(b) How does the speaker highlight the importance of giving back to the society in the lesson “The Convocation Address” ?

The graduates must realize the contribution made by common men towards their higher ed¬ucation. They can aptly repay it only in terms of their service to humanity. It is not an easy task. They have to overcome many hindrances to perform their service successfully. They may have to face the unpleasant sight of practices, tyranny of all sorts which will discourage them.

But they must realize that a continuous stream of men and women endowed with the spirit of service has been carrying on the crusade successfully and have conferred rich benefits on humanity. The Tamilians have been holding this ideal for more than two thousand years as expressed in Purananuru. It celebrates the selfless spirit and courage of people who served society by sharing everything with their fellow men. So as inheritors of that rich legacy the graduates must overcome their hindrances and serve society to the best of their abilities.

You were one of the fresh graduates at the convocation function of the University. You had the rare privilege of listening to the enlightening speech of Dr. Arignar Anna. Write a letter to your friend describing the core ideas of his speech and the impact of the speech on you.

5/20, II street,


I am very delighted to share my experience at the convocation function of my university. I had the great privilege to listen to the speech of Dr. Anna Durai which imparts a great impact on me. I would like to share my experience with you. He started his speech by saying universities which are the repositories of knowledge play a vital role in the life of an individual.

I come to know that universities in olden age train scholars, who in turn render their service only to the royal society and not to the common men. But now the function of university has been enlarged which moulds an individual in all ways and equips him for the task of making democracy fruitful It is the duty of the graduate to repay the society in terms of service in the path of which he has to overcome many obstacles.

We are expected to follow the ideals expressed in Purananuru and serve society to the best of our abilities. His speech was really very impressive and enlightening It kindles the spirit in me to serve society. His enlightened speech indulges an optimistic outlook in my view. I even took an oath of serving this society to my fullest.

Write a summary (or) make notes of the following passage.

A planet revolves around the Sun along a definite curved path which is called an orbit. It is elliptical. The time taken by a planet to complete one revolution is called its period of revolution.
Besides revolving around the Sun, a planet also rotates on its own axis like a top. The time taken by a planet to complete one rotation is called its period of rotation. The period of rotation of the earth is 23 hours and 56 minutes and so the length of a day on earth is taken as 24 hours.
The planets are spaced unevenly. The first four planets are relatively close together and close to the Sun. They form the inner solar system. Farther from the Sun is the outer solar system, Where the planets are much more spread out. Thus the distance between Saturn and Uranus is much greater than the distance between Earth and Mars.
The four planets grouped together in the inner solar system are Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars. They are called inner planets. They have a surface of solid rock crust and are called terrestrial or rocky planets. Their insides, surfaces and atmospheres are formed in a similar way and form a similar pattern. Our planet Earth, can be taken as a model of the other three planets.
The four large planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune spread out in the outer solar system and slowly orbit the Sun. They are called outer planets. They are made of hydrogen, helium and other gases in huge amounts and have very dense atmosphere. They are known as gas giants and are also called gaseous planets. The four outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune have rings, whereas the four inner planets do not have any rings. The rings are actually tiny pieces of rock covered with ice.
