Section A (Reading) 
A1 Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow: 
Qawwals, it is said, have the ethereal quality of touching the heart and soul of people 
across cultures, religions and race. However, these ambassadors of universal 
brotherhood and divine love are fighting their own personal battle against the crass 
exploitations of qawwali as an art form. 
In a world of remixes and „filmi qawaalis?, this spiritual singing form is dying its own 
slow death. One of the few remaining bastions where this art is flourishing is the 
tomb of the famous 14
th
 century saint Nizamuddin Auliya. A place where this singing 
style originated has become the only refuge for the peddlers of this art form. 
“It is not just an art form, it is a concept which played a big part in bringing the 
country?s two major communities together. The genesis of qawwali took place by the 
intermingling of Hindu culture, local dialects and Islamic concepts,” says Ghulam 
Hussain Nizami, explaining the origin of qawwali. 
“The word qawwali is actually derived from the word „qoul? or dictum. A qawwal is 
actually a person who sings the dictums of the prophet and the praises of the Lord. 
The compositions of qawwali are musical interpretations of religion and bring forth 
the deep spirituality of the people,” Nizami explains. 
For most of these qawwals, the only source of income is the money gifted by people 
who visit the tomb of Nizamudin Auliya. In order to survive, many of these singers 
have turned their backs on practising this art in its true form. 
“I have been singing from the age of five. Generations of my family have practiced 
this art. However, most of the qawwals that I have seen are living their lives in abject 
poverty. There is no government help nor does the waqf help us,” said Hamsar 
Hayat, who has now taken up singing bhajans in mandirs to supplement his income. 
Even though the origins of qawwali are in India, Pakistani qawwals seem to have a 
headstart over their Indian counterparts. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rahat Ali Khan, 
Sabri brothers have garnered considerable fame and fortune throughout the world. 
   
A1.1 State whether the following statements are true or false:-  (2) 
(i) Nizamuddin Auliya is a famous 14
th
 century qawwal. 
(ii) Qawwali is an art form that synthesizes Hindu culture and Islamic 
concepts.

  The Two Roads 
 There was a path 
Deep in the woods. 
Once it forked- 
The bad, the good. 
I choose to take 
The left-hand path, 
 
I did not know, 
I had no map. 
Now this road that I travel 
Is dirty and battered. 
It?s littered with dreams 
That are broken and tattered. 
  
Paved with wrong doings 
And dotted with hearts 
That were taken from people 
And just torn apart. 
Pain and regret 
Are common here. 
Wherever you turn, 
They?re always near. 
I want to cross 
To the other path, 
 And leave behind 
 This painful wrath. 
 
 I thought I was forever 
 Doomed to walk. 
 And all the gates 
 Were tightly locked. 
 But as I continued,

Section A (Reading) 
A1 Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow: 
Qawwals, it is said, have the ethereal quality of touching the heart and soul of people 
across cultures, religions and race. However, these ambassadors of universal 
brotherhood and divine love are fighting their own personal battle against the crass 
exploitations of qawwali as an art form. 
In a world of remixes and „filmi qawaalis?, this spiritual singing form is dying its own 
slow death. One of the few remaining bastions where this art is flourishing is the 
tomb of the famous 14
th
 century saint Nizamuddin Auliya. A place where this singing 
style originated has become the only refuge for the peddlers of this art form. 
“It is not just an art form, it is a concept which played a big part in bringing the 
country?s two major communities together. The genesis of qawwali took place by the 
intermingling of Hindu culture, local dialects and Islamic concepts,” says Ghulam 
Hussain Nizami, explaining the origin of qawwali. 
“The word qawwali is actually derived from the word „qoul? or dictum. A qawwal is 
actually a person who sings the dictums of the prophet and the praises of the Lord. 
The compositions of qawwali are musical interpretations of religion and bring forth 
the deep spirituality of the people,” Nizami explains. 
For most of these qawwals, the only source of income is the money gifted by people 
who visit the tomb of Nizamudin Auliya. In order to survive, many of these singers 
have turned their backs on practising this art in its true form. 
“I have been singing from the age of five. Generations of my family have practiced 
this art. However, most of the qawwals that I have seen are living their lives in abject 
poverty. There is no government help nor does the waqf help us,” said Hamsar 
Hayat, who has now taken up singing bhajans in mandirs to supplement his income. 
Even though the origins of qawwali are in India, Pakistani qawwals seem to have a 
headstart over their Indian counterparts. Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Rahat Ali Khan, 
Sabri brothers have garnered considerable fame and fortune throughout the world.

The bad, the good. 
I choose to take 
The left-hand path, 
 
I did not know, 
I had no map. 
Now this road that I travel 
Is dirty and battered. 
It?s littered with dreams 
That are broken and tattered. 
  
Paved with wrong doings 
And dotted with hearts 
That were taken from people 
And just torn apart. 
Pain and regret 
Are common here. 
Wherever you turn, 
They?re always near. 
I want to cross 
To the other path, 
 And leave behind 
 This painful wrath. 
 
 I thought I was forever 
 Doomed to walk. 
 And all the gates 
 Were tightly locked. 
 But as I continued, 
                                                              
                            
 
  
A footbridge I could see. 
A bridge of Hope 
Called out to me. 
Slowly I crossed 
To the path of good. 
Finally I was on the path 
On which I thought I should. 
Now hidden deep 
Within the woods. 
The one that forked, 
Paths bad and good. 
I once was wrong, 
But now I?m right. 
And before me 
Glows a guiding light.
