Q1. Sebastian Shultz writes his diary on his miraculous escape from going into oblivion—as doctors call it coma. Write this for him.
Sometimes life takes a strange turn and things that you had heard or read about become true. Virtual lives and realities take concrete shape. I just remember that I was crazy for those psycho-drive games and loved playing WARZONE, DRAGON QUEST etc. My last memory is when my head banged in the accident. After that I have no memory but a very distinct feeling of playing some games. I have read my report in the newspaper, how I had gone into a coma. It can only be called a miracle that I was playing games with another boy called Michael, which I discovered later strange! So very strange. Sebastian.
Q2. Write a brief character sketch of Michael, giving his outstanding qualities that led him to save Sebastian’s life.
Ans : Michael was of Sebastian’s age and he loved adventure, war, pursuits, fights, confrontation and violent games. Like other children of his age he was a computer freak and was really fascinated by psycho-drive games that make one forget the reality and one plays character like a Sheriff, a prisoner, knight etc. Michael is also very kindhearted and tried his best to rescue Sebastian. He was intelligent enough to understand the objective of each game. By strange luck he got connected to Sebastian, whom he had never seen but proved his perseverance and determination in rescuing him from his coma. Michael is a young child but mature beyond his years.
Q3. Sebastian sends an e-mail to Michael on his recovery thanking him for all that he had done. Complete it for him.
Ans : Date : 15 Sept, 2010
From : email@example.com
To : firstname.lastname@example.org
Subject : Thank you note
I cannot thank you enough for being the miracle to save my life. Your perseverance, tenacity and determination prove that you are extraordinary. No wonder you saved my life and now I have fully recovered from my coma. I hope to meet you soon.
Lots of love.
Q4. How did Sebastian’s memory stored on disk end up on Michael’s Computer? How had Sebastian Shultz enter the game? [C.B.S.E. 2012 (T-2)]
Ans : Sebastian Sultz, a 14 years old boy from London, met with an accident and went into a coma and the doctors feared that his coma would last forever. Apparently, at the time of accident, Sebastian was using his laptop to play one of the psycho drive games. He had been plugged into the computer, and when he banged his head, the computer saved his memory as its own. Those games were stolen when Sebastian was in the hospital.
After these games were sold in the market, Michael, who was a computer freak and was really fascinated by psycho-drive games, bought them from a computer fair.
Michael was intelligent enough to understand the objective of each game. By strange luck he got connected to Sebastian, whom he had never seen but proved his perservance and determination in rescuing him from his coma.
