SECTION – A (READING)

1. Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow:
The stark observation made in the Economic Survey of 15-16 that “Indian agriculture, is in a way, a victim of its own past success – especially the green revolution”, shows the dark reality of the agriculture sector at present and the havoc that has been wreaked by the green revolution. The green revolution, which is often characterized by the introduction of high-yielding variety of seeds and fertilizers, undoubtedly increased the productivity of land considerably.

But the growth in productivity has been stagnant in recent years, resulting in a significant decline in the income of farmers. There have also been negative environmental effects in the form of depleting water table, emission of greenhouse gases, and the contamination of surface and groundwater. Needless to say, the agriculture sector is in a state of distress, which is severely affecting peasants and marginal farmers, and urgent policy interventions are required to protect their interests. The government has responded to the problem by constituting a panel, which will recommend ways to double the income of farmers by 2022.

While this may be an overly ambitious target, if we want to boost stagnated agricultural growth a shift has to be made, from food security of the nation to income security of the farmers. However, there are many hurdles that have to be crossed if we want to achieve this objective. The first major barrier to overcome is declining productivity. Data from 2013 reveals that India‟s average yield of cereal per hectare is far less than that of many countries (including several low-income countries), but the difference is huge when compared to China. For instance, our average yield per hectare is 39% below than that of China and for rice, this figure is 46%. Even Bangladesh, Vietnam and Indonesia fare better than India in case of rice yield.

Further, there is a huge inter-regional variation; the wheat and rice yield from Haryana and Punjab is much higher than from the other states. In order to cross the declining productivity barrier, there is a need to herald a rainbow revolution by making a shift from the wheat-rice cycle to other cereals and pulses. Since wheat and rice coupled with other crops are backed by minimum support prices (MSP) and input subsidy (whether water, fertilizer or power) regime, there is a huge incentive for the farmers in the irrigated region of Northwest India to grow these crops.

2. Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions that follow:

Winning is a habit of real-life achievers, and so is positive thinking. You cannot be a winner in the true sense, be both successful and happy, lead a purposeful life, realize your goal and contribute to your society unless you are a positive thinker. And you cannot be a positive thinker unless you are a positive person who believes in basic goodness, are sensitive to your own needs and desires as well as the needs of other people around you. Positive thinking leads you to a healthy attitude to life that makes you independent, courageous and cooperative. These qualities are essential for a purposeful, meaningful and rewarding existence.

Positive thinking is very often thought to be the ability to focus on what is right and ignoring what is wrong or unpleasant, to be able to turn a blind eye to what is disagreeable and disturbing. But this is not Positive Thinking is all about. It does not tell us to close our eyes to reality and stay where we are, resign to fate and not strive for more or better, not to make an effort at the risk of failure. It does not tell us to run away from anything, however unpleasant or difficult it may be.

The edifice of positive thinking rests on the power of your inner self, your motivation and preparedness to change, your determination and hard work, your ability to learn and improve. It will depend on your ability to step out of your inertia and move ahead, your ability to handle failure and setbacks, your ability to learn from your mistakes and move ahead.

Positive thinking can make reaching your goal easier and more enjoyable. It gives you the strength to face adversities and failure with courage and bounce back a stronger and more confident person. It is your best gift and the most powerful tool. It helps you to live your life to the fullest. However simple Positive thinking may sound and however easy it may appear to be, statistics show that only about five percent of people are able to think positive and become super achievers. These are the people who work harder and better than others and earn and control fifty percent of the world‟s resources.

So, to learn to look at everything in a positive way you have to break free from your negative conditioning and move ahead. You can change the way you perceive, interpret and think. You know that you can change when you want to change and you will want to change only when you acknowledge that there is a mistake and you need to set it right. Change can be brought about, not without your active participation and your will. (455 words)
