Essay Type Questions 

1. Write a short character sketch of Sir Mohan Lal from his conversation with himself in front of the mirror.

Ans.  Sir Mohan Lal occupies the pivotal position in the short story Karma. He is an educated, London trained Indian . The story-writer has studied and focused his character in an interesting manner.
Sir Mohan Lal started critically scrutinizing the Indian articles in the waiting room. He first looked up the mirror. Obviously that was made in India, not at all suited to his taste. That was old and had lost it smoothness and visibility here there. “You are so very much like everything else in this country, inefficient, dirty, indifferent” – that was his observation on an Indian made object. So, Sir Mohan hates India and her people. Everything of India is dirty, inefficient in his eye.

2. Compare and contrast the personalities of Sir Mohan Lal and Lady Lal, especially the way they conduct themselves at the railway station.

Ans. Sir Mohan Lal and his wife  Lachmi are two major characters of the story ‘Karma’. Sir Mohan Lal looks handsome. But Lachmi is short and fat. Mohan Lal has a degree from Oxford University. He wears suit with Balliol tie. He speaks  English fluently like an Englishman. He reads The Times. He drinks whisky. His wife Lachmi is a typical Indian woman. She is short and fatty . Her common dress is white saree with a red border and blouse. She is illiterate and doesn’t know the ABC of English. She speaks in Hindustani  language.
Mohan Lal is proud and arrogant. Lachmi is simple and unsophisticated. When Mohan Lal drinks whisky inside the waiting room, Lachmi takes chapatties with mango-pickle outside. He makes no haste at the arrival of the train. But his wife Lachmi acts hurriedly after learning that the train is arriving. They are completely different from each other in every sense.  

3. Briefly describe the train of Sir Mohna Lal’s thoughts as he sat waiting alone in his first –class compartment.
Or, Describe the life of  Sir Mohan Lal in England as you find him recalling in the story ‘Karma’.

Ans. Sir Mohan Lal  wondered if he would have to travel alone. It was a Cantonment station and some English officers might be there on the train. His heart warmed at the prospect of an impressive conversation. 
He stared  recalling the glorious days of his life in England. He passed long five years abroad. He was a student of Oxford University. As a student he used grey bags and gowns. He played mixed  doubles in tennis wearing his English sports blazer. He relished dinner at the inns of Court. He also spent happy nights with the Piccadilly prostitutes. Infact , he enjoyed his life in England to his heart’s content.It  was a glamorous life to him. He compares his past life with his present life in India. He hates his vulgar countrymen, their sordid way of living. 

4. Why do you think the story is entitled ‘Karma’ ?
Or, Bring out the appropriateness of the title of the story ‘Karma’.

Ans.. According to Hindu theology man is destinated to have the effect from his own ‘karma’ or action. From this point of view a good act pays us handsomely while bad deed makes us suffer. Khushwant Singh’s story ‘Karma’ has a deeper undertone.  Let us examine how ‘Karma’ affects their lives and shapes  their destiny.
Sir Mohan lal is a native of India. But he hates everything of India. India  is a dirty place to him. Here things and place are inefficient and vulgar. Sir Mohan was educated at Oxford. He spoke English fluently. He followed their ways. He read ‘The Times’ , wore Balliol tie, drank whisky and smoked  only English cigarettes. He felt sad when he found no Englishman in his compartment.But the entry of two English soldiers delighted him. Sir Mohan was ready to welcome them. But  the English soldiers look upon Mohan Lal as a nigger. They throw all his belongings out of the train. They  box him and  push him out of his own reserved compartment.Thus  Mohan Lal receives the result of his own karma. His pride and arrongance  are shattered all at once, and he is punished rightly for belittling his own culture and customs. Thus, the titile ‘Karma’ appears to be apt and effective.

 My Hobby 

  Hobby is a voluntary work done during leisure. “All work and no play make Jack a dull boy.” Relaxation is therefore necessary in  life and hobbies provide it.  Hobbies vary from man to man as man’s tastes differ. There are many hobbies like gardening, reading, numismatics etc.
As for myself I have a great taste for gardening. It is my hobby. We have a small plot of land before our house. I have turned it into a garden of fruits and flowers. Every afternoon I work for an hour in the garden.   I have divided the land into two parts– one for growing vegetables and the other for flowers. At a distance from our house there is a nursery. I often collect many saplings of seasonal fruits and vegetables and flowers from there. I also buy seeds of vegetables. The soil of my garden is fertile. I did the soil, and make it ready for plantation. I also add manure to the soil. Thus the garden is prepared. I have put a bamboo fence all round my garden. I water the plants regularly. After school hours I come to my garden and take care of every plant. It involves hard work but it is not tiring, because it is love’s labour.
It combines pleasure with profit. The fresh vegetables I grow save our kitchen expenses a bit. Besides, we taste fresh vegetables. The flower garden is really splendid. My heart leaps up in joy when there blooms a variety of flowers. I come in close contact with nature here. I feel that the plants and flowers are no mute insensate things. They have a language of their own which I understand. The beautiful flowers remind me of the poet Keats- “ A thing of beauty is a joy for ever.” It  gives me ample exercise and I get fresh energy  to devote myself to my studies. Everybody in my neighbourhood  appreciates my hobby.  Sometimes they pay a visit to my garden.

A Visit To  A Historical Place

Bengal has a colourful history. Obviously there are many places of historical interest in this country. I had a deep longing for a visit to such a place.  I had a chance to visit Murshidabad, the ancient capital of undivided Bengal. 
In a nice evening  I started for Murshidabad with my parents. My elder sister was also with us. We set out from Purulia by train which reached Murshidabad next morning. It was pleasant journey indeed. I saw stations, towns, villages and green fields on both sides of the railway line.  Murshidabad is located 20 kms away from Berhampore, the headquarters of the district. I was very much astonished  to see the tombs, mosques and places.  I first visited the Sabji Katra mosque. It is one of the most splendid buildings of the Nawabi Bengal . It was built by Murshid Kuli Khan. I went to see the great Jahan Kosha Canon next. It was built in 1614 by a Bengali artisan Janardan Karmakar. Its weight is more than 700 tons. It shows  metallurgy skills were of very high quality in Bengal. We also visited the famous Hazarduari Palace Museum, Moti Mosjid, Kathgola Palace etc.  We saw the weapons used by the nawabs of Bengal.We saw  many precious paintings there. I also went to the other side of the Ganges to see the Khosbag where Siraj, the last independent Nawab of Bengal, lay buried.  I also visited  famous jain temples of Rani Bhabani.We went to the Katra mosque. It is now in ruins.The carvings on the temple are unique features of Islamic and , Buddhist and Hindu teachings.
My experience at Murshidabad  is really unforgettable. What a great thing I saw there ! The historical places  took me to the days of Muslim rules in Bengal .If ever I get a chance, I will again go there.
