(ii) A stitch in time saves nine

OR

A2. Develop a story in about 80-100 words with the following ending. Give a suitable title:
………………….. Thank God I found my Science Journal before the last date of submission

Solution

A1.
(i) Cleanliness is Godliness
Our bodies and our minds are our greatest instruments; they are our identity. It is essential that we treat them with respect by practicing proper hygiene of the body, mind and spirit. A clean body is a hallmark of a responsible person. Only in a clean body can a clean mind reside. And when the mind and the body are clean, it results in a clean spirit. A clean spirit ensures that all the actions and words of the person are also clean. A clean person resists bad thoughts and deeds. He thus rises above the rest and finds himself closer to God.

(ii) A stitch in time saves nine
A work done on time prevents many troubles. Procrastination can often cost us dearly if we are not prompt. For example, if one has a small tear in one’s garment, it would be wise to stitch it up as soon as possible. Ignoring it can result in the tear widening and eventually the garment would be of no use. Similarly, problems in relationships should be addressed before they could turn into big issues. Once we miss an opportunity, we may never get it back. Therefore, it is wise to never delay what has to be done immediately.

A2.
Tomorrow is the last for submitting our Science Journals. Yesterday, I started panicking because I couldn’t find it in my bookshelf. I thoroughly checked my bag and my study table. I even checked under my pillow where I usually keep my novels, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I decided to plead with my teacher to consider my problem. Today at school, my friend who sits behind me tapped me on my shoulder and said, “Is this yours? You left it under the desk.” It was my beloved science journal. Thank God I found my Science Journal before the last date of submission.
