CBSE Class-12 Syllabus 2017-18

 

Subject: Theatre Studies

Rationale
 
All children play. Throughout the world, in all cultures, children play. Throughout recorded history, children have played. In playing, children learn instinctively; they do not need a teacher. Children’s natural capacities and capabilities in playing are what the drama/theatre teachers in schools exploit and extend in their programmes of study. Just as prehistoric communal rituals and celebrations are the roots of contemporary theatre, so early childhood play is the root that the teacher nurtures and helps to bring flower in the teenagers’ independent creative work in theatre studies: as actor, director, writer, designer, technician and critic. It is a journey that moves from illiteracy and oral traditions to the literacy and sophisticated communications of modernity; to the understanding that theatre studies open up a wide choice of worthy career options. In a sense, theatre’s syllabus can be put in one word- life. There is no aspect of life, no topic that theatre will not attempt to come to terms with and render creatively. In fact, it becomes the site for many other ‘subjects’ to be brought together, enabling students to see the links and connections between different areas of knowledge. Theatre is participatory and democratic in its methodologies, requiring teachers too to participate in its activities along with the children and to foster a more intimate relationship with them than
a regular classroom teacher usually has. There are no easy answers to many of the problems that are confronted in a drama class, and students are expected to hold and express a variety of opinions on any given topic, and to seek their own solutions to problems.

While she lived, her front gate was always locked and no one ever saw her leave or saw anybody go in. So even if you wanted to, you couldn’t feel sorry and say that you missed Miss Hilton. When I think of her house I see just two colours. Grey and green. The green of the mango tree, the grey of the house and the grey of the high iron fence that prevented you from getting at the mangoes. If your cricket ball fell in Miss Hilton’s courtyard you never got it back. It wasn’t the mango season when Miss Hilton died. But we got back about ten or twelve of our cricket balls.

The house was sold and we were prepared to dislike the new owners even before they came. I think we were a little worried. Already we had one resident of the street who kept on complaining about us to our parents. He complained that we played cricket on the pavement; and if we were not playing cricket he complained that we were making too much noise anyway. One afternoon when I came back from school Pal said, “Is a man and a woman. She pretty pretty, but he ugly like hell”. I didn’t see much. The front gate was open, but the windows were shut again. I heard a dog barking in an angry way. One thing was settled pretty quickly. Whoever these people were they would never be the sort of people to complain that we were making noise and disturbing their sleep.

During our growing up years we as children were taught–both at home and school–to worship the photos and idols of the gods of our respective religions. When we grow a little older, we were to read holy books like The Bhagwad Gita, Bible and Quran; we were told that there are a lot of life lessons to be learnt from these holy books. We were then introduced to stories from our mythologies which taught us about ethics and morality–what is good and what is bad. I also learnt to be respectful towards my parents who made my life comfortable with their hard work and love and care, and my teachers who guided me to become a good student and a responsible citizen.

I found that my brothers were always getting preferential treatment and all opportunities and options were open to them. This made me even more determined to not only do what
the boys were doing, but to do it better. The general thinking of mountain people was that mountaineering as a sport was not for them. They considered
themselves to be born mountaineers as they had to go up and down mountain slopes for their daily livelihood and even for routine
work. On the other hand, as a student, I would look curiously at foreign backpackers passing by my village and wonder where they were going. I would even invite them to my house and talk to them to learn more about their travels. The full significance of this came to me later when I started working. The foreigners took the trouble t come all the way to the Himalayas in order to educate themselves on social, cultural and scientific aspects of
mountaineering, as well as to seek peace in nature’s gigantic scheme of things.

One would imagine that at the very sight of the panther, deer, antelopes, and its other preys would just run for their lives.
Nothing of the sort. They all stand their ground and make such a loud noise that the panther is left with no other choice except to
leave quietly. I have seen a tiny chital babe standing in the middle of an opening in the forest, stamping its feet on the ground and
shooing away a tiger. With the white of its erect tail showing, it kept up its shrill call until the tiger made itself scarce. No tiger in
its senses would attempt to catch such an impertinent brat, just as you would not dream of catching an offending crow cawing away
in your verandah. While the panther sticks to cover and hugs the edge of the forest, the game animals, on the other hand, like to assemble right
out in open vast grazing grounds. Open spaces which the panther carefully avoids, are what the game animals deliberately seek.
It is difficult to describe the pandemonium kicked up by various animals when they spot or suspect a panther around. The chital strikes a shrill note, the kakar emits a deafening bark and the sambar rings a bell. The peacock on its perch, the jungle fowl on the ground, and the monkey on treetops, all join in the chorus of condemnation of the panther. They curse the panther in their own inimitable language. The resulting confusion of sounds is so
irritating to the sharp ears of the panther that it is left with no other option except to go away. The panther has thus to deal with its ever alert and watchful
associates who show no mercy and expect none. It is a fight between finesse and flight between clever attack and skillful
defence.  Contrary to the common belief, the panther never springs upon its prey. It stalks as close to its victim as it can manage, and then makes the final dash by rushing at it at a lightning speed

देश की आजादी के उनहत्तर वर्ष हो चुके हैं और आज जरूरत है अपने भीतर के तर्कप्रिय भारतीयों को जगाने की, पहले नागरिक और फिर उपभोक्ता बनने की। हमारा
लोकतंत्र इसलिए बचा है कि हम सवाल उठाते रहे हैं। लेकिन वह बेहतर इसलिए नहीं बन पाया क्योंकि एक नागरिक के रूप में हम अपनी μिजम्मेदारियों से भागते रहे हैं। किसी
भी लोकतांत्रिक प्रणाली की सफलता जनता की जागरूकता पर ही निर्भर करती है। एक बहुत ब‹डे संविधान विशेषज्ञ के अनुसार किसी मंत्री का सबसे प्राथमिक, सबसे
पहला जो गुण होना चाहिए वह यह कि वह ई ानदार हो और उसे भ्रष्ट नहीं बनाया जा सके। इतना ही जरूरी नहीं, बल्कि लोग देखें और समझें भी कि यह आदमी ई ानदार
है। उन्हें उसकी ई ानदारी में विश्वास भी होना चाहिए। इसलिए कुल मिलाकर हमारे लोकतंत्र की समस्या मूलत: नैतिक समस्या है। संविधान, शासन प्रणाली, दल, निर्वाचन
ये सब लोकतंत्र के अनिवार्य अंग हैं। पर जब तक लोगों में नैतिकता की भावना न रहेगी, लोगों का आचार-विचार ठीक न रहेगा तब तक अच्छे से अच्छे संविधान और
उत्तम राजनीतिक प्रणाली के बावμजूद लोकतंत्र ठीक से काम नहीं कर सकता। स्पष्ट है कि लोकतंत्र की भावना को जगाने व संवद्र्धित करने के लिए आधार प्रस्तुत करने की
μिजम्मेदारी राजनीतिक नहीं बल्कि सामाजिक है। आμजादी और लोकतंत्र के साथ जु‹डे सपनों को साकार करना है, तो सबसे पहले जनता को स्वयं जाग्रत होना होगा। जब तक स्वयं जनता का नेतृत्व पैदा नहीं होता, तब तक कोई भी लोकतंत्र सफलतापूर्वक नहीं चल सकता। सारी दुनिया में एक भी देश का उदाहरण ऐसा नहीं मिलेगा जिसका उत्थान केवल राज्य की शक्ति द्वारा हुआ हो। कोई भी राज्य बिना लोगों की शक्ति के आगे नहीं ब‹ढ सकता।

१. निम्नलिखित गद्यांश को प‹ढकर पूछे गए प्रश्नों के लिए सही विकल्प चुनकर लिखिए- १
गीता के इस उपदेश की लोग प्राय: चर्चा करते हैं कि कर्म करें, फल की इच्छा न करें। यह कहना तो सरल है पर पालन उतना सरल नहीं। कर्म के मार्ग पर आनन्दपूर्वक चलता
हुआ उत्साही मनुष्य यदि अन्तिम फल तक न भी पहुँचे तो भी उसकी दशा कर्म न क रने वाले की अपेक्षा अधिकतर अवस्थाओं में अच्छी रहेगी, क्योंकि एक तो कर्म करते हुए
उसका जो जीवन बीता वह संतोष या आनन्द में बीता, उसके उपरांत फल की अप्राप्ति पर भी उसे यह पछतावा न रहा कि मैंने प्रयत्न नहीं किया। फल पहले से कोई बना-
बनाया पदार्थ नहीं होता। अनुकूल प्रयत्न-कर्म के अनुसार, उसके एक-एक अंग की योजना होती है। किसी मनुष्य के घर का कोई प्राणी बीमार है। वह वैद्यों के यहाँ से जब
तक औषधि ला-लाकर रोगी को देता जाता है तब तक उसके चित्त में जो संतोष रहता है, प्रत्येक नए उपचार के साथ जो आनन्द का उन्मेष होता रहता है- यह उसे कदापि न
प्राप्त होता, यदि वह रोता हुआ बैठा रहता। प्रयत्न की अवस्था में उसके जीवन का जितना अंश संतोष, आशा और उत्साह में बीता, अप्रयत्न की दशा में उतना ही अंश केवल शोक और दुख में कटता। इसके अतिरिक्त रोगी के न अच्छे होने की दशा में भी वह आत्म-ग्लानि के उस कठोर दुख से बचा रहेगा जो उसे जीवन भर यह सोच-सोच कर होता कि मैंने पूरा प्रयत्न नहीं किया। कर्म में आनन्द अनुभव करने वालों का नाम ही कर्मण्य है। धर्म और उदारता के उच्च कर्मों के विधान में ही एक ऐसा दिव्य आनन्द भरा रहता है कि कर्ता को वे कर्म ही
फल-स्वरूप लगते हैं। अत्याचार का दमन और शमन करते हुए कर्म करने से चित्त में जो तुष्टि होती है वही लोकोपकारी कर्मवीर का सच्चा सुख है।

Marking Scheme - Biology (Theory)
Expected Answers/Value Points
 
General Instructions :
 
The Marking Scheme and mechanics of marking
1 In the marking scheme the marking points are separated by commas, one oblique line (/) indicates acceptable alternative, two obliques (//) indicate complete acceptable alternative set of marking points.
2. Any words/phrases given within brackets do not have marks.
3. Allow spelling mistakes unless the misspelt word has another biological meaning. Ignore plurals unless otherwise stated in the marking scheme.
4. In any question exclusively on diagram no marks on any description. But in questions on descriptions, same value points may be marked on the diagrams as a subsitute.
5. All awarded marks are to be written in the left hand margin at the end of the question or its part.
6. Place a tick () in red directly on the key/operative term or idea provided it is in correct context. Place “Half-tick” ½ wherever there is ½ mark in the marking scheme. (Do not place tick indiscriminately just to show that you have read the answer).
7. If no marks are awarded to any part or question put a cross (×) at incorrect value portion and mark it zero (in words only).
8. Add up ticks or the half ticks for a part of the question, do the calculation if any, and write the part total or the question total in the left hand margin.
9. Add part totals of the question and write the question total at the end. Count all the ticks for the entire question as a recheck and draw a circle around the question total to confirm correct addition.
10. If parts have been attempted at different places do the totalling at the end of the part attempted last.
11. If any extra part is attempted or any question is reattempted, score out the last one and write “extra”.
12. In questions where only a certain number of items are asked evaluate only that many numbers in sequence as is asked ignoring all the extra ones even if otherwise correct.
13. Transcribe the marks on the cover page. Add up question totals. Recheck the script total by adding up circled marks in the script.
14. Points/answer given in brackets in marking scheme are not so important and may be ignored for marking.
