UTET Exam Nov 2021 Paper – 1 (Primary Level)

Exam Date : 26.11.2021

Part – III – Language II : English

Direction (Q. No. 61 to 65) : Read the passage given below and answer the questions that follow by selecting the most appropriate answer.

The last great war, which nearly shook the foundations of the modern world, had little impact on Indian Literature beyond aggravating the popular revulsion against violence and adding to the growing disillusionment with the ‘humane pretensions of the Western World. This was eloquently voiced in Tagore’s later poems and his last testament, Crisis in Civilisation. The Indian Intelligentsia was in a state of moral dilemma. On the one hand, it could not help sympathising with England’s dogged courage in the hour of peril, with the Russians fighting with their backs to the wall against the ruthless Nazi hordes, and with China groaning under the heel of Japanese militarism; on the other hand, their own country was practically under military occupation of their own soil, and an Indian army under Subhas Bose was trying from the opposite camp to liberate their country. No creative impulse could issue from such confusion of loyalties. One would imagine that the achievement of Indian Independence in 1947, which came in the wake of the Allies’ victory and was followed by the collapse of colonialism in the neighbouring Countries of South-East Asia, would have released an upsurge of creative energy. No doubt it did, but unfortunately it was soon submerged in the great agony of Partition, with its inhuman slaughter of the innocents and the uprooting of millions of people from their homeland followed by the martyrdom of Mahatma Gandhi.
