商务礼仪论文 旅行的印度方式

Over the years, the Pope has been driven around in quite a few different vehicles, which most people refer to as the Popemobile. The last time the Pope visited the United States, for instance, his ride was a modified Mercedes-Benz M Class SUV which had been specially modified to accommodate his needs. In fact, Mercedes-Benz has a long history of creating vehicles specially for the Pope, and now Piaggio has joined in as well. Piaggios contribution, though, features just three wheels and is made from the rickshaw platform which is popular in India, where the vehicle was created.

The autorickshaw is now all set for a papal touch. Two made-in-Maharashtra three-wheelers desi versions of the ‘Popemobile’, the specially-designed automobile used by the Pope at public appearances, is to whirr across the Vatican. The three-wheelers have been presented to the Pope by Italian automaker Piaggio which manufactures them at its Baramati plant. The Piaggio Ape Calessino vehicles, that carry special insignia of the Vatican city and are white in colour in line with papal requirements, were presented to Pope Benedict XVI at the Vatican last week, marking one of the most visible Indian connections to the spiritual leader.

“These vehicles were given a complete look and feel of a Popemobile by putting a white coloured hood, white tyres, seat upholstery, and white body paint. The insignia on the doors is specially handcrafted. The entire vehicle was given a complete unique decor to suit the aura of His Holiness,” Ravi Chopra, CMD of Piaggio’s Indian subsidiary, told TOI.

Chopra said the Pope gave the delegation an audience where they apprised him of the vehicles and where they were manufactured. “He enquired about India and expressed a desire to visit the country,” Chopra said. But would the Holy father actually get to use the vehicles and why would he prefer a three-wheeler over his fleet of cars? Chopra is confident he will. “Just as a golf cart, they can be used by the Pope, may be for moving in the garden or some other purpose,” he said.

Read the passage given below and complete the sentences that follow : (5 Marks)

Many animals are able to communicate with each other very well-but none of them can talk as we do. That is, no animals use words.

Birds cry out and make sounds that other birds understand. Smells, movements, and sounds are used for communication by animals, through which they express joy or anger or fear.

Human speech is a very complicated process, which no animal can perform. One reason is that in a very special way we use a whole series of organs to produce the sounds we want to make when we utter words. The way our vocal cords are made to vibrate, the way the throat, mouth and nasal cavities are adjusted, the way the lips, teeth, lower jaw, tongue, and palate are moved – just to make vowel and consonant sounds, is something animals can’t do. They cannot produce a whole series of words to make a sentence. And there is another, perhaps more important reason why animals can’t talk. Words are only labels for objects, actions, feelings expressions and ideas. For example, the word ‘bird’ is a label for a living, flying object. Other words describe its colour, shape, flying and singing. Still other words would be used to tell what the speaker thinks or feels about the bird or its actions.

For human beings, therefore, the use of words means the use of labels or symbols, and then organizing them in a certain way to communicate something. This requires a degree of intelligence and logical thinking that no animals have. So, they can’t talk the way people do.

1. While human beings use words to communicate, birds and animals are different since they

use ______________________________________________ for communication.

2. Though birds and animals cannot communicate like human beings, they are capable

of____________________________________________.

3. The complicated process of human speech requires a very special way of using _________ _________________________.

4. Using words for communication requires intelligence and____________________.

5. Pick out a word form the third paragraph that means ‘to move from side to side very

quickly and with small movements’

Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by choosing the answers from given options. (5 Marks)

The death of Dr Christiaan Barnard, the famous transplant surgeon, has occurred at a time when many of his modern counterparts are facing difficulties. Many of the early problems, such as tissue rejection, have, to a great extent, now been solved, thanks to the introduction of new drugs. However, there remains a major problem. The people in need of transplant surgery far outnumber the available organs.

The shortage of organ donors has caused several doctors to call for urgent improvements to be made to the system by which organs are donated. Many countries, such as Britain, have huge waiting lists of people whose lives could be saved by being given a kidney, lung, heart, or liver transplant. Sadly, many of them die before they reach the top of those lists.

Under the present British scheme, people are asked to carry donor cards, and/or put their names on the national donor register. Thus, if they lose their lives suddenly, for example, in a traffic accident, they have given permission in advance of their deaths for their organs to be used. If they have not done so, surgeons are faced with the task of asking the distraught next-of-kin for permission to use the organs of the deceased. Of course, often the relatives are too upset even to think of such a thing until it is too late. Organ transplants have to take place quite soon after the death of the donor.

Dying and donating organs is not something most of us like to think about, and only about 14% of people have registered. Now, it has been suggested that, instead of the present register, there should be a register of people who wish to opt out of having their organs removed for transplant surgery.

Increasing the number of donors is made more difficult because it is such an emotive issue. Just recently, an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association showed that half of the families in the United States refused, when asked for permission to use the organs of their loved ones.Â

The ancient mariner is terribly weighed down under guilt and the sin that he has committed by killing the benevolent albatross. He is restless and desperate to be relieved of this burden by telling his story to the wedding guest. It would amount to confessing his sin. (The Rime of the Ancient Mariner)

Use of Supernatural in The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. (any eight of the following value points) 6 Marks

The very description of the ancient mariner and the look in his eyes, his skinny hands lend the supernatural element to the poem right at the beginning.

There is more to his “glittering eye” than mere madness, as he is able to compel the Wedding Guest to listen to his story with the fascination of a three-year-old child. Although he is clearly human, the Ancient Mariner seems to have a touch of the otherworldly in him.

 The emergence of the Albatross  from the mist, and the sailors revering it as a sign of good luck, as though it were a “Christian soul” sent by God to save them.

The mariner is hounded by disaster and supernatural forces after killing the albatross

Coleridge clearly tries to make the supernatural elements of the poem appear as integral parts of the natural world.

His underlying theme is that all things that inhabit the natural world have an inherent value and beauty, and that it is necessary for humanity to recognize and respect these qualities.

The initial descriptions of the ship and its crew are fairly realistic, but as the ancient mariner undergoes his quest for understanding and redemption, the supernatural world increasingly engulfs him.

His world becomes nightmarish when contrasted with the realistic world that he has left behind.

For much of the poem, the mariner is adrift in the middle of the ocean, symbolically cut off from all human companionship. The mariner kills the albatross whose spirit takes its revenge on all the mariners. They face utter drought in spite of water being everywhere. The ship is becalmed- As idle as a painted ship / Upon a painted ocean.

Sailors’ senses assaulted with huge icy forms, terrifying sounds, and bewildering echoes.

Supernatural beings appear in the poem as symbolic or allegorical figures, representing the forces of nature, life, death, and retribution.

The mariner confronts these figures and must ultimately appease them in order to obtain his salvation.

OR

Mark Antony’s Speech

All the eight of the following Value Points.

Mark Antony’s funeral oration–manages to turn the mob against the conspirators. He uses many rhetorical tricks to persuade the people to go against the conspirators

He dramatically enters with Caesar’s body to win the sympathies of the crowd and starts out by addressing the crowd as “Friends”

By calling Brutus noble and honourable repeatedly, he conveys a sense of sarcasm

Rebuts Brutus’ statement that Caesar was ambitious and starts turning the crowd against the conspirators. This has an effect of causing the crowd to believe Brutus is lying and maybe everything he has said may be questionable.

Antony then teases the crowd with Caesar’s will, which they beg him to read, but he refuses. Antony tells the crowd to “have patience” and expresses his feeling that he will “wrong the honourable men whose daggers have stabbed Caesar” if he is to read the will. The crowd yells out “they were traitors” and have at this time completely turned against the conspirators and are inflamed about Caesar’s death.

Next, Antony humbles himself as “no orator, as Brutus is” hinting that Brutus used trickery in his speech to deceive the crowd.

After that Antony deals his final blow by revealing to the crowd Caesar’s will, in which “To every Roman citizen he gives, to every several man seventy-five drachmas” as well as land. He thus appeals to their sense of greed. He then asks the crowd, “Here was a Caesar, when comes such another?” which questions the conspirators’ ability to lead.

The people seem to find it easier to accept Antony, an emotional and sincere speaker, than Brutus who appears arrogant and forceful.
