Long Questions

“1. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

‘Simply by sticking to it,’ said Jorkens. ‘He went into politics. They all do in that country. But he went into them harder than anyone else, and never gave up his ambition. Of course he made speeches, and fine ones, on many other subjects; but all the while he stuck to his one idea. The years went by, and the day came when he had power enough to preach his ambition openly, and he told them how the glory of their country and of its ancient throne would be increased if the post of Court acrobat were created.”
“2. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

Once he raised a hand to touch the lowest of the swings that were hung form the ceiling. But again the applause broke out, assuring him that no actual activity was expected of him. And so; having made his bows, he was led to a seat, his life’s ambition achieved. It must have taken him more than sixty years to do it, since first he came by that strange ambition of his. But he did it. Not many stick to a thing for so long.’  “
“3. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

Whatever the question was it was at once understood: royal smiles were directed towards him, and gentle applause broke out from every hand, which he understood at once, and the old bent form moved on away from the hurdle. Once he raised a hand to touch the lowest of the swings that were hung form the ceiling. But again the applause broke out, assuring him that no actual activity was expected of him. And so; having made his bows, he was led to a seat, his life’s ambition achieved. It must have taken him more than sixty years to do it, since first he came by that strange ambition of his. But he did it.”
“4. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

I will not describe it to you, because everything there, the uniforms and the ladies’ brilliant dresses, was utterly put in the shade by the moment when the doors opened with a flood of golden light, and the old man in his brilliant uniform appeared between them for the crowning of his life’s work. His white hair and the red uniform of the Court acrobat showed each other off to perfection, and his thin figure worn with age was made all the more melancholy by the tight-fitting uniform.”
“5. Translate the following passage into Urdu. (Short Stories Book-I)

‘There was a young fellow,’ said Jorkens, ‘to whom his parents probably used to say the very things that we have been  saying now; and very likely he, as many young fellows do, may have wanted to prove them wrong. I don’t know: it was a long time ago. But, whatever his motive was, he hit on a most extraordinary ambition, and stuck to it. It was nothing less than to be appointed Court acrobat.’”
