PART-1: READING TEST
1. Read the passage and answer the questions A and B. U-5, L-1
There are interesting traits in Kamal’s character. He was the eldest son of a Prime Minister and later of a President. Yet, his life was very simple. He didn’t take any advantage of his father’s name and office. As he loved to spend time with his friends at Tungipara in his childhood, he loved to do the same during his college and university days. Watching good movies with them in Madhumita, Naz, or Balaka cinema hall was also something that he really liked.
Sheikh Kamal knew that there is no shortcut to success. He groomed himself up as a young man who earned success by dint of perseverance and commitment. When the Pakistan military began its genocide in Bangladesh he joined the liberation war and received military training at Camp Murtee, located at the Himalayan foothills in India. This tall young man who carried himself with dignity and possessed remarkable traits of leadership became the ADC of General Ataul Goni Osmani, the Commander in Chief of Bangladesh Armed Forces during the liberation war.
After independence, Sheikh Kamal could easily remain in Bangladesh Army and pass a secure life but he preferred to engage himself in country building and organizing the young forces to that end. Journalist Syed Ishtiaq Reza, in one of his columns “Ekjon Sheikh Kamal” in Bangla Tribune. rightly says that the unique qualities of Sheikh Kamal’s character, especially his whole-hearted Involvement in sports and culture, are never seen in any son or daughter of any President. Prime Minister or high officials in Bangladesh.
This is unfortunate that just after 10 days of his 26 birthday and only after a month of his marriage with Sultana Kamal, a Dhaka University Blue in athletics, his life was cut short by a group of cowardly killers. Both he and his wife along with Bangabandhu. Bangamata and most members of their family were assassinated.

The Channel, with its cold biting water, the winds, the waves and the tides does not make things easier. The unpredictable weather changes for the worse after a swimmer jumps in. It has never, to my knowledge, changed for the better for anyone yet… Apart from stamina and practice of long distance swimming, one must have the grit, determination and courage to subdue the Channel.
