In india we are most particularly concerned about the primary necessities of life of our people. We are concerned with clothing, shelter and housing, for our people with education, health and so on. unless you have these primary necessities, it seems futile to talk about the life of the mind or the life of the spirit. you cannot talk of god to a starving man, you must give him food. one must deal with primary necessities, it is true. nevertheless, even dealing with them one has to leave some kind of ideal or objective in view. if that ideal or objective in view somehow becomes less and less connected with growth of the human mind, then there must be something wrong.

11. Read carefully the passage given below and answer the questions that follow :
It is the fashion now-a-days to dismiss god from life altogether and insist on the possibility of reaching the highest kind of life without the necessity of a living faith in living god. i must confess my inability to drive the truth of the law home to those who have no faith in and no need for a power infinitely highr than themselves. my own experience has led me to the knowledge that fullest life is impossible without an immovable believe in a living law in obedience to which the whole universe moves.
