Section C:Test of Language English
Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given below it.
Energy is neither created nor destroyed; it is only recycled and recast in different forms. Even the human body is a form of energy. Call it prana or jivatma or simply vayu energy sustains the gross body and expresses itself through sensory perceptions and the basic physical elements.
The three fundamental gunas— satvik, rajasik and tamasik—which characterise the nature of the human being, very often in a combination, are further sub-divided into many basic qualities commonly known as human values. Love, affection, integrity and truth, for instance, are values that are as important to life as breathing or eating. These values are positive but in the course of practice and because they emanate from a mind that is susceptible to negative thoughts, they get corrupted. They generate negativity and manifest in the form of lying, cheating or causing others harm. The very fact that human civilization has survived over centuries shows that despite all the negativity, the force of positive energy within all of us continues to expand and enrich.
According to the theory of karma, every action generates a corresponding reaction, good or bad as the case may be. The process might take place in this life or the next, but take place, it will. The theory prompted sages to exhort humanity to be good and do good. This way, the result of a good deed will invariably be good which will add to the collective good of the human species. This is what Sri Aurobindo called the Goodness Quotient. Swami Vivekananda firmly believed that human nature is basically good. It is only to be perceived as such and having been aware, to follow it through, for the good of one self so that it multiplies for social good. Goodness will help improve the quality of life of not just the individual but an entire society. There is no such thing as ‘negative’ energy, all energy being positive and constantly recycled. Negativity is therefore a dysfunction of thought or outlook. This has to be resisted from within by rein forcing the positive qualities inherent in human nature.
The instant gratification of the senses might be the driving force in a society driven by consumerism but realising that all the material success and prosperity you have acquired over a lifetime means nothing once your body lies inert, life takes on a new meaning.
