Q. 1. Read the following passage carefully and answer the question given below it :

Neeraj Chopra did not just win a gold medal, flinging the javelin a staggering 87.58m to top the charts in Tokyo.  out vaulted himself into history books. It would go down, to date, as the most historic of medals in India’s Neeraj Olympic history. Perhaps, the most historic in the nation’s sporting history. The gold, a historic first for the Buntry in track and field, the second for an individual ever and the first since Abhinay Bindra’s in 2008, would also ensure India’s richest-ever tally (seven). Much before he won the country’s first-ever track and field medal, they used to call Neeraj, the village Sarpanch (headman) in Khandra, near Panipat. What started as a joke turned out prophetic.

Growing up at Khandra village, near Panipat, Neeraj was an overweight and restless kid most of the time. Since they wanted to keep him occupied, his father, a farmer, took him to the Shivaji stadium. Neeraj had tried other sports too. He was not too fond of running, but when he saw a few heavy men throwing the javelin, he wanted to try it too. When he realised that he was good at it, he started loving it more. Many, including Calvert and Volker Herrmann, who was the AFI’s High Performance Director before quitting in November last year, felt that Neeraj would start winning medals from the 2024 Paris Olympics. He has proved them right by clinching a medal and proved them wrong by doing it four years early. He has been a consistent performer since bursting into spotlight with a historic gold in the junior world championships in 2016 with an Under-20 world record of 86.48m which still stands.

His other achievements include gold medals in the 2018 Commonwealth Games and the Asian Games, besides the top finish in the 2017 Asian Championships. He is also a 2018 Arjuna Awardee. There is still a wall hanging in the drawing room of Chopra’s ancestral home which features an oft-repeated motivational quote – “A single idea can light up your life.” The Chopra family’s single idea to let him pursue javelin throw on Saturday lit up the country in its golden glow.

hobbies to talk Therein lies the secret of your

thing is that you must talk about other fellow’s hobby rather than your own. popularity. Talk to your friends about the things that interest them, and you will get a reputation for good fellowship, charming wit, and a brilliant mind. There is nothing that pleases people so much as your interest in their interest.

It is just as important to know what subjects to avoid and what subjects to select for good conversation. If you don’t want to be set down as a wet blanket or a bore, be careful to avoid certain unpleasant subjects. Avoid talking about yourself, unless you are asked to do so. People are interested in their own problems not in yours. Sickness or death bores everybody. The only one who willingly listens to such talk is the doctor, but he gets paid

To be a good conversationalist you must know not only what to say, but how also to say it. Be mentally quick and witty. But don’t hurt others with your wit. Finally try to avoid mannerism your conversation. Don’t bite your lips or click your tongue, or roll your eyes or use your hands excessively as you speak.
