9        Read the following passage and make notes :
            Winning involves four important dimensions : self-confidence, mental toughness, winning oriented thinking and the ability to innovate. Self confidence stands on three important pillars  : feeling good, taking responsibility and developing skills. Mental toughness implies that one does not succumb to pressures, either external or internal. External pressure includes peer pressure, that is , the pressure to conform to the values and behavior of our equals. Internal pressure to the gnawing feeling  of doubt that we experience at times when the struggle seems difficult. Winning oriented thinking, as the term suggests, refers to developing the ‘never say die’ attitude. It implies the manifestation of two traits : a constant desire to  aim for excellence and the endeavor  to express one’s inherent talents. Innovation is one of the hallmarks of success. One needs to keep upgrading one’s skills and also responding  to a situation in an appropriate manner with the tools available.  As the saying goes, if life throws lemons (difficulties), one must have the ability to make lemonade. Innovation can be cultivated through focus, practice and inspiration.

     All living beings are dependent on trees in some way or the other. Trees are beneficial for the environment in numerous ways. Trees not only support life, but also remove various kinds of impurities from the atmosphere. Trees serve as a natural habitat, which provides support to a wide variety of flora and fauna. They provide a sense of privacy and security to wild life, apart from providing them with food and nutrients. Trees remove excess amount of carbon dioxide and air pollutants present in the atmosphere, including sulphur dioxide, ozone and nitrogen oxide. In return, they give us oxygen required for living life. Planting trees is very important to improve the quality of air and reduce its pollution. Planting trees help reduce ozone levels in urban cities. Even the biodiversity gets enriched in turn. Trees control the climate by moderating the effects of sun, wind and rain. Trees reduce soil erosion, because they bind the soil through their roots, which would otherwise have been washed away in rain storms and flood. Trees also help improve the fertility of soil. Rich soil transfer nutrients to food, which contributes to human health. The greenery of trees adds color to the landscape and enhances the picturesque beauty of the environment. Trees are great absorbers of noise. Noise pollution reduce planting trees.

From the first days of his movement Gandhiji realized that there was a source of immense and untapped power in the womanhood of India which could most advantageously be turned to the work he had nearest to his heart-rehabilitation  of the villages. His appeal was addressed directly to women. Originally he seems to have been uncertain of the response, or at least of the kind of work that women could do in the national movement, for though he was a passionate believer in the equality of women, he seems to have been doubtful whether the women of India who had so long  time been shut up in seclusion could shoulder the active leadership of  a movement which called for so much physical suffering. But when the movement was actually started, women were everywhere at forefront. In picketing liquor shop in enforcing the boycott of foreign cloth, and in undertaking civil disobedience they shamed men in such a way that Gandhiji continually spoke of them as the main support of his movement.
