QUESTION: 51

In the town where Abhiram painted pictures of gods and goddesses, everyone knew him only as a stranger who had always painted pictures for a living. No one knew him or his past. He would think, I was once wealthy but its all gone now… and in a way it is for the better. I mediate on various forms of God all day long now, my bread and butter comes from that. I also place His image in all the houses. No one can take away the respect and goodwill this earns me. One day the royal Minister passed away. The king employed a new Minister from a foreign land. The whole town was abuzz with the news but that day Abhiram’s fingers stilled to a halt. Abhiram’s father had adopted an orphan boy whom he raised and trusted more than his own son, Abhiram. But the boy had turned traitor and had stolen the old man’s fortune from him. The very same man had now come to the new kingdom as the new Minister. The room where Abhiram painted was also his puja room. He went in, folded his hands and queried, "Is this why I have spent so many years meditating on you through every colour, every line ? Is this how you reward me with such an insult ?"
The chariot pageant was coming up. At the fairgrounds many people from different lands thronged to buy Abhiram’s pictures. In that throng, there was a little boy watched over by servants. He picked out one picture. Abhiram turned to the child’s attendant and asked, who is this boy? He replied, The only son of our royal Minister. Abhiram covered his paintings with a cloth and said, I will not sell my pictures. Which only made the child want the picture even more. He came home and sulked in the corner and refused to eat. The Minister sent a bagful of coins for Abhiram, but the bag came back to the Minister untouched. The Minister said to himself, What audacity ! The more he was pestered, the more dogged was Abhiram’s refusal and he thought, "This is my victory."
Every morning the first thing Abhiram did was to paint a picture of his own beloved deity. This was the only form of worship known to him. One day he realized the painting wasn’t to his satisfaction. Something looked different. It wasn’t looking right. He felt tormented. As the days passed, the subtle difference became more apparent until one day Abhiram looked up, startled by the realization… he could see it clearly now – the face of his God was beginning to look more and more like the Minister. He hurled his brush to the ground and said. So the Minister wins ! That same day he took the painting to the Minister asked, How much ? Abhiram said, You robbed me of my devotion to God I shall gain it back by gifting you this picture. The Minister had no idea what he was talking about.

Q. 

Which of the following cannot be said about Abhiram ?
(A) Abhiram used to meditate and pray every morning that God would make him prosperous.
(B) Abhiram refused to sell the painting to the little boy because the boy did not speak to him politely.

He hurled his brush to the ground and said. So the Minister wins ! That same day he took the painting to the Minister asked, How much ? Abhiram said, You robbed me of my devotion to God I shall gain it back by gifting you this picture. The Minister had no idea what he was talking about.

Q. What made Abhiram finally gift the painting to the Minister ?

Solution:
QUESTION: 60

In the town where Abhiram painted pictures of gods and goddesses, everyone knew him only as a stranger who had always painted pictures for a living. No one knew him or his past. He would think, I was once wealthy but its all gone now… and in a way it is for the better. I mediate on various forms of God all day long now, my bread and butter comes from that. I also place His image in all the houses. No one can take away the respect and goodwill this earns me. One day the royal Minister passed away. The king employed a new Minister from a foreign land. The whole town was abuzz with the news but that day Abhiram’s fingers stilled to a halt. Abhiram’s father had adopted an orphan boy whom he raised and trusted more than his own son, Abhiram. But the boy had turned traitor and had stolen the old man’s fortune from him. The very same man had now come to the new kingdom as the new Minister. The room where Abhiram painted was also his puja room. He went in, folded his hands and queried, "Is this why I have spent so many years meditating on you through every colour, every line ? Is this how you reward me with such an insult ?"
The chariot pageant was coming up. At the fairgrounds many people from different lands thronged to buy Abhiram’s pictures. In that throng, there was a little boy watched over by servants. He picked out one picture. Abhiram turned to the child’s attendant and asked, who is this boy? He replied, The only son of our royal Minister. Abhiram covered his paintings with a cloth and said, I will not sell my pictures. Which only made the child want the picture even more. He came home and sulked in the corner and refused to eat. The Minister sent a bagful of coins for Abhiram, but the bag came back to the Minister untouched. The Minister said to himself, What audacity ! The more he was pestered, the more dogged was Abhiram’s refusal and he thought, "This is my victory."
Every morning the first thing Abhiram did was to paint a picture of his own beloved deity. This was the only form of worship known to him. One day he realized the painting wasn’t to his satisfaction. Something looked different. It wasn’t looking right. He felt tormented. As the days passed, the subtle difference became more apparent until one day Abhiram looked up, startled by the realization… he could see it clearly now – the face of his God was beginning to look more and more like the Minister. He hurled his brush to the ground and said. So the Minister wins ! That same day he took the painting to the Minister asked, How much ? Abhiram said, You robbed me of my devotion to God I shall gain it back by gifting you this picture. The Minister had no idea what he was talking about.

Q. 

What effect did the appointment of the new Minister have on Abhiram's work ?
(A) He changed his style of painting of showing subtle differences and adopted a more modern style.
(B) He decided to give up painting pictures of deities and began to make portraits of the Minister.
(C) He raised the prices of his paintings.
