Part IV: Language I English

Directions: Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow (Q. 91–99) by selecting the most appropriate option.
Madam Cama’s Paris home became a shelter for world revolutionaries. Even lenin, the father of Russian revolution, visited her house and exchange views. Savarkar got all encouragement in writing the history of the First Indian War of Independence from Cama. She helped its printing in Holland as no English publisher came forward to publish it. It was a banned book but found its way to India smuggled ingeniously under “Don Quixote” covers; She became the publisher of “Vande Mataram”, a revolutionary magazine and its distributor, an extremely difficult task in the days of British espionage. Another magazine “’Madan’s Talwar” was also started in memory of Madan Lal Dhingra who laid down his life for the country. Both the magazines were outlawed in India and England. Madam Cama somehow found ways to send them to Indian revolutionaries.
Madam Cama also fought for the cause of women. Speaking at National Conference at Cairo, Egypt in 1910, she asked, “Where is the other half of the Egypt? I see only me who represent half the country;” She stressed the role of women in building a nation.
When the First World War broke out in 1914, Madam Cama took an anti-British stand and tried her best to make the Indian people aware of the exploitative nature of British imperialism.
The British had banned her entry into India, being afraid of her revolutionary past and staunch nationalistic outlook. But the lioness was getting old and 35 years of fighting on foreign land had taken its toll. She decided to return to her motherland. Her health was worsening.
