The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveller, long I stood

And looked down one as far as I could

To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,

And having perhaps the better claim

Because it was grassy and wanted wear,

Though as for that the passing there

Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I kept he first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh

Somewhere ages and ages hence:

Two roads diverged in a wood, and, I

I took the one less travelled by,

And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost

2. Read the passage given below and do the tasks.                    (10)

But when I think deeply, I know, nobody knows me. I am alone, and I wonder about the consequences if I take the wrong line. Then, I mustered up the courage to travel along the underground tubes alone. Nirmal had bought me tickets and shown routes. I entered the underground world near Pairs Nord station and travelled for about 30 minutes. It was claustrophobic; the crowd was so huge and shifting all the time. At last I got out of the tube near Vernon. Then, I ascended to the surface of the earth, as it from nowhere, by climbing the escalator. I reached the broad street where vehicles were playing swiftly. I came to a different air, an open space, and I no more felt suffocated. I didn't know which direction I was supposed to follow. So, I asked a passerby. Excuse me, can you show me the way to Musee Rodin please? He did not speak, just pointed towards the direction with his white fingers. Perhaps he was telling me the direction without any words. Most French like the Chinese, they say, do not like to speak in English, though they know it, or love to speak in their mother longue. He spoke in French, politely of course. I could only guess what he said. I thanked him, though he had gone a bit further ahead, and I continued my pace.
