Read the following passage and answer the Question Nos. 9 to 13.
“Out Indian history, such as it was, learned from The History of the British Empire by Williamson. It began in 1610 when Sir Thomas Roe, the first Ambassador to India of an English Monarch, Names I, presented his credentials to the Emperor Jahangir at Ajmer. We dwelt in great detail on The Victories of Clive at Plassey and elsewhere ….All we know to Calcutta was the ‘Black Hole’…..Until I went to St. Xavier’s College, Calcutta.
There I met and encountered Indian who were equal if not superior to me in wit, wisdom, culture, even English literature. I was a founder member with Utpal Dutt of his first troupe of actors – The Amateur Shakespearians. I wrote articles for St. Xavier’s College Magazine when P. Lal was editor. I mingled with Minu Doha, Tarun Roy, Peter Banerjee, Romen, the ebullient son of Sir ‘Byron’ Mukherjee and others. With some there developed friendships that lasted. But the impact of all on me was definite and irremovable.
But I must record in detail the impact of one. My relationship with him was very temporary. He was not an intellectual, certainly not one of the literati. He was not even in our Christian Hostel. But as Indian Independence approached there was a fear of recurrence of the terrible riots that shook Calcutta exactly a year previously. The Hindu hostilities were evacuated from their Lower Circular Road Hostel to our Christian Hostel, safe in the grounds of the college in Park Street.
There came the question of a Hostel Entertainment to celebrate Independence. Some of us felt in our hearts that it was an occasion to be mourned rather than celebrated. But prudence induced silence. At any rate we would boycott the show. Then Tamuli approached me. He was the acknowledged leader of the Hindu Hostilities. A tall, casually good-looking Assamese, he had un-derivable charm of manner.
He asked me if I would organise the English section of Independence celebrations. It was not the fact of his request that turned me but the manner of it and his dealings with me in the subsequent days of preparation. Here was an Indian whose approach was neither subservient not affected nor insolvent with the pride of new found nationalism. He was gentle, modest, sincere, yet with un-derivable dignity.” – R. H. Lesser.
