Question

Read the following paragraph and answer the questions given in the end in your own words.

The thing, above all, that a teacher should endeavour to produce in his pupils if democracy is to survive, is

the kind of tolerance that springs from an endeavour to understand those who are different from

ourselves It is perhaps a natural human impulse to view with horror and disgust all manners and customs

different from those to which we are used. Ants and savages put strangers to death. And those who have

never travelled either physically or mentally find it difficult to tolerate the queer ways and outlandish

beliefs of other nations and other times, other sects and other political parties. This kind of ignorant

intolerance is the antithesis of a civilized outlook, and is one of the gravest dangers to which our

overcrowded world is exposed. The educational system ought to be designed to correct it, but much too

little is done in this direction at present. In every country nationalistic feeling is encouraged, and school

children are taught, what they are only too ready to believe, that the inhabitants of other countries are

morally and intellectually inferior to those of the country in which the school children happen to reside.

Collective hysteria, the most mad and cruel of all human emotions, is encouraged instead of being

discouraged, and the young are encouraged to believe what they hear frequently said rather than what

there is some rational ground for believing.

1. What, according to the author, is nationalistic feeling and why is it dangerous?

2. What are the reasons of intolerance among humans?

3. How in the light of the above paragraph intolerance can be minimized among students?‚Äč
