That Sunday Morning
Listen to your teacher read a part of the story. Go through the questions given below in section I. Answer them in one or two sentences.
My father was posted in Patna. On the first Sunday there, my brother and I decided to do a little exploring on our bikes. It was still very early in the morning, and only a few people were about. The roads were good and the trees lining them were shady. There were no imposing buildings or monuments as there are in Delhi, from where we had just come.
After cycling for about half-an-hour, my brother got bored and said, " Come on, I'll race you to that corner. The loser treats the other to a chocolate, okay?"
“Okay, one, two, three!" I said, and then we were off.
This was not the first time we had raced. Only my brother had invariably beaten me and then crowed about it for days. I was determined to win this time. I pedalled as fast as I could. My legs ached and my skirt billowed out, threatening to hit my face. The trees on either side of the road had become one green blur. My hair blew behind me and my lungs were bursting for air. Soon I drew level with my brother and then gradually I moved ahead.
