DELHI PUBLIC SCHOOL, JAMMU ASSIGNMENT (PRE BOARD -1) (2019-20) CLASS: X Sub.: English SECTION A (READING ) Q1.Read the following passage carefully: Ilkal, a small town famous for its ethnic sarees ,is in the Northern district of Bijapur in Karnataka .But soon the sound of the loom may belong to the past as more and more weavers leave this art to join more profitable occupations .These sarees are unique for their four to six inch broad reddish maroon bordres with traditiuonal , distinct designs .It is the families of dyers and weavers who together produce the Ikal saree a deep blue black indigo body with red borders .It is woven in cotton or silk, or a combination of both .The cotton , before the advent of chemical colours , was indigo dyed , and the red border dyed with colours derived from flowers . A weaver s living room includes a handloom pit , where the weaver works on the loom , at the same time entertaining guests and customers . The bedroom iscthe store room for yarn and also doubles as the domain of womenfolk of the house .It takes around a week to complete a saree .It is a tiresome work. The wholesale dealer gives us the required raw materials , mainly yarn , and we weave the saree on a piecemeal basis . , he elaborates .

Then , in 1970s , the synthetic German indigo replaced this vat dyeing process .Today , this has given way to naphtha based dyes .the centuries old famous indigo dyeing is now on the verge of extinction . As the new generation steps into more profitable avenues , the skyline of Ikal is fast changing too The most profitable business in the area is now granite , states a weaver ..With this stone being available in plenty here , a number of granite selling agencies and chimneys of granite processing units are proliferating all over . As more and more of the town s younger citizens step into newer ventures like that of selling stones , the loom may become a mere memory .
