Question 4
Rev Ian Paul, a theologian and former Dean of Studies at St John’s
theological college, Nottingham argues that the Greek word,
‘kataluma’, usually translated as “Inn” was in fact used for a reception
room in a private house – the same term is used to describe the
“upper room”. An entirely different word, ‘pandocheion’, is used to
describe an “Inn” or any other place where strangers are welcomed.
In that context, the ‘kataluma’ where the people stayed would not
have been an Inn, but a guest room in the house of the family. That
could very well have been full with other relatives who had arrived
before them. “The actual design of homes (even to the present day)
makes sense of the whole story,” Paul writes. “Most families would
live in a single-room house, with a lower compartment for animals to
be brought in at night, and either a room at the back for visitors, or
space on the roof. The family living area would usually have hollows in
the ground, filled with straw, in the living area, where the animals
would feed.” So the incident must have happened in the lower floor
of a peasant house, where the animals were kept.
What year old incident/theory does Paul’s logic contradict?

  • 8. Question 1 • X was transferred to Palestine during early days of Arab revolt, to advise the local inspector General on matters of security. In due course he advised the construction of 77 reinforced concrete police stations and posts which could be defended against attack. His recommendations were accepted and 62 new “X forts", as they came to be known, were built throughout Palestine ,many of them are still in use, some by Israeli forces and others Palestinian ones, while others were destroyed in various rounds of fighting. • For some time during his stint elsewhere, x kept a defused bomb as a paperweight to remind him of the attempts on his life. He once threw the bomb in a moment of anger, only to have it explode against the wall of his office, an incident he reportedly considered amusing. Identify X.
  • 10.
  • 11. Question 2 • Born on 17 August 1889 in an illustrious family, his father was a noted freedom fighter and X himself as a teenager was briefly involved in the Indian freedom struggle during an association with Vinayak Damodar Savarkar and Madanlal Dhingra in London. By the late 1910s, he started writing and eventually wrote The Light of Asia and Shiraz, both of which were performed on stage in London. Both were commercially successful and attracted the attention of a European Y .Z, a noted lawyer then, having faith in both X & Y then gave them financial support for a project which turned out to be a landmark. • Simply X,Y,Z.( 4+3+3)
  • 13. • X- Niranjal Pal ( S/o Bipin Chandra Pal) • Y- Franz Osten • Z- Himanshu Rai
  • 14. In 1996, Mr. Konrad Maurer and his colleagues, Volk and Gerbaldo, discovered the medical records of a certain Auguste Deter. In these documents, X (in the early part of the century) had recorded the following conversation... Id entify X and what's happening or what's the significance of this conversation? • "What is your name?“ "Auguste." "Family name?" "Auguste." "What is your husband's name?"- she hesitates, finally answers: "I believe ... Auguste." "Your husband?" "Oh, so!" "How old are you?" "Fifty-one." "Where do you live?" "Oh, you have been to our place." "Are you married?" "Oh, I am so confused. "Where are you right now?" "Here and everywhere, here and now, you must not think badly of me." "Where are you at the moment?" "We will live there." "Where is your bed?" "Where should it be?" Around midday, Auguste ate pork and cauliflower. "What are you eating?" "Spinach.” (She was chewing meat.) "What are you eating now?" "First I eat potatoes and then horseradish." "Write a '5'." She writes: "A woman" "Write an '8'. "She writes: "Auguste" (While she is writing she repeatedly says, "I have lost myself, so to say.") Question 3
  • 17. Question 4 Rev Ian Paul, a theologian and former Dean of Studies at St John’s theological college, Nottingham argues that the Greek word, ‘kataluma’, usually translated as “Inn” was in fact used for a reception room in a private house – the same term is used to describe the “upper room”. An entirely different word, ‘pandocheion’, is used to describe an “Inn” or any other place where strangers are welcomed. In that context, the ‘kataluma’ where the people stayed would not have been an Inn, but a guest room in the house of the family. That could very well have been full with other relatives who had arrived before them. “The actual design of homes (even to the present day) makes sense of the whole story,” Paul writes. “Most families would live in a single-room house, with a lower compartment for animals to be brought in at night, and either a room at the back for visitors, or space on the roof. The family living area would usually have hollows in the ground, filled with straw, in the living area, where the animals would feed.” So the incident must have happened in the lower floor of a peasant house, where the animals were kept. What year old incident/theory does Paul’s logic contradict?
  • 19. • ‘Jesus was born in a stable’
  • 20. Question 5 • British novelist William Makepeace Thackeray once wrote, “X draws wisdom from the lips of the philosopher and shuts up the mouths of the foolish; it generates a style of conversation contemplative, thoughtful, benevolent, and unaffected.” • Albert Einstein insisted X were instrumental in teasing out “calm and objective judgement in all human affairs”. • The Dutch Old Masters made great use of the X, and later artists such as Paul Cézanne and James McNeill Whistler would recast X as an allegory of life’s slow exhalation into air. Identify X.
  • 23. Question 6 • Oliver Stone wrote the screenplay of Platoon 17 years prior to its release. Stone was so desperate to have X as the lead of the movie, he sent a draft of the screenplay. Eerily the draft was found near to X’s dead body in the bathtub of a Paris apartment. Identify X, whose best-known but seldom seen cinematic endeavor is ’HWY: An American Pastoral’, a project he started in 1969?
  • 25.
  • 26. Question 7 • Former U.S. Marine and entrepreneur Gregory Marshall will give countless people the opportunity to be a part of a legendary ‘network’ that ran from 1883 until 2009. His project which consists 3 of the original ‘blocks’ is centered on a now disused stoppage nestled among century-old oaks and aspens in the village of Dracy-Saint- Loup, with a population of 600. • What is his dream/project?
  • 28. A night on the Orient Express!!!
  • 29. Question 8 • Paul Wittgenstein is mostly famous as a piano artist and commissioning new piano concerti. During his youth, He served in the WWI in assault of Ukraine. • Maurice Ravel, a French composer, pianist and conductor, often associated with impressionism. He liked to experiment with musical form, as in his best known work, Bolero(1928). • However Ravel created something unique which was aptly commissioned by Paul as that suited him most post his WWI experience. Put funda.
  • 31. Piano Concerto For the Left Hand. Maurice Ravel composed Piano Concerto for the Left Hand which was commissioned by Paul whose right arm was amputated after he was shot in WWI
  • 32. Audience Terence James MacSwiney (28 March 1879 – 25 October 1920) was an Irish playwright, author and politician. He was arrested by the British on charges of sedition and imprisoned in Brixton Prison in England. He influenced many a man including Ho Chhih Minh, Neheru, Gandhi and Bhagat Singh to name a few.

  • 37. • Used as a means to prevent pregnancy
  • 38. Question 10 • A ‘X’ (Italian fair view) is an architectural structure sited to take advantage of a fine or scenic view. While a X may be built in the upper part of a building the actual structure can be of any form, whether a turret, a cupola or an open gallery. Or it may be a separate pavilion in a garden, or the term may be used for a paved terrace with a good viewpoint but no actual building. • However the X house and 30-acre grounds surrounding it, forming X estate, once housed the then head of the state, now works as the centre to collect, disseminate and preserve printed material produced in India.

In fact, on March 5th, 1953; while working on his post, he intercepted a very important communication and thus became the first american to be aware of a certain importan fact. What am I talking about, also identify X known to us for exploits in an entirely different field. Question 13
  • 49. He was the first American to hear about Stalin's death
  • 50. Question 14 This famous expression was written by the American novelist, poet, playwright, and art collector, Gertrude Stein as part of the 1913 poem "Sacred Emily", which appeared in the 1922 book Geography and Plays. The meaning most often attributed to this expression is the notion that when all is said and done, a thing is what it is.
