि साहित्य और कला की तरक्की का। इस दृष्टि से अभी तक भारत का स्वर्ण युग दूर-दूर तक दिखाई नहीं देता।

हैरानी की बात यह है कि मेरी दलील मित्रों के हलक़ से नहीं उतरती थी, तब मैं उनसे कहता था- ‘साहित्य की हर विधा को हर तरह की लेखनी को मैं बतौर चुनौती स्वीकार करता हूँ। आम आदमी से लेकर ख़ास आदमी तक के हृदय को छूना कोई मामूली बात नहीं होती। यह तो आप भी स्वीकार करेंगे, क्योंकि यह काम सिर्फ रामायण और महाभारत जैसे ग्रंथ ही कर पाते हैं।’ मेरी यह दलील रामबाण सिद्ध होती थी, वे सारे मित्र सोच में पड़ जाते थे, क्योंकि वे केवल किसी भी एक वर्ग के लिख पाते थे- ‘मास’ के लिए ‘क्लास’ के लिए।
उनके दायरे सीमित थे। लेकिन मैं दायरों के बाहर का शख्स हूँ। शायद इसी कारण मैं आपसे खुलकर अंतरंग बातें भी कर सकता हूँ। बात कहानी की रचना-प्रक्रिया से आरंभ की थी। तब मैं ‘ओ.हेनरी‘ की एक कहानी पढ़ता था और भीतर दो नई कहानियों के बीज अपने आप पड़ जाते थे। न कोई मशक्कत, ना कोई गहरी सोच। यह प्रोसेस मेरे लिए उतना ही आसान था जितना कि कैरम का खेल। फिर भी ये रचनाएँ कहानी के शिल्प में कहानी विधा के अंतर्गत लिखी गई पुख्ता किस्सागोई है। पर यह किस्सागोई जिंदगी से अलग नहीं हो सकती।
