Ans. Last Tuesday, our school was closed. So my best friend Leena came to my house on that day. We decided to visit a nearby zoo with my mom. We got ready and reached zoo by around 9 a.m. We were very excited to see the animals as we both were very fond of animals.

My mom bought 3 tickets and then we entered the gate. There were several monkeys, various beautiful birds, different wild animals in the zoo. Lions were roaring very loudly. Deer were wandering freely. It was very beautiful to see all those.

It was a very thrilling experience and a memorable one.

Ans. One afternoon a fox was walking through the forest and spotted a bunch of grapes hanging from over a lofty branch.

“Just the thing to quench my thirst,” he thought. Taking a few steps back, the fox jumped and just missed the hanging grapes. Again the fox took a few paces back and tried to reach them but still failed.

Finally, giving up, the fox turned up his nose and said, “They’re probably sour anyway,” and proceeded to walk away.

(b) ‘Paper  has  more  patience  than  people’.  I  thought  of  this  saying  on  one  of those  days  when  I  was  feeling  a  little  depressed  and  was  sitting  at  home with  my  chin  in  my  hands,  bored  and  listless,  wondering  whether  to  stay in  or  go  out.  I  finally  stayed  where  I  was,  brooding  :  Yes,  paper  does  have more  patience,  and  since  I’m  not  planning  to  let  anyone  else  read  this stiff-backed  notebook  grandly  referred  to  as  a  ‘diary’,  unless  I  should  ever find  a  real  friend,  it  probably  won’t  make  a  bit  of  difference. 

Now  I’m  back  to  the  point  that  prompted  me  to  keep  a  diary  in  the  first place  :  I  don’t  have  a  friend.   Let  me  put  it  more  clearly,  since  no  one  will  believe  that  a  thirteen-yearold  girl  is  completely  alone  in  the  world.  And  I’m  not.  I  have  loving  parents and  a  sixteen  -year-old  sister,  and  there  are  about  thirty  people  I  can  call friends.  

I  have  a  family,  loving  aunts  and  a  good  home.  No,  on  the  surface I  seem  to  have  everything,  except  my  one  true  friend.

(c) Not  enough  can  be  said  to  show  how  important  a  baker  can  be  for  a village.  The  lady  of  the  house  must  prepare  sandwiches  on  the  occasion  of her  daughter’s  engagement.  Cakes  and  bolinhas  are  a  must  for  Christmas as  well  as  other  festivals.  Thus,  the  presence  of  the  baker’s  furnace  in  the village  is  absolutely  essential. 

The  baker  or  bread-seller  of  those  days  had  a  peculiar  dress  known  as  the kabai.  It  was  a  single-piece  long  frock  reaching  down  to  the  knees.  In  our childhood  we  saw  bakers  wearing  a  shirt  and  trousers  which  were  shorter than  full-length  ones  and  longer  than  half  pants.  Even  today,  anyone  who wears  a  half  pant  which  reaches  just  below  the  knees  invites  the comment  that  he  is  dressed  like  a  pader  !
