রবীন্দ্র-রচনাবলী وی\ c گ of the smitten, at the African's bidding—how then Of all the sheepish notions in our English public “mind,” I think the simplest is that slavery is neutralized when you are well paid for it ! Whereas it is precisely the fact of its being paid for, which makes it complete. A man who has been sold by another may be but half a slave or none ; but the man who has sold himself He is the accurately Finished Bondsman. অথবা নিম্নোদ্ধৃত রচনার ভাবার্থ লিথ । অবিকল অনুবাদ অনাবশ্যক। (*) The peasant has become more of an individual, with less sense of his duty to his community and fellows. United action by the village has become more rare. In the old days a village would combine to build a bridge, a road, a well, a monastery. They hardly ever do so now. The majority cannot impose its will on the minority as it used to do. The young men are under less command ; they are more selfish, each for himself, and let the community go hang. Hence the community suflers and the individual also. All morality and all strength depend on combinations ; the higher the organism, the better the morality and the greater the strength. With the loosening of this comes weakness, a deterioration of mutual understanding and a lower ethical standard. Both these are noticeable to all who knew the villager twenty years ago. * * * The people are not able to retain all that was good in their old system and at the same time accept the new. They think that they are antagonistic. Japan, however, knows they are not so. * * * The conflict of the old and new is seen continually. Yet must the village-system still endure, as without it there would be only chaos. It is one real and living organism that exists, that belongs to the people and which they understand. I am sure they will not let it go entirely. ৪ । নিম্নোদ্ধৃত (ক) ও (খ) দুইটি কাব্যাংশের মধ্যে যেটি ইচ্ছা গদ্যে প্রকাশ কর । গদ্য রচনারীতির প্রয়োজনানুসারে কিঞ্চিৎ পরিবর্তন ও নূতন যোজনা অসঙ্গত হইবে না।
