1.2 A Synopsis - The Swiss Family Robinson [Latest edition] Balbharati solutions for English Kumarbharati 9th Standard Maharashtra State Board

Do you know any stories about people who were lost in uninhabited places and were later rescued? Name them.


SOLUTION

Yes. In 1971, the Robertson family boarded their yacht Lucette at Falmouth harbour, Cornwall to sail around the world. Eighteen months into the trip, they were 200 miles from the Galapagos Islands when catastrophe struck. Their boat was hit by a pod of killer whales and destroyed within minutes.

The fa.qlily scrambled aboard a leaky raft and when that finally deflated seventeen days later, they made for their dinghy, the Ednamair. There was only enough water for ten days, and the only food onboard consisted of a bag of onions, a tin of biscuits, ten oranges, six lemons, and half a pound of glucose sweets. When that ran out, the family drank turtle blood to survive.

The matriarch of the family, Lyn Robinson, was a nurse and devised a gruesome technique to keep them hydrated with rainwater collected in the boat.

On July 23, 1972, the family was finally picked up after a Japanese crew spotted their distress flare.

SOLUTION

The Real Castaways (Title}

Change / Problem / Challenge

The famous explorer Ernest Shackleton and his crew of 28 men left England aboard the ship Endurance on August 8, 1914, to fulfill his dream of crossing the South Polar continent from sea to sea.

Scene 1

During the expedition, the ship got trapped in ice. Shackleton and his men found themselves marooned in Antarctica for five months.

Scene 2

They lived on top of floating ice, fed on seals, and kept warm by playing hockey and dog-sled racing.

In April 1916, Shackleton and 5 of his men set off in three small lifeboats they had recovered to find help on Elephant Island.

Scene 3

The six men spent sixteen days crossing 1,300 Km of the ocean. The six men landed on an uninhabited part of the island.

Climax

Their last hope was to cross 26 miles of treacherous mountains and glaciers until they finally reached a whaling station where they found help.

The problem resolved/Normalcy restored/ End

Shackleton returned to rescue the men on Elephant Island and amazingly, apart from some missing toes from frostbites, not one member of the 28 man crew was lost.

Write in your own words, how the Robinson family made each of their homes.


SOLUTION

First Home - Their first home was a tent which they built up by softening the floor with armloads of grass. They cut them and spread it to serve as their beds.

Second Home - Their second home was a treehouse which they built by using long and extended branches. These branches were used as platforms. They also created a ladder out of bamboos.

Third Home - Their third home was a cave house which they created by making an opening on the smooth face of the rock. They cut windows in the rock for ventilation and sunlight.

Fourth Home - Since one of the huts they had made was destroyed by an elephant herd, they decided to build a stronger house using four strong trees as a base, rather than building a house on stilts which the elephants could knock down easily. The four trees were of equal size, approximately twelve feet apart. This was a much safer home for them.

Expand the following ideas in a paragraph or two:- Where there is a will, there is away.


SOLUTION

A pupil may think that to secure a first-class at an examination is beyond his reach; an engineer may feel that the harnessing of the tidal sea-wave to run the machine is impracticable; a medical researcher may be of the opinion that a particular disease is incurable. But if each one of these makes a firm resolve to achieve his goal and applies himself to it wholeheartedly, it is almost certain that success will crown his resolute efforts. History often bears out the truth of this assertion. There was a time when flying in the air orbiting the earth, traveling in space, and sending speech over the air were all regarded as flights of fancy. But today we see that these seemingly impossible things have become possible. The airplane the spaceship, the radio, the television are now realities.

How have these impossibilities been achieved? The answer is clear and simple. By man's supreme willpower, determination, and dedication. The great doer is never a pessimist or a defeatist. He is a staunch optimist confident of ultimate success. Nothing can stop him, daunt him, and can deflect him from his avowed purpose. He knows fully well that where there is a will, there is away. He has the will to win, so he finds out ways and marches through to ultimate victory. A man of will explores the earth's impassable deserts and impenetrable forests, scales Mount Everest, sails to the North Pole and the South Pole; plumbs the depths of oceans, conquers space; and one by one conquers the forces of nature and dreadful diseases. Nothing is impossible for him; his inventive genius is the crown of creation.

Let us cultivate a strong will, a keen desire, and the determination to achieve our ideals, for where there is a will, there is away. If there's no way we will make one. Victory is bound to be ours.


1.2 A Synopsis - The Swiss Family Robinson [Latest edition] Balbharati solutions for English Kumarbharati 9th Standard Maharashtra State Board

Expand the following ideas in a paragraph or two:- Courage and resourcefulness are the keys to overcome problems.


SOLUTION

Life is full of unexpected problems, obstacles, and setbacks. To successfully overcome many of these difficulties, you must have cou..rage and resourcefulness. Sometimes things don't go as planned. Don't be afraid to take a step back, collect your thoughts, and change your plan of attack. Hence courage plays an essential role in solving our problems. Often breaking a big goal into multiple smaller ones can come in handy.

Resourcefulness is the ability to deal promptly and effectively with difficulties if you are courageous enough. In an emergency, keeping calm, quickly assessing the situation, and taking the right action makes you resourceful. It often involves devising a creative, ingenious, or unique solution. A resourceful person thinks his way through, over, or around the obstacles or difficulties that block his path. If one method doesn't work, he tries another.

A resourceful person is fully alert and aware of his environment and thinking about what is occurring around him. He will accomplish what needs to be done - by a strategy, skill, or a new approach. He is alert to other possibilities and realizes that usually, several solutions exist. The 'thrill of victory' will begin to regularly replace the 'agony of defeat' that consumes so many people who do not know that they must apply calm, careful reasoning to problems in order to defeat them. Overcoming challenges is how we grow.

Never forget: 'To tackle trials and tribulations, be courageous and practice resourcefulness!'

SOLUTION

In Andalusia, Spanish shepherd Santiago dreams of a long-buried treasure in Egypt. An old man claiming to be Melchizedek, King of Salem, tells Santiago that he must follow the omens guiding him to the treasure. He gives Santiago two stones to consult if he ever needs help interpreting the omens.

Against his father's wishes, Santiago sells his flock and uses the money to travel to Africa. Soon after arriving in Tangier, Santiago is swindled out of his money and left homeless. He offers to work at a crystal shop in exchange for food and shelter. After working for a while, Santiago decides to continue his quest.

On the way to the pyramids, he meets an Englishman in search of an alchemist living at the Al-Fayoum oasis. At the oasis, Santiago receives an omen of an impending attack. After Santiago defends the oasis, the alchemist agrees to take him to the treasure.

At last, Santiago reaches the pyramids. A group of men happens upon him and beats him savagely when they find no treasure. One of the men tells Santiago about a dream he had about a ruined church in Spain. Santiago realizes the treasure has been buried there all along. He returns home to find the treasure buried in the church where he used to sleep with his flock.
